Hard case for the Reddi and 6 slot API lunchbox?

Any suggestions, experience for both? I do a lot of mobile recording, have a water tight hard case by SKB for the StudioLive board. Looking for something similar.

For the REDDI find a Pelican Dealer. You'll need custom laser foam cut outs using a heavy foam, REDDI is too heavy to use in the "size it yourself" foam that some cases come with. I learned that the hard way. Heavy units will bounce around inside the plastic case and get damaged.

For the lunch box I'd get a full on roadcase from Jan Al. The pelican will actually be a larger case, be harder to handle and you have to remove the lunch box completely from the pelican to use it. The lunch box can be fitted to a shock mounted roadcase it stays in all the time, the front and back will come off. So the few hundred you save in pelican will be spent in hassles getting it in and out of a pelican, with a lot of wear and tear over time on the foam as you put it in and take it out. Pelicans work great if the items are not heavy. A Jan Al roadcase will last a LONG time.

Btw, would pelican cases themselves laser cut the foam? Any recommendations?
