      Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Solid Yellow with Black Lining):

      With the addition of pick-and-pluck foam, I use this case to protect my Cyber Commander, Cyber Sync Trigger Transmitter, and CSXCV Tranceivers. I wouldn't trust them to anything less as my livelihood depends on this stuff.

      Why take a chance?

      Beauty and the beast

      By Abusive box user

      Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Clear Red with Colored Lining):

      This is my third box that I've purchase and there more on my shopping cart.
      It is a beautiful box and constructed to be beaten. It's a combination that you know it is a Pelican product.

          I use it to protect my Tascam DR-40 linear field recorder. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for top notch protection. Anything less would be foolish.

                I use one of this size to store my flash triggers set. I have one to also store my gopro camera and batteries. Though the various mounts and grip go in a separate box of their own. I would like to see the company provide padded dividers so I can make smaller compartments even in the cases these small.

                  Best Uses

                    Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Solid Black with Black Lining):

                    I got this to protect my Droid Ultra when backpacking. Much cheaper than an otterbox, and actually waterproof. I can fit my phone and large external battery pack for a week-long trip (with a little space left over) and not worry about wet, crushed, cracked screen, or anything else, even when jammed down in my pack. Also, it's future proof because it will fit my next phone too.

                    Only downside is that the hole for the included "carabiner" is too small to use a more robust hook, but that is very minor.

                        I am an avid fly fisherman, and needed to protect my Canon camera while wading the Pere Marquette river in Michigan fly fishing for Salmon in waders. Kept my camera dry in deep water, and bad weather.

                        FANTASTIC PRODUCT!

                        This case is also very tough, it has a strong latch that doesn't feel like it will break the tenth time you open it. I bought this case to protect my digital camera from crushing, dropping and oil saturation. I also purchased the foam block that goes inside to keep the camera from moving around inside. It has a padded interior but wont keep things from moving around. It has a rubber seal that appears to provide an excellent seal from dirt and moisture.

                        This is the perfect size case for two lighting strike triggers, its batteries and camera cables. Although a little large for the camera bag, when I use them I take them out of the case and use a soft pouch.

                          canon shutter remote

                                    Great hard shell case! I use it to keep my western digital passport hard drive. It is very sturdy. I also really like the soft padding it has inside.

                                      Very solid construction. The lining does a great job of protecting your gear.

                                      I use this to store a couple of small accessories for my laptop. Fits well and the case feels very sturdy. Probably should have ordered the one with the transparent lid so that I can see the contents. A bit hevier than I expected for a case this size.

                                      Uwed to shtore s couple ofsmall accessories for my laptop. Solidly built but a bit heavier than expected. I probably should have ordered the ones with the transparent lid. Will probably do that teh next time I order.

                                          Like all the Pelican products, this one is built like a tank. I have no reservations about storing a delicate device in this case.

                                          Rugged as you'd expect from Peli, but also impressed with case lining of foam in the "roof" and rubber in the base. The foam insert is a must for delicate electronic equipment (I use for lavalier mics).
