It is silent on the matter of container quality.

Technically (I would not suggest this!) a paper bag, folded over, with a lock punched through the top, would meet the law's requirements.

Personally, I add a d-ring (by sewing in a looped strap of balistic nylon) to my soft cases, and put a lock through the zipper and the d-ring... but my storage doesn't look nearly as nice as yours does. :-)
The law (PC 16850; requires:
16850. As used in this part, “locked container” means a secure container that is fully enclosed and locked by a padlock, keylock, combination lock, or similar locking device. The term “locked container” does not include the utility or glove compartment of a motor vehicle.
While the term "secure" isn't defined, general dictionary usage doesn't appear to support the "paper bag" theory.
