How Can a Bag Offer Product Protection?

How Can a Bag Offer Product Protection?

Protective bags are relevant across a range of industries. Whether you need a bag for mobile engineering testing, repairs or service kits. If you rely on equipment to fulfil your job requirements, investing in a protective bag to store your equipment in can be game changing.


Industrial equipment can be quite fragile and easily breakable, not to mention high value, so it is important that they are kept safe, secure and well organised with appropriate protective solutions for your equipment. 


In this article, we look at what protective bags are and how they can offer product protection for  your equipment.

Protects your equipment during travel

If you carry your precious work equipment around with you all day, there’s a higher chance that you could damage your equipment during travel. 


Protective bags offer a lightweight protective solution for your equipment, so that it can be protected from damage during travel and regular transportation. We strongly advise a lightweight protective equipment bag for transporting your products or equipment, meaning that your critical kit will stay safe whenever you’re on the road. A great quality protective bag is imperative for the safe and easy transportation of all your equipment.


Our choice of padded or non-padded new weave fabric means that you’ll have the right lvel of protection for the right product every time, protecting it against any minor drops and bashes during transportation.


There’s also no need to be worried about the protective bags becoming too heavy to carry with your equipment stored inside. Whilst being incredibly durable, our protective custom bags are made of lightweight materials for ease of transportation and use and can be fitted with wheels if required.

Protects against weather

For equipment that you  frequently rely on, protection against all weather conditions can be an important factor, especially if the equipment is taken outside every so often. If your equipment isn’t waterproof or doesn’t survive well in extreme weather conditions, a protective bag is showerproof and offers a degree of protection from the weather.


For example, if the protective bag is used by an employee who regularly has call outs to clients or customers, there is a chance of getting stuck in heavy rain from time to time, which could damage electrical equipment. Our protective bags protect against all types of weather, so you can be sure of your equipment working in full order each time.

Keeps your equipment clean

Working in any industry, you’re going to want to make a great impression amongst your clients, customers or other employees. A huge part of making a great impression is by looking presentable and clean, so why should your equipment look any different?


Protective bags allow you to keep your equipment clean and protected against dust and dirt that may accumulate from day to day. It can be much easier to clean and dust the exterior of a bag rather than expensive equipment which has been left around, outside of a protective bag.

Keeps your equipment together

When equipment plays an important role in your job, it’s crucial you have a protective bag to keep it together and organised. Our bags are custom made with slots fitted to your specific equipment, so there is a slot for every tool you own.


This can also be a great way of preventing misplaced items as it will become much easier to notice a missing piece of equipment if there’s an empty slot in the custom foam.

Other benefits

Protective bags don’t just offer great protection all round for your equipment, they offer some other great benefits too.


If branding and company image is a big part of your work, having your logo placed on your bags improves visibility. This means you can get on with your day whilst simultaneously keeping the tools of your trade safe and presenting your brand. We can work with you to design a fully bespoke protective bag customised with your logo and preferred text printed on the exterior. 

If your employees look the part, they may even feel the part too. Taking extra measures to protect equipment used by your employees can boost morale and productivity amongst the workforce.


By keeping your equipment safe, clean and protected against any conditions, it can show your customers and clients that you care about your equipment, which is great for your brand impression and company ethos.

How to choose your protective bag

If you think you may benefit from a protective bag, there will be a few things to consider when choosing which one is best for you.

Target user

First of all, who will be using it? Think about how they will be transported and what conditions the case will be kept in and how you would like the equipment to be presented in the bag.


If brand awareness is incredibly important to you, you may want to consider whether you would like logos or customised text added to the bag, so others can recognise your branding.


What are your competition doing? Like with any business move, you’re going to want to take a look at what competitors are doing, so you can be one step ahead of the game. If your competitors have extra measures in place to protect your equipment, then you’re going to want to do the same for yours.
