    Comments about iM2450 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

    Its a pelican, smooth on the outside and padded on the in. The dividers work well and its great for lenses and you can pack it tight. If you need a hard case that is portable with durable lock holes to secure your expensive equipment, even firearms, money, computer equip, etc. this is the case to use. The dividers are a true added value.

      This is the 5th Pelican case I've purchased from B&H. What can I say? They're simply the best for protecting and transporting equipment. I bought this one for my flash units. Shipping was fast and free from B&H.

        Comments about iM2450 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

        This is the perfect case for keeping the essentials at hand on the go. I am able to keep my Nikon D800, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, 50mm, 1.7 teleconverter, grip, light meter, 3 batteries, chargers, and the list goes on all in this case. The locks give me a little peace of mind when I leave it sitting near by but can't always have eyes on. Yes they can grab the whole case but less likely than putting a $ light meter in their pocket quick and walking away.

          Comments about iM2450 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

          I own several Pelican cases including the 1650 and 1510. I would only trust my equipment in Pelican cases for travel and transport. However, I just bought my first Pelican Storm Case, im2450. The latches are superb and very smooth to operate. I use this case as a top case on my motorcycle. Although I use this case for so many things, the main purpose is to secure my camera equipment to and from photography sessions when I am able to use my motorcycle as the mode of transportation. i.e. windmills, desert shots and mountainous terrain. I absolutely love this case. Five Stars for sure. But I will give it four stars on B&H so you read my review. I hardly ever read the 5 star reviews because I want to see so-so issues. No such issues for this case.

            Comments about iM2450 Storm Case with Padded Dividers (Black):

            This is a great case for storing and transporting equipment. It is deep, so lenses can be stored vertically and tons of stuff fits in it. At first I looked at it and thought "It looks too small. No way all my lenses will fit in it". I was wrong. I have EIGHT lenses from 40mm/2.8 to 70-200/2.8, a camera, a couple flashes and some accessories in my box. Quality of box and materials is outstanding. Looks like this box will outlive me.

              Transported two cameras bodies, two lenses, flash, battery charger, spare batteries, and two rain covers and still had extra room. TSA approved as carry on bag aboard aircraft. Felt confident in transporting equipment to the Caribbean for multiple photo shoots. Wouldn't trust any other case. Highly recommend Pelican Cases.

                Exterior dimensions are about 1-3 inches under the carry-on luggage rules for flying, depending on airline. My contents = Canon 5D mkii, 70-200mm zoom, 24-105 zoom, 580EX flash, filters (Cokin system), spare batts & cards plus cleaning gear. Dividers allow for all sorts of useful combinations of pockets. All comes to exactly 10kg, which is also the carry-on limit for many airlines. Highly recommended. B&H price is around half the local price too.

                  Loved this case from day 1. Needed to protect my 7D with various lens and things and this case was the right call. Holds plenty of equipment and the padded dividers are a great way in keeping your gear protected. Little heavy but its worth the protection.

                      This case is the perfect size for my Canon 7D and Speedlite Flash, filters pack,Lens blower brush, cleaner wipes, filter wrenches, tele-extender, and 6 'L' lenses. Perfectly sized for carry-on while flying, or to take in the car or camper when traveling on wheels. Easy to open. The dividers work well and offer great flexibility. The latches work easily but are very secure and the case won't accidentally open while being carried. This is the same type case I have for traveling with my firearms, and both seem practically indestructible, uncrushable, airtighht, watertight, and I could drop this out a second story window and my gear would be protected! For about $20,000 worth of camera and glass, I couldn't ask for anything more.

                        I got this case for my Sony VX-2100 after having it repaired. I had damaged it by using an improper case. This case is hard-core and doesn't play around. Creating the cut-out's is a snap and fun to do. The case is light and I don't worry about protection any more. Having this case before would've saved me [$] in repairs.

                        I use this case to store cameras and lenses so that they are ready to immediately throw in the truck for photo excursions. Naturally, to be protective, there is some bulk, as with any good case. This particular case had sufficient internal height so I am able to store my 1DsMk3 upright with lens and quick disconnect attached. Other cases which had this height were much larger and too bulky. This case fit my needs perfectly. It is of solid construction with secure latches and ample internal padding.
