Gear Review — Rugged Laptop Carrying Case

I travel extensively with my laptop computer, often storing it in a car trunk loaded with gear. The Rugged Laptop Carrying Case, which is strong enough to stand on, provides peace of mind that my computer won’t be smashed.

Indeed, the case is waterproof, crush-proof, pressure sensitive, and lockable.

For use in the field—say you’re an archeologist recording data at a dig—the Rugged Laptop Carrying Case is an alternative to something like the Panasonic Toughbook CF-30, which is a laptop made for the outdoors that can cost more than $3,000.

At $170, the case essentially converts a workaday laptop computer into a “ruggedized” model for use in the outdoors.
