I had one of those Halliburton cases---indeed, the one that's included in the advertisement which you show.
I happily used it for a number of years, and eventually gave it away as a gift: to an associate who needed to travel with some artworks (drawings)---and needed a dependable case in which to transport them (he was grateful for getting it.)
I can testify that everything---Everything!---claimed in that advertisement is true.
