ZARGES vs. Plastic Cases

ZARGES for boating and fishing

Why choose a ZARGES Case instead of a molded plastic case?

✔ Smaller footprint
✔ Greater volume
✔ More stable
✔ 44% lighter
✔ Reduced shipping costs

Stop wasting your money on roto-molded plastic cases and invest in ZARGES aircraft aluminum cases to improve protection, save weight, and increase usable space. ZARGES cases are smaller, lighter, more durable, and allow for more cargo in the same footprint as our competitors.

In fact, the ZARGES K470 offers 29% more volume to footprint than the comparable plastic case! Plus, the cost to ship your aluminum case can be up to 60% less than a comparable plastic molded one!

Our rugged aluminum cases are easy to clean, weather-resistant, fire-resistant, saltwater-resistant, stackable, and come in dozens of standard sizes.

Options include UN Certification for HazMat transport, IP 65 protection, a family of accessories, foam and finishes, or custom fabrication. ZARGES Cases also offer safe packaging and transport of lithium ion batteries.
