I really like this case. I was able to get a Canon 40D with a Canon EF 24-70mm lens attached in the case plus a Canon EF 100-400mm, a Canon EF 70-200mm, 2 Canon 580 EX II Flashes, a Canon 2X Tele Extender, a Rocket air blower, and a battery charger. I double padded the inside edges for the 2 long lenses and laid them end to end with double padding between the lenses. That used up all 6 small dividers. In the medium side I double padded the inside edge of the case and placed the camera in with lens facing the double padding. At the other end of the medium side I laid the 2 flashes side by side and installed a divider. That left a small area between the camera and the flashes. That's where I put the 2X extender and there is enough room for a 1.4X extender.
I installed 1519 lid organizer (do not over tighten the little screws, there is not much bite in those little screws).
Use the foam from the lid to seperate the lid stuff from the camera stuff and keep it all from moving around. As a carry-on it will be ok. If I have to check it, it's double padded.

While its large enough to carry some stuff. This case is too small to really carry a lot of gear. I got it for a Canon 500mm F4.0 lens. The idea was I'd beat this case up and save the $500 Canon hard case. Well the 500 fits in it and not much else, you can get a 70-200 F2.8IS in it as well as a flash and its full.

If you are NOT carrying it on the airlines, I'd say buy a bigger case.

I can Pelican improved on the latches and they are sort of a 2 step locking thing and they work very well and are much easier to close. Also the TAN color stands out and makes it easier to spot in a sea of BLACK cases.............

I can say its STRONG and well built. I do prefer the dividers to the foam (cube foam flakes off as you use it)

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

    I am always traveling with my gear, and in todays world of airlines that seem to delight in making life miserable for travelers, I would be lost without this case. It does not carry everything I need to pack, but that is a size limitation of the airlines not the case. I go to remote places and sometimes even this case is to big for carry on. I am a lot less anxious about my cameras traveling in the cargo hold when they are in a Pelican case.
    I don't know if it is possible, but a built in TSA lock that can't be cut off would be a nice addiction to this case. I find that TSA agents frequently don't bother to use their keys to open TSA approved locks, they just cut the locks. If a combination lock that could be by-passed with a TSA key was built in, it might help, or maybe not.

          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!

              So happy I bought the one with wheels. It's sturdy, well built. The handle in the back is well designed, not at all flimsy. I would have prefered the dividers to be of an updated design...snap buttons instead of velcro would make things a bit less fussy when trying to create divisions. Overall, excellent product, though I can't vouch for impact resistance (and hope I'll never have to).

              Be carefull when the campany weight limit for cabin bagage is 7kg.

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

              Just about as solid as a case can be and still be portable. The tan color stands out in a crowd (everyone seems to get black) and is easier to find in a group. Latches are solid. I wish the padding on the bottom was a bit thicker. Also, the side wall padding is made in a square and does not account for the wheel wells in the interior corners. However, these are minor nit-picks; overall this is a great case. I use it to store and transport a 500mm f/4 and a 200-400mm f/4 and two bodies. Room for a few small add on items, like a battery or two, but not much else.

                  It's Pelican. Come on. It's perfect. I got the dividers and pack my 5D miii kit in there with ease. Perfect for plane travel. Rugged, durable. Got the Desert Tan color just to easily spot my case from others that are mostly black. I got organizer for the top lid. Not the padded laptop one, the mesh pocket one. it was relatively easy to install. The instructions could have been better. It's a tight angle to get the screws in the corners, but it's not too difficult. You just need a small enough screw driver to get through the mesh holes.

                    I use this case for travel. It fits in the overhead compartment and it is gives me the assurance my gear won't be crushed, squeezed, or mangled when others put their luggage in the overhead.The dividers are adjustable and stay in place and also stick to the bottom and sides of the case.
