    Great case

    By Pierre

    from Ithaca

    Comments about 1620NF Case without Foam (Black):

    This case performed great on its first air travel. The downside is that it holds enough tools to incur heavy excess bag fees. Great pricing, speedy delivery, and easy web ordering

      Comments about 1620NF Case without Foam (Desert Tan):

      I bought one of these several months ago for my son-in-law who was going to the mid-east on a 1 year military deployment. He was looking for a modern foot locker to keep his gear secure. The 1620 was the biggest case that would fit within the air courier size & weight limitations and had an adequate seal to keep the sand & dust out. We went with desert tan because the black cases get too hot in the sun.

      The case worked as advertised - despite lots of rough handling, the case made it through the deployment. After cleaning, it looked great and every moving part worked just as well as the day it left. A nice feature was the metal reinforced padlock opening and easy open latches (I often cursed the finger mangling first generation peli latches.) The newer wheelie pallet setup is a great step up from earlier Peli designs (in fact, our soldier used the case as a cart to haul all his other deployment bags around.) On the deployment, the case became a seat, table and multipurpose piece of furniture.

      The only downside on this case is the weight. Without foam it is 21+ lbs, and on the deployment soldiers were limited to a 50 pound maximum, so the case itself is nearly half of the max. For us, it was worth the weight to have a deployable strong box.

      I have since bought a second case for my own use to keep my photo gear safe. Since I usually drive my gear around, the weight is not an issue.

      Comments about 1620NF Case without Foam (Black):

      We use this product to store and carry our safety equipment in. It has enough room in it to carry most of our gear in. The only complaint I may have it is heavy and we have to meet certain weight limits for the airlines. So with the case alone weights half of our limit and once we fill it with our equipment we are over the limit so it is fustrating for us with the weight of the case.

      We use the product for storage and shipping of our Personal Proctective Equipment. We like this case because it is big enough to hold all of our equipment and protects our equipment from damage.
      The only thing we don't like about it is that it weighs too much and it cost us more to check it in the airlines.

      It does what its supposed to. Not over-sized for checked baggage. Pull-out handle could be more rigid, but I haven't had problems with it yet, even when loaded.

      Bought it together with a Porta Brace divider kit. A bit heavy - but I bought it to store all my kit. And to have everything availible in the trunk of the car when driving on trips whithout too many "loose items" hanging around. The Porta Brace divider kit it more adjustable than Pelicans, all small items is packed in bags, pillow to wrap around camera/lens and trow in the case. Laptop in lid.

      I'm actually an engineer using this to carry electrical equipment. I appreciate the strength, but it really cuts into airline weight limits. Overall, though, it seems extremely durable.
