              Comments about Pelican iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Yellow):

              I am a real fan of these cases. They are the biggest size that can go as carry-on on an airplane. They are very tough, latches work well, nice wheels, extended handle, good pressure valve, proof against water. Good foam, and I am able to carefully cut it to get the shapes that I need for camera equipment. I own three of these now.

                  Comments about Pelican iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Yellow):

                  I use the iM2500 to carry two Nikon bodies accompanied by three 2.8 zoom Nikkon lenses (14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm). The size is just right, the equipment fits snugly and is most adequately protected in its foam bed and hard, thick plastic casing.

                  I chose this particular Pelican because of its perfect size for the job, its carry-on capability, the extended handle and wheels for rolling, and its seemingly excellent protection. I think the price is OK (though I'm sure the markup is not a disaster for the company), and I'd be ready to add the extra star if it lasts forever, as they suggest it would.

                              Comments about Pelican iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Yellow):

                              When I'm traveling, it's become a real pain to carry my gear through airports and train stations. It's just too heavy and I don't find backpacks to be comfortable or convenient. I purchased the Storm Trak Case so that my gear would be well protected and I could wheel it instead of carry it. The cushioning provided by the foam is as good as it gets and the overall quality of the case is excellent. It takes some time to plan out your layout and cut out the foam cubes, but once you get the hang of it, it goes fairly easily. (And if you really screw up, a set of replacement foam won't break the bank) It's so good I'm tempted to check my gear at the airport....I won't, but I'm tempted.

                                The iM2500 is being used as a carrying case for my companies WiFi surveying division. I loved how I was able to custom fit my gear into the case by simply tearing the cubed foam! It's light, easily recognizable by the distinct bright yellow and most of all its durability. I don't have anything to say bad about this product...once we start doing more projects we will be purchasing more of this model! I couldn't be happier!

                                  I use this kit for my 5D MkIII. At the moment my kit is only small, consisting of camera, grip, 24-105mm, 50mm. I also put card reader, chargers, hardrive and light meter in the kit and I have room for a third lens and few other accessories as my kit grows. It's perfect for a medium kit like this. When my kit grows I will upgrade to a divider set to fit more things in!

                                    Comments about Pelican iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Yellow):

                                    This case appears to be tough as nails and the 'pick and pluck' foam is very protective. The only slight negative might be that the foam cubes are more work to remove than I expected but that means that the cubes won't be falling out either. The rollers work very smoothly and both handles are as tough as the case itself.
                                    The size of this case is great for airline carry on being within airline size requirements. (My case width measures 14 inches not 14.1 which puts it within the 22x14x9 size limits.)
                                    Well worth the money.

                                      Comments about Pelican iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Yellow):

                                      After my SUV was broken into (thankfully the thug missed the two nikon bodies behind my drivers seat) I decided I needed to rethink transporting my gear. This case is perfect. I am able to fit two bodies, a wide angle and 70-200 in addition to two strobes and a few accessories in it. IF I need to now leave gear in the vehicle I can tether the case to the bracket of my seat with a bike cable. I decided to replace the foam with the dividers shortly after purchasing it. Bonus: It can be used as a carry on when flying...keeping your gear close by at all times.

                                      As any other pelicans, this is no exception a strong case that you can count on.

                                      And yellow is very eye-catching wherever it goes, you can never miss it.

                                      Although it's a bit heavy, it's a trolley anyway, not a big deal.

                                        For a person like me that travels with equipment frequently. This case is perfect. It fits as carry on but is strong and secure enough to be send with the regular luggage.

                                            Is is my travel companion. It fits in the most aircrafts as a cabin baggage. So the expensive glasses are with me all the time.

                                            And when I have to throw it in my car boot, I do not have to worry much about getting stacked with other cargo.

                                            It is tough enough to take rough handling, but cuddles all my equipment inside. It is dust and water proof.

                                            It can be wheeled away on most walkways at airports and railway platforms, it now saves my back.

                                            An the advantage is, it gives an easy to access to its contents, if I have to gear up for a shoot without notice.

                                            I wish it had a combination lock...

                                                    Comments about Pelican iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Yellow):

                                                    I purchased to meet carry-on standards with flights and, while I haven't used it yet for that, it will hold a lot of gear safely. I also travel on boats and in very inclement weather so I am looking forward to being able to bring my gear with.
