      The same high quality cases you would expect from Pelican only in a smaller size. It's about the size of a child's lunchbox but slightly thinner. I bought the version which comes with the "pluck out" foam and I have room for the recorder and its wall wart with plenty of foam protection to give me peace of mind that shipping or traveling with the 1170, I will never open it to find a broken piece of equipment!

      Excellent design for a miniature case good for a wrist watch. Disappointed - too small for my tiny concealable gun - go figure!

      It is also way too pricy for what it offers.

        Comments about Pelican 1170 Case with Foam (Black):

        I use this to store my amateur radio equipment. The tear-away foam made it easy for me to shape the interior to my unique needs. Without tools or instructions, I was able to effect the shapes of my radio, power cable, back-up battery pack, and antenna.

        And it's a pelican case, so the build quality is of course outstanding.

        I like the size for middle-ish sized handheld electronic devices; reminds me of a bit of a lunch box.

          Comments about Pelican 1170 Case with Foam (Black):

          I use this case to store RF packs and hand-held wireless microphones. The peel and pluck foam works great, but it is a tight fit for the larger shure brand RF packs we have. Great case for the price, use it for whatever needs to be kept safe.

          *Make sure to use the smaller measurements given as the inside measurement, unless you plan on taking the foam out of the top and bottom.

              I use this for air travel with my .44 mag, 4" revolver. Revolver just fits in the case. I didn't bother to pluck out foam as foam is fairly soft & compliant. Master 141T locks fit this case perfectly.

              Can't beat a Pelican case for protecting sensitive hardware. I had to ship a product programming fixture, half-way around the world - and have it arrive working. It wouldn't have made it there in one piece, any other way.

                  After receiving this case, I was very impressed with the quality. Also had no trouble finding a perfect sized lock for it at the local hardware store. This case does look even smaller in person than in photographs, but I didn't need anything huge, just pay attention to the measurements in the item description.

                    I'm a documentary filmmaker who does a lot of traveling and I appreciate the security of my footage above all else. My primary backup drive is a 4tb G-raid (one of the newer ones that is the same size as the 2tb older model). I was pleased to find that my drive fits perfectly in this case. Fantastic! The only words of wisdom I can offer is that you should perhaps put one or two of those moisture absorbing silica packets from beef jerky in there to absorb any extra humidity and make your drive smell like beef jerky.

                      My first dealing with B&H and everything was great. Lowest price I could find, shipping was really fast, and their site was easy to navigate.The 1170 Pelican case is to carry a pistol when traveling and what can I say---Pelican Cases can't be beat. Pelican 1170 with pluck foam is the right size for 4-5 inch barrel autos

                      This is a fantastic little case. I have two now. One for my dive computers, Air Analyzer, and other sensitive stuff and this new one for my Hero 3. My only wish was it would by just a little bigger. Comes with the pick and pluck (or whatever the name is) foam which is great so you can make whatever you want fit in the case snug and safe. Or you can remove the middle foam layer for bottom and top foam only which gives you much more room. Great case and great company. Made several purchases from them, never a problem or issue.

                        My wife insisted on buying me a Pelican case for my weapon. I really didn't think much about it until it arrived in the mail. I was pleasantly suprised at the quality in which it is constructed. I have shown it to several of my buddies. All have liked it and said that they would like to get one. I would definatly see myself obtaining another in the future. Solid, durable, watertight and great functionability.

                          This case will be used to carry/transport a firearm. It's the perfect size and weight, has provisions for locks for added safety and security.

                          I can't find any negatives at all with this case, it's absolutely perfect. Can't beat it for the money.

                            I bought this case for a valuable S&W 27-2 with a 3.5 inch barrel, and it is a perfect fit. Protection from damage and moisture, secure locking system, and as durable as they come. I would recommend Pelican products for any storage uses. They make a fine portable light as well, as well as handlights for divers. All pros, no cons. I also have my Canon SX130IS digital stored in a Pelican case as well.

                              Case was just large enough to fit my 9mm and 2 extra clips. The foam comes pre-serated, so customizing it is fairly easy. I made my openings as tight as possible and am glad I did becuase nothing moves at all when I shake it. After removing the foam to tightly fit the pistol, I also added back a layer on the bottom to make it even tighter when the case is closed. Gave it 4 stars because I've only had it for a few weeks and can't attest to the it's durability or being water-proof. Overall very satisfied though and I recommend it.

                                I use this to store my back up G-drive 1TB when transporting it to another location. I removed all the little cubes of foam so just a border of foam was left and it fit great.

                                Great product. My use will be to transport handguns. It's a perfect fit for small autos/revolvers. I like the two padlock tabs for security. Master Lock T140 locks are a perfect match for this case. I will buy Pelican cases from now on.
