This Pelican case really doesn't need a review, it's the best case available on the planet and was my first purchase from B&H. When I received it, I could only open it about 5 inches and I was afraid to force it. I called B&H the following day, explained my concern, and they told me to FORCE IT, that if anything broke they'd replace it at no charge including shipping. I forced it and it opened right up, the rear hinges are heavily spring loaded. My photo buddies have told me never to buy anywhere other than B&H, now I know why! Thanks guys!

Case is easy to use and to create custom case layout with the punchout foam. Only issue is the lid foam was cut too small so it doesn't fit the lid tightly. Have to place it back into the lide after every openning. Added some additional foam and tape behind the foam to keep it in place.

    Everything came in fine. Purchase the case to transport and protect multiple cameras for my photography classes. So far so good! Wheels and handle bar are convenient for rolling down the hall way plus with the handle bar extended I can stack another briefcase on top to ride along with.

    Pelican 1560 Case

    By Connor

    from Prescott, AZ

    Comments about 1560 Case with Foam (Black):

    The case has a tremendous amount of space, I used the pick and pluck foam and was able to fit all of my gear with room to spare! I am looking to purchase a new body and lenses soon and I have plenty enough space to fit everything I am looking to get on top of what I have. I fly a lot for my work and the case gets checked in for every flight and I can fly easily knowing all my gear is protected indefinitely. Great case, buy with ease knowing it's a great product.

        Comments about 1560 Case with Foam (Black):

        This case won't fit in the over-head compartment on an air plane. You need the Pelican 1510 for that. But these cases rock! They're water-tight, strong, and highly customizable.

        My only gripe is those hard wheels. Pelican would do well to start putting rubber skate-type wheels on them, because when you're dragging your case around on a sidewalk, the vibrations are insane! It drives me crazy and is such an obviously needed extra that I'm deducting a star. Other than that, its' perfect.

          Comments about 1560 Case with Foam (Silver):

          This case is serious and held a Printrbot PLAY 3d printer, a 3DS 3d scanner, PLA spools and tools perfectly. Only reason I didn't pack the computer in there as well is that the PC was too wide.

          This case traveled through many flights within Peru and the sensitive 3d printing equipment remained intact and aligned. The grey color is awesome.

          At about $130 it was a great deal. Looks like luggage, performs like a titanium safe! The pinch and pluck foam worked really well and the inside of the case looks like it was custom made for my printer.

          It was very comfortable to roll around airports and streets. The handle extended to a nice height. I did not have to crouch.

                      I'm using this case to store and transport a Blackmagic Studio camera with lens and accessories. Typical pluck foam is great for a snug fit. I got the 1560 because I intend on getting another BM Studio camera and there is plenty of room to safely store both.

                      My favorite thing about the 1500 series, you ask? It's the last in line with 2 latches. Once you hit the 1600s they start throwing latches all over the lid. That may be necessary if you're going into combat or something, but the simple 2 latch lid has a tight fit and is completely satisfactory.

                      If there was one thing I'd like to see added is either a tripod clamp, or an accessory to store a tripod on the exterior of the case.

                        If your going to buy a case for any pro video equipment, I would highly reccomend the 1560 Pelican Case. It fits all my equipment snug, so I'm never worried about my stuff getting damaged. The handle that is used in conjunction with the roll wheels is long and makes travel a breeze. Also there is two handle for ease of transportation. I would have no worries checking this on an airplane just because of the durability. I am going on a couple wedding shoots soon and this will be perfect for its professional look and feel. Thanks Pelican.

                            I have 3 of these cases, and they are outstanding. I use one specifically for DJI Phantom 3. It fits everything perfect with no wiggle room. I use the pluck foam, and I have each case customized for exactly what I need. I highly recommend these cases, or any case from Pelican.

                                I use the 1560 and 1510 as suitcases. The 1560 is just the right size, not too big, not too small. The 1510 is great for 1-2 travel, but don't even try to cram a pelican case, no over-stuffing. The 1560 will hold a weeks worth if you pack smart and re-match outfits. BTW, not all suitecases look the same, when this comes banging down the luggage belt, there will be no chance of mistaken identity....PEACE
