Applications for Custom Soft Cases

Custom soft cases serve many industries and applications. Regardless of your business, our experienced team can customize the ideal custom soft case to highlight your brand, protect your products, and assist with sales advancement.


Military applications require lightweight but durable padded equipment cases that not only accommodate mobile deployment but allow for easy, safe storage and transportation. To ensure that we get the most accurate fit, we start by measuring the equipment. An example of a military equipment bag we’ve designed had 300/600 denier nylon on the exterior with a 1/4″ closed cell foam lining. In addition, we can add pockets, pouches, and zippers for storage of accessories and dependable closure. We can also incorporate Nylon webbing, which provides a sturdy, secure handle.

Sales Force Samples

When your sales team depends on traveling with samples to client consults or trade shows, our design team can take your specifications and create the ideal padded carrying case for protecting your sensitive goods. Sales representatives enjoy easy carrying, as well as the professional presentation and display that allows your customers to view the entire range of products.

Soft Cases for Electronics

Electronics are sensitive to many factors, including sudden movement, falls, or rough handling. When you need to safely transport electronic devices, such as cameras, media players, tablets, and computers, we can specially design soft padded cases to provide optimal portability, fit, and protection.

Materials for Soft Carrying Cases

Our premium materials provide the freedom to choose from a wide range of qualities, such as water resistance, aesthetics, and durability. Examples include:

  • 200 Denier Nylon Oxford. Customers often choose this lightweight cloth for lining bags or pockets.
  • 400 Denier Nylon Pack. Available in a wide range of colors, this medium weight nylon cloth is also compliant with RoHS guidelines.
  • 600/300 Denier Nylon. This PVC coated nylon provides durability and performance, and is often used for luggage and many of our custom bags.
  • 1000 Denier Nylon. Also known as Cordura, this heavy-duty, high-strength fabric is ideal for heavy-use applications such as military equipment or sales samples.
  • 12 oz. Vinyl with Nylon Scrim. This material is a very durable, easy to clean, fire retardant, and waterproof.
