Does someone make padding for this case? I do not want foam, I have worn through the foam already and want to replace it with something better.

No other type of padding is made specifically for this case. Pelican foam is the only fitted, manufactured replacement.

question

Are these wheels hard plastic? Or rubbery? If plastic, is it loud when you roll on pavement?
Asked by: Chris W.
I have wheeled mine endlessly through airports laden with gear without much audible issue. I don't recall if they are rubbery or not, but they are surely sturdy, and work. This case has been awesome.

question

In the description it says it has three handles? Top Folding HandleTwo Side Folding Handle What's the difference between top folding handle and two side folding handles?Not having the handle in the middle is really a deal breaker for me. As it makes it very difficult to load in and out of vehicles.
Asked by: Walter N.
Hi. It has only the two side folding handles . It should be nice a third one in the middle, but it could be a problem too. This is a big case, so people use to put too many thins inside, wich mekes it a very heavy piece. Im photgrapher, and have my equipment in two of these cases. Both of them are very heavy, so hardly I could hold them only by a handle in the middle. To load in and out of vehicles you need, help, or patience, or both of them.
