    Comments about 1660 Case with Foam (Black):

    My collection of camera stuff (lenses, batteries, chargers, remotes, flash units, etc) outgrew the bag I had. It was bulging at the seams, and I was having to make choices about what gear to bring and what to leave behind. The result? My stuff ended up getting scattered all over the place. Not anymore. This Pelican case is big enough to hold all of it. Solid as a rock. It's heavier, but the wheels work well so weight only comes into play when I'm lifting it into the back of my car. It even doubles as a small seat when I need a breather on location. I got the divider/compartment addition for it, and it's some pretty strong and tough velcro. I'm currently using this case to hold a Nikon D800 body with grip, plus the following lenses (all Nikon): 70-200 VR, 24-120, 16-35, 60mm macro, and 50mm. It has room for lens hoods, the battery charger, 4 batteries, a small case holding the remote shutter, a Pelican 4-card CF holder, a strap, tripod adapters, and a few more odds and ends.

    Big & Great!

    By Beni

    from Trenton, New Jersey

    Comments about 1660 Case with Foam (Black):

    I was looking for a case that would keep my computers safe and protected. Initially,I did my homework on the dimensions making sure everything I planned to store in the case. Even with my meticulousness, i underestimated just how much space was in the pelican. Over course it was a great underestimation. It's light for the size, but as anyone with experience with a pelican knows, overtime, it gets heavy. The Wheels comes in handy and is necessary for the size. Great product!

                Comments about 1660 Case with Foam (Black):

                We go through Pelican cases on a regular basis due to the harsh treatment from shipping companies like FedEx and local New York messenger services. The older Pelican models would tear (yes, tear the near indestructable hard plastic) at the base and the pin holding the wheels would be knocked out of place. The new design at the base should give FedEx handlers a challenge.

                            All that for under $300. Very happy.

                                Anyone that has used Pelican products before knows that they are the top of the line as far as shipping/storage containers. These cases do not disappoint. Whether you decide to use the foam inserts or not they are among the best as far as transit cases are concerned. I am very satisfied with the product and very satisfied in the expediency that they were shipped to me. I will use B & H again for the purchase of products due to the price and quality of their products.

                                I'm using this to carry several LED lights. it is a great case, just really big. So big it is a bit hard to get around. the handle is a little to short in my opinion.

                                    Comments about 1660 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

                                    We use these cases to ship training equipment all over the country. The cases hold up very well even when mishandled by the shipping companies. On rare occasions a clasp make need replacement, and Pelican is quick to respond with free spare parts. We have had a few cases over the years that were so man-handled that they required replacement. Pelican has always honored their lifetime warrenty without any questions. Full replacement of the case!! Great company!
