Good but Pelican could easily make it better...

Comments about iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Black):

This would have been good in the past when Pelican was one of the very few companies making hard cases..

Got this for the Co I work with for a specific item and while this is a good case, It's not even close to the quality of my Nanuk 935.

This either needs an extra handle, or a curved design for the trolley handle that allows to lift a heavy case and keeps it relatively in balance.
The trolley handle itself is wobbly, needs 2 hands to open/close and has only 1 length option unlike the Nanuk.
The wheels are way too hidden. If you are in a carpeted area, most likely you'll drag this instead of roll it.
If you roll it on concrete and will stop it will sit on the side rim. It will end up scratched. That rim should be thicker or should be a raised "feet area" on the bottom.

The Pelican site also needs a case finder tool. (or if they have one put it in a place where it can be found) Would be awesome to find quickly the right size (like at Lowepro)

Best Pelican case I own, I have several sizes and styles. The new latches are far superior to the previous models. You can quickly and quietly gain access.

    A little bit smaller than I imagined, but the quality is there, of course.

    Great for carrying expensive bits. Get a bigger case for your larger pieces of value.

    Comments about iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Black):

    This is my third Pelican case. I bought this case to store and protect two DSLR cameras with a group of lenses while I travel on my motorcycle on photography trips in the highlands in Iceland. I bought this case because my experience of Pelican cases is that they are safe, reliable and they can withstands incredible stress and impact.

    A good standard field case. Be prepared for some bruises with this sturdy thing smashing into your leg now and again, but is my gear safe? Yes, yes.

    This has been the only carrying case I have used to protect the handheld x-ray imaging devices I brought to the global market beginning in 2004. It has seen duty in disasters, crime scenes and autopsy rooms, as well as clinics and labs all over the world.

      Comments about iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Black):

      I needed a case to protect my impact octacool-6 fluorescent light (without reflector) when on location and with some strategic picking I managed to fit the light unit and 6 bulbs. I've used it several times. It's not a smooth roller, but my light and bulbs have stayed intact. I love this case and thinking of getting the padded insert to switch out and carry my gear when I don't need to use my light or I may just get another case. The price it great too!

      It is a great compact size and I got it for travel. I quickly found out, though, that the wheels are not the best and it can be extremely hard to steer through an airport.

          It is the right case to carry onto a plane. It is nicer than the SeaHorse but it also costs more. I use the SeaHorse for less expensive gear.

            Comments about iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Yellow):

            If you are, like me, looking at the iM2500 because the you nearly had a heart attack when you saw the price of the Pelican Elite luggage, congratulations! This box is great. Wheels are VERY sturdy, quick open latches (the reason for the storm trak) are strong, genuine Pelican quality.Granted, no, it does not look as good as the 22" Elite Carry-on, but is that worth $ to you? HECK NO! ($ if you get the "travel package"). Save that $ and you could buy 51.75 Starbucks Mocha Frappuccinos! You could almost buy .1 oz of 50 year old Macallan!I bought the yellow to stand out if I ever put it in checked luggage. Good buy.General FYI: the wheels and rolling system take up a little of the bottom of the box, just don't freak out when you remove all of the foam and the bottom isn't flat.

                Comments about iM2500 Storm Trak Case with Foam (Black):

                I am a real fan of these cases. They are the biggest size that can go as carry-on on an airplane. They are very tough, latches work well, nice wheels, extended handle, good pressure valve, proof against water. Good foam, and I am able to carefully cut it to get the shapes that I need for camera equipment. I own three of these now.

                    I use the iM2500 to carry two Nikon bodies accompanied by three 2.8 zoom Nikkon lenses (14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm). The size is just right, the equipment fits snugly and is most adequately protected in its foam bed and hard, thick plastic casing.

                    I chose this particular Pelican because of its perfect size for the job, its carry-on capability, the extended handle and wheels for rolling, and its seemingly excellent protection. I think the price is OK (though I'm sure the markup is not a disaster for the company), and I'd be ready to add the extra star if it lasts forever, as they suggest it would.
