Tenba Launches New Air Cases with the Protection of a Hard Case at a Fraction of the Weight

Tenba has introduced Air Case Attaché cases, billed as the ultimate lightweight multipurpose transportation solution for every style and size of video and photographic gear.

Tenba said the new cases 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 when traveling. The cases are strong enough to withstand more than 400 pounds stacked on top, yet they weigh up to 35 percent less than the average plastic hard case.

The cases 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 and zippered interior pockets to organize cables and smaller accessories.

In addition, 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. They are made with a water-repellent 1680 denier ballistic nylon exterior, Hypalon reinforced corners and heavily reinforced stitching to ensure years of reliable use.

The cases come in six sizes — three of which meet airline carry-on regulations — and they available immediately.
