Reliable like all Pelican cases, perfect protection

By Mirkal

from Lima, Peru

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Orange):

Like all Pelican cases my 1500 is fulfilling exactly the way it was built for - strong like a tank, perfect and 100% protection against elements (water and dust) and against people too (rough handling at airports, car transport etc.). I bought it to transport a sensitive and expensive CCD camera for astrophotography and some fine-mechanical elements like filter wheel and very expensive narrow band filters for astrophotography and I trust my gear 100% to this case and Pelican cases in general. I was considering also some other brands but none of the convinced me to be better or at least this was my perception. There are also other brands on the market of course but I always go for Pelican, built quality, materials, air-pressure valve, double-action locks and perfect sealing can't be better.

Great Pruduct

By Ray D

from San Francisco Bay Area

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Silver):

Over the years, I have been extremely happy with my Pelican Cases. This is the first case I have purchased with the pre-cut removable foam squares. I was a little concerned about actually removing too much foam, but that turned out to be no problem at all. The foam removal was very easy. I am using this case with a Spotting Scope. It provides the protection I was looking for. A person can contact Pelican and get the foam custom cut for the specific item(s) the case will be used for, but that ends up being an added expense, This is a nice yet less expensive alternative. I am happy with this purchase.

        We use this case for a projector. This gets shipped on flights, mailed, carried, etc. As you may know they a fragile so protection is the most important standard. This case will provide you with the confidence to protect the most fragile equipment

            Best cases around, durable, waterproof, solid, beautiful. Everything should be in a pelican case, I think I might start carrying my lunch in one.

            If you get one with foam, just plan ahead before you start tearing it out or you'll end up with an ugly less functioning inside.

                Had my pelican case with DSLR in a kayak pinned in a Class V rapid for over 24 hours - not a drop of water got in and the camera was good as new. These are the best protective cases you can buy.

                The box is kinda heavy - but that's kinda the point. It's tough.

                I was looking for a case to keep my gear safe in a very full car trunk as we travel. This does the trick. No problem holding my D7000, its lens, a large telephoto, a macro and my flash. Very satisfied.

                  Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Black):

                  Just for background, I am an electrical engineer. I bought this case to put my multimeters, pliers, tweezers, test leads, screwdrivers, etc. I plan on working in the field and in the lab.

                  This case is the perfect size. It is not too big nor too small. It fits all of my tools perfectly. I love the pick and pluck foam that allows customization.

                  Also, another reason I bought it is for the reinforced padlock slot. Most other cases have a flimsy place to lock your case, why bother? I cannot find anything wrong with this case.

                  I totally recommend this case to anyone and everyone!
