    Comments about iM2200 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Yellow):

    One of these with the padded dividers will hold two Fuji X-T1 cameras with vertical grips and the 10-24mm, 14mm, 18-55mm, 23mm, 35mm, 56mm and 55-200mm lenses. I also use another iM2200 for a 645z body and 4 Hasselblad lenses with a lens adapter.

    The padded dividers are great. I used to buy the foam insert versions of these cases because they were cheaper and offered a sense of greater protection, but I find that I can get a lot more gear in the case with padded dividers and there is still plenty of padding to protect the equipment. They fit enough gear that I can keep the core of my various kits close to me while I travel.

    The case is a little bit shorter than I might like. It's a tight fit with the X-T1 and vertical grip, but that's the only (tiny) complaint I have about these cases. They're awesome, especially with the padded dividers. The yellow is super visible without being obnoxious but classic black is great as well. I usually apply some glow in the dark tape or reflective tape to the outside of my pelican cases to help with visibility in low light. Can't tell you how many time I've tripped over these in the dark.

    Perfect on the go size

    By EMS220

    Comments about iM2200 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

    This is my 2nd Pellican case. The other holds 2 FF bodies with grips, 2 flashes and 10 lenses including a 70-200 F2.8. But it is very big, heavy and cumbersome for many situations. This new one is a perfect daily companion. Big enough for a FF without grip, 2 small lenses and 1 big or 4-5 smaller lenses. Very tough and is easy to take anywhere. The new latches are great. This case allows me enough space to bring enough lenses to suit most unplanned shooting needs. I have no concerns with putting the pelican case in the bed of my 3/4 ton 4x4 and going anywhere in any weather.

      Comments about iM2200 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

      The latches have been improved compared to the older cases. The size is good for running off to outdoor shoots. I really had to take some time to figure out the right configuration for lenses and filters. It _almost_ allows you to load a 6.5" lens in an upright position, but I'm hesitant to do that because the foam in the lid is compressed a bit more than I am comfortable with. Other than that, I highly endorse this case.

          The external of this case is superb. Gave it 4 stars because the padded liners seemed like they weren't going to take more than a few un-installs before ripping.

          Like all the cases Pelican makes, the iM2200 is top notch. I always buy Pelican because I know the cases will last longer than I will. I use the case for a set of vintage lenses and the padded divider works perfectly. There is NOTHING I would change about this case.

          Comments about iM2200 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

          I'm not much for giving anything 5 stars as nothing is perfect but I must say this case is as close to perfection as anything I own. I would highly recommend this case for storing or transporting anything of value. I use it for transporting and storing my camera gear and I love it.

          Great Case

          Comments about iM2200 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

          This is a great case. I got it for my Nikon d5100 digital camera. I have one zoom lens, a flash, all the cords and a battery charger. Everything fits in it with room to spare. The case it a bit awkward to carry around, I have a back pack case for that, but it is going to be great when traveling on the plain and for leaving the camera in the car.

          I am a big fan of Pelican products and normally I stick with there traditional cases but I decided to try out this Strom Case to see how I like the easy latches. They are definitely easier to open and close. One thing I do find a little awkward is how the case opens. Even when loaded with all the gear the easy latches require a stiff push on the button to open. So I have to hold the case down with one hand and operate the latch with the other. So unless I push the case against the wall I can't open both latches at once. It's less then idea but not a big complaint.

          Also the padded divider kit that I received with the case wasn't as pictured. I received one with many more small dividers and two full dividers that span the case lengthwise. I dont' see it as problem but simply information missing from the description.

            the storm hard carrying case is a good protection for many things .
            the one future that is noticeable is the easy opening . it is not to heavy
            and it is not to light . it is durable and should last a long time .
            storm offers an all variety of cases in different sizes for multiple uses .
            storm cases is a product for cases .
