The ZARGES cases are by far one of the best overlanding storage systems I have run in my 4Runner to date. Highly functional, incredibly durable, and sealed off from the elements – these boxes push through any terrain we put them through.
It is incredibly sturdy and holds all of our gear. It has made transporting our camping gear a snap and reduces the amount of time that we spend setting up camp because all of our gear is pre-gathered. Around camp we use it as a card table, seat, basically anything we need a small surface for this thing can handle. We’ve decorated ours with stickers from national parks that we have visited and some of our favorite brands.
ZARGES makes great gear and if more traveling photographers and videographers knew about them them, they’d wonder why on earth they ever thought they needed the dead weight of heavy, non stackable plastic cases or worse, Anvil-type cases to protect their fragile gear.
ZARGES has always been one of the favorites of all the ski technicians around the world… as a travel case it’s the lightest and strongest… I would say every ski tech out there, anyone who is traveling, is using the ZARGES box. The ones you see are pretty recognizable, you know what they are.
Three characteristics of the ZARGES that really stood out for me: lightweight, efficient and easy. You really can’t go wrong with these cases. They’re a great example of “buy-once, bleed-once” gear that will last a lifetime.
We take several extended back-country trips each year with at least 5 vehicles in the group. The equipment we carry needs to survive both the rough ride and hard use. For us, keeping our kitchen gear protected, organized and dust and moisture free is a must and the ZARGES Boxes have done just that.
The case is AWESOME! So awesome in fact, that twice in a row at showings down in Denver, it was commented on before the work, and people wanted to know what the story was behind it. At a restaurant-meeting with a client, a waitress asked if I had a million dollars in cash in it.
I’m heading to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska from Laguna Beach, California. We’re then turning around and heading down the Continental Divide and one day, ending up somewhere down around Patagonia! My ZARGES cases are an integral part of our storage solutions. Thanks ZARGES! We’ll represent proudly!!
The trick to making aluminum work? Packing wisely with plenty of interior padding for unequaled security for navigation, communication and photo gear. Chalk the cost off to another form of trip insurance for distant, once-in-a-decade adventures.
