    I've been happily using Pelican cases for years, the 1200 series cases are currently the smallest I own.

    In terms of quality Pelican is the standard by which others should be compared. They cost more than most, but they do what they're supposed to do better than anything else on the market.

    I probably own about a dozen Pelican cases ranging in size from the largest wheeled versions down to the 1200 series listed here. In many cases I no longer own the equipment for which the cases were originally purchased, but I've always found other uses for them and they've never failed to protect the contents within.

    very good case, thought it was a bit too mini could not fit the complete kit that it came with in it, other than that it does the job

        Comments about Pelican 1200 Case with Foam (Black):

        Since I've been into photography for quite a while and even though I don't use a Pelican for my photo gear, I've been aware of how good they are. I've just started a business, that is totally mobile and have leased a wireless credit card scanner. This is a very expensive and delicate piece of equipment and needs to be protected with the best case available. The Pelican 1200 is perfect. The right size and the pick and pluck foam of the second layer, really holds it well. I don't have to worry about dust, moisture, or falls. I highly recommend a Pelican for any gear or equipment that needs the best protection available. It's well worth the investment.

            Comments about Pelican 1200 Case with Foam (Black):

            It's hard to say something good about pelican, that hasn't already been said! My band-mates and I all chipped in to get two Shure KSM9's (high end live performance microphones), and being the proud owner of several pelican cases it truly "never" crossed my mind to protect these costly items with anything less. I have always thought that a company is only as good as its warranty, and with Pelicans unconditional lifetime 100% satisfaction guarantee……You can't go wrong!

                There's just no other way to transport your gear. Pelican makes cases for people who are serious about protecting their quality investments. I use mine for lenses and audio gear. The foam is easily tailored to any size or shape that fits within the case. Don't second guess it if you're planning to transport anything of value.

                  I use this case to keep my GoPro camera and all its accessories in it. There is plenty of space for the camera, case, mounts, cables, SD cards, etc. I never feel like my gear is unprotected. The foam inside can be ripped out so you can fit your gear in whatever what you want. Great case, I'm sure I will buy more in the future.

                      I purchased 2 of the Pelican 1200 cases: 1 for my wireless microphone equipment and 1 for my Marshall 7" video monitor and a "few" accessories. The quality and construction are exactly what you'd expect from Pelican - no complaints.

                      When considering which size Pelican case you need, make certain to account for a least on row of foam (approx. 1/3") around the entire interior of the case, these small cases fill up very quickly.

                          I read a alot of reviews, wanting to make sure I could get two "Sennheiser ew 100 ENG G3 Wireless Microphone System Combo" in the case. There was enough room for the hardware, , but not wires. I use a small micphone bag for the wires and lav mics. I can lay the bag on top of the foam and everything fits in the small case. The lacthes are a bit stiff to open, I sure with time they will be just fine.

                              Comments about Pelican 1200 Case with Foam (Black):

                              I bought four of these for class use with 8th graders. Two of the cases held a small Canon Vixia HF M500 videocam, plus wireless remote mic gear: a receiver, a transmitter, aerial, a mount for the receiver, and wires. It was very squeezey, but I managed to cut out openings for all that in this relatively small box. The box instructions suggest you use chalk outline before cutting. I tried this: bad idea. The chalk gave a broad outline 1/2 inch thick and was hard to remove later. I was halfway through cutting the first box before I realized the foam block had been pre-cut with little 1/2 inch cubes outlined and if I just cut the connectors between these pre-cuts, I got a much cleaner cut. The instructions did not tell me about this. The box is wonderfully sturdy and I don't doubt it is water tight, but the large plastic clasps are quite hard to open and close and I've broken a nail in the process. Still, I'd buy again and recommend to others.

                                I purchased this case to hold my Sony wireless receiver with lav and cube transmitters. It also fits the necessary cables and triple shoe V-bracket. I take this everywhere I go and love it.

                                    Best thing out there, pelican is such a great product. It's light weight, but packs such a punch on everything it does. Being air tight, water resistant, and shock proof whatever happens to be in the case once you close the lid you are worry-free knowning your product is in good hands inside. Plus with the pick and pull foam you know your item is snug inside fitting every angle it may need.

                                      This is a great case for protecting your valued items. I really liked how you can get it to the shape of your own items. Be sure to buy one a little bigger than you think you will need. Better to have a little extra room than not enough.

                                        I've been using pelican cases for years and simply put they are the most durable and dependable storage and transport options out there. The pluck out foam makes it easy to quickly customize it to fit whatever you are storing safely. I just purchased this box to house a sennheiser G3 112 set and a tascam dr-100 mkii. After determining the layout and plucking the foam I was up and running in 5 minutes. I have had the latch break on a case before (after 7 years of near daily use) and pelican sent a new one immediately thanks to the lifetime warranty.
