        Spacey, solid construction, not as expensive as the brand with the bird. The foam is softer than the one in the bird cases, but more than suitable for my use (microphone case).

          Nicely built and study. Worked really well for our panasonic projector and far superior to the manufacturer's cheap and overpriced nylon option that didn't really even fit right.

            Not as sturdy as an ATA case, but good for the price. Using it to transport my Optoma HD25-LV projector. Enough room to store remote, projector and power cord, with a little room to spare.

              Case was much more than I expected. very durable with customizable foam to match the size of the equipment. heavy duty closing buckles and handle. Very good case for the money.

                Comments about Porta Brace PB-2500F Hard Case with Foam Interior (Blue):

                I bought this case as a cheaper alternative to a pelican case. I think next time I'll buy a pelican....While the case is probably durable enough for my purposes it's definitely flimsier than a pelican. The foam dividers are equally flimsier and of poorer quality than the pelican dividers. All of that being said its good enough for my purposes, but if you want a more durable and sturdier case stick with pelican.

                  I've used this case for only a few weeks now...It was easy to customize, easy to open, and seems durable enough. I do have to say I'm not sure how well it will hold up to something like a pelican case but for my purposes it is plenty durable enough. Unless these cases are getting thrown around a lot they should last for a good amount of time.

                        Very happy by my purchase, very sturdy, looks good and is accepted easily as carry one on flights in Europe and the USA.

                        2 "cons"
                        - No shoulder straps
                        - The foam is not attached to the bottom of the case and becomes very mobile, once cut.

                        1 warning:
                        Just big enough for the parrot drone (without the outdoor hull) with the tips of the blades touching the resine side of the case (not a problem)
                        => becareful when you cut the foam to not do any mistake!

                          We are ordering at least 8 more for other gear.
                          Great for shipping on vans or trucks.

                              Fits the camera (Sony NEX-VG10, accesories, 8-200mm kit lens, 16mm Pancake, Sony 50mm +A-Mount adapter. Nice case for this cam or other cams this size.

                                  I purchased this to store a Panasonic DVC-30 and accessories in. I've got the camera, wide-angle lens, a couple batteries, charger and various cables with room to spare.

                                  I like the construction of the case itself better than some cases I've used. The exterior feels quite rigid and the latches are great. It feels like it will stand up to lots of abuse.

                                  Not so good is the foam; not only does it feel a little weak compared to other pick-and-pluck types I've used, but it isn't layered. I'm used to have two to three layers of the foam to pluck, creating a more custom fit. These foam blocks go straight through, meaning you have to pluck them out, cut the ones you want shorter, and replace them. A bit of a headache if you're trying to do fine outlines.

                                  Though inconvenient, this isn't enough for even the one star I pulled off, if I could I'd rate it 4.5 stars.

                                    Comments about Porta Brace PB-2500F Hard Case with Foam Interior (Blue):

                                    This is a fairly study case. The plastic is a little thin but still protective, I imagine thats where it saves on weight. I would worry less about that when ultimately it's going to be weighed down by much of your equipment... I keep two dslr bodies and about 7 lens in it. It will fit a sigma 150-500mm (which is a fairly large lens).
                                    Definitely watch how you remove the the foam as if you only leave one cell they will eventually break apart. I changed my mind mid plucking and resulted in a few lens holes with just one cell layer surrounding a few sides. It's still adequate to protect them, but the thin wall wont hold the shape and stretch with the lens in.

                                    On another note, if you never had pluck foam case before (like me) its not cubed to the bottom, it's got a solid bottom and than you pull strips out that go completely through to that layer. (IE. no plucking the height) does include hole for locks.

                                    Great case, nice price, and and I like colors. The only thing that i could see being included is clip spots for a strap or tieing it down but i wouldn't see using it that way often.

                                      This carrying case has been perfect for my GL2 and VX2000 (two cases). Compact but enough room for two on camera microphones and two Sennheiser wireless systems as well as a LED camera light. My main business is videography of weddings and this case gives me confidence that my cameras will be protected from the constant moving about.
