      Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Yellow):

      I love these cases. They are sturdy and I can mold them to my gear. If you never had one, get one. Everything fits snug and I dont have to worry about my cameras or lenses getting damaged in transport.The only hang up I have is that I like to reorganize things or I get new gear and then want to change up how everything fits. So at that point I have to order new foam. But I guess those are the quality problems associated with buying new gear.

              I'm using this for all of my photo/action cam equipment. The pick 'n pull foam is great, and it's easy to custom fit these cases to your needs. You can also tell that your items will be safe - the case is durable and well-constructed.

                Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Yellow):

                I purchased the 1500 case to carry delicate optical and photographic instruments, and the ruggedness of the case is very reassuring with the delicate instruments in side. While extremely rugged, the weight is not excessive due to the moderate size of the case. I like it that it is available in non common colors such as yellow. It makes it easier to locate the case in the presence of standard color (usually black) cases in situations like claiming the bag at an airport baggage turnstile. I would suggest adding other colors like blue and red.

                  The quality of this case is outstanding. This case is perfect for flying with. The airlines can beat the hell out of it and your stuff comes out the other side without so much as a scratch. And the $[*] price tag is the best I could find. They shipped this to me in just two days with the regular shipping. You just can't beat this deal.

                    I used the case to protect a mobile projector. I was able to fit the projector, remote control and cables into it. For the Pick n' Pluck foam, start out with a small area first. You can always rip more of it out later.

                                The product is as advertised...high quality. But the real reason for purchasing at B&H is the speedy shipping and handling along with the competitive pricing. It's the only place to start shopping for photography gear of all kinds. Thank You....jp

                                  I'm a freelance traveling photographer and this is the best case I've ever used. It's durability is phenomenal! I don't have to worry about anything getting broken in transit. I can securely lock it up when I need to check it on planes. It has enough space for both my cameras, external flash and three main lenses. Definitely a great buy in my opinion.

                                    There should be a Pelican case for everything you need to store safely or travel with.
