          Comments about Pelican 1450 Case with Foam (Orange):

          I purchased the Pelican Case to house my emergency and survival equipment in my airplane while flying in the unforgiving wilderness of Alaska. This case has plenty of space, and is easily visible to anyone in the airplane. The orange makes it easy to identify and find if it gets lost or tossed about in the wilderness. I honestly can't find anything wrong with the case. Its perfect if you want to protect any gear from anything!

          Comments about Pelican 1450 Case with Foam (Orange):

          This is my third Pelican case. I have two smaller cases, but I needed a larger case to hold more photo gear. The case seems to be well built and my camera and lenses sit almost flush with the top of the foam padding. The removable padding is deeper than my smaller cases, so it leaves a deeper storage area for my gear. I can easily carry my D7100 camera body with the Nikon 70-200, F4 lens attached and there is still room for a second 16-35, F4 lens, spare battery and some filters. I strap the case into my solo canoe to protect my gear while doing wildlife photography. The only negatives for me is that the latches can be difficult to open and close with one hand and they make a very loud snapping noise when opened or closed. The latch on my other Pelican case has a push button release, which is easy to release and doesn't make so much noise. This is only a problem for me, because it can scare off the critters, I'm trying to photograph.

            Very nice case. Very solid and well made. Totally unnecessary for the Canon G1 X waterproof housing as recommended. The im2075 is a much better fit. Still, if you need this size it's a great case. I might even keep it despite not using it for what I'd intended it for.

            I used to work at a Environmental Consulting & Construction company and they used Pelican cases to protect all their expensive gear!

            That's why I looked specifically for this brand and B&H definitely has the best price and quickest shipping!

              Great Hard case to protect cameras and lenses in my case Micro 4/3 rds. camera and lenses.
              I picked this color because who in there right mind would try to walk off with this case in any public place. It can spotted a mile away.
              Also living in a area where the humidity is high this along with a few desiccants by pelican assures no mold will grow on my lenses. A problem l had that destroyed my Canon A1 camera and a few lenses years back.
              One of the best investments for any camera gear that you want to protect from damage or for long term storage where humidity may be a problem.

                I have owned multiple Pelican cases and still have each one. These things are perfect for storing gear that you want to protect and don't want to worry about. I have a 1450 for all my digital supplies (hdds, digital backs, etc) and another for my dslr. Its strong, lightweight, and completely customizable. My one complaint is that the handle is build it a way that doesn't allow you to carry more than one per hand.

                    I'm extremely confident that this Case is the only case for a serious DSLR user.

                    I love this case but I wish I got black or a dark less conspicuous color. It is a great color as far as security goes but you will be seen a mile away. The construction does not look cheap like the Zeikos case.

                          I bought the 1450 for a future trip to the Caribbean. I was looking for a case that could be locked with padlocks so I could cable the camera gear to something while not in use. Metal reinforced "locking holes or tabs" on this case seem adequate. It would probably take a lot of smashing to break the locking features off...

                          As far as the water tightness...I took the 1450 out on a kayak camping trip in the Chesapeake bay. The wind whipped up and was sending waves into the cockpit (and through the cheap sprayskirt I had) onto the case. My canon gear stayed nice and dry (as expected). The 1450 also made a nice storage case for the gear back at camp. No worries when your stuff is in this case.

                          The one downside of the 1450 is that it is too bulky for low impact or light camping. It is perfect however for transport and storage of your gear under other circumstances.

                            This is the second Pelican case I've purchased...wouldn't have gotten number two if I wasn't completely satisfied with number one. Got the orange thinking the stand-out color would be less likely to be an easy target. Extremely tight seal and latches are almost too firm...my wife can hardly open and close the case, but I have no worries about an unexpected opening. Very satisfied.

                              I just got this case along with my new Panasonic HMC40 DVCCAM camera. It comfortably holds the camera, batteries, charger, cables, etc. I probably should have gotten the next size up so i can fit my shotgun mic in the foam as well, but that's my fault. For now i just place the mic (in it's case) on top of the foam and it's held in there nicely, just a hassle when I open the case and have to move it out of the way.

                              I've had other Pelican case before and I'm always very happy with the pick and pluck foam system and the strength of the case. I always get my camera cases in bright orange because there are easier to keep an eye on, and easier to find in dark shooting situations. Besides, I live in Israel and don't need every cop and security guy thinking I'm carrying something suspicious. lol

                              I only wish there was an easy way to attach a shoulder strap to this case.

Very stable, and fairly light! Even if you're not a photographer its great for medicine, food, dvds, or your Ex boyfriend/girlfriends gifts to you! Don't Miss on it! Check it out today! The Pelican 1450. "May I add that it comes in other various colors, and I can assure you that there's a perfect color and match just for you!

                                  We use this Pelican case to store our Strobist flash + Pocket Wizard accessories during transport. The pick-and-pluck method of customizing the inner compartment space is fairly good. The plastic case itself feels pretty bulletproof.
