Rugged, yet lightweight -- EXCELLENT value and protection.
on July 8, 2015
This is the second Gator case of this model. My first one is a 6U, and I just bought this 8U because I needed a tad more space. Both cases are extremely solid and sturdy, but very lightweight.
I totally dig the rollerblade-style wheels -- they're soft to help cushion bumps in the sidewalk, yet strong enough to survive asphalt without hesitation. I've read that some people complain that the telescoping, luggage-style handles are flimsy, but they seem fine to me. The larger 8U model does seem to twist at little easier (since it's bigger, of course), but I don't have any complaints.
I've also read that you have to send off for the second set of rear rails, but both the 6U and the 8U I bought had them already installed, so apparently Gator did a little update.
Overall, I'm VERY happy with this case. I have a few thousand dollars worth of gear installed in these, and I trust them completely.
