On the front of the packaging we can see Xigmatek is cutting costs here instead of in the product. The use of plain brown cardboard with black screening done over it has been an effective way of addressing costs. "Battle with the best" is the war cry under the name of the chassis and what looks like a rendering of King Leonidas from the movie "300".
This side shows that there is the Midgard II and Midgard II-W (window) versions of the case as well as options for included power supplies, of which my case doesn't have one included. The bulk of the panel is used to address the specifications chart below the checkboxes.
With the front and back being the same I can now address the feature list. There is the "leather coating", three ODD bays and one slim ODD bay, six internal drive bays and the removable section of them, eight places for fans, top I/O with USB 3.0, the docking station and the optional windowed version.
In eight languages Xigmatek takes the top three features and lists them on this side. For those who can't read anything other than English, covered features here are the 330mm of room accessed by removing a section of the drives, the docking station and the included native USB 3.0.
The inner packaging is pretty basic, but serves its purpose well. The use of a thin plastic liner to address small scratches is used in combination with the Styrofoam end caps that support and center the chassis for transit.
