Choosing a Plastic Briefcase
Full info on Hofbauer Megabag cases
Whilst there a literally thousands of plastic case options (when taking into account ranges, sizes and colours), some, such as the Hofbauer Megabag, stand out because of their unique looks, features, or both.
But does that make them a suitable choice for your business when sourcing carry cases?
This Hofbauer Megabag buying guide has been created with providing all of the information you could require when considering these cases.
What are Hofbauer Megabag Cases?
Plastic briefcase style option
Many people will say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or that aesthetics are a very subjective topic. This is certainly true of the Hofbauer Megabag range.
With a style that is reminiscent of briefcases or attaches, some people may feel that they look too traditional (or even old fashioned) in design. To others, they offer a timeless appearance that makes them stand out from a crowded market of what can often be fairly bland plastic cases.
What Megabags offer is a still popular – and different – appearance, that retains all of the features and performance that you would expect from a modern plastic case.
Perhaps surprisingly, Megabag are also one of the most durable plastic carry cases available too.
They boast a double walled construction that provides durability, longevity, and enhanced protection of their contents. It also means that cases can carry up to 40Kg with no issues.
The 4 sizes and 2 colours (although grey is subject to minimum order quantities) means that there are not a huge amount of standard options. However, this is more than made up for in terms of extremely competitive price points and the aforementioned appearance, that lends itself perfectly to specific markets and applications.
Megabag Case Features
Beneficial features improving aesthetics and user friendliness
Besides the unique appearance, Hofbauer Megabag cases provide a number of useful and well-engineered features too (something inherent on all Hofbauer cases).
Please see the illustration and notes below for further details.
Catches: The durable, easy to use latches are in keeping with the rest of the cases’ design, whilst also remaining easy to use and long lasting.
Double Wall Construction: The cases boast a unique double wall construction. This provides enhanced strength, as well as protection of the contents within the cases (as the air “pocket” can help to absorb shock caused by mishandling).
Handle: The separate, recessed handle is not only comfortable to use, but also folds flat to minimise space in storage / transit.
Scratch Resistant Surface: The high quality, blow moulded polypropylene is extremely resistant to scratches and scuffs, ensuring that the cases look newer for longer (even if used for heavier duty applications such as equipment cases for service engineers). The pattern on the case surfaces also helps to reduce marking on the main body of the case too.
Moulded Feet: The moulded feet are durable and stable, allowing the cases to be stood upright with ease. The bottom section of the case also incorporates a large, living hinge for added stability.
Lockable: Hofbauer Megabag cases are lockable using a standard padlock (available separately).

Typical uses for Hofbauer Megabag cases
Despite the size range being (relatively) small, Megabag cases can be used for a wide range of diverse applications.
Please see below for some of the most common of these.
Due to their double wall construction, Megabag cases are a good option for use as equipment cases for service engineers / field operatives.
Although they do not offer the full waterproof protection of the tougher moulded options (such as Storm or Explorer cases), these can sometimes be over specified (and therefore cost significantly more) than Megabags. This makes Megabag perfect for mid – heavy duty uses.
Professionals that could use cases such as this include surveyors, engineers, service personnel, installation crews and many others.
The subtle appearance of Megabag cases means that they are often used by forensics and crime teams when attending sites. The fact that the cases can also be locked is also another huge plus for uses of this nature (where security of equipment or samples taken can be of extreme importance).
Solicitors / Surveyors / Management
The more traditional appearance of Megabag cases also means that they can sometimes be used by professionals that typically only carry items such as paperwork, hard drives, laptops and so on, but who may need an added level of security.
Again, the lockable feature of the cases proves useful here, but the subtle appearance can also make the cases less likely to be stolen.
Certain industries will respond better to products and presentations that provide a certain appearance. And this is true of the sample cases used to present product too.
As such, Megabags can be a good choice for use a sales rep sample case when presenting products into organisations such as museums, libraries and traditional industries.
