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.

        We wanted to make sure the department cameras and all the extras were safe from college life while checked out by department students. The case is light-weight, holds the camera plus all its extra parts well, and resists liquids.

          Ultimate protection for the gear and much more valuable peace of mind. Another product that works as advertised. Waterproof and almost indestructible. We were forced to test its limits and discovered that the content was untouched by the abuse the case took.

            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.

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 not the first pelican case that I had. So far these cases still have to fail me.

                                          Simply put a GREAT case for protecting valuable equipment. Doesn't get better.

                                          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!
