      The Pelican 1640 is a great quality case for anything important that you don't want damaged. B&H's great prices and fast shipping made this purchase a no-brainer. This was an excellent value for the money. Pelican's lifetime warranty is also an added value. I'm 100% happy with my purchase.

              The Pelican case is large enough to hold a pelican or two, but don't do that. That would be cruel. Instead use it for a data projector, video equipment or photo gear. Did I mention it rolls? So you don't have to worry (much) about the weight of the case or the pelicans.. I mean equipment of course, NOT pelicans. Seriously though, these cases are wonderful. Buy one. Or a dozen.

              I got this to replace the case that came with the kit for the DJI Phantom II quadcopter. With the prop guards on, the copter would not fit in the case that came with it (as part of a kit). I was able to transplant the custom foam that came with the first case into this case and the copter fits very nicely. The only thing is that for the purposes of storing the quadcopter, the dimension from the bottom up to the lid is unnessarily large, so the case is more bulky than is needed for that purpose. The case itself is excellent. I also got the lid organizer that you can purchase seperately and it is also well done.

                I bought this case to transport my Nikkor 400mm f 2.8 and 600mm f4 lenses when flying. It works perfectly and I love the fact that the TSA approved lock rings have steel inserts making the case even more secure. It's surprisingly easy to maneuver considering its size.

                Case is big, but you need the internal dimensions to fit the F450 with the props on. AS all Pelican cases are, this case is a beast. Has wheels for easy transport.

Checked it at the airport on a delta flight to Albuqurquie NM. Everything made it there and back safes and sound. If you get this, get two TSA Pelican locks for it also. They are great locks.

                        Well built case and well padded to protect a very expensive piece of equipment. The foam was easy to hollow out because of the 1 inch grid that was already cut for you. The retracting handle is easy to use.

                        A bit expensive but I think it has quite a few years in it.

                          I have bought many of these cases to protect sensitive items, this one housed a one of a kind custom electronic board and an aquarium, made it to destination and back no problems. Love the foam as you can customize for anything. Will keep buying these and can't beat the free or low cost shipping!

                            Purchased this case to transport and store a high-end Panasonic projector. The 'customizing foam' interior ensured a tight fit. The handle allows for easy transport and folds down when you aren't using it.

                            I would highly recommend this product for anyone that needs a sturdy, solid, and smart case. Worth every penny!

                            Thank God Pelican is around. The TSA (and some of our tech crew) seem to have some problems understanding that our equipment is valuable but, through all of their negligence, Pelican makes sure that our work can continue and our equipment arrives in one piece.

                            The only downside is that you run the thing into your ankles because the rolling handle is too short. Otherwise, perfect.

                            Currently using Pelican for 1 Mac Pro, 1 Monitor, 1 Keyboard, 1 Mouse, Triple Heads and Canopus Boxes

                              Comments about 1640 Transport Case with Foam (Olive Drab Green):

                              I'm a freelance film/video editor and I travel everywhere all the time. I bought this case to transport my 50lb Mac Pro edit system. The computer fits snugly and safely in the modified foam and the whole rig comes in under the max weight restrictions on most airlines.

                              Its just pretty much a tough, amazing case - no downsides.
