        Comments about 1520NF Case without Foam (Black):

        Technically, I will be modifying the case, so its solid structure will prove a bit more of a hindrance than a help. However, if you want a solid, weatherproof case, this is one nice case to get. Pressure relief valve is always nice. I dont have much detail as the case is working as advertised.

          I use these cases as motorcycle side cases. I chose them after seeing other bikes crash with them on and they protected the bike and left the crash with nothing more than a couple scratches. I've used other pelican cases to protect my scuba gear and am very impressed with how they hold up. I'm also very proud to buy a product made here in the USA.

                Perfect fit for two D300s, Nikon 70-200VR, 12-24, and a 28-70 f/2.8 (the chubby one). Also: a 35mm, 50mm, and the Nikon TC-17 teleconverter. Two filters slip in as well. The divider liner is just fine.

                Don't bother looking anywhere else for a strong, light case for camera gear, just get a Pelican. The locks are really nice for some added class. (They do not come with the case.)
