Hardigg Storm Case – iM2950


2009-01-201Where in the world am I today?: North Vancouver, BC, Canada

I’m a huge fan of hardware that just works and for years used a hard case that was virtually bullet proof. Mind you, that bullet proof case also weighed about 30 pounds (13.5 kg) when it was empty. This was fine back in the days when airlines would allow you to carry cases up to 70 pounds (32 kg), but when the restrictions dropped to 50 pounds (22.5 kg) I needed to re-examine things and look at how I could reduce the overall amount of weight I was carrying.

2009-01-20bI remember specifically walking through Miami Airport and seeing a guy zip past with a cool looking carry on case and out of the corner of my eye was able to see the Storm Cases logo on it. When I got home I looked up Storm Cases on the Internet and with in weeks had one waiting for me to customize it with dividers to suit my specific needs.

The other case I considered at the time was the Pelican 1650 made by Pelican Cases, but I opted for the Storm Case iM2950 because I preferred Storm Cases latches, the style of the grips on the carry handles and the sliding handle and wheel hardware. The real clincher for me though was the fact that Storm Cases came in better colors. I opted for a bright yellow that is in keeping with my costume/character and had an additional cover made for the case to keep the yellow looking as good as possible. 

After two and a half years of dragging the case around the globe I’m happy to report that I haven’t had a single problem with it. It just works.
