What Cases Offer High End Durability Without the Expensive Price?

Most people are familiar with Pelican Cases. They are of course some of the toughest cases out there, but they tend to be fairly expensive as well. For a consumer spending a little extra on a name brand case like Pelican, might not be a big deal, but for OEM applications an extra $20-$30 per case will add up quickly when you are purchasing hundreds or thousands of cases. Any manufacturer knows there is a fine line between saving money yet still offering a quality product. You can purchase inexpensive cases to save money, but if they are breaking all the time or your industry simply expects better quality then you will run into trouble. On the flip side if the cases you are purchasing are excellent quality, but the price is really expensive you may price yourself out of the market or eat into your profits.

How can you prevent the TSA from going through your expensive luggage?

This one is more of a life hack. If you travel all the time with expensive equipment and want to ensure nothing is stolen or broken by the TSA buy a starting pistol. You know, the ones that are fired directly in the air to signify the start of a race. Track and field events use them all the time. They can be obtained for cheap and don’t require any background checks or paperwork however they are classified by the airlines as a firearm. That may sound scary, but in reality we can use the airline’s rule in our favor. Once you have the starter pistol throw it into your luggage. It doesn’t matter if your luggage contents consist of expensive camera equipment, a microscope or a delicate drone.

Once you check your bag in, declare the firearm with the clerk. A special inspector trained in firearms will check it out and verify the gun is safe. Then they will mark your case appropriately so no other TSA agents will be allowed in after that point. You will then be instructed to lock the case. At that point throw any lock on it. The lock doesn’t even have to be TSA approved. Any lock will do. In fact use a heavy duty non TSA Masterlock if possible which will make your luggage that much more secure.

So there you have it. Protect anything you have of value from the TSA when flying by purchasing a starting pistol. Please note: Airlines require your firearm to be in a hard-sided container so don’t try this trick with your soft sided luggage.

What cases are large, yet light weight?

It seems the larger the case you buy, the heavier it gets. This is especially true with cases like Pelican. It’s often a big problem because the item(s) you’re putting inside the case may be large, but not heavy. What cases are shippable yet light weight?

The answer can be found in our light weight case section: https://www.caseclub.com/product-category/case-club-cases/carrying-shipping-cases/filters/order-ASCpa_total-measurement/manufacturing-method/vacuum-formed/

For example this case made by Pelican (29.13″L x 20.69″W x 17.63″D) is 48 lbs.

Pelican 1660 is 48 lbs
Pelican 1660 weighs 48 lbs

While this case is larger, (36.50″L x 21.50″W x 18.25″D) & only weights 32 lbs.

CC3621MRSK weights 32 lbs
Case Club CC3621MRSK weights 32 lbs

Keep in mind both cases shown above have a lifetime warranty & are ATA approved for rough shipping so although you’re giving up 16 lbs, you’re still getting a quality shipping case.
