    I use this case to store my demo equipment: document camera, two netbooks, wireless slate, router, and 30 handheld clicker devices with all of their power/USB cables. It is perfect and allows me peace of mind when I'm checking it in at the airport. The roller wheels make it easy to maneuver and get from baggage claim to the rental car.

    I bought two of these -- one for a lighting kit and one for a camcorder with matte box. The shell is tough -- very rigid and durable. The wheels in combination with the extendable handle make the case very easy to move.

    Despite many complains elsewhere on the web about Pelican's old latches, the new latches work very well and do not strain the hands at all. They are easy and straight forward.

    The Pick-N-Pluck form is easy enough to use, but I don't care for it. I found myself tearing beyond many corners and occasionally ripping a chunk of foam that hadn't been scored correctly in the manufacturing process. Also, if you have a piece of equipment that is triangular or rhomboid, there is no elegant way to Pick-N-Pluck a diagonal. In the end, I'd rather have had the option of cutting my own holes.

          Comments about 1620 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

          The foam allows the case to be adapted to a variety of applications. I remove all of the foam, insert a dense rubber pad, and use the case to transport an expensive bench rest front rest. I also use the configured foam to transport cameras, portable lighting equipment, and other electrical devices that support those items. Since this case is large enough to hold a wide variety of items, I plan to use it to transport anything I would rather not have damaged in transit, whether I am traveling by air, land , or sea. The hinges, latches, and handles are robust, and the latter are also comfortable. Note that it has handles on both ends, and one on the side. The wheels work well, as does the extendable handle. I ordered the desert tan hoping that it would be a little cooler in the sun than black. I will have to wait for warmer weather to see how that works out, but it looks very nice in that color. It is heavy, but it is not difficult to handle, and the weight is not an issue when using the wheels. I have not tested the waterproof claim.

          By Mike D

          from Wisconsin

          Comments about 1620 Case with Foam (Black):

          I have not traveled with this yet, I bought it to transport my pipe fitting tools. I was blown away by how sturdy this is. I can tell already, if you want something durable, buy a Pelican. I went with 1620, because the Pelican chart shows that for almost every airline this is the largest model that is classified normal checked luggage and not oversized.

Tough as nails with great features such as easy to use latches, holes for locks, and pluck-able foam for custom fit. Add the retractable tow handle and sturdy wheels and its an easy combination for any purpose.

                I actually bought this for transporting music gear (guitar pedals) on airplanes. The case meets ATA specs for flying and as long as you keep it under 50lbs it is not oversize or overweight. It is a little bulkier / heavier than I expected - with my gear packed inside the total weight came to 48.5 lbs!!! but it is a great case and the wheels and pull handle work great.

                  Our church meets in a gymnasium, and have to setup and tear down every Sunday. We cannot permanently mount our projector, and have gone through a couple over the years due to travel. We will be storing our church projector, laptop, and external monitor in this case and keeping it stored in a closet on site. Great way to go to increase protection, still maintain portability, and organize our equipment.

                    Easy to custom configure a multi layer caring case that is "Everything-proof". I had mine set up in 20 min...so easy to do. Use chalk to make outlines of your objects then just pluck out the foam squares you need to remove. It is that simple! LOVE this case!

                      Comments about 1620 Case with Foam (Black):

                      While not cheap (although B&H price was most reasonable), this unit is worth it, as all Pelican products I've used. Pluck and pull foam makes light work of fitting contents. And B&H's fast free shipping (in my case) made this a no-brainer.

                      Just as good as a pelican but the pelican I couldn't find in this exact size i needed. I am using it to hold my Arri L7C and if fits perfect and there is room for the barn doors and a 1/2 scrim.

                      The case protect my equipment fully. The down side is that the pluck out foam eventually gets messed up and falls apart.
