The LaCie RuggedKey flash drive features tough rubber construction that helps it withstand accidental drops from heights far above what you'd encounter on your way to the office. That means ultimate protection for your key—and your data.
Withstands everyday disasters
Heat and cold resistance protect you in the most extreme of climates. Plus the RuggedKey is IP-54 certified for resistance to damage from dust and water projection.
Full-throttle transfer speeds
The USB 3.0 interface delivers speeds up to 150MB/s for blazing-fast file transfers that are dramatically faster than USB 2.0. But since the interface is backward compatible with USB 2.0, there's never any worry about connectivity.
Ultra-secure AES 256-bit encryption protects your data from the inside—complementing the RuggedKey's tough exterior. It lets you easily create a password-protected area on the key to securely store all of your confidential information.
Secure cloud storage
LaCie makes it easy to integrate Wuala secure cloud storage into your RuggedKey, so it's a snap to store and share your files, photos or videos. You get a year of one-to-one storage ratio with Wuala (for example, a 16GB RuggedKey comes with 16GB of Wuala Secure Cloud Storage). That means you can back up your key's entire contents or double your storage capacity. Even access your files on the go with Wuala Mobile.

A durable USB key
I have lost data on a thumb drive before purely from age and dust getting into the device.

Love this flash drive
This thing is very handy. Great for a key-ring and easy to spot on a clattered desk thanks to its bright orange protective sleeve. This thing is very handy. Great for a key-ring and easy to spot on a clattered desk thanks to its bright orange protective sleeve. It's fast and comes with a nice amount of storage space, especially if you consider that it's bundled with the equivalent amount of free cloud storage. I love it, not only because it effectively gives me double the space, but because I can easily get at my files from my iPhone or Android tablet. …
