Design features include gasket sealing that makes the case dust and waterproof, a molded-in hinge for added strength, seven stainless steel reinforced padlock holes, and six trigger release latches arrayed around the case on three sides that seal the interior tight. The case is further resistant to a variety of hazards that you may encounter such as impacts, ultraviolet (UV) radiation, solvents, corrosion, and even fungi. A pressure relief valve comes into play especially during air transport by regulating the internal pressure, keeping your gear and the case from getting crushed and allowing you to open the case without having to break a tough pressurized seal that may develop.

Very Happy Overall

By Marcel

This is a great case and I think it's worth the money. It's well built and seems quite sturdy. It's not as sturdy as my Pelican 1510, but I think that's because of the sheer size of this thing. It's so big that it's bound to feel a little more flexible than the much smaller 1510. But I've already tested it by standing on it, sitting on it and even jumping up and down on it a bit. It held up perfectly and I weigh around 240lbs! So I'm not worried about it's toughness in the least. My only complaint is about the selection of dividers. The one long divider is fine, but they should have included a wider selection of the short dividers. The included selection limits you quite a bit. They should have also done a much better job of securing the divider unit to the shell. It's only attached by a couple little pieces of velcro on the hinged side of the case. There are no attachment points anywhere else. This causes the divider unit to sag when loaded up and standing.

So far so good

This case is a stronghold for your gear. I have 3 light stands, one which is a boom, an Explorer 600, AD200 3 speedlights, 2 umbrellas, 2 softboxes and it still can hold more gear. I havent traveled with it yet but I will in March. But so far so good.

Best case and customer service

One of the best hard cases I ever had

I have a dozen different pelican and similar cases for gear. I bought this one for my LED fresnel lights and pretty happy with the purchase. It's perfect for that propose. Sturdy, really good build quality and tons of dividers (thanks Think Tank). I'm going to buy one more to use it for a couple C-Stands (30" fits perfectly), light stands, grip and modifiers. My only wish for this case is to be a bit wider (maybe 5 inches) so I could fit longer pieces not only horizontally but vertically too.

Better than expected!

I haven't had the best experience with SKB cases in the past but I have to say, this one did great. It survived TSA while weighing in at 65lbs with stands and blankets.

Sturdy case, well designed.

Great product. Easy to configure. SKB makes cases which are relatively light for hard cases. This is a perfect lighting case. Just be aware that because of the size, if you load this up, you're probably going to be over 50 lbs. Because it's wheeled, that's pretty manageable.

Great flexibility for our mobile recording setup

This case offers amazing flexibility to configure just the right set up for our mobile recording equipment. We went from 6 packs to one sturdy and functional case!

This is a great case! Perfectly fits my needs and holds everything for location shooting. Its definitely a big case but the wheels and handles make it easy to transport. SKB makes a great product and the Think Tank dividers are sturdy and hold in place well.

Will an Aputure Nova & 600X Pro fit in this case along with impact heavy duty light stands in the dedicated cubby?
Asked by: BAIRN
The dividers in the SKB i3i-Series 4213-12 Wheeled Waterproof Utility Case are adjustable, so you could fit the Aputure 600X Pro and an Impact heavy-duty light stand in the case.

It says "Layered Foam" does this mean it has multiple layers of the foam - and if so how thick is each layer - or is it just one piece?
Asked by: Mystic
Yes the layered foam on the SKB 3i-Series 4213-12 Wheeled Waterproof Utility Case is divided in 5 sections each one approximately 2.6'' thick.

question

Will the 12' manfrotto alu master stacking stands fit in the SKB 4213-12?
Asked by: Eric
Hi Eric, I haven't tested that particular stand so I can't say for certain. Just to confirm I believe you're talking about model number 1004BAC. It looks like the collapsed height is 42.13 . The internal measurement of the case with the padded dividers is close to 41.5 . If you put the stand in at an angle it might fit. Besides that you could also look at our 3i-4719-8B-L case. That would come with layered foam so you could cut compartments for the stands and other gear. Thank you,Will
