We just got back a damaged pelican case at work.... Air Canada ran a forklift through it. Fortunately, they hit the box with the tools, not the one with the 60Ghz spectrum analyzer.....

 :o Jeheezuz, forklift ramming a 60GHz spectrum analyzer would have been expensive.

Aluminum or composite cases are better than molded plastic ones.  Plastic molding is susceptible to poor manufacturing processes, and a entire production run can be bad due to poor temperatures, or incorrect timing.  You can inspect Aluminum for manufacturing flaws, but you cannot tell if the plastic cases have flaws because they show up weeks, months, or years after.

However, none are built to resist forklifts!

We once had a case fall overboard - and promptly having an argument with the boats propeller. Ended not that pretty for either, but the gear inside the case was fine.
