If like me, you travel quite often for business or with family. You know that airline travel has made it difficult to carry-on the gear you need for the specific trip. For example, I am a voice guy who generally works from a studio BUT whenever I travel, I cannot afford not to have my recording gear with me ..because.... let's face it....I never know when the next big gig will come, right?
I need to lug around my portable microphone, laptop, microphone stand and hush system to make any environment as sound proof as possible when I record.
That being said, I can trust my bread-winning gear to a carrying case that may or may not protect my livelihood OR.. use a protective hard case that I can either check in (yes.. I said check in) or carry-on.
Now ...a plane's passenger area is pressurized, but the luggage area is not necessarily ideal for sensitive equipment right ? well... that's where I was wrong ! As I was very happy to find out (and test the heck out of it) that theses cases called the Nanuk cases are engineered and manufactured in North America by a company called Plasticase. I have travelled by land, sea and air with my mic and I have to admit.. I never thought that I can take the liberties that I have with it, thinking that It would be damaged when I got to my destinations. But the truth is, sometimes, things happen!
You are rushed when packing, and through stuff around, you carry too many things at once and the all-important gear drops off a table at the wrong time, it gets knocked over on a bus or in a the cargo space of a car (crushed by an ice filled cooler...hey its happened to me !).
Your gear may or may not be your livelihood like mine is... BUT you've paid good money for it, you pamper it, you've spent a lot of time with it for research, please or work ... and let's be truthful now....you are partial to it, in fact quite found of it... I KNOW!
So whether you are carrying hiking equipment, scuba gear, film-making, photography, mountain climbing, biking, hiking, kayaking, hunting (gun, ammo or cb's), camping, Geology or Astrology gear...
DO yourself a favor... look into these protective plastic cases... PLASTICASE - NANUK CASE
From anything like Plasma screen protective case to light weight or medium weight applications all the way to professional protection...I mean... they even have models for astrologists, the military, law enforcement, and national security !

The folks at Plasticase are knowledgeable and can point you to the right option for your needs... whether..it IS... recreation or WORK related. I have added links to their websites and Youtube channel, I am sure that they always have new stuff to present as they are very proactive. I have included a review from someone on Youtube who also shares my views on these Nanuk cases PLUS he offers a comparison.
Hope this helped you all !
