Seahorse Cases are another quality gun
case on the market. Similar
to other polymer (plastic) cases, they offer all-weather
protection and a variety of sizes.
Seahorse cases are high-quality and offer excellent
protection of your firearms or equipment at an affordable price.
The Seahorse SE920 is their largest airline
carry-on hard case, meaning you can bypass the airline checking
process. It will fit in most overhead compartments.
It has wide track wheels and built-in telescoping handle
for easy rolling. Part
of the Hurricane SE series, they are designed to provide great
protection at affordable prices.
And, like all Seahorse cases, can be ordered direct from
The SE920 has outside dimensions of
approximately 24”x16”x10”, and is available in black,
gunmetal gray, safety yellow, and international orange.
Inside dimensions are roughly 22”x13.5”x8.5”. Suggested retail online is $120 (plus foam and accessories;
all Seahorse cases are customized per order).
SE1220 easily holds 11 handguns (x3 rows, or 33 handguns!) in
its 25.5x19.5x13” interior size.
Good thing it has rollers, and strong ones.
A huge case that can be designed to take a whole shooting
day’s supply of handguns, ammo, and accessories.
Foam can be cut to shape.
This is recommended for the transport of handguns,
especially when putting guns within the 3 layers of high-density
foam. It is also
available in black, gray, yellow, or orange.
This case features a telescoping handle and strong
wheels, and features as do all other Seahorse cases.
We ordered it with several layers of foam (they call it
Accufoam, which allows rapid customizing to fit any weapon or
item being carried). The SE1220 is the biggest case Seahorse offers.
If you want to travel to your next out-of-town shoot with
a dozen handguns, ammo, and a week’s worth of clothing in one
case, this one is for you.
Suggested retail is $200, plus the cost of foam and
The SE710CC computer case retails for $165;
about the price of a typical quality leather computer bag.
For the same money, you get many times the protection.
Offering protection from dropping, shock, and water, this
is one tough computer case.
The SE710CC features the Seahorse automatic pressure
purge system, molded-in padlock holes, latches including keyed
chrome metal locks, molded foam laptop insert, lid office
organizer, and a padded shoulder strap.
Inside dimensions of the computer case are roughly
dimensions are 19.75”x15.53”x5.413” (to be exact).
The SE710CC comes in the same colors as other Seahorse
cases; gray, black, yellow, or orange.
Our bright yellow (OSHA safety yellow) case will be hard
to mix up with the other computer cases around the office.
My only complaint is that I would like to see it offered
with wheels, as the case is relatively heavy on its own, without
equipment or files inside.
But, for a thin and relatively small computer case, it is
very tough and a decent bargain.
All Seahorse cases feature an automatic
pressure purge system. This
eliminates the need for a separate purge devise, but is not
quite as accurate as these more expensive separate purge systems
(as with Starlight cases).
All Seahorse cases feature molded-in padlock holes.
All are available with or without multilayer Accufoam
foam. Latches can
be available with keyed chrome metal locks (as in the Computer
Case) or tough plastic latches.
All Seahorse cases feature a lifetime
unconditional guarantee. And,
all Seahorse cases are manufactured right here in the good ol
USA. These two
features alone should help cement your purchase decision.
Seahorse cases are tough.
While I didn’t run over them with a truck as I did the
Starlight cases, these cases take second fiddle in toughness
only to Starlight from cases we have evaluated over the past
several years. The
cases do support a 200-pound southern boy well indeed, without
any collapsing or difficulty of any sort.
Seahorse cases are priced reasonably, are very tough,
have a lifetime warranty, and are American made.
It depends on the application.
I would like to see a long-gun case from Seahorse, but
they do not manufacture one.
If you need a long-gun case, then you’ll need to look
cases are probably geared more toward the industrial user than
the gun owner, but the industrial users are a tougher market to
personally like the positive J-lock latch feature and the
separate purge system of the Starlight case better, and the
Starlight cases are in my mind the toughest gun case on the
market, but much depends on how much money you want to spend and
the application for the case.
If you are looking for a high-quality case, with a
lifetime warranty, excellent materials and design flexibility,
at an affordable price, then Seahorse cases may be the ones for
you. Check them out

The interior of the Seahorse computer
case. Great features such as a practically
indestructible construction and materials, high-density
rubberized foam showing the computer cradle and excellent
storage compartments under the computer cradle, and expanding
file folder sections and cell phone and PDA pockets in the top
of the case.
SE710CC computer case front. Excellent
design and construction at an affordable price. Waterproof,
shock resistant computer travel protection. The bright
yellow color (various colors are available) makes it hard to
miss as well.
Seahorse computer case is a very tough
and durable way to protect your notebook computer and other
electronic accessories. Features include lockable
latches, high density polymer construction, waterproof design,
plenty of storage inside, high impact handles, and a shoulder
carry strap. Besides, it is a different computer case
than probably anyone else in your office.

This photo shows an example of the handgun capacity of
the Seahorse SE1220. Pictured left to right are: top
row, Glock 21 custom by High Ready Tactical in
their proprietary "Artic Snakeskin" finish, Glock 19
with Crimson Trace Lasergrips, Sig P229 with Trijicon
sights, Taurus PT1911,
vintage Smith & Wesson M27, center row, Ruger
Bisley .45 colt 7.5”, SW M63 in .22, Ruger
New Vaquero .45 Colt 7.5”, Springfield TRP, bottom
row, Ruger Single Six Birds Head in .32 Magnum, and FNP
11 handguns on one row. Conceivably,
one could carry 30-35 handguns safely in this baby.
This photo is another shot of the Seahorse SE1220,
showing the depth of the case. Three rows of handguns
are possible in this case. Note that if these guns were
going to be carried in this case, the high-density foam would
be cut to allow a precise fit for each handgun. One
might not actually fit this many handguns per row, but this
shows that it is possible with this large case. This
photo also shows the thickness of the case construction,
latches, and carry handles. It is a very strong and
reliable product, at a good price point.
This picture shows the wheels of the SE1220. With
capacity this large, wheels are necessary. Another nice
touch is a carry handle on each end.
All wheeled Seahorse cases include a really strong
locking telescoping carry handle. This is a really good
design that, unlike many others, will not "fold in"
All Seahorse cases offer interior design flexibility,
from foam to padded compartments to empty. This
removable padded compartment section, with individual dividers
than can be moved via Velcro closures, presents an excellent
method for carrying anything from photographic equipment to
ammunition. All Seahorse cases feature an eggshell foam
lid interior for shock protection and O-ring seals for water
protection. Carry handles are well designed and
Seahorse SE920 with photo divider interior. Note
dual carry handles, holes for padlocks, and well-padded
interior (with padding that is removable). All Seahorse
cases offer a lifetime warranty.
