    This Pelican case really doesn't need a review, it's the best case available on the planet and was my first purchase from B&H. When I received it, I could only open it about 5 inches and I was afraid to force it. I called B&H the following day, explained my concern, and they told me to FORCE IT, that if anything broke they'd replace it at no charge including shipping. I forced it and it opened right up, the rear hinges are heavily spring loaded. My photo buddies have told me never to buy anywhere other than B&H, now I know why! Thanks guys!

    Case is easy to use and to create custom case layout with the punchout foam. Only issue is the lid foam was cut too small so it doesn't fit the lid tightly. Have to place it back into the lide after every openning. Added some additional foam and tape behind the foam to keep it in place.

      The Pelican Case was a great buy. I say the same case on sale at a local camera store for $ plus tax. I got it from B&H for $ and saved $ with the tax. The ship was fast and perfusion.

        This pelican case is awesome. love this size, I own 3 of them. it's my first time using the easy pluck foam and I found it so easy to use and customize to my gear needs which were a bunch of NP battery's and 2 charges. The yellow color is a nice change from all the black cases i own.

          I own several Pelican cases of varying sizes. I bought this one to secure some motion control components and to keep them safe, secure, dry, and protected. Very satisfied with the build quality from Pelican. The foam inserts are precut and all you have to do is "pluck and pull" to the shape of your item.

                We are using the 1560 Case by Pelican to transport our projector that we use for auctions. The outside of the case is extremely durable. The foam padding inside is incredibly versatile, allowing us to tailor the padding to the size of the projector, in order to keep it as protected as possible. It looks like it would be hard to maneuver, yet the wheels make it very easy to transport.

                The pick-and-pluck foam. Bleh.

                I ended up picking up the padded insert separately. It fits lots more gear and is al lot more protective than you'd think.

                  Comments about 1560 Case with Foam (Black):

                  I recently had a shoot where I was going to be on a lake, so it was time to upgrade from my backpack to a water resistant, impact resistant, and virtually indestructable Pelican case. Naturally, I am very happy with my purchase.

                  The challenge with selecting the case was the size. I didn't need something that could hide a body, yet I have a decent amount of gear that goes with me, even on "light" days. The 1560 was a great option for me. I currently have mine configured to fit my BMCC, a Canon 70D, 5 lenses standing on their nose (including a telephoto zoom), a portable SSD reader, and slots for either SSD's or external drives. In a pinch, I can also squeeze in the odd USB cables or power adapters.

                  My only complaint is the size is just a little too big to fit in the overhead bin on a plane. I consider that to be more of a minor inconvenience, but if you fly often you may wish to go for a smaller size just to keep your stuff out of the belly of a steel bird.

                    This is my fifth Pelican case. There's a reason why they're the industry standard!
                    Super tough but not overly heavy.
                    Since the 1560 is pretty deep it has two layers of foam, which is nice. You can contour your shapes better.
                    Stiff enough to stand on or use as a stool.

                          I bought mine to house a quadcopter and accessories.. Cheaper than the comparable alternatives, and better. More durable, roomier, more options (i.e. colors and widely available/ affordable replacement parts and foam inserts)

                              I have a number of Pelican cases that house all my video gear. They are the bomb.
                              Stong and reliable. I love em.

                                I own numerous Pelican boxes and use them for video cameras, sound equipment, etc. This is my first 1560 case. I used it this past week, rolling it for three blocks, twice a day, for six days, on streets, broken sidewalks and cobblestone pavers. The wheels worked as needed so that I could carry other gear in my hand and over my shoulder. The best part of this box is the newer double throw latches. With the older style latches, you had better keep your knuckles away from the latch when opening. These newer latches are easier to open and close and are just as secure.

                                  I use the 1560 Pelican Case for my field monitors. It is a really great, solid case that protects my equipment and I love that it has wheels!

                                      This case is exactly what we wanted. We wanted something to store our simunitions in that would seperate it from our other Pelican cases. The orange color on this definately makes it stand out.

                                      I didn't purchase this case for the conventional camera body/lens storage but rather to keep my glass hookah and all it's accessories secured for travel. Everything fit perfectly and I'm happy with the quality and size of the case! Highly recommended!
