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

        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!
        Loyal costumer.

          Precision case

          Comments about 1510NF Carry On Case without Foam (Olive Drab Green):

          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

          Lives up to the brand reputation

          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

            Comments about 1510NF Carry On Case without Foam (Olive Drab Green):

            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.

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

                    These cases are indestructible. I have three, not because they break, but because I keep finding reasons to buy another. One is used daily and it lives a hard life. I've never had a problem. The multiple colors are nice because you can quickly identify the contents of each case. The open-cell foam Pelican sells isn't that great. I recommend buying 20-lb closed-cell foam and cutting custom inserts, hence the "Case without Foam" purchase. Buy it. You won't be disappointed if you need to fly with your gear.

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

                    I used the SKB version of this case for about 2 years and I eventually got fed up with it and purchased the Pelican because of the small features like having a top handle and larger fittings for security locks. Not only do the Pelican cases have small features that their competitors don't have the case quality is bar-none.

                        I bought this 1510 pelican to use as my carry on luggage when flying. I know what you're thinking "Wow, that's a lot to spend on carry on luggage" but lets face it, we all know the saying "Buy the best and cry once" right? I've been through a lot of luggage before and I plan on never having to buy any ever again after this purchase. I also own the 1560 and have owned it for 5 years and it's the only suit case that's ever lasted me that long hence why I bought the 1510. Oh and did I mention it's water proof? Buy pelican... You won't regret it one bit.

                        Pelican is a world renowned name and a name of excellence. I don't know how to explain to somewhat what your investing in when you buy a Pelican case. Usually that is not an issue however because anyone who had even been to a wedding or any other type of photo shoot had seen these professional cases. I love the sturdiness of my Pelican and how you can feel the strength and rigidity of the case when you pull it open. The day my Pelican 1510 case I climbed up on the roof in the rain and threw it off. The case fell two storues, hit the ground and almost started laughing at me. Moral of the story- buy Pelican from BHP.

                            The case is very well built, very sturdy, and I love it!
                            It does have larger than expected wheel wells, but I managed to work around them.

                            I bought the empty case, and bought neoprene foam pads and cut them myself. I just like the closed cell foam over the pick-n-pluck foam.

                            Overall, this is a perfect case for all your gear!

                              I use these cases, lined with foam, to hold professional video cameras. They are weather-proof, have wheels for easy transportation, excellent protection for equipment, and last well.

                                    This case is small enough to haul through airports, etc., yet holds a decent amount of equipment. This case is used in conjunction with a 1510 padded case for non-critical equipment. Only had it a short time but have used it on several overseas trips with no problems.

                                      i'm using it for my tools with a custom foam for each tool. a little bit heavy but totally worth it.

                                      I've seen this product used for Military, Fire, Police, & Coast Guard, that's why we picked it. They're a tough, pressure sealed, waterproof, no nonsense form factor that can hold anything. We use it to house portable alternate energy generators & equipment. You can lock it with a padlock (two locks if you're really into locking stuff up). It comes in different colors (good for classification purposes but we use black as default). They can seem a little pricey at first but when you see the quality of these you'll know you're getting your monies worth.
