The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is the company’s newest portable hard drive. As the “extreme” in its name gives away, it’s both drop- and water-resistant, with an IP55-rating, and is compact enough to fit in your pocket. For anybody storing hi-res photos and videos, this little SSD is capable of up to 550MB/s transfer speeds, if using the USB Type-C to Type-C connector that comes in the box (it also comes with a USB Type-C to USB 3.1 Type-A adapter). Mac or PC, the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is compatible with either.

The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is available now in four different storage capacities, starting at 250GB and working its way up to 2TB. Depending on their needs, one model is the perfect travel gadget for adventure photographers who don’t want to waste room in their pack with an extra heavy SSD.
