We like Slappa and not just because it has the most pun-able name in the IT world, but also because it has some very fine cases and it looks set to continue this tradition with the 600Pro HardBody.
The Slappa Hardbody (now we KNOW the company name was not an accident) is a monster CD and DVD storage case with a twist. Firstly, it has the largest capacity we have ever seen holding over 600 discs (or 300 discs and 300 covers) and secondly it wouldn’t look out of place in an airport.
Clearly the suitcase design and five stage telescopic handle are what creates this second thought in our head, but it is certainly nicer than any luggage I own. The case itself is moulded from xEVA, a hardwearing, waterproof and flexible material that you often see in expensive Antler luggage and the wheels are made of urethane.
Surprisingly for its capacity, the Hardbody is only 45cm long and 23cm deep meaning it will fit into a plane or train’s overheard locker. Consequently, Slappa says it is aiming the Hardbody at major collectors and DJs, though we all know no DJ worth his salt uses CDs…
If you are a music or movie buff or CD “DJ” with more discs than you know what to do with, you’ll find the Hardbody on Slappa’s site from 8 July. There’s no UK pricing yet, but the US RRP is $129.99.
Wow, I got all the way through that without a single innuendo. The therapy was worth the money.
