      Comments about 1610 Case with Foam (Black):

      I use this product to transport expensive and reliable electronic equipment. So I needed a name I could trust. Pelican brand has been a trusted name for me for over 17 years. It is almost indestructible and thus creates a confidence that my gear will be in good shape, no matter where I travel.

      Comments about 1610 Case with Foam (Black):

      I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer. I have had my case for a little over a year. Unloading the other day and lost my grip on the case with my Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 50D, Canon 10d, 2 70-200L IS 2.8 lenses, Canon 24-105mm F4 L 2 Canon 580EX II's,Lightmeter, Batteries, cards etc. It fell down end over end down a flight of concrete steps, bouncing in the air like a gymnast. Slammed against a concrete wall with a loud crash.... I though I was done. I took the case in the house, it was a little scratched up. I opened it and everything looked like it did when I packed it. I turned everything on and attached lenses, flashes, etc. PERFECT!!! You got to get chu one of these!

        This is perfect for our new video camera. Just the right depth for Canon fx105, lightpanel, 7" monitor and accessories bag. Wheels and handle make it easy to move and like all the Pelican cases, its bulletproof.

          Comments about 1610 Case with Foam (Black):

          We have 18+ iPads we need to travel with for presentations and this case handles them beautifully. I can store two across and at least 10 deep for a total of 20 iPads. The custom foam inserts protect every iPad from scratches and breakage. Clients and prospects take serious notice when we prepare for presentations as it conveys a much more professional appearance than showing up with boxes and boxes of iPads. The case is more sturdy than I imagined and my staff really appreciates the built in handle and wheels. I would buy another in a heartbeat.

                I'm totally impressed with what Pelican has produced in this case. I've configured it to be a rolling iPad mini lab and charging solution. The pick n'pluck foam worked great for setting up the storage/charging pockets, and I had to make some minor modifications to the case for power and cooling. All-in-all extremely durable, functional, and affordable when considering other solutions.

                  I do a lot of weddings, and needed a single case to carry my primary gear. With this I can carry 4 Canon HG10's, 2 LED lights, my Sennheiser wireless systems including a hand held for guest comments. And I still have room for my Juiced Link mixer, headphones and a wide angle lens.

                  And of course, all this comes in a waterproof case with the Pelican reputation and quality. And best of all, at a great price from B&H Photo, the most trusted name in the business.

                    Comments about 1610 Case with Foam (Black):

                    How I used the 1610 case:
                    - Protects/stores/transports my 2 Profoto D1 Air heads, Profoto Air Remote, Paul C. Buff Mini Vagabond (with component separated from the battery), and the power cables for the strobe heads.
                    - Doubles as a seat, doubles as a makeshift table.

                    Things that are great about the 1610:
                    - Wheels: thank God the Flintstones came up with wheels because they still rock up to this day!
                    - Crushproof construction: if a Smart car hit this case with your belongings in it, I'm sure the Smart car would look stupid.
                    - Foam padding: easy to adjust. Do what I did and use tooth picks to mark your planned cutout areas!

                    Things that aren't so great about it:
                    - I barely just heard about this case. WHAT IS LIFE!?

                      There's a reason we own so many pelican cases. They are great for protecting and moving gear, the are less expensive and lighter than traditional ATA flight cases and they come with a awesome warranty.

                      We bought this one for some LED light panels with accesories and it works great.

                      If you ever plan air-travel with your photo gear and have cringed at the thought of those camera bodies and lenses being treated like, well.. like luggage, this is the answer. Three layers of "pick n' pluck" foam allow for a perfect custom fit. The case itself is virtually indestructible and the foam cushions everything inside from whatever the baggage handlers can dish out. I can now travel with my camera gear as checked luggage with peace of mind. - - HIGHLY recommended!

                      Comments about 1610 Case with Foam (Black):

                      I use this for transporting camera/film gear and RC Helicopter gear, and I tried many other cheaper products before finally getting a pelican case. I travel a lot, and I needed a case that would never fail, and could be pad locked. This case is bombproof, there isn't an airline/valet/taxi driver on earth that could damage it. The wheels and handle are priceless. This size (1610) is particularly great for travel because it got plenty of interior room, but it's not too long to squeeze into tough spaces

                        I'm using this to store very sensitive equipment. I love how easy it is to modify the foam. It took me all of 15 minutes to customize the way I needed it. I would totally recommend this one if you need the space...

                            You can't beat a Pelican case...Period. Solid protection for what you need protected. Let the baggage handlers beat it up. It can take it and come back for more. I travel 45 weeks a year and it travels with me everywhere around the world week after week year after year. I have used several different high end cases and none of them can match it. I pack about 60lbs of gear in mine without any problems. Being able to wheel it around with the built in extendable handle and solid wheels makes it easy. I have no regrets and when it comes time to get another case, it will be a Pelican.

                              As a compnay represenatative this case is well needed. It allows equipment to be mount in place. There is no movement, it prevent damaging and good for traveling.
