Press & Pull latches open with the push of a button, yet stay closed securely under impact or stress. The case has unbreakable molded-in hasps that allow the addition of standard size padlocks. It has hinges with integrated feet that hold fast under impact, and create a flat surface for upright stability.

    I love this case.

    A super robust and sturdy trolley that you can trust.

    The only down side is that it weighs a bit, but this doesn't obscure its overall performance at all.

    I bought two of these cases WITH DIVIDERS so they would be configurable. This model comes with 10 VERY SHORT dividers; a couple of long dividers and no medium-length dividers, at all. I tried to buy medium length from Pelican and they were very unhelpful. They said I'd have to buy another full set for over $100. Only two of their sets contain medium length dividers and those sets also have lots of the nearly useless short dividers.

    Also, I don't like the release feature for the locks; the locks seems flimsy and I'm concerned that they will break.

        Comments about iM2500 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

        Less expensive than comparable Pelican cases though now Storm is owned by Pelican so expect prices to rise.

        I bought the one with the cubed foam to hold super telephoto lens and it has worked very well for both the Nikon 2004-400mm and 500mm f4 lenses. Plenty of extra space for the polarizing filter case and flash bracket and other items.

        Very strong case and yet very easy to open with the Storm latch design. Rolls very well even over carpeted surfaces.

        The interior dimensions are perfect for large lenses without a lot of wasted space so the case will still fit in most airplanes' overhead bins.

        I like the drab green which is in sharp contrast to the Nikon standard cases that scream "steal me".

        There is nothing I would change with the Storm im2500 case design.

            I use this Pelican Storm iM2500 case to store my RED ONE digital cinema camera and a few accessories. It's a tight fit, but everything is well protected and nothing shifts around. I love the secure-yet-easy-to-use latches, and the bright yellow color stands out in a sea of black cases. The best part? It can be taken as a carry-on bag on an airplane. I wish it weighed a bit less, but the protection it offers is unbeatable, so I can't complain.

                This is my first Storm/Pelican case and I am very impressed with the quality, which is on a par with Pelican models. I like the latches better on the Storm than the ones on my Pelicans, they are much smoother and easier to use, yet seem to be very snug. Time will tell if they hold up as well as the Pelican ones since I must say my older Pelicans are approaching 10 years and though marked from travel they are on their fourth or fifth insert. I also prefer the two rod pull out handle system on the iM2500 over the full sheet of the Pelican 1510 model.

                    I use this case to store all of my HDSLR and audio gear and it works wonderfully. Watertight and extremely durable, my first week of owning this case it fell down a flight of stairs and survived a long trek through a rain storm and not a single piece of gear was damaged.

                    The size of the case was just right for me. I prefer to travel light with my gear. I can fit my SLR, 4 lenses, Marantz recorder, mics, and shoulder rig all in the case which cuts down on a lot of extra baggage.

                    I give it 4 out of 5 stars only for the slightly higher price but it was definitely a solid investment that will last me a long time.

                      I own 2 iM2500 Storm Cases and used them to move all my camera equipment from Texas to N. Carolina. They were moved in a trailer and no damage. I would take these things anywhere in any condition. I prefer the dividers not the foam. Love the latches. There is a lot to love here, perfect size with wheels. This is it.

                      For those that have purchased a Storm Case before, then you know what you are getting. A great roller handle and easy to use latches (in my opinion, when compared to a Pelican).

                      Perfect for carry on. Use it to roll around my DSLR, lenses, laptop in the lid and other various nick knacks. My big camera sits on top of the case and I traverse the airports with ease.

                      Weighs about 7 lbs. empty, if that is too much for you then lift some weights or buy something else. This case will outlive anything else you could buy. Weight to protection is the best I've seen. And since it has a lifetime guarantee I don't have to worry about buying anything else again.
                      Besides, you should mostly be rolling this case around anyway.

                      Fits easily under a seat if it has to leaving room for your legs still.

                      Padded inserts do just what you would expect.

                      Definitely pick this up if you need to move your gear around an airport or if you just need something smaller to protect a dsl setup and lenses.

                        Tough and durable; easily fits in overhead compartment. Extendable handle and wheels make it easy to rush between gates without worrying about hitting something and damaging lenses. Not long enough for tripod though (with out disassembly).

                          I have 2 other storm cases - Bought my first one 5 years ago - my camera in that case still looks new. I bought this one for my 7D DSLR Video kit. I know it will protect my expensive equipment for years to come. The dividers are a must for DSLR - as I can change the configuration to suet my lenses etc. Love it - great price too

                          Looks like a very durable and solid case. The bottom is not very cusioned, and there are a limited number of padded dividers included.
