            Comments about Pelican 1770 Transport Case with Foam (Black):

            If you have read the specs you already know that this case is heavy and very large. This may make it unwieldy for some people to handle, even when empty, but once it is on the wheels it is easy to move about. The large interior size makes this case very versatile. Large items such as long benchrest rifles with expensive optics, surveying instruments and bulky camera equipment, as well as musical instruments, can be safely transported. I can fit an alto sax, a tenor sax, a laptop, some electrical equipment, and some literature in my case with ease. The saxes ride in their own cases within the 1770. The foam can be configured to hold a large number of smaller items such as cameras, iPads etc. It is easier to keep track of one large case at the airport than it is to do so for multiple dedicated cases. The latches are very sturdy, and the provision for locks seems to be robust. It would be nice if the case had a side handle, for that would make it easier to one person to carry the case over rough ground where the wheels would not function well or could be damaged. I am very pleased with my 1770.

                Exact same case sold by other retailers, but at a much better price. I bought two, to carry trade show displays. They arrived quickly, in perfect condition.

                B & H Photo has the best prices on Pelican cases! This is the 4th Pelican case I have bought from B & H.

                Shipping was very fast, and free!

                The actual case is a Christmas present, so I can't comment on that yet. Thanks for the excellent service!

                      We were able to fit our aluminum booth supports into the case using minimal effort in removing foam blocks for a perfect fit. We will keep our booth looking good for years despite shipping it all over the country! The latch design is great.

                        Bought the case for a custom rifle, everything I have come to expect from Pelican; rugged, well built, easily customizable foam. It's large and heavy but that's to be expected, wouldn't buy any other brand.

                            Comments about Pelican 1770 Transport Case with Foam (Black):

                            I remember it like it was yesterday.... It was a foggy Thursday morning. A package arrives at work. Warehouse manager tells me "its a big one, and quite heavy". I don't quite recall what I had ordered previously. I open box, all other employees gander in amazement. The sleek, black casing resonated with mysterious awesomeness. Employees begin to salivate, their prying hands reaching for my Pelican 1770, like a pack of rabid hyenas. I roll out my 1770, making brisk maneuvers around that morning's shipment. Thing is heavy. Take break, drop case on floor. Hyena's taken aback by sudden loud and monstrous sound from case hitting the concrete floor. Whole warehouse shudders in fear. Was that the hand of God reminding us that we are in fact flecks of space dust collecting on his galactic holy Shelby cobra? No, it was my Pelican 1770. I begin to fill the case with highly sensitive material, fragile goods that would otherwise put our company into bankruptcy if anything were to be damaged. I feel no fear, full confidence is with me. The Pelican 1770 gives me courage, tells me its okay to pack expensive things in it. Grabs my shoulder, tells me its gonna be alright. I shed a few tears.... Never have I felt so secure with anything that I have ever shipped out, until this day... Pelican 1770 puts a hand on my shoulder and reassures me "I'll never let you down friend, I know the feel". He begins to wipe away my tears, I retort by giving him the strongest bro hug any man/case relationship has ever experienced. Best case I have ever bought hands down. True story by the way.

                                    Extra rugged design that safely ships long items. Latches are sturdy and case has extra ribbibg in top cover to prevent crushing from central load.

                                    Plastic shipper pocket is a nice touch for labels or ID's

                                        I use this case for my slider, it easily holds the unit, stands and extra hardware but it's a little annoying to haul around because it only has handles on the short ends. This is only a problem when I'm trying to lift the case into or out of a vehicle.

                                          The handles are placed at the ends which is fine for two people to carry, but it needs another handle in the middle for a single person to carry. Would be five stars otherwise.

                                            Im in video and use this case to transport my steadicam arm, sled and my Kessler pocket Dolly. The steadicam backpack is useless because once you put a plate on top of the sled you can no longer use it. So this is a great way to protect that expensive stabilization gear.

                                            There is a handle on the top and bottom however none in the middle. While it has wheels this means if you have to carry this - stairs etc - you are completely screwed. You have to hug it like a bear and hope for the best. For that reason no 5 stars but none the less a great product for its size

                                                Typical tough Pelican construction, but no side handle. This makes it difficult for one person to load and unload from a vehicle.

                                                This case is a typical Pelican product -- well-built, water and dust proof, and able to withstand plenty of use. Most will probably use this case for rifles, but I use them for range poles (i.e., surveying). The foam is a little bit of a hassle to set up, but works well for customization. I have purchased many Pelican cases and have been completely happy with all of them.
