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.

Comments about 1560 Case with Foam Set (Silver):

super tough, forever warranty, waterproof dustproof, when im out at the field flying and it starts raining i can throw my radio gear and chargers in their cases so quick and then not be worried at all about them. More time to put my planes away so they dont get wet or blow down the field.

    Comments about 1560 Case with Foam Set (Black):

    I purchased the Pelican 1560 to hold my Video gear. I used it to hold my Panasonic GH4, Sony A6300 and assortments of lens and accessories. The Pelican 1560 is the way to go. All my components have a home inside the case. It is very rugged and keep every thing safe and secure.

        Comments about 1560 Case with Foam Set (Silver):

        I like Pelican cases. It is definitely interesting trying to figure out the best pieces to pluck since you only get one shot to do it right, but there is always additional foam to order if I need it.
        But overall, I trust my equipment is protected in these cases, which is the main reason for owning them.

            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 Set (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 Set (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.

                Never had a single issue with any of my cases from this company. Solid construction, made in the US, and sturdy as hell, and very good at assuaging my neurotic fears of gear damage.

                  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.
