    Pelican 1630 reviews

    1630 Case with Foam (Desert Tan) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy case that delivers. I have two uses for the case... 1) transporting my radio controlled airplane across the country(with the foam inserts fitted to the parts), and 2) carrying audio gear (cables, mics, laptop...) for a small band. The case is very heavy duty, and was made to take a beating. I love the solid feel of it, and how good it looks. The only thing I don't like is the weight. At 36lbs, it is quite massive, but that can be attributed to the strength it delivers. Then again, if you are using this case, weight is probably not as important as strength. When I put something in this case, I know that it will be in perfect condition when I open it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is GIGANTIC Pelican delivers on everything it promised, but this case is enormous. It literally holds all of my camera gear in one place. The one critique I have of it is that the handles are so wide and situated in such a way it is clearly designed to be carried by 2 people. Not always a convenient design. The roller wheels and handle make up for this flaw in a bunch of ways. Also, if you get the foam, tear delicately. The larger cases come with 1 foam chunks so they rip VERY easily and you might have some trouble reattaching. I would recommend going with the velcro padded inserts for this case. Or if you're fancy, get the custom cuts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge I bought this to be able to lug around my 27in 5K iMac. I saw that Pelican makes a custom-made case for the iMac, but at a very steep price. I wanted to make mine just like it so it took me a couple of days to get the case how I liked. I put cardboard inserts in the case so that the foam wouldn't get too messed up, seeing that the iMac will be lying in that direction when using the wheels on the case. I also got some heavy duty velcro tape to keep the foam from coming apart or sliding when placing the iMac in or taking it out. I still have a whole layer of foam left after I situated the iMac. i wish this thing was one layer thinner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super sturdy, great value The dimensions allow this to go by air as checked luggage. Dimensions for airline consideration are 18 x 24 x 32. This is a total of 74 linear inches -- this is technically oversize (United Airlines will accept items up to 115 linear inches, but charges an extra fee for anything over 62 linear inches), but at least it can accompany as checked luggage. I removed the extendable handle to save weight - this reduced the case weight by 4 pounds, which I needed to do to get my equipment plus case weight under 100 pounds (the limit that United will accept).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fortress ergonomically friendly I have 2 cameras with flashes and extra lenses. I needed something that was durable and easy on the back. I have been in the military and have used back pack stlye photobags in the past. This Case keeps my equipment safe from dust and severe conditions that can occur during assignemnts to inclement weather and high altitude. I have hurt my back and I rely on the ease of the handle with the wheels. I also like the many latches to secure your equipment. Two places to lock your case with padlocks. Laptop fits too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for 27in iMac ..... Just This is big, heavy, and only just fits a 27in iMac. Had to place it the top of the case with the lid foam closing down on the screen with only 10mm gap top and bottom of the mac. So minus a star for that. But underneath the mac I have my elements and below that my display and cables so all in all a good portable set up. Don't know if I would air freight it as display is at the bottom of the case face down on foam. I don't think it would survive a significant drop in this configuration. Weighs 40kg++ fully loaded so lifting is a 2 man job and empty it is a struggle to get up stairs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge!!!!!!! This case is 40lbs with nothing in it. So it is a bit of a beast! So if you are looking for a case to fly with for checked luggage this is most likely not the one to buy. But man this case is impressive and it turns heads when you walk down 5th Ave with two of them!! haha! FYI most airlines consider 60 (total of external measurments) to be Oversized and 50lbs in weight. You calculate external volume by adding up the external dimensions. So for example this case is 31.28 + 24.21 + 17.48 = 72.97 which = Oversized I really wish Pelican would make it easier to search for cases by external volume and not just size. Their sites sucks bad in this respect. Amazing product terrible website! Hope this helps someone find what they are looking for! Luke

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to beat Pelican We are using this case to ship two monitors and stands. Its very easy to handle for its size and very secure. It would be great if it were 5 lbs lighter but Pelican is typically on the lower end of the weight:size ratio.
