Nice case very rugged should last for many years.

Amateur Radio

This is a very well made rack system that works great for amateur radio equipment for portable operations. It protects the equipment from damage with front and rear removable covers that lock and wheels to move it around. Yes, it will fit well in your car's trunk or set up well on a table or crate.It is a bit large for aircraft travel carry on however you could look for a smaller case to fit your needs. I would not trust putting it on board with luggage but it appears very strong and durable. You can go crazy with all the options and equipment but watch the weight, it can add up. If you overdue it you most likely will damage the wheels or tow handle. The rack hardware is perfect front and rear and the shelves drill out to fit almost everything. Look on U-Tube for various setups. Nice product!

Quality product, quality company

I have had this case for 2 1/2 years. It has taken some considerable abuse. I will not hesitate to buy SKB products in the future. As a note, the handle broke about 1 month ago. A simple email to SKB, and they sent me a new one for free. That is real customer service.

quality construction

Well made case. Tried a cheaper molded case first, but the tow handle only lasted a month, and I was not hard on it at all. Was able to fill all 8 spaces without having to "force" anything in. Very sturdy, but a little bigger and bulkier than a normal 8U rack. I don't mind. Took off a half star because the tow handle feels a bit flimsy compared to the rest of the rack, but SKB warrants it for life.

Handle feels weak.

The handle and wheels on this unit do not feel like they would stand up to the rigors of the road. Once loaded with a QSC and an old Crown, (with 2 empty rack spaces), the box was pretty heavy. I had to be careful going down a few steps not to put too much torque on the telescoping dolly handle, because it's wobbly and flexes under pressure. I could be wrong, but it felt like it would break if I really tested it's mettle. Fortunately for me, the unit is part of a school sound system and won't be moved around much. The wheels are very small, and don't appreciate going over rough surfaces. If you are on smooth pavement, they work ok. Also, pulling the unit with the handle puts less pressure on it than going up/down stairs. The case itself works well, and I appreciate the smooth and easy action of the latches.
