As if not more durable than the name brand cases of this type. I made an insert from plastic to store the large quantities of turntable cartridges i own. Great box for that. Throw it out the car window or stepped on by drunks...whatever s in it will survive!
I have 3 of these and they're great for subcompact pistols. They're small enough that I can drop it in my center console locked and unloaded to meet many state laws (depends on state - some require ammo in a separate container and the case in the rear of the vehicle). They seem sturdy and well made. I did remove the Monoprice sticker from mine for a clean look... They don't have the metal reinforced lock clasp like the big name brand, but all in all they're sturdy and a great value at this price.
I use these to transport my 2 TB external USB External Hard Disk Drive. For the cost and what I use it for its perfect. The construction is good and no issues with the at all. Fit Feel and Function is 100%
