One of the best features to note about this case is the internal foam: it is triple-layered, and has custom grooves for one of the snuggest fits of the drone and accessories out there.

This carrying case has ABS plastic casing on the inside – which is always popular with those looking for serious protection – and a shockproof aluminum exterior on the outside.
It has a good amount of pre-cut space and will give you very reliable protection at a mid-tier price.
The one downside is that there’s only basic weatherproofing, and the case itself is not fully waterproof like some of the others on this list.
But if you’re more concerned about dropping your drone than you are about protection from the elements, this is a great mid-priced DJI Mavic case.

This Manfrotto D1 Backpack for Quadcopter is definitely a selection in the higher-quality range for the backpack category for the Mavic.

It is water-resistant, which is the best quality for a backpack that begins to be higher priced.
If you have a location change very quickly, you can open the front of this pack to carry the copter with propellers still attached, and you can also use this backpack to carry a laptop or tablet up to 17” in size. This is definitely the best option that we saw as far as backpacks out there: the manufacturer had the foresight to allow room for items other than the drone, and this item could most definitely withstand a higher than average beating.
