    Comments about 1600 Case with Foam (Black):

    Use this case to keep my 5D Mark III & all of my L lenses safe. Took my time (taking apart the foam pieces) making sure that all of my equipment fits perfectly.... and it does! This case is very sturdy and substantial and I am sure it will do what it is intended for. I would recommend this to anyone without hesitation.

          Comments about 1600 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

          This is a box, like any box it holds items. If you ever used Pelican products before you know the box will be made out of plastic and it will shut tight (apparently water tight). This box will be useful if you need boxes to hold your items. I'm inclined to give the product 5 stars for craftsmanship but then it would also imply that i'm in awe of the "invention." And after all it's just a box, so 4 stars.

          I videotape depositions and go to different locations on a daily bases. My equipment cost thousands of dollars and this case protects everything. I originally bought a cheap inferior case that lasted only a year. I should have bought a Pelican case to start with. A great buy for the money. I would recommend Pelican cases to anyone who has fragile and expensive gear.

              All the gear I can fit in this sucker amounts to over $3000, so spending [$]to for the peace of mind knowing that it is all %100 protected is worth it enough. Pelican has an incredible reputation and great customer service. I've been looking for something to organize my gear with and this indestructible waterproof, airtight, mini bomb shelter, did the trick. The only little tiny thing that's a bit annoying is the weight, it does weigh a bit much when its full but honestly I can deal with that for the amount of protection it gives.

              Comments about 1600 Case with Foam (Black):

              After owning this case for nearly three years, I have to say the quality of the foam is phenomenal. It has never broken down to many pieces of foam dust, though I've seen a few specs here and there from rough handling.

              At last, I decided to upgrade to the dividers interior with all the changing gear I'm getting. The foam doesn't let me change with easy and with the dividers, I can store so much more equipment. Nothing against the foam though. It is the BEST protection. If you have something in there you know will most likely never change (i.e. glass, lenses), get the foam. But I store lots of other camera gear and accessories I'm changing every few years if not every year so the dividers made more sense to me.

              All in all, the foam is excellent. Should last a lifetime. I'm still using the case though. A few scratches on the surface but still as strong and water tight as the day I got it.

                Simply awesome! Two cameras, NX5, handicam, three chargers, light, batteries and other acc. all fit. I liked that this had two sections of cubed foam instead of just one. Built like a tank.

                      Do you really need a waterproof, indestructo Pelican case? Yes, of course you do. I have a lot invested in my camera gear and a low paying job, so the piece of mind knowing my gear is as well protected as it's going to get is well worth it. Quality, performance, etc. is absolutely top notch. Plus it looks cool.

                      I use my pellican to transport my steady-cam, camera, lenses, hard drives and laptop all in one case. It helps me keep things organized and secure. Sure its a bit pricy but when it drops in the river or bounces off a rock, you can be sure that your equipment is safe.

                          Hey all I work in a rental company on Durban Sourh Aftican I flew to America for work and decided to buy Nikon lens . I was. Concerned about transporting them all together all the way back to South African with out then being damage. I remember the other pelican case I bought before and how great they protected my gear. I bought the Pelican case 1600 from B&H in New York along with 5 Nikon lens I put my Nikon lens in the Pelican case . When I departed USA I was a little nervous puting the case with my lens though bagged clam as I'm sure we all know how ruff they are with the gear . After 20h flighing and 4 different plans I got back to Durban opened up the case to find them perfectly fine no damaged at all what a great product I will definitely suggest Pelican Case to all my clients and friends
                          Thanks Pelican for making such a great product

                          I was able to fit my Canon C100 all the accessories and still had room for my redrockmicro cage and follow focus! Great quality case also! Worth the money!

                            I use this case to carry a 4x5.65" mattebox, studio follow focus, and filter set. It's a great size to organize and protect my gear, and the pick-and-pluck foam works very well. I was worried that the pieces of foam around my gear would come apart, but so far they are quite sturdy. Very happy with the purchase.

                                An elegant, rugged, beautifully simple design and build on all Pelican products. I don't know where I would be without them!

                                If I have one complaint, and it's very minor, I wish that the Pick and Pluck foam insets were available as a single layer instead of two. I feel like it might break down a little faster.

                                If what you're carrying needs to arrive intact and functional, then eventually you'll realize that you should have bought a Pelican case. Tough beyond what you'd expect, secure and roomy, it's the case you buy once and never worry about again. I'm using mine to haul special electronic equipment around, and I don't worry about checking it in luggage or tossing it into the back of a pickup truck in the rain. The stuff inside stays dry and safe.
                                The only problem I have is that I forgot to buy a replacement foam insert for it when I changed the contents over to a new device - it was not that big a deal to re-order foam for it. It's also not lightweight - you'll build some arm muscles hauling this around, but I don't mind that too much.
