This is my fifth Pelican case, and it certainly won't be my last. I bought it for my new video camera rig, and I'm positive it will protect the contents for years to come.My only small complaint is with the two small accessory pouches in the lid. Their horizontal zippers are placed in the center of the pouch, so when the lid is open and you unzip the pouch, small contents tend to spill out on top of the gear in the case. (See images.) I wish the pouches had been designed like those in the 1519 Lid Organizer for the 1510, on which the zippers are placed at the topmost corners.That being said, the 1560SC exceeded my expectations, which is why, in spite of my complaint, I'm still giving it a 5-star review. Granted, it's larger size means you can't use it as a carry-on. But at only $30.00 more than the 1510SC carry-on, and as long as you don't fly or mind checking it when you do, the 1560SC is a great value.

Good kit, very roomy, and solid build. I just really wish they'd make these things a bit deeper, but with the same HxL dimensions. Anyway, not that big of a deal. I'm very happy with using it as an AC kit, or on-man-band DSLR shooter kit.

      Having the tough hard case with the adjustable dividers means you can pretty much fit anything in. I wanted these for travel and storage when I am not using them. Great cases, probably going to get another one too.

          I wish Pelican made this exact same case but deep enough to store a 70-200 on end with the dividers. If it did, it would hold SOOOO much stuff . . . in the meantime this works great and houses much of my photo equipment, safe from spills, and accidents.

            I purchased this product to replace my old tool case for traveling. So far this case has held up well to the abuse of the travel system. I am very happy with this purchase.

                Comments about 1560SC Studio Case (Black):

                I love it, I will carry it for the rest of my life (unless they build hovering ones).
                It look and feel undestructible, it's huge, there is so much options too with all the accessories you may buy to customize it.

                The only negative thing I have to say is that the laptop pouch is a bit too tight for my 17" HP Pavilion but with some efforts, it fit. Also the belt is definitively too short, I would have needed 2-3 more inches to strap it around the laptop.

                Comments about 1560SC Studio Case (Black):

                This will serve me well when travelling. It seems indestructible. The only difficulty I had with it was arranging the dividers to most efficiently take advantage of the space. I ended replacing half the foam padding with pieces from an old back pack that were shorter. This height worked well for most of my gear, and left room for a shallow padded box that holds my Wimberley head sitting neatly on top of them, giving me two layers. This is much more versatile than the big compartments that the stock pads are sized for. After a lot of work customizing the interior, I finally have it made up in a functional layout. It holds my massive 6.5lb. Sigma 150-600 lens in its case (fits perfectly), my DSLR with a large lens attached, two additional lenses, a small point-and-shoot, a flash, a bunch of accessories, and the Wimberley. My Dell XPS 17" laptop JUST fits in the lid case, but I had to take out its bulky battery. I'll take this in the trunk of my car any time I go on the road, and for all air travel.

                This case is "da bomb". I have it packed to the max, super heavy with delicate gear. It delivers. On the road for extended shows and has taken a beating. I'm going to buy a 1510 too. This is my 5th Pelican case and I still use them all. They are simply the best!

                  I use the Pelican 1560SC Studio Case for my audio equipment.
                  Its great design makes all the compartments very organized and easy to set up.
                  Might be a little heavy, if fully loaded, but the hard plastic is really durable and perfectly protects equipment from weather.

                    Purchased this to consolidate all my flashes, modifers, batteries, etc. and I couldn't have picked a better case!

                    Holds Canon 6D backup body, five (5) Canon 600-EX flashes, One (1) Nikon SB-80, Canon E3-RT, five (5) 43" collapsible umbrellas, two (2) Fong Diffusers, Sekonic L-358, extra batteries. Plus lots of misc items in the compartments in the lid insert.

                        The Pelican 1560SC studio case is as sturdy as they come! I bought mine for my Sony FS7 and attachments including Zacuto universal baseplate, Edelkrone FocusPro, lenses, and a lot more. The sections make it an easily customizable case.
                        I only wish the lid were a little bit deeper to fit my laptop which isn't very thin.

                          If you want great protection and configurable storage this is it! Holds a heck of a lot of stuff and I am glad I went with the padded dividers instead of the foam, so I can reconfigure as I need to.

                            Although I do a lot of photo and video work, I also DJ weddings and private events. I decided that I would start using Pelicans for some of my DJ gear since they are so nice for my photo gear.
                            The 1560SC has been perfect for my wireless mics, random accessories and for packing just about everything except the speakers, wires and my decks.

                                The size of this case is perfect. I'm a 5'4" woman and can easily lift this case. Currently it's packed with 3 bees, a vagabond, syncs, reflectors, cords and power strip.

                                  After a long careful consideration of multiple cases, i was able to narrow my picks down to two cases by different companies. Obviously of the two, i chose the pelican, pelican 1560sc to be exact and with uts sturdiness and warrenty etc. I am overly pleased. The wheels roll great, storage is plenty, and it can be carried on (on select airlines) if necessary. I love it and recommend it.

                                  This case is awesome, I'm able to fit everything that I cary to work in one case plus now all my equipment is protected from the elements. The only thing is that it's a little bit heavy.
