You can spend a lot of money on the equipment you want to protect, so if building your road case cover costs a little more than a single suitcase or bag, it’s worth investing in protecting your equipment. Depending on whether you shape the case into a pocket or buy a molded case, you can also spend less to build it yourself.
Even if buying a case at the best price may not be the main reason for choosing a particular case, you should not worry. There are less expensive cases that offer adequate protection, although they may be smaller and require more disassembly.

A 30mm egg box or convoluted foam can fit very tightly and holds items in place, but 50mm is also available if you want extra security. Denser foam (EVA or similar) provides more support, does not deform too much, and is used for load bearing parts.
Once the housing is secured, it is not a bad idea to tape the hinges off to ensure that they do not come loose during transport.
It houses a lightweight transit case that offers comfort, mobility, and sufficient protection, but looks like a real getaway case and is not designed to withstand roadie rage.
