    These cases are great for spotting scopes and leave some extra room for accessories. Have had a high end spotter in a case bouncing around my truck daily on dirt roads and everything inside is just fine!

        Each time that I purchase a new PELICAN product, I fell a new sence of safety for my gear. My latest piece will keep my Astro cameras in good shape for years. I know the will wear out from general use before the case stops protecting them.

        Thank You PELICAN!
        I am a big fan.

                  I bought this case to put together a portable equipment package to be used on dredges and boats. the case offers great protection and the foam was easy to cut for a great fit of all of the components. And as a bonus, if it is dropped overboard the case water tight and floats with all of equipment in it.

                  Comments about 1520 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

                  I have 4 of these Pelican cases plus a very old Curzer, a very old 1470 and a small case for an O2 sensor. This tan one has been configured to hold 3 LED studio lights.

                  With careful work the foam inserts can be tailored to hold your equipment safely when the cases are handled roughly. More traditional inserts, similar to the dividers in a camera case, are also available or can be easily created with some closed-cell foam, ripstop nylon and Velcro strips.

                  The cases are tough, close securely and can be locked with padlocks. If a case needs to be repurposed a new foam insert can be purchased and configured to hold the new equipment ...without the need to purchase a new case.

                  The only reason I would purchase a different brand is if Pelican didn't make a suitable size for the equipment, which is not likely given the range of sizes Pelican makes.

                      Want an amazing case that will protect your stuff, keep it safe, and can be customized to suit your needs? Then buy this case. Need a bigger or smaller case? Then buy a different model from Pelican. These are the best cases around. I've used them for years and they have far surpassed my initial expectations. I've been rough on mine and they just keep on providing amazing protection. Pelican cases are the only cases I will purchase for my equipment. If you want to get amazing customer service when buying your case then contact B&H. Real professionals.

                        Pelican cases are among the best in the world, and come with a lifetime warranty. I have over a dozen cases and ship them all over the US. The are durable and reliable. And yes, I've had to clam that warranty once - with quick and easy success. The company is great and has so many products it is really hard to decided on sizes. This case is used for GoPro equipment, and another case is used to put together a Veydra prime lens kit. The depth allows for most micro 4/3 primes to fit with protection, and the size of case is perfect to carry.

                          This was a wonderful upgrade from the soft case I had been using. It's a wonderful feeling knowing that my gear is not only Protected from the elements but encased in foam to protect it from impacts.

                            I bought this case to safely store my DSLR, lenses and my Go Pro. The pick and pluck foam was extremely easy to work with to get a custom fit for all my gear. I watched a couple of you tube videos and picked up some tips on layout and planning and it turned out great. B&H shipped immediately and the case arrived on schedule. If you're thinking about a pelican product my advice is to go for it you won't be disappointed.

                                It fits our FARO laser scanner great and allows us to carry it on the plane instead of checking it.

                                  These cases are simply the best you can get for the money. If your gear fits, it will protect it from just about anything. Buy some, you won't regret it!
