    Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Yellow):

    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.

                          Is there anything else to say? It is a Pelican case, exactly what you expect, exactly as advertised, and delivered by B&H exactly when they said it would be. If you are not familiar with Pelican cases, it will be much more than you ever thought it could be!

                          I bought these to keep cameras safe in whitewater kayaks. Mission accomplished!

                                I cary a 5D Mk II body and a 24-105mm lens in this case. I shoot a lot of saltwater fishing and boating pics. This case is perfect in size and can be packed away when space is a premium.

                                  I use it to store very expensive studio mics. The quality of the case, and the thought put into such details as including a vapor vent, incredibly durable latches, water-tight seal, and of course the customizable foam add up to a superior product. Other cases look like this, other brands, but this is by far the best one on the market. This is the second one I bought.

                                    Picked this up for backpacking with my 5dmkII and one single lense. Works great and protects the camera in my bag should I take a spill.
