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.

      This is just as rugged as the large 1750 case that I recently bought, and I like the distinctive color (orange) that allows easy identification when many similar cases are present.

        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 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 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.

                      I purchased this product as a gift for a fellow kayaker and photo enthusiast. He was thrilled with the durable construction and interior padding. However, it can be intimidating cutting the foam on the first-pass, as to not make a mistake. Pelican has provided us the opportunity to take extremely expensive camera equipment to places we would not ordinarily dare--in a kayak. Thanks, Pelican!

                        I use the case for my Canon 60D. Fits nicely in the case with plenty of room to spare for multiple lenses, batteries, and miscellaneous accessories. Great buy for the money.
