      Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Black):

      There are enough videos on youtube showing the durability of these cases. They shoot them with bird shot, burn them, throw them off roofs and cliffs, and sink them underwater. Spending $ on this case to protect almost $2K worth of gear was a no-brainer. I recently started self-filming my duck and deer hunts. This case is perfect for transporting my gear up the river. I do not have to worry about adverse weather conditions affecting my equipment. I am looking forward to buying a case for my rifle in the future. This case is built like a tank, airline approved, and made in the USA. Note there is space behind the padding on the lid of the case for a large assortment of USB and HDMI cables. For less than $ you can buy another foam insert. Now you have a custom fit case for your handguns or different equipment. The only con I have is the difficulty in operating the latches. I understand they must fit tight in order to retain its waterproof integrity. I have no trouble operating them but if you have real small hands and/or weak wrists you may find it difficult. If so I would recommend checking the latches on one in person before ordering. All in all I would defiantly recommend this case and I will be buying more in the future. Attached are pictures of my case loaded and the gear that goes in it. Even have enough room left over for a shotgun mic. Hope this review helps.... God Bless!!

        Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Black):

        I use this case to store my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, its accessories, and my audio recorder. It's the perfect size for a small kit. Very sturdy and the foam is dense. Good support for almost anything you throw in there.If there were a couple areas of improvement, I would say it would help to have two layers of pick-and-pluck foam for shallower items (there's only one thick layer) and latches that close easier. The latches take a good amount of pressure to close and they're very loud when they click. Similar cases from SKB are very quiet and easy to close.

          Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Yellow):

          I love these cases. They are sturdy and I can mold them to my gear. If you never had one, get one. Everything fits snug and I dont have to worry about my cameras or lenses getting damaged in transport.The only hang up I have is that I like to reorganize things or I get new gear and then want to change up how everything fits. So at that point I have to order new foam. But I guess those are the quality problems associated with buying new gear.

                    I purchased the 1500 case to carry delicate optical and photographic instruments, and the ruggedness of the case is very reassuring with the delicate instruments in side. While extremely rugged, the weight is not excessive due to the moderate size of the case. I like it that it is available in non common colors such as yellow. It makes it easier to locate the case in the presence of standard color (usually black) cases in situations like claiming the bag at an airport baggage turnstile. I would suggest adding other colors like blue and red.

                      The quality of this case is outstanding. This case is perfect for flying with. The airlines can beat the hell out of it and your stuff comes out the other side without so much as a scratch. And the $[*] price tag is the best I could find. They shipped this to me in just two days with the regular shipping. You just can't beat this deal.

                        I used the case to protect a mobile projector. I was able to fit the projector, remote control and cables into it. For the Pick n' Pluck foam, start out with a small area first. You can always rip more of it out later.

                        Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Black):

                        bought two of these cases to fill with Optoma Projectors. The projectors fit great after removing the pull-out foam. Anyone with professional gear that needs to travel must have some of these cases.

                          We use the Pelican 1500 to store our color analyzers. They allow us to ship or carry-on when flying to locations for service. The best protective case I have ever found!

                            Easily configured for protecting sensitive astro photo gear. The perfect case for my needs. Will likely buy another.
