This case is PERFECT. Perfect size, great protection, and the ability to securely lock the case up is a plus. Has space for all three of my camera bodies, 4 of my lenses, and even spare room for miscellaneous items like my Xoom Recorder and memory card case. It fits perfectly in the overhead bins whenever I have to fly somewhere. The fact that it allows me to securely lock it with two padlocks is definitely a plus. I'd recommend this product to any photographer out there, especially if you travel a lot!

It's not the most spacious carry-on. Nice outer construction like all Pelican cases. I wasn't impressed with the dividers; they're not very stiff, and when the case is vertical, heavy items will weigh on them. Foam would be a better choice for heavy items. But for lighter items, it's fine.

        Not officially bomb proof.

        By Boyd

        from N. C. USA

        Comments about 1514 Carry On 1510 Case with Dividers (Black):

        Nowhere in the specifications does this case claim to be bomb proof. It is however well sealed against dirt, dust, and moisture. It's ruggedness inspires confidence that my equipment will make it to the job and back home safely. It's easy to customize and fits everything my wife and I need to shoot a wedding. Just remember, while I have not personally tested it, I do not believe this case to be bomb proof.

            Brought this case for my 2 bodies, 5 lenses and 2 Speedlights. I wish I have brought the larger size but I thought this would be big enough for my needs. I may return it and get the next size up. Other than that the construction is excellent and durability is better.

            Perfect for travel

            By Sealy Media

            from Phoenix AZ

            Comments about 1514 Carry On 1510 Case with Dividers (Black):

            Bought the Pelican 1514 with dividers for a recent shoot for which I had to travel. I honestly got more into this case than I thought I would (5d3, 6d, 24-70 f2.8l II, 16-35 f4l, 70-200 f2.8l is II, 2X 600 ex-rts, 2X camera batteries, straps, puffer, lens cleaning kit). No lenses were attached, but for air travel, you wouldn't need them to be. Fit perfectly in the overhead bin - wheels in. I took the rest of my gear (another flash, large lens hood, and extra batteries, etc.) in a separate messenger bag with my laptop. I have travelled with basically the same gear in a Clik Elite Pro Express and have had success, but the straps proved cumbersome and I wished for the hard shell Pelican provides. For me, it's perfect for travel.

            I didn't think I would get all my lenses and camera into the case when it arrived . However they did minus accessories.
            This is a very Tough and we'll made case however when fully loaded is 15kg

              I was so impressed when I opened the case up. This thing looks like it can go through anything and survive. The space inside is nice. I have a lot of trinkets that fill up the add on roof case. This is well worth the $.

                I use this to carry my tech gear to conferences, DSLR, lenses, Jambox and photo printer. the padded divider is nice, you can easily adjust for different gear. Leave a little extra time when bringing on a plane, the nice folks at TSA want to know what is inside a case like this.

                I travel a great deal in my work. Years ago I discovered Pelican cases are the best option for protecting and moving my equipment. I now have a collection of cases that I use to meet different traveling needs. The 1514 is limited in size but is great when you have to travel with a minimum of equipment that you cannot let out of your sight. Wonderful carry-on along with a good padded tripod case.
