      Pelican has always made a quality product and this one is no exception. Pelican is always a bit expensive but if you want to protect expensive equipment this is the way to go.

              Nice case and easy to modify. My suggestion would be to have a closed-foam insert (rather than open), thereby assisting with cleaner cuts and reducing foam dust in the cutting process. Overall, excellent product. I love Pelican cases!

                Comments about 1700 Long Case with Foam (Black):

                Bought this case for an AR-15 and some accessories. The size is perfect, inside & out. Fits under my bed. The case is well-made, seems very tough (I was standing on it @ 180 lbs and it didn't give too much). Has rollers so you can pull it instead of carrying it.
                I got the full foam insert that I had to cut out myself. If I had to do it again, I would spend the extra $$ for pre-cut foam. (A brand new exacto scalpel worked best... but, like I said, I'd spend $100 before I did that again.)

                    I only shoot strobes and needed something light and durable to carry my portable gear in. I already had a pelican for my body, lenses and strobes but needed something for the big stuff. Tried a couple other bags and boxes and. Wasn't happy. I took measurements of what I needed to carry and went to Pelican's website that has a fantastic fitment guide. Next, I started shoppefor price and B&H was the obvious choice.

                        Comments about 1700 Long Case with Foam (Black):

                        After buying my rifle and very expensive optics. I decided that I needed something a little better than the foam padded case I was using. So after eye-balling this case for awhile I decided to buy one. Very well made case...three layers of foam(1 on lid and 2 on bottom), nice latches and a soft o-ring seal around entire lid. There are two things Im not too crazy about and that's, the top handle does not fold down like the side handle and I would have liked one more latch on either side like the Storm case but from what I've read the 1700 seems to be stronger. Not a big deal as I will definitely buy another Pelican.

                            This case is built like a tank, yet still reasonably light. The wheels enhance portability and the customizable foam interior prevents a firearm (or other equipment) from shifting in transit.

                            I would not hesitate to purchase this case again. In fact, I am considering similar cases in different dimensions to protect other equipment.

                                    Looked at several cases intended for single tripods, but this one, which cost less and holds more than one, seems best. It also has wheels and, like other Pelican cases, is very sturdy. It easily holds a 1300 series Gitzo, smaller & shorter tripod and a monopod, all with heads still attached. There is still room for a few small parts if needed. My purpose is to check it through on flights, leave the case and any tripod not needed at the moment in the hotel room and just take the one I need with me. Loaded it weighs about 32lbs.

                                      I would love to write a raving review but I had to return it because it arrived with the chunk broken off the end courtesy of UPS. I have other 1750 cases and they have survived the airline baggage handling monkeys many times. If you have a firearm you like these are the cases to use for travel. I'd rather arrive with a damaged case then a broken firearm on a $5,000. hunt or major competion shoot. You can't beat Pelican "guaranteed for life", they stand behind their product.

                                      It's a pelican case, so if you're looking at it you already know it's the best, you're just deciding if you want to spend this much.

                                      2 quick notes:
                                      1) The handle on the long side is fixed, not hinged so it stays sticking out.
                                      2) The foam supplied is not pluck and pull, which makes is more difficult to trim and cut, but once you do, I actually think it's nicer than the pre-cut squares.

                                        This case is used to store and transport a M11 SMG with stock and suppressor. Perfect size for the weapon with all accessories attached. The case is build like a tank and is the best to protect valuable firearms. Designed to accept dual pad locks for added security. You cannot buy a better case.

                                            It's a pelican need I say more... Got it to add extra protection for an instrument while touring. Will also use it for a mobile recoding setup including a laptop area.

                                                Great case for my Steadicam arm. Only surprise was that the foam wasn't pluckable, was one solid piece, so I had to cut it, and it worked out well. Handle doesn't fold...
