    Pelican 1560 reviews

    1560 Case with Foam Set (Desert Tan) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 162.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I THINK IT'S BULLET PROOF This Pelican case really doesn't need a review, it's the best case available on the planet and was my first purchase from B&H. When I received it, I could only open it about 5 inches and I was afraid to force it. I called B&H the following day, explained my concern, and they told me to FORCE IT, that if anything broke they'd replace it at no charge including shipping. I forced it and it opened right up, the rear hinges are heavily spring loaded. My photo buddies have told me never to buy anywhere other than B&H, now I know why! Thanks guys!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One tough case Great case for my Panasonic AG-AC160A. Fits the camera, RODE NTG-2 mic, batteries, charger, XLR cable and book. This was my first Pelican case, so I was not sure how it was going to fit my gear, but all you do is move the small foam cubes and presto, customized case. This case was much less expensive than the one Panasonic sells as a custom fit. The case is a bit heavy, but then its allow very well made out of tough material and it rolls, so I don't have to carry it very far. I'd buy another for sure. You might consider getting the 1510, but I was concerned it might be a bit small. Be sure to look at the inside dimensions of the case you want to buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality There is only one word to describe Pelican products - Quality! I own 4 different cases for four very different purposes. Every case is made superbly. My oldest case is about 4 years old. It protects my GPS nav system and it has been all over the U.S and Canada with me. The case has been dropped a few times - no damage to the contents. Even the case was hardly scratched! The pluck foam is a great concept and it works well. Never had an issue configuring the foam insert to fit my stuff. The cases can be a bit pricey (especially when you get to the larger cases) but they are worth every penny! Protect your gear!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from checked 1560 Case survives 7 flights, fits Printrbot PLAY This case is serious and held a Printrbot PLAY 3d printer, a 3DS 3d scanner, PLA spools and tools perfectly. Only reason I didn't pack the computer in there as well is that the PC was too wide. This case traveled through many flights within Peru and the sensitive 3d printing equipment remained intact and aligned. The grey color is awesome. At about $130 it was a great deal. Looks like luggage, performs like a titanium safe! The pinch and pluck foam worked really well and the inside of the case looks like it was custom made for my printer. It was very comfortable to roll around airports and streets. The handle extended to a nice height. I did not have to crouch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE ONLY way to check-in your gear!!! When originally ordering the case I was sure it was too big to carry on, however: depending on the airline they may/may not allow you to bring the 1560 as a carry on. I was in fact allowed to do this on an international flight. On numerous occasions I have checked this case as baggage without any worry at all knowing that my gear is secured. The pick foam interior safely and securely holds all the contents and the case is quite roomy. I was able to fit 2 bodies 5D MkII, t2i, a 70-200 IS II 2.8, 580EX II flash, 85mm 1.8, 24-105 f/4, 18-55 kit lens, both chargers, including an extra one for the flash and the AA batteries, as well as some additional accessories. Still room remains for when I acquire more gear. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to safely and securely store and transport your gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for traveling I ordered the Pelican after accepting a short noticed assignment requiring to travel by plane with my own lighting gear. I was able to fit 3 strobe heads and a ring flash in the case. The extra customizable padding that came with the case enabled me to fit everything nice and snug so nothing moved at all. The Pelican kept my lights safe and in perfect working order. The case wheels and retractable handle make it very easy to carry around. This is a 5 stars rating as I cannot find anything dissatisfying with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1500 series is just right I'm using this case to store and transport a Blackmagic Studio camera with lens and accessories. Typical pluck foam is great for a snug fit. I got the 1560 because I intend on getting another BM Studio camera and there is plenty of room to safely store both. My favorite thing about the 1500 series, you ask? It's the last in line with 2 latches. Once you hit the 1600s they start throwing latches all over the lid. That may be necessary if you're going into combat or something, but the simple 2 latch lid has a tight fit and is completely satisfactory. If there was one thing I'd like to see added is either a tripod clamp, or an accessory to store a tripod on the exterior of the case.
