        This case get ugly very fast, after three flights it is very ugly on the flat surfaces.
        The foam is easy to cut, just don't use a pointy blade knife, a scalpel with curved edge will make a much nicer cut in the foam.

          The 3220 is a firearms case and is much deeper than the usual cases. After some careful foam cutting I can put an entire 2 man load-out in it.

              bought this for anything that would need protection while taveling. it is big, but, i cannot imagine anything getting damaged, even in the least while in this case. i had forgotten about the wheels, but they came in real handy the first time i used it.

                The foam is super easy to cut and it's just a great case!

                  This case has proven to be as tough as they claim. Removing the foam and using a soft case makes this a great travel case for several firearms and accessories. Only drawback is its size when you dont have a large storage area in your vehicle.

                  Comments about iM3220 Storm Case with Foam (Black):

                  The case was a little heavier than was expecting. It is a tough product, if you need to protect sensative equipment during transporting this is a great item. I have no qualms about placing expensive photographic equipment in the hands of the airline baggage handlers any longer. It was not difficult in shaping the foam padding, I used an electric carving knife and it worked well.

                    I am a location sound recordist and use this case to get field recording gear to and from film and video production locations. It holds everything I need securely. You can use an electric knife (the filet version is best) to carve the foam to fit each piece of gear. Voila! A complete field sound production kit in a watertight, airtight, solid case.

                    The case is well-engineered, well-made, and well worth the price.

                    And it makes me looks professional too

                      Excellent case. I'm using it to store/transport a Celestron 130SLT Telescope and its goto motorized mount. The case came with foam, but not the pick-n-pluck foam, so you'll need to cut the foam yourself. I found the best way to cut it is to use a sharp, heated (with a torch) knife.
