    This is the perfect protective, carry on case! The case meets the regulations, <43", for all airlines at this time. I organized the case to hold 3 cameras with winders and 77mm (Zeiss) lenses attached, a 4th lens, 1 flash, battery chargers and lots of misc. stuff. The case is deep enough to leave the winders on the cameras. The case is wide enough to leave a 70x200 77mm lens on the camera. The dividers are thick and offer ample padding. When planning how to store things, think in layers(taking advantage of the depth of the case) and use the extra padding to create these layers. After spending days searching for the right case this is the only case that met all my needs. (depth to leave winders attached, width to leave lenses attached and 43" to carry all the stuff I need when I fly so I don't have to check my cameras.
    The color Tan is important to reflect the sun in hot climates and the case is water resistant to keep the moisture levels as low as possible.

    Good: sturdy case, well made, offers good protection

    Bad: dividers designed for old, smaller film cameras and lenses. The "L" dividers that are supposed to fit around a SLR only accommodate a camera about an inch thick and cannot be adjusted or modified to allow room for the finger grip on every DSLR I know about.
    Also the instructions warn to not leave the case in an enclosed space like a trunk in warm weather because the case could melt and damage my camera. I bought this case to protect my camera in the trunk.

    Order this case with the foam inserts if you live in a cold climate.

    This is my third Pelican case, these are built like tanks. It's sturdy, reliable and great for protecting your expensive camera gear. Holds two SONY a99 cameras, 3 prime Zeiss lenses, a 70-400 G lens and accessories.

        Comments about 1524 Waterproof 1520 Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

        I run a small video/film production company and I own several pelican cases that I use to safely transport equipment to and from jobs.

        I love the feeling of security and peace of mind I have in using these cases. I don't buy the cheaper one personally... I only use pelican. I don't go underwater with these cases, but I do know my gear will be perfectly protected in inclement weather, rain, snow, etc... I don't have to worry.

        Great to have the dividers as well for customizable and versatile storage. I much prefer the divider option over the foam version.

        I use this case for my audio recording equipment.

                  Purchased this case for transporting and using photo gear in a wet and rocky environment, and as always, Pelican comes through with the perfect product. The case doesn't take up a huge amount of space in a small tent. I chose the orange color so I can easily keep track of the case. The new latches are harder to lock and unlock than my previous generation units, but I'll go for security with minor inconvenience every time with valuable gear. A great buy.

                        I am really disappointed in this set. I wanted to repurpose a 1520 to carry photo gear, but it just doesn't work well. Instructions are clearly outdated. They show two center dividers running left to right. Not 4 up and down. Had I been able to do what was shown on the Pelican Website instructions I would have been pleased.

                            Could not be happier. I have the following in my 1524:

                            Gripped D300 with 300 F4 af-s attached
                            70-200 2.8
                            105 2.8
                            16-35 F4
                            sb-900
                            tc-17
                            nikon digital timer
                            battery charger/cables/filters

                            Great for travelling with lots f gear or just for home storage. I am very happy with my pelican!

                              Comments about 1524 Waterproof 1520 Case with Padded Dividers (Yellow):

                              I had been looking into a hard case for my kit for a little while and after tons of research and measuring, I decided to go with the Pelican 1524.
                              I am super pleased I chose this case.
                              First off, the case DOES fit a DLSR with a grip, or a pro body. I have mine on its memory card side and has my largest lens(EF24-70 2.8L) attached and it fits in there no problem.
                              I had read a few reviews saying they couldn't fit their Gripped DSLR in the case and I am not sure what they were doing wrong but I have my 50D with Grip in it no problem.
                              The Velcro pad system is awesome. Plenty of different pads and sections to configure your kit in which ever way works for your gear.

                              CONS: None. Serious, If you are looking for a case to protect your gear on location or around the studio, or if you are travelling and checking it onto an airline, there are no real cons I can think off.

                              PROS: 1st off, its durability and build construction. Its built like a tank and I have no worries about any of my gear getting damaged at all while travelling or on location. The Pad system as mention before is very versatile and can hold many types of kits.

                                This case is great! Very strong and perfect for my dslr and lenses and accessories. It was a little confusing on how the dividers should be placed but i soon figured it out. For less that 150bucks this case is perfect.

                                      Comments about 1524 Waterproof 1520 Case with Padded Dividers (Desert Tan):

                                      I have over a dozen pelican cases but this is the first with Padded Dividers. I am using this case as an overflow case for extra camera gear that was crammed into a very old camera case. Still trying to figure out which items will go in. The padded dividers with velcro are a slight pain to use but should work out well. Pelican should give you a 1/2" of extra foam for the bottom of the case below the dividers 1/2" of foam to protect lenses and maybe a few more of the 4" dividers.
