    I use this to store all my camera gear whilst at home or travelling in the car (way too big for aircraft carry-on). The dividers are great and a slight pain at the same time. They are a much better idea then the pluck foam, which I would only go for it was for a specific purpose and to carry the same items each time. The dividers can't give you the same protection as the foam, but there is still plenty of protection with this case, much better than the alternatives. Just remember this is a BIG (and heavy) case especially when full.

    These dividers are not made nearly as well as they were in the past. I have many of these cases and there is no comparison to the past models

    Comments about 1604 Waterproof 1600 Case with Dividers (Yellow):

    This is a great size Pelican. Holds enough gear and is a good handling size. The deviders are much better than the pull and pluck.

    Outstanding Case

    By D'Luna

    Comments about 1604 Waterproof 1600 Case with Dividers (Black):

    Best case I've ever purchased. Super comfortable handle, fits my Presonus mixer, I don't have to be concerned if anything gets spiked over it because it's totally waterproof, totally worth the price. And they look amazing.

    Comments about 1604 Waterproof 1600 Case with Dividers (Yellow):

    I received this case today and found the 15 piece divider set is Black. The photograph shows a grey divider set. This is disappointing to a photographer who wants his equipment and accessories easy to find. The case is big and bright yellow. Pelican, if you are watching please make a yellow divider set for your cases.

          The Pelican 1604 is about the same price as a decent camera backpack, yet stores about 2x as much gear and is very, very sturdy. The divider kit which comes with it is pretty good and versatile, but could probably include a couple more dividers. It is about the size of an ordinary suitcase and not that heavy considering the protection it provides. This is a great case. I will likely use it to store my equipment, and use a bag for transportation.

            Comments about 1604 Waterproof 1600 Case with Dividers (Desert Tan):

            Exactly what I wanted; high level protection for my photo gear while it is being transported. Because there are many size options available, do take the time to carefully choose the right size for your needs. My choice was to accommodate all my equipment in one case, and the dividers supplied were sufficient to the task. As I anticipated, the case, combined with the full range of gear I carry in it, makes for a heavy load that I won't haul too far from my car; when desired, I can transfer a subset of equipment to a backpack or shoulder bag when I want more walking range.
            Very satisfied with this purchase.

                  We perform computer network installs and use these cases, both with dividers and foam, to carry equipment. Not only do they work well but our customers all recognize a Pelican and know we mean business. Only drawback sometimes is the weight but hey, we're computer geeks, we could use the exercise.

                      The 1600 is the perfect size to fit a full DSLR rig.
                      The divider set is a must-have in my opinion, as it gives you the ability to customize the layout of your gear and to maximize the available space inside the case. I can fit my camera body, lenses, three sets of rods/quick releases, handles, cage assembly, microphone, XLR adapter, LED kit, batteries, media cards, and all sorts of extra little gear, perfectly organized with room to spare.

                      Plus, when you add gear to your kit or decide to repurpose the case, you can always re-arrange the velcro dividers in minutes.

                          Comments about 1604 Waterproof 1600 Case with Dividers (Black):

                          I bought this case and the divider for my photo equipments. This case is able to contain my 3 bodies with grips and about 7 or 8 lenses. I also bought the lid organizer which I use to organize all the memory cards, filters, batteries.... The negative about this combo is that you can't use the cover foam. If your lens is short and the case is shake back and forth, the lens can move up and down against the lid organizer and whatever is in it. However, the case is of really good quality. I would give it a 5 star if the latches and the hinges were a little stronger.

                          I bought this case to safely store all of my DSLR cameras, lenses, shoe-mount flashes, and peripherals. It does exactly that. It is easy to organize, and has a very versatile divider system, It fits a ton of gear. I keep it loaded with everything, then when I go on a shoot I go through it and pick and choose what I need and transfer it to a smaller shoulder bag. When I go on a road trip I take the whole case and keep it on my back seat and have easy access to anything I need without fishing through multiple cases and bags. The latches have a double folding /latching system that makes it very easy to open and close. It is rugged beyond a tank. The velcro on the dividers is sticky enough, and I would have given it a five star rating if it was a little stickier.

                            I've had several cases from Pelican over the years and they are the standard. Protects the gear well enough to check on an airplane, use on a boat, and dunk in the water (extensively).

                            This case has the padded dividers which are better for regular use of multiple items. The problem with the pick and pluck foam is long term durability. They are easy to configure for a true custom fit and probably nothing protects sensitive items better from shock, but pulling items in and out will eventually cause the foam break apart. Large delicate items like monitors or computers are better for foam, but for cameras and lenses, I think the padded dividers are better.

                            This case stores all of my photography gear perfectly. I am able to fit 2 DSLRs with lens attached, 6 or 7 other lenses and have room for growth. The protection that this case offers in unmatched. I have nothing negative to say about it and will buy more in the future if I need additional space.
