Heading out for the weekend? Wrap your gear in a little spy-tech protection.
Zero Halliburton has been making aluminum cases for over 65 years. The ones you see used in all the spy movies, chained to an agent’s wrist, containing secret documents, launch codes, or weapons? They mode those. They’re also the go-to case chosen to carry the Apollo mission moon rocks, Oscar statuettes, and US Olympic skating team skates, besides appearing in more than 200 movies and TV shows like LOST, CSI:Miami, Austin Powers and Ocean’s Eleven. They also make the world’s only carbon fiber cases, made from the same material used in F-22 fighter jets. I think they’re more than qualified to make something to carry your socks and underwear around for a weekend.
Their new Zeroller series has a slick retro/futuristic look that harks back to the days of “smoking or non-smoking” and miniskirted stewardesses (it was ok to call them that back then), yet is thoroughly modern. They’re made of lightweight, high-impact polycarbonate that’s strong and durable enough to stand up to the members of the local baggage handler’s union, and are resistant to heat, cold and stains. And even though it looks like the same rock-solid aluminum as their other products, the poly cases are softer and have some flex and “give”, while still protecting your stuff.
The line ranges from 19 up to 29 inches, while only weighing between seven and twelve pounds, allowing you to pack more without worrying about going over some airlines’ (ridiculously light) weight restrictions.
Inside there’s numerous pockets, including a removable wet pocket and a laundry bag. And if you end up coming home with more than you left with (went there, bought the t-shirts), a zippered enclosure expands the case another two inches. They’ve also included an integrated TSA lock so your luggage can be inspected, then re-locked for the trip. And heavy-duty wheel system makes rolling through the airport terminals and streets smooth and easy. Bond would be proud.
Available in high-gloss Silver, Red and Black
