    This lid organizer is really useful in my Pelican 1650. Before I added the organizer, many of my accessories were simply scattered among my other gear - which meant that I had to search for them (particularly the smaller items) when I needed them. Now I can easily find them in the organizer. It's constructed reasonably well and I'm confident that my gear will be protected. I've attached a photo to give you a better idea of how I use it. The items listed below are found in the corresponding pockets:

    1. Micro screwdriver kit, extra body/lens caps
    2. Nikon DR-5 and ML-3
    3. Lowepro CF card holder w/8 cards
    4. Nikon MC-36, instruction manual, MC-21 cable
    5. DK-5 eyepiece cover, terminal cover for D700(x2), terminal cover for MB-D10 (x2), CF card readers (x2)
    6. EN-EL3e batteries (x2)
    7. EN-EL3e batteries (x3)
    8. Nikon D700 manual
    9. Nikon SC-28 remote cord (x2), travel charger for EN-EL3e batteries
    10. Small pocketed clipboard/portfolio, tabbed folder with model releases and wedding contracts
    11. EMPTY (so far)
    12. Small note pad and pen
    13. Two pens, highlighter, and Lens Pen

    The zippers on this are tiny and the mesh fabric is cheap. The big pocket at the top makes the smaller pockets in front bow out and crush against the gear below. There is no way to load this up like the picture shown. Things will simply break when you close the case. Yuck, I hate it.

        Comments about Pelican 1659 Photo Lid Organizer:

        I bought this product with my pelican case 1650 to keep my things organize. The only issue is that in some of the pockets the zippers are too small for the pocket space. It comes with 6 screws so it can be attached to the lid of the pelican case. It also have 3 longitudinal lines of velcro tape in the back.

            This lid organizer is helpful for all your little doodads and what not. The 1650 case and these pockets allow me to have one big case to roll into weddings rather than 6 little ones. It is nice to have little cables / Go Pro accessories / cloths / whatever in these pockets and not just rolling around in a random cut-out-foam section. Pretty simple. Not much else to say!

                We used inch long screws and mounted this on top of the lid foam. Once loaded with stuff, we did some re-arranging so the now-bulging pockets didn't press against other stuff in the lower section. We'd like to the see the mesh be made of stouter material, but that's picking a nit.

                Comments about Pelican 1659 Photo Lid Organizer:

                This is by far one of the better investments to throw into your Pelican if you are a photographer that has a bunch of small tools and things that you would like to carry around but normally don't because of space requirements. The screws secure into the lid very quickly and give it a very solid feeling. The only gripe I would have is either stronger zippers or maybe a velcro option since the zippers feel fairly cheap.

                  Good to carry an assortment of little and spare things at hand.
                  Zippers are a little funky at the beginning but come around.

                    I have this type of divider set for my 1510 Pelican case which has the another lid organizer I didn't like. Same kind of construction for both. Zippers not so strong and the material doesn't seem like it will last for ever but does give me the ability to use the lid height for the 1650 case. Keeps little things from rolling around. It is useful but don't expect too much.

                      I feel the organizer is necessary, given that the Pelican does not have any smail-item pockets. The lid organizer helps, but the pockets are too small and the zippers will break in short order; way too flimsy. Given the bulletproof nature of any Pelican case, this accessory seems like an aftethought.

                            lots of different sizes of pockets. zippers seem tough. You need to remove the foam from the lid before installing it. They should have a thin layer of foam behind it to replace somke of the protection lost when the lid foam is removed to make room for the organizer

                              This is a great idea but be sure not to overload it. I'm still a little frustrated with it since you have to do a little extra work in closing the case with the lid foam. The lid foam wont stay in place with the lid organizer but if you don't overload the lid organizer you can still close the case with a little work.

                                This lid organizer is really useful in my Pelican 1650. Before I added the organizer, many of my accessories were simply scattered among my other gear - which meant that I had to search for them (particularly the smaller items) when I needed them. Now I can easily find them in the organizer. It's constructed reasonably well and I'm confident that my gear will be protected. I've attached a photo to give you a better idea of how I use it. The items listed below are found in the corresponding pockets:

                                1. Micro screwdriver kit, extra body/lens caps
                                2. Nikon DR-5 and ML-3
                                3. Lowepro CF card holder w/8 cards
                                4. Nikon MC-36, instruction manual, MC-21 cable
                                5. DK-5 eyepiece cover, terminal cover for D700(x2), terminal cover for MB-D10 (x2), CF card readers (x2)
                                6. EN-EL3e batteries (x2)
                                7. EN-EL3e batteries (x3)
                                8. Nikon D700 manual
                                9. Nikon SC-28 remote cord (x2), travel charger for EN-EL3e batteries
                                10. Small pocketed clipboard/portfolio, tabbed folder with model releases and wedding contracts
                                11. EMPTY (so far)
                                12. Small note pad and pen
                                13. Two pens, highlighter, and Lens Pen

                                  This product helped me organize my smaller misc photography items in the Pelican 1650 case. It's a must have if you purchased the 1650 case.

                                    This was such a necessary accessory for my 1650 case because I'm able to secure all my small items like lens filters, ac/dc adapters, pliers, HDMI cables, batteries, chargers, and flash memory cards in the various pockets.
