    Pelican 1730 reviews

    1730 Transport Case with Foam (Olive Drab Green) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! So i put my imac in its original box inside of this and checked it on a plane from san diego to philly. I was weary of this, but it was my only option. Needless to say it made it there and back with no problems. I watched it being tossed on a conveyor belt thinking I was screwed.... but nope, the case is a beast and super strong! I highly recommend this case for anyone needing assurance on carry their gear! Please note you must be pretty strong to wheel this around when filled up. Mine weighed 78lbs and was kinda tricky get too and from some place and lifting it into the back of a car.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, but BIG! Bought this case to help transport multiple smaller camera items and associated gear. On my last trip, I used the case to haul a tripod, 3-legged monopod, drone (packed in a smaller hard case), chargers, assorted accessories, and cloths. This thing is BIG. The case empty weighs in at 30 pounds and after it was filled with gear it tipped the scales at over 90. The wheels worked great though, even with a full load. The case rolls well, but it is cumbersome. If you need to haul a lot of gear and want to make sure the contents are well protected - this is the case for you. Just be prepared to get hit with baggage fees at the airport. Fortunately for me, my company reimburses me for the costs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for tripods and stands I originally bought this case with the foam to transfer artwork to and from shows, but then I realized it's also perfect for traveling with some awkward gear like heavy tripods that don't fit so well in my Pelican 1630 rolling case. It's great that the wheels and handle are integrated so as to avoid the volume lost by a retractable handle system in other cases, like the 1630. It fits my shorter camera shoulder bag well, but I wish the case were about 2-3 inches taller to fit my largest shoulder bag really well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for a 27inch IMac I bought this to transport a 27inch iMac on planes and such. If you take out all the foam, and place the iMac in it's nice and safe factory box, it fits perfectly in the pelican case. There is even a small bit of room left for peripherals or hard drives. If you love this computer, hate laptops, and are serious about setting up your workstation in the field. This is the way to go. Sure the case is rather large, and a bit on the heavy side, but it's worth it if you need it. Any other custom case will cost you more than double the price of this pelican. Yes you will more than likely pay overweight fees when checking in this case on flights. But if you are considering this item, chances are that you are a professional, you really need it, and you can probably expense it ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1730 Transport Case with Foam This size case was perfect for our needs, This case came with 3 layers of foam that you can take out, And each layer has small little cubes if you need to customize the fit for you items. However I didnt need any of the layers, I just left the egg foam on the lid and on the bottom and sides. Im using it for electronic parts, Large Power Supplies, Tool, etc. Since the unit it so large, I was so happy that it has wheel to get it around. Also there is 2 stainless steel latches for putting on locks. This was not cheap but if this will fit your needs then buy it. Very well built.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pelican 1730 Perfect for IMac 27 This case is the perfect protector for my tricked out IMac 27 for traveling. There is ample room for a good 3 to 4 inches of padding around all sides of the computer in this monster case. Its 8 latches insure a tight fit, and nothing will accidentally open it. Beware though, it is a heavy case. To keep the load under 70 pounds, not much can be loaded into it besides the IMac itself. Although, I was also able to squeeze in a Samsung 23 HDMI monitor and a small speaker while within the 70 pound limit (before having to pay the airline almost 3x as much)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for telescopes I use this as a storage and trnasportation case for my Celestron NexStar 127 Telescope, everything fits in there with no problem and I still have space left for some more stuff.
    Date published: 2015-10-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. Indestructible. Huge. I bought this case to transport server equipment. I was able to fit my 27" iMac, modem, router, external data tower, laptop, and my UPS In it. It is waterproof as I have tested it. It can hold my weight (169 LBS) and is shock absorbent. The 3 layer 1" x 1" pick-n-pluck foam works perfectly. This is an affordable solution to my needs. I would defiantly recommend this case to others with similar needs.
