SLAPPA is a maker of durable packs and cases specially designed to protect digital equipment, from laptops to video game accessories, cameras, and DJ gear. Nearly all their products are available in a range of funky patterns as well as more traditional options. Product lines include laptop backpacks, trolleys, messenger bags, CD and DVD cases, netbook sleeves, gamer cases, netbook cases, camera bags, and headphone cases. They have won multiple awards for their products and make a point of keeping shipping costs as low as possible, sometimes undercutting shipper prices. Products are available both online and through a variety of retail distributors.
Many cases feature the brand's signature Duro-Shock xEVA HardBody base material. This provides sensitive equipment with protection from impact damage as well as some resistance to heat and water. But unlike other hard-case materials, the xEVA is shock resistant without being rigid, which makes it unlikely to crack or bend. Softer cases utilize very high-quality, puncture and water-resistant nylon. SLAPPA continues to develop or implement new high-tech materials as they emerge into the market.
SLAPPA's range is very specifically tailored for a wide range of digital equipment, not simply generically. Laptop backpacks are sized correctly and, for those who want to bring along an array of peripherals, some models have removable bags or compartments. They are available in both shoulder bag and backpack styles, and in soft and hard-bodied materials. For those who want a more esthetic sort of customization, additional models use inserts to allow users to swap out different designs for a versatile look.
DJ gear cases can hold both laptops and cords, headphones, microphones and CDs, as well as delicate--and expensive--mixers. There are separate cases for headphones or CDs only, and these also come in an array of both traditional colors and patterns as well as edgier, artistic designs. Gamers will love the special cases for game consoles and game console controllers.
Their DVD and CD cases are specially designed to both provide efficient storage and protect your discs and games. Pockets hold discs on both front and back, using soft, non-woven waffle panels to protect discs from dust and scratches, and high-quality stitching to make sure your equipment lasts the test of time.
SLAPPA's products are obviously designed with the traveler in mind. Hard cases protect sensitive equipment from the ravages of the baggage claim, while many of their laptop bags and backpacks offer convenient "quick scan" compartment design--simply unzip the bag and lay it open to get through airport security checks.
Business customers who don't see a case that meets their specific needs can take advantage of SLAPPA's custom line design and manufacturing services for either a single item or an entire line of products. These can be branded to customer specifications.
