This Pelican case really doesn't need a review, it's the best case available on the planet and was my first purchase from B&H. When I received it, I could only open it about 5 inches and I was afraid to force it. I called B&H the following day, explained my concern, and they told me to FORCE IT, that if anything broke they'd replace it at no charge including shipping. I forced it and it opened right up, the rear hinges are heavily spring loaded. My photo buddies have told me never to buy anywhere other than B&H, now I know why! Thanks guys!

Case is easy to use and to create custom case layout with the punchout foam. Only issue is the lid foam was cut too small so it doesn't fit the lid tightly. Have to place it back into the lide after every openning. Added some additional foam and tape behind the foam to keep it in place.

Agonized, and not sorry

By Regina

Comments about 1560 Case with Foam Set (Black):

Probably watched every video online about these and competitor cases before buying and I'm very happy with it. If you've got a fair amount of camera gear, you want a *few* of these cases. Your case will get VERY HEAVY if you put a decent amount of gear in it, so plan what *needs* to go in there. Stuff that won't break anyway, can go in a different bag. This one came with plenty of foam and you should take the time to figure out how to use the foam well. Do not worry if you make a mistake because you can just tape pieces back together again, so keep those foam pieces and use them as extra stuffing! Don't expect to use this as a carry on: it will have to be checked. I use this one for a rack of film cameras. For my digital body and better lenses, I decided to add the approved carry-on version as well. I do NOT understand why anyone would buy this just to store a few knives or for clothes, but that's just me. Also, no plans to drive over it with a car or swim a moat, so most of the sales hype points aren't that important. What IS important is that TSA is not about to treat your gear with TLC: you want something that will protect it from being tossed about and you can actually SIT ON IT when stuck in airports or out in the "wilderness." Gun owners love these, and that makes a bit more sense. You'll want stickers for easy identification and theft deterrents like zip locks or padlocks. Suggestions not seen in videos: 1) take pictures of everything you put in it before you go for insurance, 2) put your business card on the *inside* as well and 3) use cheapo travel cases and hand towels to store your bits/pieces and as extra padding in the lid if you don't buy the lid organizer.

Best luggage ever

By Christopher

from Undisclosed

Comments about 1560 Case with Foam Set (Black):

I travel professionally all over the world and have for 15+ years. In that time I've had every type of luggage fail on me. Pelican so far is the best solution yet. I have a 1510, 1560, and a 1650. Wouldn't trade them for anything.

Solid

By JEFFREY

Comments about 1560 Case with Foam Set (Silver):

Military or for personal videography use, always my go to brand of case.
I bought this for my C100 Mark ii. I have the handle unit, Rode NG2 with deadcat, extra batteries and power supplies, along with a 35mm and 85mm stored inside. Perfect A cam set up. I also like there are two layers of foam to store for example the batteries at a higher even level. This price, this case-it makes sense.

super tough, forever warranty, waterproof dustproof, when im out at the field flying and it starts raining i can throw my radio gear and chargers in their cases so quick and then not be worried at all about them. More time to put my planes away so they dont get wet or blow down the field.

    I purchased the Pelican 1560 to hold my Video gear. I used it to hold my Panasonic GH4, Sony A6300 and assortments of lens and accessories. The Pelican 1560 is the way to go. All my components have a home inside the case. It is very rugged and keep every thing safe and secure.

        Comments about 1560 Case with Foam Set (Silver):

        I like Pelican cases. It is definitely interesting trying to figure out the best pieces to pluck since you only get one shot to do it right, but there is always additional foam to order if I need it.
        But overall, I trust my equipment is protected in these cases, which is the main reason for owning them.
