Condition 1

A few years ago we were in the market for a robust hard case. We looked at all the typical options but came across Condition 1 and found what we were looking for. We ended up with the 55" Long Case and it has absolutely done the job we needed it to do. It holds what we need, was easy to customize the internal foam, has wheels and multiple handles. What more could we want? Continue reading

Seams not as resiliant as they should be, materials that were just not as durable as they needed to be. Continue reading
