Pelican Cases are the BEST!!!

By Brandon

Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Clear Black with Colored Lining):

I use a 1040 to hold my 4 channel Schoeps capsules/KCY rig, with some Schoeps B5 screens on all 4 capsules. And with a piece of foam running down the middle, it's an absolute PERFECT fit IMO If you have something valuable, why risk having it in anything but a Pelican Case? With all of the various styles and designs of Pelican Cases, there's bound to be one that fits whatever your needs are perfectly!

Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Solid Black with Black Lining):

Bought this for my Tascam Dr-40 and Dr-22 recorders. Perfect fit for the Dr-40 and I added a small amount of foam for the Dr-22. Just what I was expecting. I needed something that would hold up to being placed in a motorcycle saddlebag and these fit that task nicely.

Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Clear Yellow with Colored Lining):

I was a little uncertain if the micro case was what I was looking for but placed the order. The micro box was perfect. It came quicker than was expected and I must say the experience dealing with B&H was great. I would definitely order from them again. Mike D

Indestructible, Color-Coded Protection For Delicate Items

By Don

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Clear Red with Colored Lining):

I have several of these extremely well made cases, which I use to protect and carry my more delicate gadgets, such as my flash meter and flash triggers. I have tried cases from other manufacturers, but these are the best. The clear tops allow me not only see the contents, but to make sure that when I'm packing up after a shoot, the contents have actually been put away. The colors (in my case, all of my cases are red) allow me to spot MY cases from anyone else's. And they are darn near indestructible. I love these cases.

          This is a great product, it holds my motorola droid turbo in it's otterbox case, my wallet and my car keys. Keeps them dry and it floats if you drop it in the water.

          Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Solid Yellow with Black Lining):

          I needed a small case to protect my Globalstar SAT phone for a backpacking trip. It's the perfect size for the phone and USB charger. You have to buy the Pelican 1042 Foam insert for full protection. It's water resistant and very impact resistant. I'm not worried about water because I have a water resistant backpack with a rainfly so any water that gets through the pack will be protected by the case.

          The lid seals tight and it's easy to open and close.

          I'm very happy with it.

          Comments about 1040 Micro Case (Clear Red with Colored Lining):

          What is "Clear Red"? To be accurate, the description should read, "Clear with Red Colored Lining". That said, this appears to be a solid case, consistent with Pelican's reputation. B&H customer service did a great job answering my questions, and shipping was fast. Since it is a clear case (and presumably you would like to be able to see through it), it would have been nice if they had placed the Pelican label on the edge of the case, instead of right on the face.

              I bought this to store my new Tascam DR-40 recorder. It fits the recorder snugly but perfectly, with room for the USB cable tucked-in on the side. Quality is outstanding, and I've felt confident bringing my recorder on several camping/hiking trips and I know it will be almost impossible for it to ever become wet or damaged in this case! If you shop around for cases this is top quality for such a great price, by far. Again, this case just fits the DR-40 with really no room for it to "rattle" around
