This is the EWI Tourcase tm BRC-001 Briefcase. Currently, this briefcase is available in 7 colors: black, blue, red, yellow, electric purple, orange and green. This case is also available in an all black hardware version.
This case is well suited for the technician who needs something suitable to hold a laptop computer, small tools, audio gak, and other special items, and to pack that stuff to the job site in style. There's nothing like an ATA style briefcase to accompany a sound or lighting technician's entrance on a job site.
The BRC-001 side panels are constructed with 3/8 inch hardwood plywood and covered with an ABS laminate finish. The extrusion is all aluminum and the case is assembled with aluminum rivets. Mounted on the bottom of the case are 8 solid rubberized feet for laying and standing positions.
The case is equipped with two recessed butterfly latches on the front which securely latch the case together and which have provisions for small pad locks. The case lid is hinged on the back with a robust piano hinge. The carrying handle is nicely padded, and won't bite into your hand even when the case is packed with 30 lbs. or more of vise grips and lighting gels stuffed inside. The inside is fully padded with 1/4" thick high density foam.
There is also available an optional "dice cut" Pick & Pluck foam insert which allows the creation of custom pockets to hold test equipment and such. If you are using the pick and pluck foam for microphones or other low profile items, 2 sets of pick and pluck foam per briefcase work best. Otherwise, there is empty space inside the lid and the items are more likely to move out of position when the case is carried upright by the handle.
This case is a NICE briefcase style work box which not only functions well but really "looks good in traffic."
