    Pelican cases are my favourite gear in all my arsenel of equipment. They're the most reliable and I never worry about my gear inside them.

    The interior foam is a bit costly though, and they never last that long either. If I would buy it again i'd purchase the non-foam version, than go to my local foam store and get it cut up myself. They'd also be more durable and last longer.

    One issue with the case is the automatic purge valve. I take mine on flights all the time and (either I got a lemon or this is the norm) my case lid warps quite considerably during transit. This means that equipment on the inner region of the case can get damaged as it becomes crushed by the engorging lid. My industrial suction cups had to be bent back into a flat shape as they were damaged in this way.

    It also means that you CANNOT open the case immediately after landing from a plane. It takes approximately an hour for the valve to allow enough air back in for air pressure balance restoration, allowing you to open and use the case once more.

    I cannot say for sure, whether this issue is related to all pelican cases or whether the valve on my case is faulty. It does work - it just works very slowly.

    One thing I love about pelican cases though, is the fact that over the years they develop plenty of scratches, the colour fades a little and stickers are plastered all over them. It shows years of experience through planes and rough baggage handlers. I love my pelican cases rough and worn as it shows the life it's been through to protect my gear.

    I use my pelican case for everything, even holiday travelling. However it's way overengineered for use other than protecting expensive and professional equipment.

    The new Pelican 1650 case is really a Storm Case. The case will not stand up straight because the bottom feet or fins are no longer part of the new design. The long main handle is gone so if the case load is not balanced it's hard to carry. The old design allowed you to position your grip to compensate for the load imbalance. Also the built in retractable extension handle is now two piece with supports that get caught on everything. The old design was one piece and flat it was way better and easier to deal with. I wasn't a big fan of the Storm Cases and really liked the Pelican products but with the merger of Pelican and Storm cases, Pelican cases have really become a Storm case. I understand that changes happen but they should be changes that make the case better not worse. These cases are still a good deal but I would rather have the option and pay a little bit more and get a case that works. There was no reason to change this case other then to make it cheaper.

        Loses a star only because I would like it better if the foam came in shallower sections. I have some flatter items that don't require such deep slots in the case. Otherwise, it will serve my purposes well.

        Pelican 1650: BIG, BULKY, and SECURE

        By JenR

        from Texas

        Comments about 1650 Case with Foam (Black):

        this case is entirely too large for my petite body, but it's exactly what I was looking for when it came to security. My equipment fits snug with no rattles. The pluck foam makes it easier to customize how I want to organize my things, but they easily detach from another after a few uses. This isn't a big deal, but does happen. It is very heavy for my body type, but I wanted a large case that could take drops, and protect my equipment from water. So, all-in-all I got what I paid for.

          How I use the product: transporting networking tools and materials. Sometimes across town, sometimes across the country.Things that are great about it: durability, fit and finish, wheels!Things that aren't so great about it: It weighs a fair amount on its own. If you're shipping (vs carrying), keep this in mind. It pretty much has to be this substantial to be this rugged, though.

            Comments about 1650 Case with Foam (Black):

            I purchased this case/foam combo because of my past positive experience with Pelican products. My plan was to use this case for "All in One" transport for extended shoots. The case itself is great quality and what I needed. However, for reasons I don't understand, the foam insert set has deviated from the usual Pelican 1/2 inch square pick and pluck foam to 5/8 x 5/8 square inch foam blocks. In over 20 years, I have always been able to plan, configure and prep these cases in just a few minutes. These larger blocks do not allow the flexibility and security of the 1/2 inch ones. Plus, working up the case layout took three times as long. The larger blocks mean larger gaps when you need to oversize a position and too-tight fits when you need to undersize. What appears to be a small change is a BIG pain. Pelican needs to go back to the 1/2 inch foam blocks for this product. Also, the bottom-most foam layer is at least 2 inches shorter than the length of the case. So, four stars for a product that could easily have been five.

            Comments about 1650 Case with Foam (Black):

            Case is super sturdy and a perfect fit with lots of room left for more gear. The pick and pull foam is great and so easy to work with. We kept all of it so we could re plug if necessary at a later date. Only complaint is that their will still be specks of foam on all the fear. Not sure if this will go away after while but we are just keeping an air spray can with the gear and spraying off before using and/changing lenses out.

            Comments about 1650 Case with Foam (Black):

            I have two 1650 cases to store telescope equipment:
            - one to store a Celestron Nexstar 8SE (tube + mount + small accessories)
            - one to store a Celestron CGEM DX mount.
            They fit in the case using either the provided foam or using the original styrofoam of the Celestron product (but in that case you need to do some cutting of the styrofoam to adjust its size to the case).

            The equipment fits nicely and feels well protected. The only drawback is that this is quickly getting very heavy: the case is 25lb, the CGEM DX mount is 55lb so that's 80lb total! But that's still transportable thanks to the wheels and large handles.

            Comments about 1650 Case with Foam (Black):

            This is a very good case. I needed to consolidate all of my camera equipment since I was taking in so many bags to shoots. It's wonderfully built and I love just taking this and a couple of tripods into a shoot, as well as getting to wheel it. I feel that my cameras and equipment are very safe in there. My only gripes are: I'm happy about the size, and yet if I'm in a confined space, it's a pretty bulky beast, and it's not comfortable to use as a chair for a long period of time. I wish I didn't have to replace the foam once I make some equipment changes, but that is what it is. Main problem is weight. The two bags I had were not particularly heavy, but the case, even without stuff in it, is a little on the heavy side, and I have a bad back, so I have to be very careful about lifting it in and out of car or up stairs or platforms. But, overall, it's a good one.

            This case is big enough that I can fit my entire sound kit in it. There is a ring of set foam around the sides and then the interior is the pick-n-pluck stuff, but there are two separate layers of it. I was able to make two levels of cutouts so that I can stack items on top of each other which is great for me. It could make things a little more awkward for narrow but tall items.The build is very strong and the wheels are nice, I haven't had a problem with them catching the edges of rugs and they are fine on rough pavement. Haven't tried taking it off-road but I wouldn't expect any case to handle that well.It's a little heavy and the size gets a little awkward, so if you don't absolutely need to go this big I would get the next size down, any smaller would not have worked for me though.

                The 1650 is a great case. It seals well, is very rugged, and the extending handle is a nice addition. Unfortunately, this version with the extending handle also has feet on the back. An older version that I had only had ribs on the back which made it easy to take up stairs without lifting the case. This version is easier to pull with the longer handle though.

                  Comments about 1650 Case with Foam (Black):

                  Use this to carry lenses BMCC Camera anton Bauer Batteries and marshall Monitor. Fits everything precisely and the pick and pluck is fairly easy to remove and to shape. The only problem are the feet when lying down are just a bit too long and it is hard to get the right angle to have the wheels roll out of the vehicle. but this is minor.

                    Can't say enough about Pelican cases! Most durable ones on the market, and B&H is Great! Always competitive prices and delivery is super fast!
