These guys spawned from the original big version (100 series) to be a better fit for all the smaller electronics that are becoming common carry. Such items include: cell phones, PDAs, digital cameras, GPS devices, MP3 players and other goods such as eye protection. The interior of the case has a soft lining to be nice to whatever you decide to put in there. One of the main features of this case is that it is indeed "hard". I'm not a huge guy, but I was able to put my knee on the front / side of the case and let all my body weight go on it, resulting only in slight flex of the case. The wearer can be quite confident whatever they put in the case will not be smashed.
The opening of the case creates a water resistant seal and uses a simple metal snap. The extended length of the material that the snap is connected to makes it easier to open up. If desired, the top can be taken totally off. Another cool feature is that the 75 hardcase comes in both short Malice clip version and a belt clip version. Thus the user can choose between the ease of taking on/off of the belt version vs. the security of the Malice clip version. The only draw back is that the nature of a hardcase is not to change shape, so whatever one puts in there is almost guaranteed to not be a perfect fit and will bang around during heavy user movement. Simply putting in any form of padding like foam sheets or bubble wrap will solve this issue. Currently available in Black, Tan, and Foliage Green.
