The case outer is quite firm and there is sufficient protection between the skin and the soft interior to help protect the drive. The padded exterior patterning adds a little extra protection to one side only. In one instance, one case with the drive inside was twice accidentally dropped about 45-50cm onto a carpeted stone floor and the drive suffered no damage and continues to work. It now includes a metal clip which will allow the case to be clipped to a belt or to a suitable part of a larger laptop case in the event that it may not be possible to store it within. A riveted attachment point is provided on the back and adjacent to the wrist loop. The case will protect the drive from light rain but should not be considered waterproof.
Although there are slightly larger cases, I have yet to find one that is any deeper but with similar major dimensions. Although listed as suited for several specified drives, it will accept many others and of several brands including many of the 3rd-party enclosures (but not quite all) into which bare drives can be installed.
Possibly the best available universal option, unless someone knows of one better.
I purchased this with a 1TB WD My Passport Ultra. It's the second case and hard drive I've bought together. The previous were the older WD My Passport drive (which is slightly thicker) and a very similar case. I found then, that with the usb cable neatly arranged in the pocket I could only just close the case and zip it.
The Ultra drive is slimmer, and this case supposedly has a memory foam lining so I thought it would fit better. It is a little easier but it's still a bit of a squeeze! The drive fits the internal area perfectly with about 5mm all round but with the usb cable, it has to be squeezed to zip it. There's some give with the zip so once closed its okay.
However, the foam lining is not soft and springy. It retains indentations, more like polystyrene. I suspect this is what gives the case its rigidity. I wouldn't like to rely on the pressure exerted on the drive to create indentations so I gently pre-indented the lining with my fingers on each side to create space for the drive and the cable. Now it closes perfectly!
The net pocket for the cable is a little small, so one end sticks out. It could easily be wider. I'm concerned that the exposed connector will scratch the drive so I've put in a piece of thin foam to separate the two.
I can't understand why the linings of these cases aren't more giving. This Ultra drive is about as slim as they come so if this is a tight fit then other drives must be a real squeeze. It's meant to be a universal case!
With my 'modifications' I'm reasonably happy with it but that's why I'm giving it 4 stars. It can't be difficult to design one of these things better. I'd suggest the other very similar case, described as 'shock proof' with the waffle separation might be a better choice.
The only part which I sometimes worry about is the fact that when I put the cable in the netted part of the case, I'm slightly worried that the USB plug might scratch the surface of the HDD but for now (five years of use) it has never happened.
UPDATE (after three years of use)
The cover still looks great with no signs of wear and tear and the HDD that it was meant to protect still works - so great job you Hard Case Cover. It does really look like a bunker and it fits the HDD in perfectly with no room to move. One thing though, be careful when you put the cable in the cover as the metal ends could scratch the surface of the HDD when pressed together.
UPDATE (after five years of use)
Still going strong, no signs of wear.
If you didn't find my review sufficiently clear and informative or if you have any questions about the item, please comment on this review and I'll make sure I answer all your questions. Thank you very much :)
Nicely made, good loop at the end of the zip and an additional clip to secure to cases, bags, etc.
Highly recommend. Delivery was also very quick and I am pleased with what I bought.
