    Comments about 1510NF Carry On Case without Foam (Black):

    On a recent cross-country trip I had an unfortunate encounter with a deer. The camera gear survived the encounter with no issues; the truck and sadly the deer were not so fortunate.
    I kept my photography gear in a dedicated photo backpack for years and was never really pleased with the system. It's not that hook and loop "Velcro" does not have its uses, but fighting with it when reconfiguring my backpack was always a pain in the ^%$. I considered a hard case frequently, but as a self-professed "neat freak" I was not a fan of the pick-n-pluck foam or the typical irregular cuts in blank foam pads. TREKPAK solved all of my issues. The TREKPAK system provides excellent protection for my gear, it's neat and tidy and easily reconfigurable. I am so impressed with the TREKPAK system I ordered a second Pelican case and TREKPAK 1510 insert. I also purchased extra pin set, dividers and lens pads. These items are relatively inexpensive and allow for quick reconfiguration.

    I use to carry all my camera gears in the Pelican 1510. This is my third one in 25 years. I still use the first one but I took a new one because I've to go in a real humid environment. It's a great product and the service made by BH was fantastic.

    I won't go home without it...

    By Moses

    Comments about 1510NF Carry On Case without Foam (Desert Tan):

    Case is built solid meeting my rigorous travel needs. I specifically like the double locking claps and sturdiness of the case even after excessively stuffing the case with all my stuff.

    Also, I just completed a three day business trip; all my stuff fit to include a jacket and binder.

    If you purchase Tan Case expect some scuff marks; they come off easy.

      Comments about 1510NF Carry On Case without Foam (Black):

      I was looking for a smaller case to use as a carry on and as a travel case for hunting trips. I have 4 of the larger Pelican cases and the 1510 is ideal for my travel uses. It along with its bigger brothers will be on there way to Arizona in a few days(on a hunting trip) and looking forward to the ease of travel the 1510 allows instead of carrying a bulky travel bag. I would recommend the Pelican 1510 to anyone who travels or just needs a good tough case!

            I shoot music festivals all over the world. I travel extensively and needed a solid camera bag that would meet carry-on sizes requirements but also handle all my gear. The Pelican 1510 is great because I can fit both pro bodies, 6 lenses, 2 speedlights, triggers, pocketwizards as well as some accessories. Not only does it hold everything snug, it also has the ability to add a TSA approved lock. Whether I'm at the festival or traveling in the airport, I feel like my gear is protected and safe.

              Comments about 1510NF Carry On Case without Foam (Black):

              I use this case to haul gear I need to teach classes onsite.

              A hard-shell case is ideal for me because with it I am confident that nothing inside will be crushed by other people carelessly cramming stuff into an airplane overhead bin.

              This one replaces a Pelican case I recently purchased that was billed as carry-on size, but is actually too big.

              I like the very substantial hinges and latches, and the fact that the padlock points are reinforced with metal, which might slow down a thief thinking about cutting off the locks.

              The wheels are a little hard; I'd like to see softer urethane wheels used instead.

                  I'm a Pelican junkie... Here - I admit that!
                  But this last case is just perfect! Nothing excessive, and no shortcomings.
                  Phantom 2 fits like a glove in (no foam) close the lid and no rattling inside, like it was made for it (maybe it was...).
                  Typical Pelican quality and attention to details plus ruggedness.
                  Price was very reasonable and shipping is free - no competitions are here.
                  Thank you B&H for all those years of 1st class service!

                    Meets the exact size requirements for Carryon and its rugged construction, waterproofing & wheels make it an ideal Carryon. Pack the solid stuff first and leave soft compressibles for the last and you can squeeze in a little more and easily close the lid

                    Comments about 1510NF Carry On Case without Foam (Black):

                    In the past, as a firefighter and paramedic, I have used Pelican cases to protect sensitive and expensive life saving equipment... I trusted Pelican then & I trust them now. I purchased the 1510 to carry my gear with me on a trip to Mexico as carry-on since my usual soft sided bag would be too big. This case has already proved it is secure enough to protect my gear after an accidental fall off of the back bumper of our car... Not so much as a scratch on the case! I have to include that I had intended to place my soft case inside the Pelican but it was too big so I purchased the divider padding and I am certain that helped. Knowing my gear will be in this case on the plane has me confident that my investment will be well protected on this trip and any future trips

                      I use this as suitcase mostly, rather than lug camera gear. It's rocks because it's extremely tough and very recognisable in airports once you've customised it with appropriate stickers.

                      Also very useful for sitting on when travelling on packed public transport or waiting in long slow lines.

                      I expect this to last the rest of my life.

                          We build emergency communications boxes using this case as the basis. It has performed flawlessly and is extremely durable.

                          Only reason for 4 out of 5 stars is there is no frame kit available for this model.

                            The only possible negative to associate with this case is that it is a little heavy but weight is a small price to pay for the protection that it offers.
