Perfectly fits my D700 with multiple accessories. I filled the case with tissue paper and submerged it for few mintues to test and the interior stayed dry as advertised. The only thing I regret was not thinking before I started plucking out the foam. Initially I traced around my gear with a marker and then plucked the foam. had I placed my equipment upside down and then traced, I could have flipped the foam over when finished to hide the marks. Minor detail, but it might help anyone who reads this review. Also be sure if you plan to store anything in the case long term its very important to have some form of dessiccant in the case.

          I bought this product to hold and protect my radio control transmitter and accessories. Very sturdy build with nice finish. The foam was easy to modify for fit of my equipment. One small complaint is that the case does not sit flat on the hinged site on carpet...almost falling over. On hard surfaces this is not a problem.

            I use this product to carry a variety of video gear, from a blackmagic pocket cinema camera, to lenses, to multiple go pros and hardware. Working mostly in live concert videography, this case is perfect for rugged and less than safe conditions. Easy to throw in the back of van in between road cases and guitar cases, and small enough to only require one hand to carry, it really is the perfect case for any situation.

            We have 10 of these for cameras and research gear that we take 40-70nm offshore in small boats. They take a pounding and are constantly covered in salt water. Despite limited maintenance, they continue to keep everything inside dry and in tact.

            You can never go wrong.g with a Pelican case, just get the size you need. My dslr, wireless misc and a couple lens fit great and I know they are protected.

              I purchased this box to carry around all of my vaping equipment. it holds everything safely and securely. With the cut outs I was able to customize my case to fit my needs. I would definitely recommend this for any serious vapor. # blowclouds #teamcloudwalkerz

                Great case for my Sony a7s. I would maybe recommend the padded divides over the foam. Padded divider are more diverse to use and can be used over and over. Foam is a one shot deal.

                I bought this case to store and carry a TLR and a rangefinder w/extra lens and a few small lens accessories. They fit perfect and are completely protected. The pick and pull foam works great as well.

                I bought this case not for photography but for my RC transmitter (controller). This thing is RUGGED!!!!! There is plenty of foam in there and it's easy to tear the foam to contour what ever you choose to put inside. If I need another case for something I will definitely be looking at Pelican again.

                  I use this case for 2 Sony 4k Video cameras
                  it is a waterproof strong case.
                  I have owned 2 other Pelican cases and this is the first one that has locking latches that are hard to work. they are made the same but not quite fitted right. A little work shaving some of the plastic on the lock made them ok

                  This a a higher quality compact case and so far it has performed up to expectations. I use this his to trasport my 330 mm quad copter and equipment. I modified the case and add a 7 inch monitor in the inner lid for FPV and I could be happier with the results. This is a cool case and is worth the price

                            This is one step shy of being bullet proof. I upgraded the Pick `N Pluck to Kaizen foam for a slightly more snug fit but it is very impressive how much it can take. I took it up to the roof of our office and threw it off and it bounced and slide along the concrete for 10 ft after landing and the items in the case were undamaged in the slightest.

                              I really appreciate the quality of Pelican cases, their sturdiness, strength, and design. I feel confident know my equipment is well protected and don't have to worry about damages being inflicted within the cases foam support.
