        Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Solid Blue with Black Lining):

        Use it for keeping valuables (passport, credit cards, key fobs) when I travel. It's pretty much as solid a case as you are gonna find.

        This, however, is my second version of the case because the closing clasp broke on the first one. It may have been a bad batch. It may have been a freak flaw. But where the clasp 'clicks' into place, the plastic broke on not one, but both sides leaving it unable to remain locked closed. I obviously like these cases enough to buy another one but hoped it would have lasted longer than 3 years of light/average use.

            With the addition of pick-and-pluck foam, I use this case to protect my Cyber Commander, Cyber Sync Trigger Transmitter, and CSXCV Tranceivers. I wouldn't trust them to anything less as my livelihood depends on this stuff.

            Why take a chance?

              I use the Micro Case to protect my Tascam Digital Audio Recorder. It's just larger than the Tascam which allows me to put some foam in and keep it all safe and snug.

              The little hook, well for what I'm carrying I'll never use it, I don't want to trust it because the tascam isn't light and I don't want it falling. Otherwise I guess its fine. The case is well built, sturdy latches, and built to take a little punishment. Exactly as it should.

              This is my third box that I've purchase and there more on my shopping cart.
              It is a beautiful box and constructed to be beaten. It's a combination that you know it is a Pelican product.

                          I use one of this size to store my flash triggers set. I have one to also store my gopro camera and batteries. Though the various mounts and grip go in a separate box of their own. I would like to see the company provide padded dividers so I can make smaller compartments even in the cases these small.

                              I got this to protect my Droid Ultra when backpacking. Much cheaper than an otterbox, and actually waterproof. I can fit my phone and large external battery pack for a week-long trip (with a little space left over) and not worry about wet, crushed, cracked screen, or anything else, even when jammed down in my pack. Also, it's future proof because it will fit my next phone too.

                              Only downside is that the hole for the included "carabiner" is too small to use a more robust hook, but that is very minor.

                                        Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Clear Black with Colored Lining):

                                        I am very pleased with the Pelican 1040 Micro Case. I plan to mount it semi-permanently on my motorcycle's handlebars to house my radar detector, smart phone, or other such devices for which I want good shock and weather protection and the ability to see the display. I am impressed with its rugged design, the ability to seal it, the transparent case, and the shock-absorbing liner. I was also impressed with the price at B&H. While I have not yet installed it, I expect no problems based on my prior highly positive experiences with Pelican waterproof cases.

                                        This case is also very tough, it has a strong latch that doesn't feel like it will break the tenth time you open it. I bought this case to protect my digital camera from crushing, dropping and oil saturation. I also purchased the foam block that goes inside to keep the camera from moving around inside. It has a padded interior but wont keep things from moving around. It has a rubber seal that appears to provide an excellent seal from dirt and moisture.

                                                It is well made, strong and elegant. All in one little case that exceeded my expectations. Its easy to spot Pelican's standard. I really recomend this item and you can give multiple uses, you'll be glad you own one.

                                                This is the perfect size case for two lighting strike triggers, its batteries and camera cables. Although a little large for the camera bag, when I use them I take them out of the case and use a soft pouch.

                                                I transport a portable USB hard drive using this case. I've done so for over 10 years now. I bought a second box so that I can transport two drives at the same time. ALthough it's a beat bulky you can't bit the level of protection (shock, water, dust, etc.)
                                                Data is my most important asset.
