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.

    My first Pelican with the padded sleeves rather than the foam. Got it for the ever changing digital system. Reliable as always. Good price, quick ship.

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

    5 Stars for the Case. 4 Stars for quality of dividers, but 3 stars for versitility.

    I can not figure out a good way to store body with lens attached. Would be a good case for a large number of lenses.

    I still managed to get body, a few lenses, small tripod, strap, filters, batteries, lens hoods all in case with room for another short zoom or telephoto.

    I considered the 1450, but I'm glad I upsized just a bit.

    Silver color is Gray to my eyes, but I like it. Dividers are black. A black case would probably be better if you plan on using this in an environment where it would get banged up, scraped, etc.

    Happy with the purchase, happy with B and H Shipping and Delivery.

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

      This is a reasonably sized case that fits in my closet – about the size of a business briefcase in width, and about 7 inches deep.

      I used to keep all my lenses and other photo-related gear on the shelves in my walk-in closet, but it didn't take long for the equipment to overwhelm the space.

      It wasn't ideal, nor was it safe for my gear. so that is why I purchased this case, and I'm glad i did.

      Now my gear is in one location that I can move to somewhere else if need be, and I can find quickly.

      The yellow case is easy to see inside a dark closet too - that's why I went w/ the yellow over the black. I knew I'd trip over a dark case eventually as it sits on the floor of my closet, next to a suitcase.

      This Pelican case has very strong, durable snap locks at the handle that ensures it is 100% closed and won't accidentally open.

      And just like most of my camera bags, it has velcro dividers that make it easy to customize to fit the gear (or tools).

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

          I have several Pelican cases in different sizes. The 1500 is the biggest I have. I wanted the adjustable dividers because I want to be able to store my camera with or without lenses. The foam doesn't really give you that option. I want this for my off-road trips on my ATV or in my Jeep. It is pretty much indestructible as far as I can tell. It is bigger than I thought but it will hold all my camera gear and more.

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

              The padded dividers have ruined me for the whole cubed foam thing, for the most part. Very clean and customizable. That said, I use pelican cases mostly for sound gear, as camera stuff I believe should be more dimensionally fitted inside and out. For sound, they're great. I've never had a issue, the 1500 size is perfect for on flight carry on and travel.

              Super Tough

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

              The toughness are waterproof abilities of Pelican products don't need any further explanation and I haven't really tested those qualities yet.

              What I can say is the the dividers aren't really as flexible in their installation as they might have been. Minor problem, but it means that perhaps I am not using the space as efficiently as possible. A lid organizer might have been nice for the small odds and ends stuff as well (I knew it did not come with one).

              Overall it is a great case and will certainly keep my camera, lenses, and flash safe and dry.

                I was headed out on a shoot and I needed a quick fix for the growing lens collection so I took a chance on the velcro dividers.
                They work surprisingly well.
                Problem solved. I may eventually buy a foam block and cut "custom" compartments.
                But I'm waiting to see what lenses I'm using MOST frequently.

                  I bought this box to carry cameras and camera gear on rafting trips. The 1504 with dividers holds my D700 with 70-210 zoom lens attached, a 14mm lens, a 50mm lens, my D3100 with 18-55 attached, and has extra space for either a 55mm macro lens or for miscellaneous stuff like filters and remote cables. Highly customizable Velcro dividers. Haven't tested its bomb proofness and hope not to, but it seems exceptionally well designed and built.

                  I use this case to carry a small video rig. I've only had it for a few weeks, but love it. It holds everything nice and snug ... it's light weight ... and most importantly, everything is protected well. The only negative (and not really a negative) thing to say is I wish there were longer pieces for the divider section. This is a great case that will protect your gear well.

                    I bought the pelican case after almost putting my Nikon in the drink while canoeing. I also camp alot so the case keeps the camera dry, dust free, and protected.

                    The velcro attached partitions allow customization depending on what gear I'm carrying.

                    Great product.
