The black 6500 High-Performance Resin Case Hard Case with Cubed Foam from HPRC is a lightweight, waterproof, unbreakable case. It is also crush, acid and corrosion proof and meets ATA 300 specifications for transit cases. The case also meets IP67, STANAG 4280, DS 81-41 standards for vibration, temperature exposure and impact. The interior is a cubed foam that can be configured to accommodate whatever gear you need on a given day. Each piece of equipment can be securely nested within its own foam compartment.
The hard-resin shell is virtually unbreakable, and the interior rubber O-rings keep the case air and watertight. HPRC wheeled cases have a smooth low-profile backing that houses a high-strength aluminum telescoping handle. This efficient design translates into a clean finish on the back side of the case, while the use of aluminum delivers a stiff feel for complete control between the handle and case. The hardware is all stainless steel and bolstered by reinforced corners and hinges. The case also comes with smooth-gliding wheels, soft-grip handle for carrying and an air pressure release valve. The case is sealed with four double restraint latches for a firm closure that will accept an optional TSA (Transportation Security Administration) approved lock.
The case can be used to carry anything but is targeted for transporting delicate, expensive and valuable long photo equipment such as tripods with heads, lighting equipment, tools or even golf clubs and accessories. HPRC cases are used by the military, nautical, police and many other factions to protect their gear from dust, dirt, water, impact and corrosion. HPRC backs the case with its lifetime replacement warranty.
