Dividers are much more efficient at organizing the space than either of the foam options. I can now fit twice as much gear (Canon 20D with attached 28-70 lens, 40D with attached 70-200 IS, 580EX flash, Sekonic 358 meter, Tokina 11-16, Tamron 17-35, Lens Baby II, Canon TS 24, and all the spare power, filters, memory and accessories I could ever need. The dividers are firm and secure and I am certain that if the case were dropped, my gear would be safe. The only drawback is that with all that gear, the case weighs a ton! It more than suits my purpose for quick, safe and secure access in the back of my Jeep.

Disappointed in this product. First its a royal pain to adjust the dividers. They are velcro and the entire inside is of a soft material that allows the velcro to stick, but any time you try to move them around they get stuck to the inside material and just become a pain to adjust.

Next I felt the padding wasn't thick enough to support or protect sensitive equipment like camera gear. While it is somewhat thick, I expected the bottom and sides to have more to them. Also theres no way to secure the items to keep them from rolling around inside. For example, place a camera lens in a slot, as soon as you stand the box up or if it tips over, the lens goes rolling around in the slot.

I gave this item two starts for two reasons. One its a Pelican product. Usually I swear by their products, but this one leaves alot to be desired. Second star is because while it is a pain to adjust and work with, the construction of the materials is top notch.

          I used this for organizing my Canon bodies and lens. It is exactly what i needed. It was a little challenging with assembly as the velcro kept sticking EVERYWHERE, but once I got the hang of it all went well. Highly recommended

            So much easier than the foam that the case came with. I should've bought this earlier when I had the chance. My gear is always changing so it's nice to have the ability to change when I see fit.

              My original case had the foam interior and that became a problem as my photography eqipment changed over time.(Once you configure the case it's a done deal.) With this divider system I am able to change it as needed. I should have bought the case with this in it.

                Comments about Pelican 1605 Padded Divider Set:

                Yes they are expensive but they are also very well made. I don't know what some of the other reviews are talking about when they say it's hard to move around. It's not suppose to! Yes it's difficult sometimes to position the dividers exactly where you want it to but that just comes with the territory of being secure, making sure it never moves when gear is pushing on it on all directions.

                I bought this to replace the foam I originally had. The foam, as great of a protection it was, compromised a lot space for that protection. And as a filmmaker who was constantly changing gear, I needed something more versatile and could fit more. The dividers allowed me to fit about three times the amount of gear. Yes, it is very heavy now with all the extra gear weight. I wish I had bought the Pelican case with wheels years ago. Maybe one day I will exchange it out. For now it still is the best protection for my gear and the dividers make the Pelican case a new use.

                  Disappointed in this product. First its a royal pain to adjust the dividers. They are velcro and the entire inside is of a soft material that allows the velcro to stick, but any time you try to move them around they get stuck to the inside material and just become a pain to adjust.

                      I own two Pelican 1600 cases and now have the dividers in both. The pluck and pull foam is okay but when you are adding new gear things are so much simpler with this divider set that gives you so many options for making compartments for your gear.

                        The shipping box was crushed which left the padded dividers okay but not the padded tray it was in. The tray was deformed. I am sure after some time, it will reshape it self but it was bad enough to where it didn't sit even in the Pelican case.

                              Replaced the normal foam with these dividers and can not believe I waited so long to do so! I can fit much more gear in my 1600 now. I also like that I do not have to worry about the foam breaking down and causing loose debris in the case. Much easier to keep clean. I am a little worried that the material seems a little loose on the main interior pads, hoping it stays together long enough to get my moneys worth!

                                    Not sure how I would fit all the odds and ends into the case without something like this to keep everything organized.

                                    Like the mod ability of the piece. Next I will have to see it in transport action before I feel fully confident in protecting the gear over the foam.

                                      Used in my 1600 series Pelican case for my DSLR and gear. Works a lot better than the pick & Pluck foam. The only thing is that you need two sets to properly fit my gear. One set would work OK for medium format gear.

                                      I had a pelican 1600 case with no interior now I can finally use the case.
