          Comments about iM3100 Storm Case with Foam (Black):

          I've always bought Pelican Cases. This was my first Storm case. I like the wheels and the fact that there are side latches. But I'm not a fan of how the case seals. With standard Pelican Cases, it takes a little effort to latch them, which always gives me confidence that the o-ring seal is working properly. The Storm case closes almost too easily. I don't have the same confidence in the o-ring and that it is sealing well. I'm also more of a fan of the flat foam in the lid - the Storm comes with the convoluted foam pad, which I don't like as much.

              We use these cases for International travel for our World Championship competition Rifles. This is the safest case you can buy for
              all our valuable items. These cases are lacking
              nothing. Strongest, best latches, best foam, etc.
              We feel save when we pack our things in our im3100, what we want, is no worries about traveling and our luggage getting damaged.

              Comments about iM3100 Storm Case with Foam (Black):

              The im3100 meets the same standards as the rest of the storm cases with no exceptions. Just large enough to fit an AR style rifle with two extra upper receivers minus optics and 5 spare magazines. I will be buying two more in the near future.

                  The case is the best you can get. Period. I bought it for an FN SCAR and it fits perfectly with the stock folded. The problem is, for the money, they should include the foam that is precut so you can remove what you need instead of destroying the foam. For the money, this should be absolutely included.

                  This is my second iM3100 case from Pelican. I've gotten so much use out of the first case that I decided to buy another. Great for safely transporting your breakable items.

                  Great service and excellent prices from B & H, and free shipping to boot! Thanks B & H!

                      I'm using mine as a gun case. Wish it had Pick 'N Pluck foam instead of having to cut it. But my electric carving knife works great for that.

                          This case is the most useful for air travel as it falls short of oversize on all major airlines, but allows transport of a fair number of light stands and smaller tripods. The locking mechanisms are from the Storm design, having push buttons which are in my opinion easier to use than standard Pelican models.

                            Holds my items perfectly.
                            Seal is very well made.
                            Push Button latches work well.
                            Snap click sound when latching.
                            Solid and well built.
                            Rolling wheels are smooth.
                            Handles are really a great rubbery feel.
                            Overall......I am satisfied !!!

                              I originally purchased a pelican 1700 case and found it to be even better built and more durable than the storm case but found the latches to hard to open and lock. So I returned it and ordered the Pelican storm iM3100 which is about the same size and weight. The latches on the storm are much better. Easier to lock and open and secure just as good as the 1700. The case itself is made of a different material, although lifetime warrentied, the 1700 case seem more heavy duty, military grade, whereas the iM3100 is more consumer grade, which suites my needs perfectly.

                                This is a great product, strong and light.

                                I decided to go with pelican due to previous experience with their products. They never disappoint.

                                I am currently using it as a gun case to carry a tactical carbine including most accessories (e.g. Magazines sights, etc). A lot of space without making the whole package too bulky. In addition, the case is much stronger than similar products from other manufacturers ( e.g Plano 108420). In addition the water proffing is excellent given it has a thick gasket an a very sturdy design that will not allow the case to deform even under high stress. The only thing that would make this case better is the addition of built in locks

                                  Pretty much what I was expecting/looking for.
                                  Have not had it long enough for any real durability testing but seems to be built really well. One thing I would say is when you go to cut out the foam follow the included instructions. :) I followed some istructions that I got online which worked well enough, but not as well as Pelicans. (Read the instructions after I got everything cut out, silly me!)

                                    I have pelicans for all my scoped rifles, and just about anything else I care about. They are by far the best cases I have used, I have never had an issue with them.

                                      I spent some time looking for the perfect case for my FN Scar 16S rifle. The case is absolutely perfect and is built better than cases from other manufacturers. The fit and finish is superb.

                                      The recessed latches are nicely designed and will not accidentally become unlatched.

                                      I got free shipping from B&H which sealed the deal for me since I had it shipped to California.

                                      This case was purchased to protect an expensive firearm and I am very pleased with the iM3100. The latches are great and tightly shut the top. The plastic is very sturdy and the handles have a very nice soft rubber grip. The wheels are a nice extra. The only con is the price. It is expensive, but if your equipment is worth it this case will offer the protection it needs.
