    I use this case to house my ColorMunki Photo calibration equipment. I didn't use the pick and pluck foam tho, I'm using Trekpak division system for a neater look. I'm not sure if I trust this case to offer the same protection as the bigger models because the fitting isn't right. Both cases have a curved top lip that doesn't quite meet the bottom half of the case so you can see the inner black weather sealing and that makes me nervous. Also the locks are very thin and is a bit painful to wedge a finger in to pry them open even with the smallest of hands. All and all I'm happy with them, they do their job and look great too.

    I use this small case to store and transport several USB2.0 VGA Video Cards and VGA Cat5 Extenders.
    This case is great for storing or transporting small electronics.
    The latches seem to be a little on the weak side, but seems to hold the lid on tight enough to close and make the seal.
    I would purchase this case again.

      Comments about 1150 Case with Foam (Blue):

      This is a very useful little case. I have fitted it for 4 Pocket Wizard Transceivers. I always buy Pelican when I need a durable, sealed case to protect my gear. The blue color is actually kind of cool and helps me spot my transceivers amongst a pile of black cases.

          Comments about 1150 Case with Foam (Black):

          I use this for my A6000 with kit lenses. I have a larger case for the primes, etc, but when I want the 16-50 and 55-210, this makes them bulletproof. Works perfectly and fits in a small backpack. The opening and closing is a little less comfortable, but normal for this size Pelican.

            Comments about 1150 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

            Brilliant just what I am used to from Pelican. I would say that maybe the seal isn't as tight as it should be (tighter in the corners), however I doubt this affects the seal and I am not taking these under water (well not planning on it...)

            Comments about 1150 Case with Foam (Yellow):

            This case is fantastic. Right out of the box, you notice the great build quality. The pluck foam, with a razor blade, makes it a breeze to have a solid custom travel case. The price was the best I found, and shipping was on point.

              fits my small canon camcorder, an extra battery, power cord, and lavalier mic.

              My 2nd one fits a wireless lavalier setup. Pretty handy.

              Tip, get a bright color so you don't miss it.

              The best case you can buy hands down!! I will never buy any other case other than a pelican. Fits everything that I needed it to. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a case this size

                    The case is really strong while having plenty of foam to protect your valuables. Used mine for GoPro Hero 3 and accessories and it works amazing. Waterproof, shock proof (feel like I can throw it off a roof), and a cheap price. Will definitely buy some more for my other valuables that can use some extra protection from the elements.

                      Have used their cases for years and never had a problem.
                      Strong and does exactly what is required to do.

                      Film crews, production houses and the BBC can't all be wrong - they all use Pelican!

                        I bought this to replace a soft case for the Sennheiser Wireless G3 Lav set. It's got plenty of room for my one mic kit. has room for my body pack, and receiver, and handheld mic transmitter. This case actually survived a drop down a 16 step staircase, and the mic's inside were perfectly fine. Had the mics been in the original softcase, I'd be replacing a $800 wireless set. It's already covered it's own value!

                          I bought this to carry my GoPro system. The gopro has a lot of mounts and accessories that I use on a continual basis so having them all in one place is essential. This case is perfect to fit everything in one place .. convientiently!
                          It is durable and really nice size.

                            I use this case to house my ColorMunki Photo calibration equipment. I didn't use the pick and pluck foam tho, I'm using Trekpak division system for a neater look. I'm not sure if I trust this case to offer the same protection as the bigger models because the fitting isn't right. Both cases have a curved top lip that doesn't quite meet the bottom half of the case so you can see the inner black weather sealing and that makes me nervous. Also the locks are very thin and is a bit painful to wedge a finger in to pry them open even with the smallest of hands. All and all I'm happy with them, they do their job and look great too.

                              worked great for my go-pro hero2 camera, and a lot of extra accessories.
