The black/gray ACHC5500 Medium Hard Case from Ape Case is a reliable way to safely store and/or transport your gear. The ACHC5500 is slightly larger than the ACHC5450 offering you some additional storage space. With its solid aluminum frame, reinforced steel corners and ABS walls, this case is made to stand the abuse that occurs during normal travel and deliver your gear intact.

The exterior shows black panels with a handsome gray trim. The hinges are padded and also made to heavy-duty specifications. There's even a convenient keyed lock that comes with two keys. In addition, a padlock loop will accept a user-supplied TSA approved lock.

Inside, the case comes with "pick and pluck" foam as well as adjustable dividers to suit whatever gear you need. The foam provides a comfortable and secure nest in which to customize your equipment into their own space. The dividers provide less cushioning but allow you to compartmentalize your gear for organizational purposes.

The interior foam is made from Ape's Hi Vis Yellow material that makes it easy to locate gear within the bag when the light is marginal. Choose whichever mode of packing, foam or dividers, suits your needs. A strong removable shoulder strap makes toting it around easier and more comfortable. There's also a durable hinged top carry handle. The case comes with a 1-year warranty from Ape.

          This case is used to protect fragile medication vials for an aeromedical company. It's design easily lends itself for this purpose.

            I use this case for non-crucial SMALL accessories. Sorry Ape Case but I simply wouldn't feel at ease putting something very expensive in this case. I compare this to a Porta-Brace case and there is no comparison. Good but not great.

            Comments about Ape Case ACHC5500 Medium Hard Case (Black/Gray):

            We use this case to store on-camera shoe mics so they don't get crushed in a larger case with other gear. It's no Pelican case, and I probably wouldn't put anything too expensive or fragile in this case. However, this affordable, no-frills case gets the job done very well for the price.

            It comes with rigid dividers and pluck-and-pull grid foam.

              this case work pretty good for my Panasonic GH2. The pluck out foam made it easy for me to fit all the accessories I needed. I fit my GH2 , two lenses , battery charger, and extra batteries. Plucked out foam was a little too easy to pluck out. Made it to where I was backfilling other pieces of foam, to make a tight fit. Overall for the price the cases work just fine.
