At Kangaroo Cases, we create the toughest custom ATA cases, standard cases, and footlockers to protect your valuable assets. Based in Dallas, Texas, we're passionate about delivering the best quality products and being your go-to case heroes that protect like a mother.

Traveling can be exciting and enjoyable, but it also comes with a fair amount of risk. Losing or damaging your valuables while on the go can ruin your trip and lead to significant financial losses.

That’s why it’s important to invest in reliable, American-made road cases that keep your belongings safe and secure.

Why Build Quality Matters for Road Cases

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for.

Years ago, the road case industry took a turn for the worse. Cheap, Chinese-made cases became the new standard. Due to poor construction, these cases didn’t hold up. Even if they had, the lower costs that made them so attractive are no longer available due to high tariffs and global economic uncertainty.

We at Kangaroo Cases weren’t thrilled when cheaply made, imported cases became standard. Our top priority isn’t keeping costs low — it’s build quality.

After all, road cases are designed to safeguard your most valuable possessions, whether they be expensive AV equipment or your child’s belongings traveling with them to summer camp. Nobody wants their case to fall apart after just a few uses — with their items inside it.

How Road Cases Are Typically Built

Unfortunately, most road case manufacturers still prioritize cost above all else. They cut corners by using the least expensive materials they can get their hands on, and case quality suffers.

Initially, customers are excited by the low cost, but end up with dashed hopes when they suffer from — you guessed it — damaged possessions.

How Kangaroo Cases Are Built

Every single Kangaroo Case is handcrafted by master carpenters in our warehouse in Dallas, Texas. We’re proud to make all our products in the USA, because buying American supports Americans.

Premium raw materials like laminated birch plywood with shatterproof ABS plastics make up the durable exterior of each case. The interior linings are made of foam, carpet, or paint, depending on your needs, and can be specially fitted to the dimensions of your equipment.

We use TCH hardware and a unique build method to create tight-fitting cases for the best possible asset protection.

Our cases are sturdier and more reliable than the industry standard due to the assembly technique we use, which produce a case that can handle far more abuse than other cases.

These cases are available in various sizes and styles to suit different travel needs, ranging from Air Transport Association-approved cases for shipping in flight to smaller footlockers, also known as camp cases.

The Advantages of Kangaroo Cases

With a Kangaroo Case, you can travel with peace of mind, knowing your valuables are safe and secure.

We design all our cases with the user in mind. They’re easy to set up and take down, which makes them perfect for AV professionals on the go. You won’t have to struggle with complicated instructions or worry about damaging your equipment.

Some other key advantages include:

  • Superior protection: Kangaroo Cases are designed to provide superior protection for your possessions. They’re made of high-quality materials and feature top-of-the-line hardware that keep your belongings secure at all times.

  • Versatility: Kangaroo Cases come in various sizes and styles to suit different travel needs. Whether you’re traveling for business or leisure, you’ll find a Kangaroo case that meets your needs. If not, we’re happy to customize one.
