After struggling to haul my kit around in various bags and cases for the past two years, I decided enough was enough and went in search of something more convenient. I’d always heard rave reviews about the ZÜCA Pro Artist case and after careful consideration, I decided that this was definitely the case for me!
Here’s the specifications:
- 41” Telescoping handle
- Aluminum alloy frame is light, super strong and rated to safely support up to 300 lbs
- The removable, hand washable, Insert Bag is made from premium water resistant 1680D ballistic nylon
- 4” Lightweight polyurethane wheels absorb shock and make for a seriously silent ride
- This case meets FAA specifications for carry-on baggage
- Gear platform to carry additional load
- Feet, made of nylon 6, go easy on scratchable surfaces
- Chrome plated, rust resistant screws
- Dimensions: 19.5” height, 10” width, 13.5” depth
- Weight (frame and bag): 9.3 lbs
- Weight (with accessories): 12 lbs
The case is described as, “a flawless new collection for artists on the go who value organization, style, and perfection. What more could you ask for? Protect and organise the tools of your trade and travel in style with our new ZÜCA Artist Collection, – tailored for the artist in you!” It includes; 1 Small Utility Pouch (2.75″D x 6.75″W x 11″L), 4 Large Utility Pouches (2.5″D x 7.75″W x 11″L) and 1 Matching Travel Cover which are all lined with durable, easy to clean clear vinyl (my favourite type of material for transporting my makeup – easy to see and a dream to clean!) which fits inside the ZÜCA case.
The ZÜCA Pro Artist case comes in a few different colours, but being an all black errthang kinda girl, I chose the black case with the black frame which I think looks really smart. I have to say, I’m totally in love with this case. I’m the kind of person who loves to sit for hours organising and stacking and cleaning and just generally having a good mess around with things and the amount of storage bags and pockets that come with the ZÜCA Pro Artist case just make this heaven for me! As you can see from the picture below, my kit fits more than comfortably inside the case and I even have room to slip in a few extra cosmetic pouches, my brush belt and my business cards. The case also comes with a built in seat so you’ll never be without somewhere to sit if you’re on the go or waiting for a call time.
What I love most about the ZÜCA Pro Artist is just how compact it is – I took a picture of the case at the side of my beautiful little Lily just to give you all an idea of the actual size. Pretty dinky, right?! You can also see the rain cover that came with my case – something I didn’t know would be included but that was a welcome surprise!
I’m really pleased with how sleek and professional the ZÜCA Pro Artist case looks and feels and I’m excited to be able to use it on shoots and makeover jobs. I’d recommend it to any makeup artist who needs the convenience and ease of a portable makeup case.
What do you use to travel with your makeup essentials?
