    Pelican 1085 reviews

    1085 Hardback Laptop Computer Case with Foam (Black) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for Fieldwork I really like these Pelican laptop cases. I use them for taking my MacBook Pro to client job sites, which can be industrial and/or dusty at times. Now I'm comfortable putting my computer case on any surface as long as the computer is inside the Pelican. The cases are super durable and light-weight, which is perfect for such a task. The only bummer is that I bought this case assuming that the lid didn't fold back all the way, like how it is displayed in the photo. Unfortunately, this is not the case so I had to rig up my own method to prevent the lid from opening all the way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well designed laptop case. I purchased a new MacBook Air specifically for use on motorcycle trips so that I could upload my images each day to review them and create a backup. I wanted a safe way to transport the laptop so that I didn't need to be concerned about bumps and vibration or moisture. This case works beautifully for that purpose. The exterior is no bigger than necessary, which is critical for my purposes. A few toothpicks and a butter knife made swift work of fitting the pluck-and-pull foam interior. Although I have hard cases on the motorcycle, I put over 2,000 miles on the motorcycle, using this case, with no issues at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from case for my 15 macbook pro the case is definitely the strongest i have found, but its also very bulky. even though if says its for 14 laptops, i was able to fit my 15 macbook pro in it. the construction is very solid.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for rugged use. First pelican laptop case I've purchased. Less expensive than all the snap on covers out there with the added bonus of waterproof and very durable. Having only owned standard pelican cases for camera equipment in the past I did however expect something a little tougher, hence the 4 stars. I wouldn't drive over this with my MacBook Air 13 in it. Otherwise it's great for my work commutes bouncing around in a twin otter.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent case... but NOT WATERPROOF This case leaks. Straight out of the box, the sides were bowed enough to allow air past the O-rings. When you push on the center of the case, it breathes through the sides. Note: not the breather hole. I carefully closed it and dunked it under water in the sink. Opened it up a day later (careful to let the entire outside dry) and sure enough.. water inside. The plastic could be stiffer... but its relatively strong. My latch seemed to function adequately. I know other have had troubles with that. the strap eyelets are really not confidence inspring... they are quite thin. For those who are wondering, a 15 retina macbook pro will fit in this box. There is very minimal room left over on the sides for padding.. but it is possible... I'm returning and hoping my next one doesn't have the same sealing issue. Did the same thing with my 1095. Emailed Pelican and they told me to go through B+H. Got another email from them later and they said they would help if needed. If my second cases don't seal, I'll be talking to Pelican. For the seriousness and proudness and boldness of their warranty.. these failed miserably. :-(

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good item, could use some changes The case provides good protction to my 13 Mabook Pro. The case does not have a built in handle to carry the case, you must carry it from the strap that is provided with the case. My laptop is very thin and was not held securly in the case until I purchased a seperate piece of foam rubber to place under the laptop.I would like to see Pelican come up with precut foam kits designed to fit specific models of laptops that you can purchase directly from Pelican.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Computer purse for the plane Holds my 15in Macbook perfectly. Pluck n' Pull foam is a little lame, but does the job. Haven't tested it with water and such, but works well when traveling overseas with my 1510 carry-on when only one carry-on is allowed. When in a bind, you can fit a mobile g-drive on top of the computer, but it's tight. Also a good table to eat on your lap @ the airport.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what i was looking for. I commute to work on the train each day and mt existing laptop case wasn't durable enough. My laptop was getting really beat up. This hardback case has been great at protecting my laptop. The only thing to keep in mind is that the case isnt especially light, so take that into consideration before making your buying decision.
