    I was looking to upgrade from a rolling backpack, and got some great advice: don't go for a huge case that can hold everything; instead, get a couple, each of which an assistant can handle, will fit in a car trunk, and which the airlines will take as checked luggage.

    This case is the happy medium for me between upsizing and manageability for location shoots -- deep enough to hold most of my gear up on end, and with fabric padded dividers that won't crumble into my gear like foam might.

    The interior of the case is organized into three strips of padded pockets along the long edge of the case. The ones up front are doubles, and can handle 15-20 small lenses and accessories. I can stack my smallest lenses on top of each other in drawstring bags. The middle row can handle your long lenses. I have a 70-200 2.8 in one of these cases, and a large Manfrotto clamp set in my other case. If I loaded my 200-400 f/4, it would take up the entire middle row and squeeze the adjoining rows along the hood. The back row holds my pro bodies up on end (swaddled those velcro-type camera "diapers"), and my SB-800 flash and a Quantum turbo battery up on end with room for some reflector cover cloths and other junk.

    All of the dividers are adjustable and removable, but the ones along the back row have a unique elastic expanding design that lets you put them at obtuse angles (instead of situating them parallel to the sides of the case to divide the row up into rectangular-shaped cavities, you can divide it up into trapezoidal spaces for when you need to drop something in at an angle) while still maintaining a continuous padded barrier from the next compartment.

    Overall the case is of typical Pelican quality -- premium quality, and this model is particularly ingenious in construction. The roller back is a separate flat plastic back that conceals a sliding handle (made from a solid piece of molded plastic, instead of a flimsy pair of metal telescoping rods with a handle as in luggage), and rollerblade-size wheels (except a bit wider). The entire handle/wheel assembly is attached with 12 bolts to the back of the case, so it's durable enough I think to handle being the new bottom of the case.

    The top secures with four flip-down latches, and can be secured with two locks, the hasps of which feed through two metal-reinforced holes on each corner of the front of the lid. Although you could go with the Peli-locks, I found that standard padlocks and key locks from the hardware store to universally fit the case, and are far more substantial for times when you might have someone other than a TSA agent trying to "inspect" your gear.

    I added a lid organizer, which attaches with six automobile-type pan-head screws, giving me another dozen or so flatter pockets, very useful for holding cables, memory cards, manuals, lens paper, a hat, and even a 5-in-1 reflector.

    All told, with the cases loaded, I still am well under the 70 pound limit most airlines require to check the cases at any price, with 20 pounds of case and 50 pounds of gear. I can't easily carry more than that anyway or expect a young assistant to. And with frequent flier status, I won't be paying extra for either of these anyway -- you get 70 pounds on most with elite status. It will not fit as a carry on by any stretch of the imagination. Alas, it also lacks a hole in the side to feed through your iPod headphone cable, which seems to be a requirement for most other carriers. ;-)

    This case is great but the dividers are NOT the ones described or pictured. There are 16 panels NOT 27. Also, they are not as well padded on the bottom as my other pelican dividers. Plus, they are black and not tan as pictured. This makes it more difficult to quickly see the gear you need to grab. It really seems like Pelican didn't make these.

    Case is great though.

    This is a great case. Very good quality. I can get all my C500 gear in it with no problem and the dividers really help with customization. I travel frequently by air with my gear and this is a perfect size for all my ancillary camera equipment. I take my camera and lenses with me on the plane.

      Comments about 1614 Waterproof 1610 Case with Dividers (Black):

      This case is just... SO... AWESOME. When it came to the door, it was in a flimsy cardboard box, kind of falling apart. But that almost made pulling the actual case out so much more overwhelming. The case itself is so impressive, nothing rattles, the plastic is a tough composite, which flexes just enough to let you know it will never crack. The wheels don't jiggle, but are still very smooth, everything about the case spells rugged.

      Opening up the case the padding from the dividers were just everywhere. It comes with so many pads, I don't think there's a way I'd ever use them all. Here's where the case gets a star off from perfect. It doesn't seem like the interior padding was made for this case. It kind of turns up a little instead of sitting against the walls, because one of the sides is too long. Seems like a small thing, but it actually hinders the setting of all of the other walls in the interior. Does it affect performance? Maybe, maybe not!

      Anyway, the case is enormous, weighing in at 22lb, empty, there's practically no hope in getting this thing standard airline check-in compliant at 50lb. No matter, it's a great way to lug things around by car, and worse comes to worst, I can always pay the extra bit for overweight luggage.

      I chose the 1614 because I needed it to carry my portable studio. Here's a basic list of the things I always have in it:
      3 einstein e640, cables, 7"reflectors, 20º, 30º, 40º grids, vagabond mini, extension cords, power strips, and a 24" flat panel monitor for on-site proofing. On top of that, there is plenty of space to fit at least 2 more vagabond minis, or another einstein, and other accessories.

