Customer Reviews

The case is strong and very well made.
Aaron Wiesner
The problem is that the Pelican case is not that much more and looks to be much higher quality.
Dan
There is plenty of room and 2 layers of foam making customizing this case easy.

Using it as a carry on:
If the feet an handle where just a little smaller it would be, with out the wheels, within the 22"x14"x9" Standard however; it is only about 1/4" over... might be ok. The Pelican 1510 carry-on is a better choice if it will fit what you need. The big plus this case has is that its interior space is about 25% bigger than the 1510 and if you need that space this case may be an option.

Quality of the case;
The case itself is not as strong as I would like but I think it will be OK. The case is made in China and is low price at the cost of quality. The problem is that the Pelican case is not that much more and looks to be much higher quality. The hinges and fasteners are lower grade. The sides will flex with a little pressure, not sure how much weight they would handle but I would not stand on it. When you fill it up, so that the top foam is pressing against the contents, the lid when closed bulges and doesn't fit well to the bottom.

Pros
The big plus with this case is its interior space and removable wheels making it "almost" Carry on size. When you look at interior dimensions this case has the most space of anything that I could find that had a hard exterior and foam inserts.

I have uploaded some pictures showing the size.

Size Name: Jumbo
I use this to carry my Astronomy Eyepieces and accessories. The Yellow interior is very helpful at night to find my black eyepieces, (Competing cases have black foam, which make dark gadgets disappear at night). I can store my 2 inch eyepieces and diagonal-mirror standing up (takes less space than when laying down in my old shallower case).

The foam in the lid is dark egg crate type. The yellow foam in the deeper bottom consists of a bottom most thin layer of yellow foam (not very dense, don't depend on it for padding), with two layers/sheets of pluck foam on top of this. Having two separate layers makes it easier to form 3 dimensional shapes (for example, I take out a 6x6 section on top layer, and a cross pattern on bottom layer, to get a better fit for 2 inch eyepiece; Some of my smaller 1.25" eyepieces need a 2x2 section removed on top layer, and no foam removed on 2nd layer). The pluck-able yellow foam sheets are not perforated along the side boundaries that touch the sides of the case (I like this, it makes it stronger).

The Foam is easy to remove, by inserting a finger down one section at a time (rather than trying to tear out a large section at once, which can pull off neighboring cubes you wanted to stay). Foam also cuts easily with scissors, if you want to remove just a portion of a pre-sliced cube. (I'm saving the pieces I took out, to fill in holes in the future if I decide to reconfigure the shape; contact cement works well to hold the loose cubes in place.)

The case is made of thin material, but seems strong enough for the 15 pounds I have inside. The handle looks and feels sturdy. The shoulder strap has a rubber shoulder piece to distribute weight on your shoulder.

The case looks nice (to my conservative taste).

Size Name: Compact PLUS Verified Purchase
Bought this to be able to transport my handgun on an airplane. I researched gun cases as well as the TSA rules. This case fits the bill perfectly. It is large enough to hold one semi auto possibly two if they are too large and you put nothing else in the case and in my case a Walther P99, as well as three clips.

The foam insert on the lid is an egg crate style. The foam on the bottom is in two sections. There is a thinner solid piece on the floor of the case. On top of that is a much thicker piece but is cut into like 1cm squares with each able to be removed to customize. In addtion it comes with dividers and the sides of the case are grooved to be able to customize the case further. I really do not think anyone could ask for more. As for the case itself, it is all metal, aluminum with steel corners latches and handle. the lid closes on the bottom with a toungue and groove affair, so when closed the case is nice and solid. The latches have locks, but the key is not adequate for securing a weapon as they could be easily comprimized. The nice things though, the latches also accepts a pad lock, on which I used a TSA accepted small pad lock. I must admit that when checking into the airport as was a bit nervous as this was the first time I attempted to travel with a weapon. Absolutely no problem. I prepped the gun further to be sure by putting a gun cable through chamber. The TSA guy ran it through the fluroscope and gave me a two thumbs up. FYI they did open the case at some point because when I go to my destination and inspected the gun, things had been moved around. So, if you need a very sturdy case for cameras etc, you could not ask for better. I am very pleased, and know this case will serve me well for years to come.

we bought 5 of these as travel bags for a product our company sells. First time out one of them busted through on the sides and part of one of the locks broke off. The locking mechanisim is very flimsy. The interior packaging is very good but the case itself is pretty weak.
