Overview

For 90 years, ZARGES has protected what matters most. No matter whether you’re battling the elements, on location far from home, transporting gear from peak to peak, scoping out overaggressive baggage handlers, or even encountering a grizzly bear in the wild—those who need the best in protection have learned that there’s no substitute for ZARGES.

Precision-crafted with a jeweler’s finesse, the Zarges 40859 is a monument to German engineering. With use, its striking aluminum body shows an unmistakable patina.

The 40859 is one of our most popular cases for good reason. It adorns the back of an SUV, providing another level of organization and style to the back of a chaotic wagon. It is strapped to the roof rack of an overlanding vehicle, snugly containing essential items until they are removed at a destination. It is stacked in the equipment room of a professional sports team, containing vital supplies to be accessed at a moment’s notice. It is the aluminum security blanket for a legendary ski tech, covered with stickers that mark the time as if they were rings on a tree.

All the while, the 40859’s convenient size and perfect design effectively protect what’s inside from the elements, brute force, and even grizzly bears. Its stacking corners withstand over a ton of pressure, protecting the items inside like nothing else.

As with all other Zarges cases, they are rated to operate in extreme temperatures from -112°F to 302°F, offering durability plastic cases just can’t match. And their light weight and single wall construction means that they just hold more than the leading plastic case.

For those who are seeking an additional layer of protection, there are countless configurations customizable to the customer. And our ever-evolving lineup of accessories can change your case’s color, turn it into an aprés-adventure tailgate table, or keep it locked until what’s inside is needed.

No matter whether you’re in the carpool line or above tree line, camping under the stars or nestled in a camper, Zarges sets the standard for protection. In the world of exploration, there is no greater ally than the legendary Zarges case.
