    the best

    Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Yellow):

    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!

        Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Olive Drab):

        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!

            I've had this case for about a year and use it to store my camera while kayaking. Though I've thrown it in the water to test it, it recently got the ultimate test on a local river. It definitely does its job well!!

                  This product was used to store our Ki Pro and so far it's doing just that. Able to take a beating and held everything together when traveling. I have no complaints about this product (so far). I highly suggest this product if you're looking for a case that can protect your small fragile items.

                    Strong, heavy duty. I say light-weight because it is small compared to the other pelicans I have. Great case.

                    I use it to store my Lowel Pro Light and accessories.

                        Holds a D800 and mounted lens- either my 25mm Distagon and a Nikor 105. Goes one direction with the one lens and the other with the other. I have not used the pick foam because I wanted to keep the arrangement adjustable. So I lined it with some thiner foam. I use it while canoing/lanscapes. The case is ridgid and well made, is NOT light weight- but then neither is my camera. The camera is just high enough to jam into the top and bottom foam and keep everything from rattling around. I'd be careful storing equipment with this closed without desicant.

                          I purchased this case to transport my Olympus E-M5 and 75-300mm lens while I'm kayaking. I'm able to load the case onto the kayak and travel between shooting spots on the water without worrying about the gear getting wet or damaged. The case is very well built and seems very secure. The foam insert was easy to adjust to the sized spaces I needed and I'm confident that the case would protect the gear against minor drops, etc. Not sure that I'd submerge it, but if it ever fell overboard while latched, I'm certain that the camera would survive.

                                Flycase Pelican is just a pure happiness for their reliability and their robustness. I use it for tramsporter a head of camera, on ground as on sea.
