U.S. Ski Team's ZARGES Case

This well-loved ZARGES case has been serving the U.S. Nordic Ski Team around the globe for nearly 20 years.


For over 80 years, ZARGES has offered superior aluminum products, relying on engineering expertise and high quality to provide stock and custom solutions. ZARGES delivers unparalleled protective aluminum cases. ZARGES aluminum cases lead the market with their durability and light weight, protecting their contents from the elements, while allowing for greater storage capacity than composite cases.

“We have been using ZARGES for close to 20 years. They are incredibly useful and reliable. We have traveled the world with these cases carrying everything from wax equipment to sewing machines. Never had a problem,” Dave Jarrett, Head Coach of the U.S. Nordic Combined team, remarked.

According to Tracy Johnson, ZARGES National Sales and Marketing Manager, “We are excited to partner with the USSA to provide our cases to all of their teams. Throughout the years, many experienced skiers and technicians have used our cases independently. We are proud to now be officially part of the team.”

The partnership marks a pivotal step for ZARGES as it continues to expand in North America.
