Weatherproof Wheeled Transport Hard Case with Pluck and Pull Foam, Fits Phantom 3/2 Drone + Accessories, 25 x 19 x 11 in
Weatherproof Hard Case with Wheels and Customizable Foam, 47 x 16 x 6 in
Provide IP67 level dust and water protection for rifles, telescopes, tripods, or music keyboards using this customizable Weatherproof Hard Case from Monoprice!
The IP, or Ingress Protection, rating is a two digit value that indicates the level of protection provided by the cases. The IP67 rating of this case means that it provides complete protection against dust and other solid particles and that it can withstand up to 30 minutes of submersion in water at up to 1 meter depth.
The case is constructed of impact and ultraviolet resistant polypropylene and has a fully customizable foam interior for superior shock protection. A pressure relief valve allows you to slowly and safely equalize the pressure inside and out. It includes a pair of 2.4" wheels on one end and handles on each end, so you can wheel it around or use two people to carry the load.
Note that this case is just a tad too small to provide superior protection to our California Classic and Retro Vision electric guitars. The guitars fit, but provide only about 1/2" and 1/4" clearance, respectively, at the widest part of the guitar body. Measure your guitar's body at its widest point to determine if it will fit with sufficient clearance to provide good shock protection.

Questions and Answers
One thing to note is that other brands like Pelican require you to replace this O-ring over time. I hope Monoprice has a plan to bring in O rings, as they are a replacement part that will be needed in the long run.
I'm very pleased with this purchase and will update as I own this case longer.
PROS: Very Sturdy. Its a good size and I can fit 2 rifles with accessories comfortably.
CONS: The clips are a little tough to get locked in.
Not only did it protect my mono synth and pedal board, it came in at exactly the weight limit for air travel when fully loaded. Besides that it made my life easier knowing that it would get between stages in working condition with ease.
All in all, it was a smart buy for the money.
PROS: * Affordable
* Just the right kind of durable
* Not heavier than the competition but not weak either
* Has wheels and handles
CONS: * Side handle pin is shaking loose
* Can bend a little
* Some people might find it too heavy even though I didn't
With that out of the way, I use the Monoprice Waterproof Hardcase to store and transport an AR-15 rifle. The dimensions allow for the rifle to be stored along with several magazines, an optic and some assorted tools all with plenty of space leftover. have used several different rifle cases from all the major manufacturers, from the budget friendly options to the industry leading models. This case is right up there with the best. Upon first inspection the quality of this case is immediately apparent. The shell is hard and has almost zero flex. It has two sets of wheels and handles on three of the four sides. Inside, the top foam is standard egg crate pattern and the lower piece is precut for easy plucking. I actually prefer the pluckable foam over the solid type, I can never cut the shapes cleanly so the plucking foam is much easier to use. The foam itself is quite solid, enough so to protect what is inside.
The case has an IP67 rating, which is also the industry standard for protecting valuable equipment. This is no budget case the overall construction is rock solid and far superior to the low cost offer on the market. It is waterproof and features a manual pressure valve, has multiple clasps and a eyelet to attach a lock. The eyelet is not reinforced however, though usually this doesn’t make a big difference. The handles are also solidly made and attached. It’s a nice perk to have an extra set of wheels and handle, allowing a little bit more flexibility in terms of transportation. As mentioned before the hinges are high quality and the clasps are very solid. There is nothing loose or flimsy about this case.
Though not drastically cheaper than the competition, this case is a rock solid contender, definitely worth the asking price. It meets or exceeds expectation in all important aspects the construction is solid, the materials are quality and the presentation is top notch. Aside from being well made the case is just nice, it looks good and you feel safe storing your equipment inside. With hard cases you get what you pay for, and in this case you get a little more.
PROS: Quality materials and construction, full featured.
CONS: Regular price is a little too close to a competitor.

Even with the manufacturing flaw I mentioned above, I am happy with the case and would recommend it to anyone who needs to transport gear safely.
PROS: Sturdy. Wheels on one end are nice. Feels a lot like a Pelican with a significantly cheaper pricetag.
CONS: 1 minor manufacturing flaw. The 2 layers of foam aren't cut the same. The grid is slightly off. When I tried to pull out squares to make cuts 2 layers deep, they were off by a little under a centimeter. It's a minor annoyance, but it's tough to get a snug fit like that.
This one fits the bill. Wheels, positive latching, very sturdy. I noticed that the interior of the case has molded-in notches that look like they're designed for a divider system, but there doesn't seem to be anything of the sort of sale (yet?).
PROS: Sturdy, well-made, less expensive.
CONS: A bit on the heavy side.
