    A very useful piece of equipment to anyone wanting to protect valuable tools of any trade really.

    I was referred to B&H by a buddy into photography, but my hobby is RC Helis which brings me to-->

    My 1550 sees duty as the enclosure for a 1000watt multi-chem battery charger and the dual server power supplies that run it. At no time have I ever felt that the equipment inside was in danger of damage from water or impacts. Tbh, I used it to win a safe bet that I wouldn't toss the case, electronics included, into a pool. Of course I knew my equipment would be just fine.

    The foam, while not being used in this particular case, is really nice stuff and the pick-n-pluck process is fool proof. I ended up using a layer of it to enclose 600$ worth of long range RC aircraft transmitters. Really easy to outline the piece you want to cut out and you can literally just knock it loose and pull it with your fingers.

    Finally, the case itself just looks cool. I've gotten some weird looks carrying around with folks being rather curious as to what could possibly need to be carried in a mil-spec case :)

    FYI, we use these cases at NASA to protect many of our sensitive devices/tools. You can buy one knowing your stuff isn't going anywhere. :P

    Con wise, the only thing I can think of is that the case is bulky. However, for the protection that this case provides it's an acceptable loss. Honestly, any case that is going to protect to the level of one of these isn't going to be very compact. That said, the fiber reinforced plastic that these are made of is fairly light.

    I received my Pelican 1550 case from B&H Friday. That night I custom shaped the Pluck & Pick foam interior (solid foam is not offered) for my Nikon D4 camera and a couple of lenses. I took the camera and lens out of the case 4 times on Saturday and already the foam Pick and Pluck pieces are starting to come apart! I called Pelican and all they would tell me was that it wasn't a warranty issue and that I should contact B&H. I'm not sure what B&H could or would do at this point. Even if they replaced the foam, it would be the same worthless Pick and Pluck liner! I am now trying to locate a foam supplier who will sell me a solid sheet of 1.3 (or 1.7) charcoal polyurethane foam. I shouldn't have to do this with a brand new case! I had a Halliburton case for 35 years without any foam problems. The only thing worse than the foam is Pelican's refusal to acknowledge that it is a problem!

            The Pluck n Pick foam interior falls apart in no time. Nice case but the foam interior is worthless. Solid foam is not offered so if you have to have the case, buy it without foam and get some custom solid foam from a foam wholesale house.

                        I have wanted one of these for a while now. I this for a field box for RC multirotor equipment. With so much invested in radios and equipment I hated trusting it to just any case. The case was delivered in one day as promised. I have never used the pick n pluck foam before but it was easy and came out great. I like the fact that it cam in 2 layers so I could customize the layout and place smaller items below some of the larger.

                          The 1550 case fits 2 gripped bodies (5D mark III and 6D), 2 zoom lenses (24-105 and 70-200) plus a couple of 50mm, battery charger, and there still a bit of room to squeeze in a chocolate bar. Indestructible. I've had a few other Pelican casees over the years, and there is just nothing better to get your gear on set safely.

                            This is exactly what I was looking for and exactly what the description said. I am using this case as a secure gun gas for travel.....and it works perfectly. Large enough and tough enough to withstand "airline handling." Great protection for my contents. If you need quality and protection....this is your case! This is also the best price I found on the case ANYWHERE!!!

                            They make the best hardcases you can buy, ive owned several brands and they are similar to pelican cases, but the Pelican brand is clearly superior in comparison. better in all aspects.

                              We use these in the oil and gas industry to carry equipment to locations. They have served their purpose exceptionally well and hold up great to the harsh environments they get exposed to. The metal padlock tabs are one of my favorite features being we sometimes carry upwards of $ worth of equipment.

                                              We have about 30 of the Pelican cases in various sizes.
                                              Extremely strong and rugged, never need to worry about the gear inside if it is packed well.
                                              The punch out foam is not all that useful. It tends to break apart quickly if small sections are left as dividers. We typically punch it all out and protect each piece of gear separately.
                                              The cases are also heavy. Some of the cases we have weigh as much as the gear inside them, making shipping more expensive.

                                              Love the Pelican cases. I use them for camera and for guns. B&H is so easy to purchase from.

                                                  Rock solid case with pick and pluck foam made it simple for me to customize the case.

                                                    Bought this case for our Nikon Vibration Reduction spotting scope, window mount, and eyepiece. It is a little bulky, but provides excellent protection. The pick and pluck foam makes it easy to fit all of the equipment. Great padding and protection.

                                                      Solid build and finish. High quality foam holds my telescope eyepieces snug. Case snaps are solid and hold very well. Easy to use them even with winter gloves. I definitely would recommend this case.

                                                        While I do plan on buying more cases for my photo gear, this case I use to pack, store and transport very expensive FES and TENS medical equipment. This case exceedes the quality of the cases provided with the equipment.

                                                        For everyday use/storage as well as travel - it is convenient and most important, Absolutely rugged with great interior protection!
