I bought the orange to save [$]. Why not? I'm so glad I bought the case with the dividers instead of the foam. They make it so easy to rearrange your gear and really keep it safe during travel and adventures. I actually like the bright orange for the reason that if I ever were to get stranded it could be a benefit, as well as through woods with hunters.

The rugged #1500 pelican case is just what I was looking for to either store my extra lens, or configure for my collection of GO PRO camera and attachments. I first tried to configure the case for the GO PRO. Over and over again I move the divider set, no luck, the set consist of just two sizes, no half lengths, no third lengths. It is a great divider set if you want to move a dozen eggs. OK I will use it for my lens collection, same problem. The divider set proved to be useless in both scenarios. My answer to the problem is to buy the pick and pluck foam set. Unfortunately that Is sold separately adding to my over all cost.

    These Pelican cases just keep on working. They're strong and easy to use, that's why I've just ordered my fourth one! Delivery from B&H is quick and free. They always have what I want in-stock!

          Comments about 1504 Waterproof 1500 Case with Padded Black Dividers (Black):

          I bought this case based on my previous experience with Pelican cases. They are not feather light but can take a lot of abuse. Any time I need to transport some fragile stuff, this is my choice. The only thing I wish for is that the small padded dividers were a mix of two sizes to accommodate larger items. There is always an option to stick two together but it is not as neat. Otherwise I cannot imaging any possible improvement. Two thumbs up.

          I fit all 3 of my HD camcordees , mics, lense and accessories fine. The dividers were easily customizable for my needs. I feel like dropping it off the roof but I won't. LOL.

          Comments about 1504 Waterproof 1500 Case with Padded Black Dividers (Black):

          This is a great case. Very durable and compact but a little heavy. It is smaller than what it looks like in the picture so be careful. I was still able to fit my D700, accessories, 2 lenses, headphones, shotgun mic, flash, and even a small shoulder mount, although it took a fair bit of manuevering. Great product.

          Comments about 1504 Waterproof 1500 Case with Padded Black Dividers (Black):

          Perfect size case for my Nikon D7100, 4 lenses, hoods, ipad, extra gear, and still room to expand. Bought this so I can travel (fly) without concern my gear will get kicked around or squashed. This case meets the measurements to go on board aircraft as well. no way I'm checking my camera with stowed luggage!! I'm a pretty big guy, and I'll admit this case gets heavy to carry around for too long, but I am willing to deal with it to ensure my stuff is safe. Love it!!

            Comments about 1504 Waterproof 1500 Case with Padded Black Dividers (Black):

            This case protects my sensitive photo gear. Dividers are reconfigurable. A few things have changed since my last Pelican case of about 10 years, ago. Metal loops outside of latches for lock(s). Hinges seem stiffer with an indent to keep lid in open position. Inside lid (behind foam) are some structural small protrusions. I'm guessing to keep foam from moving and to add structural integrity to corners of lid. Without these in my older Pelican case, I'm able to place larger flat objects (paper, filters, etc.) between foam and lid. As usual, Pelican cases are the best. Kinda wish the dividers came in gray, like my older Pelican case dividers.

                Pelican has really the top of the line!! I can arrange and the rearrange the dividers to fit the lenses I plan to carry on a particular trip. Whether a IS telephoto for game shots or a super wide-angle for Wyoming scenery, everything is where it belongs.

                    This case is one tough cookie. A tad heavy, which lets you know you've got something solid. I use it to house my D700, four lenses, SB800 flash, extra batteries, etc. The dividers are adjustable for sizing various length/width lenses or other items you might want to store. I considered a larger size but wanted something a bit more manageable. I'm glad I got this unit as it serves for what I needed. I also have the Pelican 1614 which (has wheels and tow handle) which I use should I need all my equipment along, but it is a bit big for my everyday needs.

                          Excellent - fits enough of my lenses for almost any trip. It also fits a 5d mk ii pretty well, but I might get the next size up if you want the foam to be less squished on top. The velcro dividers are very high quality.

                          My only problem is B&H's packaging of this product. It's an unbreakable case -- you don't need a million peanuts.

                                  Comments about 1504 Waterproof 1500 Case with Padded Black Dividers (Olive Drab Green):

                                  Some months ago I decided to take off my lenses from a cabinet to a transportable storage. I went to Pelican 1504.

                                  I have eleven SLR lenses, including Nikkor 80-400 and Nikkor 135 f/2 DC and all of them fit into it as a glove! Additionally this case gave me a peace of mind: there are just a very few real situations where the integrity of its contents could be threated.

                                  I just bought a second 1504 to my cameras and flashes.
