The black/gray ACHC5550 Standard Hard Case from Ape Case is a reliable way to safely store and/or transport your gear. The ACHC5550 is slightly larger than the ACHC5500 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.

      Comments about Ape Case ACHC5550 Standard Hard Case (Black/Gray):

      I use this case to hold my cables, tools, spare parts, and a small handheld sound recorder.
      I needed a case what can hold some weight if things get on the top of it in the car or in the bus. It is pretty solid. I like the dividers. Cute little case, looks pretty serious.

      The build/finish quality of the case is not so great. On my case the gray plastic cover material was not cut off well at the edge of the case, so I decided to break off the excess. Unfortunately it broke off a bigger part what was needed so the wood on the side is visible a bit. Well. It is not for a beauty pageant, so I am all right with it.

        Comments about Ape Case ACHC5550 Standard Hard Case (Black/Gray):

        I bought that hard case to carry my JVC 3D camcorder and Cyclopetal adapter,the padding is so well designed and easy to use (pre-cut foam) I could still cary along extra batteries and charger. It is very strongly built, and at that price it's a steal.

          I really like this case. The price was great and unlike other sellers, BH had it in stock!!!! And it shipped super fast, It's sturdy, the pick & pluck foam is easy to work with. I had fun organising my items into this case. And purchased a second one for a gift.

          No, this isn't quite professional grade; the metal seems cheap and the case is not rock solid, but it is light and works well enough. No complaints, and holds my disassembled Contax 645.

              Just what i needed for my sony hdr pj260v camcorder and accesories. Holds everything fine and secure. Pluck and pull foam is great. Nice case. I wish i had ordered it sooner. The only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is because there is always room for improvement.
