      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 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.

                Another Great Pelican Case!This one is used for wireless components.Have over a dozen Pelican cases of all different sizes. Some are approaching thirty years old. All of my Pelican cases can take the beating they get in the back of my old FJ40 bouncing around the desert. Gear is protected from the dust that we have here in the desert.No problems with these cases getting damaged other than a scratch here and there. I don't worry that I will have what happened to an old Haliburton case that I bought back in the 70's. It now has a bondo patch where it had a hole punched in it when an ammo can went airborne and landed on it while running down a rough forest road.

                  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.

                                It's a strong case with foam in it. I'm not sure what else you could be expecting.

                                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.
