Bought to travel lenses

By Mike

Comments about iM2100 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

But not the right box for rokinon lenses. Then the next week they announced pelican air boxes. I might return this box and get a larger lighter one.

Comments about iM2100 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

Thought this would be an upgrade for the standard Pelican 1400 - liked the new latches, and the divider layout. So, I was SUPER disappointed to learn that the case is not as bulletproof as the standard Pelican case. This is great for water and crush protection, but if you're dealing with high end lenses, then dust is your enemy. So, I had to return this case, and get a standard Pelican case. I wish they would have made this more clear, and I hope this helps someone else avoid the return shipping.

  • Field Transport

Comments about iM2100 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

I am very happy with my purchase of this case. It holds my Sony Nex7, a portrait lens, a wide angle lens, a telephoto lens and several filters/accessories.
I have used Pelican cases for field work, with extremely expensive equipment, and they hold up great to the elements and abuse. But I find the clasps very difficult to open some models. So for my own gear, I like the easy open clasps, as on this model. Also the price was very reasonable, and I was hard pressed to find anything else comparable (when including shipping fees).

The only small complaint I have is that there is no organizer for the top (available on other models). It would be great to have a better location for filters and all the smaller gear (lens cleaning ect..). I have cut a few slots into the back side of the foam for a few filters, and will likely add a few more for some additional storage (see photo). Otherwise, I have no complaint.

    Comments about iM2100 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Yellow):

    If there's ever a zombie apocalypse, I want pelican cases between me and any approaching danger. These things are extremely tough. They don't break, they don't leak, they don't crush. Treat them like your ex treated you. They can take it. If you have something expensive and/or breakable, the best place for is in one of these.

    The only negative is that they tend to be very heavy. Make sure you are cool with the weight of the case and what you plan to put in it. A big Pelican full of gear can be HEAVY. All of my bigger Pelican cases have wheels.

    I love the case, the latches are a dream to use compared to Pelicans and are very quiet. The only downside is the weight, but it comes along with the protection level.
