Travel: Pelican IM2500 Storm
Nothing is harder on tech than travel, especially when you have to hand over the care of your devices to people who don't care about them. This is why I like to pack my stuff inside a case that can take a significant beating, and in my experience, Pelican cases can take everything that airports, taxis, and hotels can throw at them.
My case of choice is the Pelican IM2500 Storm. This is a lightweight, watertight case with rollers and a strong telescoping handle. The case is not only robust, but it also meets carry-on requirements, which means less hassle at airports.
