    Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Olive Drab Green):

    Pelican Cases are by far the best product in the market when you need to protect something whether electrical/radio, scopes/lens, firearms, anything breakable from damage due to tavel, shock, or water. This unit is one of the latest used to protect an expensive field scope, tripod, etc., assembly from all elements.
    The miiltary uses them, so you know they are just outstanding.

          Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Silver):

          I use the case to store and carry prototype hardware so I can keep it as secure as possible. Looks professional, very rugged. I enjoyed the pre-cut interior foam, which made it really easy to snugly fit the items I needed to carry. Though the pre-cut foam makes for a good approximate fit, I couldn't specifically contour the foam the way I'd hoped to.

          Overall, I'm super satisfied with the purchase, and wish I had more things to carry so I could have a reason to buy more. Kinda weird, I know.

              I have recently used the case to ship my camera equipment cross country. It arrived safely and the case indeed provides that extra level of protection we all need for such valuable property. The foam was easy to customize, much easier than I thought it would be. Latches are also great.

                      What can i say. Its a pelican. Its durable, waterproof, dust proof. I got the foam insert because im using it for a set amount of gear that doesn't change. The pluck and pull foam worked great. If you are using it for gear that might change over time don't get the foam, get the padded dividers. I got tan to distinguish it from other pelican cases i bring on shoots. It looks nice.

                          Recently bought a pontoon boat and plan to use it as a platform for photography, among other things. Knowing my klutzy-ness, I knew I needed to protect those lenses! The 1500 case fit the equipment I plan to use and it was easy to customize for my equipment. It looks and feels like it will protect as advertized, but I am glad to say I haven't put it to the test yet!

                                  I use these cases to transport laptops, cameras, and other equipment on boats. They are watertight and can handle nearly any rough treatment you put them through.

                                      These cases are used to simplify the accounting and transport of our wide angle lenses from mobile unit to mobile unit and between shows. We keep all lenses not attached to cameras in hard cases and our hand held lenses fit best in this Pelican. We buy from B&H for Price, Quality of Products, timely order shipment and excellent service.

                                                  I teach Industrial Pressure Relief Valve Maintenance Repair Seminars for NASA Locations, Nuclear Stations, Oil Refineries and National Board Certified Repair Shops. I use the cases to transport the different training aids that are necessary to support the various training modules. The sales are the proper size, lightweight, but durable, with foam inserts. I have used this type case for 25 years. I highly recommend them.

                                                    I was scouting around for the smallest case that would fit my Rokinon primes snuggly without crushing them. This case currently houses my Samyang Rokinon 24, 35, 50, and 85 and I plan on adding a 16. I have to lay my 35 vertically but the spacing is generous and Pelican is of course superbly reliable. Love my casee and very happy with my purchase.
