Pelican 1510 Hard Case review by libertinephotography

Pros: Everything Fits!!, Very Tough and Secure, Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee
Cons: Heavy (especially when full), Wheels are Cumbersome Over Terrain, Pull-up Handle is Flimsy

This is a great case for transporting a maximum amount of gear over a long area, such as, on an airline (I carried it on with no problems going through security in either Chicago, Kansas City, Las Vegas, or San Diego Airports). I pack four SLR bodies, five lenses, speedlight, extra memory cards, batteries, chargers, cords, white/graycards, extra film, filters, and more in this case with no problem. I would definitely suggest ordering it with the optional dividers, and spending the extra $30 for the lid organizer (a must). My only problems are with the wheels, which are small and DON'T do well over even the SLIGHTEST bumps in the road, and with the pull-up handle which appears a bit flimsy. I don't worry too much about the handle though because if it ever breaks, I know that it would be covered under Pelican's inclusive warranty. I used to work in the luggage business; this is a UNIQUE and GOOD warranty to the industry.
