    A very useful piece of equipment to anyone wanting to protect valuable tools of any trade really.

    I was referred to B&H by a buddy into photography, but my hobby is RC Helis which brings me to-->

    My 1550 sees duty as the enclosure for a 1000watt multi-chem battery charger and the dual server power supplies that run it. At no time have I ever felt that the equipment inside was in danger of damage from water or impacts. Tbh, I used it to win a safe bet that I wouldn't toss the case, electronics included, into a pool. Of course I knew my equipment would be just fine.

    The foam, while not being used in this particular case, is really nice stuff and the pick-n-pluck process is fool proof. I ended up using a layer of it to enclose 600$ worth of long range RC aircraft transmitters. Really easy to outline the piece you want to cut out and you can literally just knock it loose and pull it with your fingers.

    Finally, the case itself just looks cool. I've gotten some weird looks carrying around with folks being rather curious as to what could possibly need to be carried in a mil-spec case :)

    FYI, we use these cases at NASA to protect many of our sensitive devices/tools. You can buy one knowing your stuff isn't going anywhere. :P

    Con wise, the only thing I can think of is that the case is bulky. However, for the protection that this case provides it's an acceptable loss. Honestly, any case that is going to protect to the level of one of these isn't going to be very compact. That said, the fiber reinforced plastic that these are made of is fairly light.

    It kept two Nikons dry for a week of white water rafting. We were drenched! But the foam inside is terrible, it crumbles at each section. I did not like that. I wish I was a solid block and I could cut out what I needed. The present foam system is poor.

          Bought this case for our Nikon Vibration Reduction spotting scope, window mount, and eyepiece. It is a little bulky, but provides excellent protection. The pick and pluck foam makes it easy to fit all of the equipment. Great padding and protection.

              While I do plan on buying more cases for my photo gear, this case I use to pack, store and transport very expensive FES and TENS medical equipment. This case exceedes the quality of the cases provided with the equipment.

              For everyday use/storage as well as travel - it is convenient and most important, Absolutely rugged with great interior protection!

                  I used the 1550 case to secure my quadcopter and camera gear for travel. The diced foam on the inside makes it very easy to customize for your gear. I even made double layered or "secret" spots on the second layer of diced foam. The yellow really pops and makes me feel less like an amateur and more like a professional. Super durable and waterproof! This case was $ less than a similar custom quadcopter case, but I made the 1550 fit way more things. Very happy with this purchase. Only downside is its weight. Pretty hefty, especially after all the gear is inside. Totally worth it for the durability and reassurance of protected gear.

                      There isn't much new about pelican cases but they are tough as nails and the latch design is easy to operate even with gloves on. My 1550 was for a motorcycle top case and is easy tougher than most of the aluminum cases I've seen.

                              This case works well with the Phantom (props off) with just a couple of minor problems.

                              First the foam in the lid falls out easily. This can be fixed with some double sided tape or velcro. However with the foam in the lid, it's a bit of a tight fit closing the lid.

                              It fits the Phantom itself with the props off, the remote, the props and a couple of spare batteries. I belive some FPV will also fit but I haven't added it yet so I don't know.

                              It's less expensive than some of the cases that were designed for use with the Phantom but still works well. I would recommend it.

                                  I use the case to hold photography equipment or bombskis.

                                  Keeps everything well protected and dry. Also if there were ever a leak in any of the ingredients used for Irish Car Bombs (Guinness beer, Jameson whiskey, Baileys) the leak would stay contained within the case.

                                      I have an audio video rental company in Los Angeles, I use Pelican cases for every piece of gear I own. They are simply the best.

                                        Working in the video production business you see a lot of Pelican cases. So it only made sense when I was going to purchase a case that I'd go with this brand. So far I haven't been disappointed. I travel with my gear from time to time and airlines can be rather rough on luggage. This case is built like a rock with the softness of a feather pillow on the inside. So whatever happens to the case on the outside doesn't effect the equipment inside. Great case, wouldn't think of purchasing anything else.

                                        Perfect fut and design. Tough without weighing a ton.

                                            I bought this to store my Allen & Heath Xone:42 mixer (standard 12" mixer size) after my dumb self dropped the thing out of its original cardboard box onto the sidewalk face first on the way to a gig. Am I overcompensating a bit? Maybe. Do I regret this purchase? No.

                                            First off, the mixer fits perfectly once you pull out the bottom thin foam layer. No rattling around, which is more than can be said for most road cases. It's also very lightweight, but absolutely built like a tank. I have no concerns about the safety of my mixer. Simply put, you can't go wrong with this thing, or with Pelican in general.
