    I lug a lot of camera around the world and Pelican cases have always held up to the beatings they take. I love the Pelican 1650 since I can load a good amount of gear inside and not worry at all. I originally bought the Pelican 1650 when the new model came out about 3 years ago and Pelican has really made some nice changes to the case, especially trimming some weight off of it. I currently own 3 Pelican cases and I love them all.

    This case is the perfect size for a suitcase or for larger camera equipment. Love the handle and the wheels. I have purchased many pelican cases for different applications and I have loved them all, but the lid and hinges on the 1650 do not feel quite as sturdy as all the rest.

    Wow!

    By Marcos

    from South Texas

    Comments about 1650NF Case without Foam (Black):

    To begin with, the case was delivered FOR FREE by B&H! Which is great in itself. But to the quality of the actual case, I couldn't have been more satisfied. I have had smaller, much older pelican cases and this new case is still up to the same standard of quality, if not better.

    I am using this case basically as work luggage. With the way it's built I don't have to worry about loading my bag in the back of a truck or leaving in the elements and then having to re-wash all my clothes due to leakage.

    The case is strong and is by no means light, but it is light enough for me to haul around anywhere with total confidence!

    Comments about 1650NF Case without Foam (Desert Tan):

    This is the largest pelican case that a single person can reasonably handle, and then only because of the excellent wheel and handle system. It easily fits small to mid sized tripods, light stands, and 1'x1' LED panels with batteries and chargers with room left for many assorted odds and ends. The latches are many and strong, and I use cable ties to make a convenient seal/backuo closure. I usually put some spares in the case and a note asking TSA to replace the ties if they cut them for inspection.
    These cases are a bit heavy, but the protection is worth it. I routinely ship gear ahead to locations (this is NOT a carry-on) via UPS or Fedex and these cases are the best protection money can buy.

          I own two of these cases and I am super happy with them. When you spend thousands of dollars on equipment a case is the best insurance you can buy. The only downside to these cases is that they are heavy, so they aren't perfect for everyone. But if you are looking for a case that can take a beating and protect your gear, look no further!

            I needed a big storage case for all of my clothes and some gear for long trips - and was especially looking for something secure and waterproof that i could just toss in the back of my truck. This one's perfect. HUGE. Locks tight and will secure anything I put in there.

                I have four tied to ladders on a ladder rack on top of the van. For being a gypsy, you know? This morning, I tried to use tie-downs on a 1610, but it wouldn't work because the 1650NF has handles, and the 1610 does not.
                Well, I forgot that the 1610 was still on the roof when I went for a drive, and lo and behold, it stayed on top of the roof for 3 miles down the road, but when I hung a left turn at 35mph, the 1610 flew off the roof onto the pavement. Nobody hurt, and neither was the 1610! But get a 1650, and this will never happen to you. Can't beat 'em with a stick! (The 1610 was still empty as nothing was in it yet.)

                  I now have three like this 1650NF to strap, cable and lock to the aluminum ladders attached to the ladder holders. The 1650NF is for our clothes, and back up stuff as the ole lady and I travel this great country on backroads and back alleys across America to see the family. Can't beat 'em with a stick, and I am not sure which, the family or the cases, I am talking about?

                    I have three of these now to lash to the ladders on the ladder racks of my Chevy van to hold my wardrobe On The Road. The other Pelican cases inside my van hold the camera equipment. If I get a fourth of these 1650's, I may just make a platform bed out of them on the roof and sleep up there under a tent tarp. With three of these topside, I have room inside the van to do my work, even lay down and take a snooze, count some ZZZ's, and dream.

                          Comments about 1650NF Case without Foam (Black):

                          I am a Police Officer and need to store emergency equipment in my personal car. This Pelican case fits perfectly into the rear of my SVU and protects my gear and allows me to securely lock it. Great construction and a must for anyone who really want to protect their valuables.
