If you are like me and prefer hard camera cases that can bounce around the truck and to stack things on,,
then run out to your local Target or Lowes store and look for a Sterilite 33 gallon plastic storage box.
I was cleaning over the weekend and had a Sterlite 33 gallon,,, so I emptied it out and yep the HPX500 - softcase and all fit in it like a dream, with extra room for your laptop.. It is not a hard-hard case, but for less than 20 bucks, it will put a tougher shell around your HPX softcase.. It should work great for those who have multi-HPX 500s and a truck, for the cases are stackable... And they do not look like they have a 20k camera in them also, which might have a benefit for some locations..
