I originally tried the Pelican 1200 case to house my GoPro camera plus accessories with no luck. The 1400 was my solution with some room to grow! I have bought Pelican cases in the past and will continue to do so in the future as they are a well made USA product made to house our important products!

I bought this case for my Nikon D7000 and I really wish it was a tad larger and the foam inside had two levels for customizing the inside. The worst thing about this case is that the latches are difficult to work. Otherwise, it does its job well. I just have some personal preferences that this product doesn't meet.

    Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Orange):

    I own several Pelican cases and flashlights. Great products! I bought the Pelican 1400 with the pick n pluck foam specifically for my audio gear. It perfeclty holds my Zoom H5N plus wireless transmitter/receiver set with a couple Lavalier mics., 9 volt, AA & AAA batteries. The only downfall was due to my fault. I can't fit my shotgun mic. as I used the exterior measurements of the case and misjudged the size.

      Used to ship a DCP on a CRU drive to venues. A solid case—waterproof, durable. Simply zip tie it shut, attach a label, and off it goes. The bright orange color helps it stand out.

              Very well made, rugged, waterproof case that is guaranteed for life. What more can you ask of a case? I use it as a pistol case and this size will hold two full size pistols. It has two reinforced padlock locking points. The pick and pluck foam allows one to customize the interior configuration easily to whatever will fit inside.

                use it to protect my tamaron 150-600mm lens. should have picked a little larger as it is a tight fit. The case itself is great and is everything advertised.

                        This is the second Pelican box I have purchased. Both are strong, waterproof and will take abuse and the contents are always safe. Took the 1500 down the Colorado thru the Grand Canyon. It was soaked daily and I never had a problem with my camera gear.

                          This is the third Pelican I own A 1560 hard case, and a PCS152 for camera equipment. The 1400 Orange will be used for a marine first case. I chose this hard cases for there rugged construction. I believe any one who purchases any for the Pelican cases will be well satisfied.

                            I bought this 1400 Case with Foam (Black) by Pelican to carry and protect my Delvcam 7" monitor and accessories. It holds the monitor, the A/C adaptor, the camera-top mount, 3 batteries (1 on the monitor) and the HDMI cable. As you can see from the photo, it could hold more accessories if it had to. I was concerned that I might have trouble with the foam inserts and not be able to customize the case the way I wanted, but the cut "cube" design of the foam made it easy. I just used a kitchen knife and was careful to lay out everything ahead of time, so I had no mistakes. I also love the fact that Pelican has the metal protectors on the lock rings which are perfect for TSA approved locks.

                                  This is now my second Pelican 1400 case! It's the perfect size for me! The first case I bought stores my Canon 60d, 70-200mm lens, and still has enough room to store 2 extra batteries, battery charger, and SD cards. My new Pelican 1400 has my 6d and 24-105 lens with plenty of room left over for more! Top quality product!

                                    I've been carrying my hard drive in my backpack until I drop it the other day. Luckily, it survived, but I realized how it makes no sense not to properly protect it with a hard case. I've no doubts it's safe inside the pelican case. Loved the orange.

                                              Pelican is my first choice when it comes to protecting precious gear during travel.

                                                The case is the standard high quality that you expect from Pelican. Using this model to store three 1800W HMI bulbs. I enjoy its ease of use and reliability.

                                                  I love this size case, it fits my DSLR, 3 lenses, filters, spare battery and charger, all in a sturdy protective swaddle.

                                                    Quality:
                                                    I made this purchase based on currently owning four other Pelican products. Their quality is superb and you "get" exactly what they "advertise". Pelican leaves no opportunity for customer disatisfaction. It is simply a superior product in the industry. I bought the 1400 for my Desert Eagle. It fits perfectly along with two magazines.

                                                    Service:
                                                    I defy anyone to beat the services at B&H. Every purchase I have made has shipped that afternoon or the next morning if ordered at night. They should offer a price rebate ... nobody beats the deals I have received from B&H.
