    Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Black):

    I got this case for my Canon EOS Rebel SL1; it is nearly a perfect fit. I could stand on this case in the pouring rain and have no fear that the contents will be harmed. I will not test this intentionally, but I could probably drop this case and find my camera unharmed inside. I consider a Pelican case to be an investment in the longevity of my equipment.

    Perfect for small system protection

    By Colorado Leica

    from Littleton, CO

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Yellow):

    This case is ideal for transporting a camera and an extra lens, with room left over for accessories. Depending on the camera, you can even get three un-mounted lenses and two bodies in it comfortably. I remove the center foam, and the camera and lens stay in small neoprene pouches, which gives them and extra margin of cushioning, with plenty of room around them for film or accessories (see photo). Don't forget to include a desiccant package to keep moisture out, especially if you working in a marine environment (the desiccant in the plastic case, which makes it easy to recharge in a microwave is the best; B&H sells it). This is my third Pelican case; keep the seal and the mating edge of the case clean, replace the seal every few years, and your case will provide years of protection.

    Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Yellow):

    This box fit my Sony a6000 with 18-200mm lens, 16mm +UWA+fisheye, 4 batteries, and memory cards. I could get creative and add another layer for charger. Easier access than the Watershed bag I have been using for river trips. The increased bulk and 1.5lb weight are worth it when I come back with more photos.

      Using the 1300 for my canon G7X, batteries, charger and underwater housing. It was very easy to form the two layers of foam to fit my equipment. The 3rd,thinner layer stays on bottom but can be removed.

        Durable and easily customizable. Great for transporting backup hard drives off site. Enough room for 2 ATA drives to have plenty of padding and probably enough for a third. I would probably get non static foam if using it for hard drives.

            You just can't go wrong with Pelican cases. Consistent quality, durability, and great design in so many shapes and sizes. This one is great for my field monitor and several batteries, chargers, cables, etc. And the orange color is very easy to spot on a shoot - indoors or out.

                  this case is awesome. i feel safe taking my camera around! thats what i use it for but you could use it for anything. all you have to do is remove some foam pieces from inside the case to match the shape of whatever your conceiling in the box. the box also fits perfectly in a backpack. i purchased the olive drab color and i like it... instagram @trillionairvisions

                  Pelican #1300 Orange case.

                  By The Teal Guy .

                  from Ocean City, New Jersey.

                  Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Orange):

                  I unfortunatly recently became a typeI 1 diabetic; and needed some moveable, reasonably sized, strong case to store ALL my diabetic supplies in. (Except for the cold storeage of my Levemir pens.) So I purchased this case in Orange [So it wouldn't be easily misplaced, forgotten, or left behind!] to store all my diabetic supplies in: and a small cold pack next to any pens when I'm away traveling for any length of time. Everything fits inside nicely once all the foam blocks were remove: except for the very bottom layer, and the layer in the lid. For the short time I've had it and been using it: it has worked out very well.
                  It is the typical high quality that all my Pelican cases are. I really like the new double throw latches on it.
                  It is defiantly worth the selling price that B&H Photo sells them for! Before the summer of 2015 is over, I even will be purchasing one of the rather new Pelican large coolers in Tan. I recently got a chance to manhandle one. They are on the heavy side. But they are really-really super strong, and they will take a beating! A cooler to last a lifetime for sure! Boy I wish all companies would build, and price their products as well as Pelican does?

                    I do a lot of research before buying gear. When I make a buy, I intend it to last. This is the best insurance policy available. A can of spray plasti dip for the foam after arranging the gear and you have a lifetime investment. Sweet case!

                        I bought this case to store my kayak electronics, Lowrance Elite-5x HDI and Go Pro equipment. These cases are top notch! Crush proof, water proof, can handle extreme temperatures and the foam inserts are perfect for a custom fit. Why store your expensive gear in anything else. I also have a Pelican 1500 I use for my digital camera gear, the case is 12 years old and all the latches still lock the same as the day I bought it. Pelican cases are built for life!
