This case is PERFECT. Perfect size, great protection, and the ability to securely lock the case up is a plus. Has space for all three of my camera bodies, 4 of my lenses, and even spare room for miscellaneous items like my Xoom Recorder and memory card case. It fits perfectly in the overhead bins whenever I have to fly somewhere. The fact that it allows me to securely lock it with two padlocks is definitely a plus. I'd recommend this product to any photographer out there, especially if you travel a lot!

It's not the most spacious carry-on. Nice outer construction like all Pelican cases. I wasn't impressed with the dividers; they're not very stiff, and when the case is vertical, heavy items will weigh on them. Foam would be a better choice for heavy items. But for lighter items, it's fine.

My must-have item

Comments about 1510 Carry On Case with Dividers (Black):

No item is left behind, yet it is super compact. I get a DSLR, FS5, an extra lens or two plus batteries, chargers, and other small things. Super sturdy, and best of all, comes on the plane with me as a carry-on. I have two of those and love them.

Comments about 1510 Carry On Case with Dividers (Black):

Awesome case but I am somewhat concerned about the easy of opening the latches. I would definitely consider zip tie at the lock holes if loading in belly of plane. Also, keep in mind that if you add cover organizer, you compromise protection of contents by removing cover foam. Otherwise this case rocks!

I use this case during work trips where I am constantly running to location after location at a very high intensity pace. Not only is this case a great alternative to a backpack (having your gear on your back all day causes a lot of pain) It is also a nice seat wherever you go. Working in manhatten and taking ot from subway to subway I feel my gear is safe an drew secure. I also love that it has slots so you can lock you're gear. It also firs my 15onch MacBook which is a huge plus

I love my Pelican case! Being in the military I find it very useful when we are in the field. I don't have to worry about my gear and can focus on working. I can easily put a Glidecam HD-2000 with a Canon 1DC a 24-70 f/2.8 and a couple flashes inside without any issues.

Great case

By Sheldon

Comments about 1510 Carry On Case with Dividers (Black):

Really like these cases. They're nice and small for my camera (which is also small) and easy to move around. The only problem is that it has tiny wheels which aren't great if you're dragging them on coarse surfaces, but for the most part it's not a problem.

Purchased this to carry my extra lenses for shoots. Keeps everything nice and secure and the case is small enough to be carried on a plane. Having the rolling option is a nice feature.

Comments about 1510 Carry On Case with Dividers (Desert Tan):

I really wasn't in the market for a new roller bag, but I was taking an online class and the instructor used this same case. When she showed how she used it to stand on, sit on or use as a desk I was sold. I usually carry a collapsible stool for those things, so now I don't have to.

Plus I shoot outdoors for the most part so it being water and dust proof was a big selling point too.

Not as big as I anticipated.

Comments about 1510 Carry On Case with Dividers (Desert Tan):

I don't have a lot of gear, 2 lens, a camera and 2 small genaray lights and i'm pretty much squeezing everything in here. I mean, everything fit, I was expecting a little more room. It definitely would not have fit had I chose to stick with the foam layout. My suggestion, get hands on first then see if it's the size you need. The size would be comparably somewhere in the middle of a small-medium.

I have three of these for different gear. The size is great for most things. Dividers work great, though I wish they had other options for lighter colors. Don't forget to add the Pelican 1519 lid organizer. Adds a lot of useful storage for small items.

Rock Solid

By Thomas H

Comments about 1510 Carry On Case with Dividers (Black):

This is the perfect case for traveling with camera gear. It has way more room than I expected. I can fit three lenses, a nikon d750 body and a mini supply kit on just one side of the internal foam dividers. There is plenty of room left for 2-3 more bodies and 2-3 more lenses, or if someone was so inclined a small travel tripod.

Only detraction would be the foam in the lid is not secured at all- keeps falling out whenever I open the case. I'm going to get some velcro tape or something like that to secure it in there.
I kind of wish I would have gotten the model with the pocket organizer in the lid, but so far this model has been great.

I feel like my gear is perfectly secure and I can chuck this thing around in my truck, on a shoot, etc.

Comments about 1510 Carry On Case with Dividers (Desert Tan):

The Pelican 1510 is the perfect hard case for air travel. 

I had originally bought the HPRC 2550 case but sent it back and got the 1510 case instead.  The Pelican case won me over due to the little details that the 2550 did not have:  The holes for the padlocks to lock the case are big enough to accept standard Master padlocks; on the HPRC case, the locks barely fit and stuck out at weird angles, whereas the 1510 has recesses for the locks that allow them to lay flush.  The ears that accept the locks are reinforced with stainless steel on the Pelican but not on the HPRC.  The towing handle on the Pelican is more sturdy with much less play (wiggle) when extended than the HPRC case. 

Overall fit and finish on the Pelican case is a cut above the HPRC and the intrusions made by the wheels and towing handle are smaller on the Pelican, taking up less room in the case. 

The Pelican case is made of a different material that feels more sturdy than the HPRC case.  The lid fits better on the Pelican than on the HPRC which had a slight but visible waviness along the front edge.
 
The edges where the lid meets the body of the case are a better fit on the Pelican; on the HPRC, the fit was not straight which would seem to indicate that the waterproof gasket in the lid was not getting uniform pressure along its entire length, which could possibly let water leak in if the case were caught in a torrential downpour or were to go overboard off of a boat. 

Bottom line:  Get the Pelican 1510.  It is a superior case when compared to the HPRC 2550.

Good Quality; Overpriced...

Comments about 1510 Carry On Case with Dividers (Desert Tan):

This is a good case, though smaller than you might expect. Do not purchase this case if you want to store long lenses in vertical position, of course, since they will not fit. Generally you can fit 8 smaller lenses in this case, along with some extras like a battery charger.

I am impressed with the effectiveness of this divider system and happy the price was the same as for the empty Pelican 1510. Of course, because it's a Pelican it's reliable and it's good.
