2003 Winter Case Review Part 2: The ATX Avalanche

Jeantech Butterfly Series 2011

Newcomer Jeantech submitted two cases for this review. Jeantech may not be a familiar name to THG readers, since we have not previously had an opportunity to review their cases. Specializing primarily in steel case solutions, Jeantech has been manufacturing cases for some time and they are some of the most popular cases outside North America, particularly in Asia and Europe. While Jeantech products are available worldwide, in our eastern U.S. region they don't seem to be quite as popular as other brands found here. Let's look at what Jeantech has presented.
