        Comments about 1560NF Case without Foam (Black):

        This Pelican 1560NF is great to use as a mobile tool box for my Milwaukee M12 set. Protects my tools from getting wet and once I walk away from this Pelican I lock it from theft or unwanted people grabbing my tools without my permission. Well Worth it! This is my third Pelican Box I have bought on B&H for my tools.

          Comments about 1560NF Case without Foam (Black):

          I was looking for a case that would be able to fit all of my tools and still not go overweight on the airlines. This case was the perfect size for me. I got everything I needed for a four month trip to China and Russia and it only weighed in around 40 pounds.

              I added my own pick and pluck foam to the case for use with a Sony PMW-100 XDCAM. Camera fits perfectly with plenty of cushioning and room for accessories, extra batteries and filters.

              I cannot say anything negative about this Pelican case. It's the most durable case I could possibly ask for and it's warranted for the life of the case.

              Quality product

              Comments about 1560NF Case without Foam (Black):

              Pelican cases are top quality. The only gripes that I do have:
              The lid clasps, I fly with my case a lot and as it comes down the luggage shoot I cross my fingers and hope that the lid stays closed.

              also the flat plastic extension handle for the rollies feels a little 'wobely' with a fully loaded case.

              Even with those things being said. In my opinion there really is no other product that compares with a pelican case.

                  Comments about 1560NF Case without Foam (Black):

                  A recent trip to the Arctic for work precipitated the purchase of a new suitcase. I've long been a fan of Pelican cases for shipping/carrying scientific instruments, so I decided buy one for myself as a suitcase. With the lid organizer, it's an excellent suitcase. I packed it full and it tipped the scale at just over 20 kg...but, not enough to incur excess charges.

                  I list the weight and cost as cons, but they're modest and totally worth it for the peace of mind and sturdy construction.

                    I am a fashion photographer bringing my camera to unique and interesting places. I needed to upgrade seeing that I've purchased larger, heavier glass and needed room now for lighting equipment cables. It was an upgrade from the 1550. I needed wheels so I could bring my camera case around. This is the perfect new edition to my aresonal of photographic equipment. With the backing of pelican it pays for itself! Highly recommend b&h as well as pelican products. I did purchase the padded divider sets which I recommend to save a little unless the pick out foam works for you.

                    I travel every week with tools. Obviously you can't take tools as a carry on, so I need something strong and secure to handle the TSA pounding it is destined to receive. This case Rocks and for such a great price. I am seriously thinking of buying the LOC variation as my luggage!

                            I bought the 1560NF for my tools and audio equipment and it fits perfectly the purpose, the lid stays firmly open making easy to use it as a tool box.
                            It is simple and very strong with comfortable handles on two different sides if you don't want to use the wheels.
                            The only thing I did not like is the way the black handle (to use as a wheeled case) is locked while it is not in use, it works fine now but doesn't look as strong as the rest of the moveable parts.

                                I bought this as a combination set with a Portabrace interior designed to work with this case specifically. All I can say is that this is my second Pelican case and I would buy them again in a heartbeat. This thing is made like a tank, yet, not so heavy that it isn't manageable.

                                I am using this case with an AF100 and 3 lenses, 2 batteries, readers, chargers, etc.

                                      This is going to make the " Best Suitcase Ever " I was so impressed with the one I purchased for my Cameras I figured what a case for clothes and some small items that may get broken such as portable Ham Radio with clothes packed around it.
                                      Will let you know at later date how the Radio survived the trip.

                                        Purchased 3 cases for air travel--[...] The double click latches secured the contents beyond our expectations. Will definitely look at other pelican models as needs arise.

                                          Everything Pelican makes is amazing. I would put my newborn child in one and ship him across the country and I bet he would arrive smiling and without a scratch.

                                          So, do yourself a favor and buy some cases.

                                            I bought this for my HVX200 and chose it over the specialized HVX200 foam cutout cases others sell. I purchased the divider/sectioned insert and it really allows for packing a lot of accessories with the camcorder. I just returned from an overseas shoot and the case held up great. I would highly recommend it. And the orange color is great for picking it out in the baggage line at airports.
