Solid as a tank and an outstanding value

I was looking for a hard roller case to carry around the heft of my camera gear, and needed it to be small enough to be carried on international flights. In steps in the Hardigg iM2500. It's well designed and does the job wonderfully. I bought the optional lid organizer to store my small knick knacks as well. The locking mechanism is buttery smooth in operation. Extremely easy to open and close and superior to the competition's. There are a few small negatives: a) the side of the case where the wheels are has gotten scuffed due to the case being stood on its end. There are no ''feet'' for lack of a better term to protect the wall of the case, so in essence the entire side wall can scrape concrete or whatever surface you're on when you stand it up on its wheels. b) the padded dividers aren't as versatile as the competitor's and makes smart packing a bit more difficult. I wish they offered different sized dividers but the only ones that came with it are all the same small size. You HAVE to have those two long dividers there that run along the center spine, otherwise the smaller dividers can't reach very far. c) Lastly and its somewhat related to this case, but the optional lid organizer is cheap and poorly designed. It's flimsy and needs to be completely overhauled. While being better than nothing, it doesn't compare to the quality engineering found on this case.

Works Great

I bought this for my husband who needed something sturdy to carry all of his tools when he travels. The case had to be certain dimensions, but be able to handle a heavy weight load. He has been using this for over a year, and it is still strong and in tact. He carries all sorts of tools and he can fly with it. It's perfect for what he needs. In his profession, he needed something that could keep up with him and that didn't cost a lot of money.

Easier to open latches than their standard case. This is a nice size for carry on in most aircraft. Good value for the money.

Does its job, but a ''love it and hate it'' sort of case.

I started using this case frequently at my work several years ago. I'd say the case works well overall and does its job, but at the same time it's sometimes a curse. You see, for my job, I have to haul around two heavily protected iPads and a hardened laptop computer plus their chargers/cords, in addition to two rather large quick reference checklists and a huge 900-page operating manual. This case is wheeled so you can roll it anywhere on a flat surface, even if you put a large heavy bag containing lots and lots of booklets and maps on top of it. You can also use it as a chair while waiting for the shuttle bus to show up, or as a foot stool when you're the extra worker during your shift with nothing to do but sleep. On the other hand, it is bulky so it is hard to haul it onto the said shuttle bus without falling off the steps, or trying to lift it above your head if it's stuffed full. If you happen to have 10 of these, make sure you store them in a room that's large enough where these can be placed in a corner. P. S. The product description says this comes with a TSA-approved padlock but I did not see one. it didn't matter for me since when I leave the case unattended, I take out the high-value electronics and put them in a separate, $10, 000 password-protected storage unit.
