Tenba Launches New Air Cases with the Protection of a Hard Case at a Fraction of the Weight
Tenba Air Case Attaché cases are the ultimate lightweight multipurpose transportation solution for every style and size of photographic and filmmaking gear. They provide the strength and rigidity of a hard case at a fraction of the weight, allowing more gear — and heavier gear — to be stored in the case while keeping the overall weight within airline limitations. Air Cases are shippable and airline checkable, so they deliver the same safety as a hard case, but with smoother, steadier performance and better usability and when traveling.
Air Cases are strong enough to withstand more than 400 pounds stacked on top, yet they weigh up to 35% less than the average plastic hard case. They also solve many of the common issues with plastic hard cases by having stronger, smoother rolling wheels, more customizable interior layouts with softer padding, rolling luggage handles that extend to a more comfortable walking height, zippered interior pockets to organize cables and smaller accessories, and much more.
In addition to their weight and performance advantages, Air Cases provide a user experience more akin to high-end luggage, with corner-mounted wheels and a wide wheelbase to ensure stability when moving heavy loads, lockable #10 YKK® zippers on the main compartment, and a look that doesn’t draw unwanted attention at the airport. Air Cases can also be stacked safely on handcarts and luggage carts because the natural friction between them is more stable than the contact between two smooth panels on a typical plastic case.
Air Cases are made with a water-repellent 1680 denier ballistic nylon exterior, Hypalon® reinforced corners and heavily reinforced stitching to ensure years of reliable use. They come in six sizes, three of which meet airline carry-on regulations, and they available immediately.
