    Like all true Pelican cases (NOT Storm cases) the quality and fit are excellent. I have many true Pelicans and I am very satisfied with them all.

        We use this case for a projector. This gets shipped on flights, mailed, carried, etc. As you may know they a fragile so protection is the most important standard. This case will provide you with the confidence to protect the most fragile equipment

          THIS IS THE BEST CASE. I USE IT TO CARRY AND PROTECT MY GLOCK 45 AND MY SMITH & WESSON 1911 45 PISTALS. I LIKE THAT THE CASE IS AIR TIGHT AND WATER TIGHT AND DUST PROOF. ALSO THE PRICE WAS GREAT FOR WHAT YOU GET.
          THERE IS NOT ONE THING BAD I CAN SAY ABOUT THE 1500 PELICAN CASE. WILL BUY MORE SOON FOR MY CAMERAS.

            Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Black):

            Best cases around, durable, waterproof, solid, beautiful. Everything should be in a pelican case, I think I might start carrying my lunch in one.

            If you get one with foam, just plan ahead before you start tearing it out or you'll end up with an ugly less functioning inside.

                Had my pelican case with DSLR in a kayak pinned in a Class V rapid for over 24 hours - not a drop of water got in and the camera was good as new. These are the best protective cases you can buy.

                The box is kinda heavy - but that's kinda the point. It's tough.

                I was looking for a case to keep my gear safe in a very full car trunk as we travel. This does the trick. No problem holding my D7000, its lens, a large telephoto, a macro and my flash. Very satisfied.

                  Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Black):

                  Just for background, I am an electrical engineer. I bought this case to put my multimeters, pliers, tweezers, test leads, screwdrivers, etc. I plan on working in the field and in the lab.

                  This case is the perfect size. It is not too big nor too small. It fits all of my tools perfectly. I love the pick and pluck foam that allows customization.

                  Also, another reason I bought it is for the reinforced padlock slot. Most other cases have a flimsy place to lock your case, why bother? I cannot find anything wrong with this case.

                  I totally recommend this case to anyone and everyone!

                    We are video company and will only use Pelican cases. They have a size to fit any of your needs. We use this one to hold our encoders nice and snug with the easy to form break-away foam. the only con I can think of is everyone uses them so you have to figure out a way to differentiate them.

                        We are using this case for our Matterport camera and WOW. The box it came in just doesn't hold up so we were looking for something that would protect our camera, but still be convenient to carry and this case is perfect for that. Hard shell with foam lining makes it durable and safe, but it isn't extremely clunky and big like other cases. GREAT product!

                            Being in the market for a durable and waterproof case to take my camera and lenses on adventures, I found very little information on what people put in there cases and what size to order.

                            The 1500 is exactly what I wanted! It is the perfect size for my DSLR attached to a 70-200 and room for my 24-70 and then some. Being about the width of a briefcase and the height of two stacked it is worth the little room it takes up.

                              Our company has been using pelican cases for years. They are a reliable durable product. We use it for camera equipment, and the cases get used by multiple people and the cases get quite the beating. Everything still manages to stay in its place and we have never had an issue with our cameras falling out or breaking.

                              Case is tough and well built. It is big enough to house all my FPV equipment which includes a 8" monitor. It would actually contain a much larger monitor. This is my new ground station.
