          This is a great product, it holds my motorola droid turbo in it's otterbox case, my wallet and my car keys. Keeps them dry and it floats if you drop it in the water.

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

          I needed a small case to protect my Globalstar SAT phone for a backpacking trip. It's the perfect size for the phone and USB charger. You have to buy the Pelican 1042 Foam insert for full protection. It's water resistant and very impact resistant. I'm not worried about water because I have a water resistant backpack with a rainfly so any water that gets through the pack will be protected by the case.

          The lid seals tight and it's easy to open and close.

          I'm very happy with it.

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

          What is "Clear Red"? To be accurate, the description should read, "Clear with Red Colored Lining". That said, this appears to be a solid case, consistent with Pelican's reputation. B&H customer service did a great job answering my questions, and shipping was fast. Since it is a clear case (and presumably you would like to be able to see through it), it would have been nice if they had placed the Pelican label on the edge of the case, instead of right on the face.

              I bought this to store my new Tascam DR-40 recorder. It fits the recorder snugly but perfectly, with room for the USB cable tucked-in on the side. Quality is outstanding, and I've felt confident bringing my recorder on several camping/hiking trips and I know it will be almost impossible for it to ever become wet or damaged in this case! If you shop around for cases this is top quality for such a great price, by far. Again, this case just fits the DR-40 with really no room for it to "rattle" around

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

                I have several of these for general protective purposes. One can hold my Fujifilm X100S (minus the lens shade) in wet environments, such as on a boat or on a rainy day. Most recently, I bought two of them to hold my Phottix Odin transmitters. The three receivers fit perfectly in one 1040 case, while the transmitter and other accessory cables that come with it fit in the other one. I picked up this tip from a Phottix rep at a trade show, who travels all the time with this setup. I can just throw these two cases into my kit and off I go.

                    Use it for keeping valuables (passport, credit cards, key fobs) when I travel. It's pretty much as solid a case as you are gonna find.

                    This, however, is my second version of the case because the closing clasp broke on the first one. It may have been a bad batch. It may have been a freak flaw. But where the clasp 'clicks' into place, the plastic broke on not one, but both sides leaving it unable to remain locked closed. I obviously like these cases enough to buy another one but hoped it would have lasted longer than 3 years of light/average use.

                        Why take a chance?

                          I use the Micro Case to protect my Tascam Digital Audio Recorder. It's just larger than the Tascam which allows me to put some foam in and keep it all safe and snug.

                          The little hook, well for what I'm carrying I'll never use it, I don't want to trust it because the tascam isn't light and I don't want it falling. Otherwise I guess its fine. The case is well built, sturdy latches, and built to take a little punishment. Exactly as it should.

                          It is a beautiful box and constructed to be beaten. It's a combination that you know it is a Pelican product.

                                      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.

                                        My boyfriend is a photographer and loves these for storing his memory cards and lens caps and remotes. These are weather sealed and are perfect protection for whatever you may need to protect. I really recommend this!
