    Great fit for Steadicam Merlin Vest/Arm... The foam inserts that come with the Steadicam Merlin Vest/Arm upgrade kit fit perfectly into this case... Just wish it was a bit lighter...

        Carry all my photo gear in my Jeep Wrangler in many rough and tight spots in the hills and mountains. Closes water and dust tight. Gear is held in place by foam all around item. Like the two step closing system.

          Comments about iM2600 Storm Case with Foam (Black):

          This is a well-built hard case for photo equipment of all sorts. It is particular good for delicate cameras and lenses that need the best protection available. This case is the largest one with only two latches on the handle side, any bigger would have four latches which is not very handy when you want something in a hurry. Don't discount those few seconds, they matter a lot at the right moment.

                  Love the latches. Better function than Pelican. Lighter than Pelican overall. However, this weight is traded off in that the top lid is not quite as rigid as a Pelican. I think it'll seal, but you can see a gentle arc between the top and bottom lids around the handle. Again, no evidence that it will or has leaked. Just FYI. I think it's worth the trade in weight. I have four of these. Three as motorcycle luggage and one as a case for a $$$$ video camera rig, so I do trust them.

                    I had purchased the iM2200 and was so impressed I bought the larger iM2600. If I was to make one recommendation it would be to buy the foam inserts instead of the dividers but even that is only because I use mine for camera gear and the foam offers more protection. If you're on the fence on this one jump down and go for it you won't be disappointed.

                      I use this product to carry mostly handguns, I can put 6 guns easy in it. Good size case and not
                      to heavy, strong protection to travel on the plane. Protect your gear with 2 locks.

                        This is a really nice case. Compared to the Pelican 1550… it's just a different case. External dimensions are the same, but the Storm gets 1" more storage space inside... AND it's two pounds lighter. The trade-off is the overall "fall off a truck on the highway" toughness you expect from Pelican. I don't know that the sides are any thinner... but you can tell that the case just isn't as BEEFY. It's a bit more refined, yes. And for normal use, it'll be fine I think, but you do lose some rigidity (and weight). Note that the padlock ports on the Pelican 1550 are metal reinforced and on the Storm they're just the same injection plastic as the case. It's great for what it is, but if I had to throw a case into the bay with cameras in it... it would be the Pelican 1550.

                        After investing several thousand in a camcorder, I figured protecting it was well worth what I paid for this case. The case is solid with firmly closing and locking latches and strong, reinforced hinges. The latches can not accidentally pop open. In addition to holding the full size camcorder, I was able to fit a shotgun mike, an LED light, cables, headphones, camera handle, charger and several other small accessories. This makes for a "one bag" trip to most sets. The cubed three layers of foam make for easy customizing of space without any two pieces of gear touching each other. I would have liked to have this in the light gray color of my other Pelican cases. The lighter color does not get so hot when the case is left in a sunny area. The black gets blazing hot, so a shady spot is a necessity here in south Florida.

                              I purchased the iM2600 Stom Case for my son who is an Army Blackhawk Pilot. He uses it to store his personal computer and small electronic gear. He said this case was the perfect size for his application. This is an excellent value. I would highly recommend this case to a friend. There are no cons that I can think of.

                                Comments about iM2600 Storm Case with Foam (Olive Drab):

                                I use the case to store my battery chargers and power supplies that I bring on to location. I own a black case as well, which I use to house my Rycote Windshield kit when not in use.

                                I love the locking clasps! Way better than other cases that use the 'knuckle busters'. Very tough case, and they look great too.

                                I haven't really found anything I dislike off the case.

                                  Got my storm case for storing hard drives in it. Wanted to keep my data safe in the even of a flood. Water tight and a strong case, does the job nicely. The cubed foam was pretty easy to take out the sections needed for my drives.

                                  Hope I don't need another, but if I do I won't hesitate to get another storm case.