      This is a fantastic case, and I will definitely be getting a couple more down the road!

      Keep Your Production Mobile

      By GarrBeaz

      from Cambridge, MA

      Comments about 1614 Waterproof 1610 Case with Dividers (Black):

      I am a videographer who is currently running a small production shoot that involves a lot of travel. Getting the majority of our equipment to various cities throughout the US was proving to be a challenge and the Pelican 1614 Case with dividers was exactly what we needed. The rugged outer design kept everything we put inside completely safe despite being FedEx'd halfway across the country. An entire 3-unit LED lighting kit and audio gear fit inside with room to spare, but with dividing innards I can customize the setup to ensure everything is snug. Almost every piece separated into individual squares so you cabln make compartments within compartments. Overall a really excellent concept.

      Now onto the nit-picking. The few flaws that it does have are pretty easy to deal with but are worth mentioning. The outside of the case is classic Pelican tried and true but this rendition of the 1610 case frankly looks more or less just thrown together. The divided padding isnt the most supportive material option, sacrificed for its customizable design. Certain deep corners felt a bit bare and I avoided putting incredibly fragile equipment in those areas. Also the outer walls of the dividers dont actually fit flush, they have to bend and bow to fit inside the hard case, implying it was not originally designed for this use.

      Otherwise a Pelican case is still a Pelican case, rugged and will get whatever you need frompoint A to point B safely. With its pull handle and wheels, moving heavy equipment became a breeze and now we actually keep everything in there since it is more convenient than the original carry case everything went in.

        We use this case to carry lighting equipment on location. We currently have three bees, all accessories, syncs, cords, gels, barndoors and a 5in1 reflector in it. It's not too heavy for two woman to lift into the vehicle and it's easy to organize. They included plenty of the dividers.

            I bought this to store most of my photo gear and have in one place. Extremely well made product, a bit heavy but other than that no complaints. I store 2 camera bodies, 8 lenses, flash, meters, etc. plus all the extra stuff. The Velcro adjustable storage areas work great. A storage area for small items would have been nice, but I'm using a small zipper bag (from another source) for that purpose, and it works fine.

            These boxes are really tuff, waterproof and virtually indestructible. If you do break it, they will fix or replace it. They are a bit heavy, but it contains all the stuff you need, or add another one, as I did. Lots of sizes to choose from.

            One drawback on the 1514 - the retractable handle is too short! My heels catch the case when I'm zipping through the airport. I wrote Pelican about it, to no avail.

This Pelican case is perfect since they all fit into it and then into the back of my Outback so that the photography on my roadtrips is now even more versatile. I'm even able to be quicker in choosing what to use for each opportunity because it is all there safely and my beckoning call.

              This has all the quality and durability of Pelican products. What I like most about the case is that it is only slightly larger than my usualy carry-on buisness case, so I have been able to bring it on planes. However, it is technically slightly larger than official carry-on size at most airlines.
              It is also about 1/3 larger in storage capacity than the official pelican carry-on.

                Love the handle so it is easy to pull behind as I walk around.

                Comments about 1614 Waterproof 1610 Case with Dividers (Black):

                This case is tough and sturdy. There is a good bit of variety in how the partitions can be arranged. I have a 4x5 view camera, 5 lenses, 8 filmholders, 2 Hasselblads, and some odds and ends and still have open compartments. The way the sides of the soft insert come apart makes insertion of the dividers delightfully easy. The case rolls very easily and is highly maneuverable. The only criticism I have is that it has very little padding in the bottom, particularly over the wheel wells, and I recommend a layer of bubble wrap under your sensitive items. I would recommend this case and would buy it again.

                Everything fits! Nikon 70-200, 70-300 and new 80-400 all stand vertically in case with hoods reversed. Room for 2 bodies many lenses and accessories. Rugged and convenient. A real bargain.

                  Airline carry on size cases just weren't big enough to hold the gear I regularly use. This isn't a carry on case, I use it locally for shooting event video, audio gear, gear I use for TV commercials, etc. It holds DSLR, small/medium size video camera, batteries, wireless mics, lenses and a few other things. I used to use a carry on case and a couple small ones for what wouldn't fit. If that carry on size isn't quite big enough, check this out.

                      I am using this padded case to transport 3 F&V
                      1X1 LED panels. I put each panel in a Porta-Brace padded 15x20 pouch and used the dividers that came with the Pelican case to keep in place all of the accessories.
                      It all fits perfectly and the wheels and retractable handle makes getting around an airport easy.
