Toolbox: Bags & Cases For Travel

Choosing the right combination for safe transport and quick access

This Article Features Photo Zoom

The HPRC 3500 is unique for a hard case in that it’s a backpack, making it a great choice when traveling by bike or motorcycle. The adjustable straps are made of soft air mesh for comfort and quick moisture evaporation, while the padded ergonomic back pad is thicker in critical areas. Four extra-strong side loops are molded in for attaching accessories, and in case of disaster, the case floats in water and is double-shell watertight. It’s available in three versions—empty, with foam or with bag, dividers and a laptop case. Estimated Street Price: Begins at $325.

For the ultimate in travel protection, the Pelican 0500 Transport Case provides a watertight, crushproof and dustproof transport solution. Easy-open Double Throw latches allow fast access, and double wide-grip, fold-down handles make lifting easier. Dual Integrated Automatic Pressure Equalization valves keep your gear safe during rapidly changing altitudes, and an outer Document Container holds important documents like shipping and identification information where they’re accessible. An optional caster-wheel kit with brakes is available, and the 0500 can be inverted into a pallet mode to act as an airtight cover. List Price: $899.
