I originally tried the Pelican 1200 case to house my GoPro camera plus accessories with no luck. The 1400 was my solution with some room to grow! I have bought Pelican cases in the past and will continue to do so in the future as they are a well made USA product made to house our important products!

I bought this case for my Nikon D7000 and I really wish it was a tad larger and the foam inside had two levels for customizing the inside. The worst thing about this case is that the latches are difficult to work. Otherwise, it does its job well. I just have some personal preferences that this product doesn't meet.

Great cases

By Goose

Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Olive Drab):

Super pumped about the 1400 case. It will be used to tote ammo to Africa then a pistol case after the safari. Great handle places to add locks and very rugged.

Just started to use it for our school video camera. This is very safely protected. Will be adding one for my home camera to use in my drift boat when I guide Fly Fishermen this summer.

Worth it

Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Black):

Exactly as described. Tough case with clever method of configuring the foam insert to accommodate each item. Extra inserts are available separately if in time it becomes necessary to reconfigure the placement of your contents. Would purchase again.

Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

The Pelican 1400 is a perfectly sized case for my Mavic drone with accessories. The quality of the entire case is impressive and quite solid. The pick and pluck foam was easy to manipulate to the cavity sizes needed. I completed the case by spraying the foam with several layers of Plasti-Dip.

Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Black):

I purchased this case to store my Tamron 150-600mm lens in when not in use to keep from repeating a problem I had with fungus in my lens due to humid conditions. I could not be happier with my purchase. It was so easy to map out the exact pieces to pluck out. My lens fits perfectly in this section. The quality of this case is superb and I plan to purchase others for my remaining lens.

Excellent Case - A Bit Smaller Than Expected

By Sandy

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Orange):

The product itself is as advertised, although it was a bit smaller than anticipated. After reading the reviews, I decided to purchase the Pelican 1400 Case because of Pelican's reputation, and the desire to keep my equipment in as pristine condition as possible, while shooting in environments that are less than pristine. I liked the idea of being able to design my own pattern for my equipment by easily removing the pre-scored foam pieces. I was able to fit my Sony A7RII with a 24-70 FE Sony lens attached, and a Rokinon 135mm f/2.0 for Sony E Mount lens in the case. This left very little room for accessories, such as a couple of batteries and a battery charger. Be careful when designing the foam interior, make sure you have at least two rows of foam between objects, otherwise the foam wall will collapse when removing equipment, making it more difficult to return said equipment to the case.
All in all, the case is as advertised, the dimensions are accurate and the case is virtually indestructible. However, on further introspection, I would order a larger case that would hold another, longer, zoom lens that I plan to purchase in the near future.

Overkill protection for anything fragile & expensive.

By Mary

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Orange):

These cases are overkill for protection of anything fragile & expensive. Be careful to check the inside dimensions before you order. The case will hold much less than you'd think. I think my lenses will be much happier when being bounced around on rough dusty roads. They should be great for air travel also. Cons: they are heavy & don't hold as much as you'd think.

Will Buy again

By Llebrez

from S. California

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Black):

Pelican cases are known for rugged construction. This case is used in a system for commercial usage. Because we offer nothing but the best quality, we house the control circuits inside of a Pelican 1400 to ensure many years of reliability. The only odd thing is that the model with foam inside is cheaper than the one without foam!. Someone along the marketing line has the wires crossed...

The Case You Were Looking For

By David the Editor

Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Black):

I put my lavalieres in this and it's so much better than having to buy the one that is already cut for you. I put it the way I needed it to and I have more space to add more equipment.
