I bought this to protect an expensive electronic instrument (Fluke 87-V DMM), and it just fits with the probes included.
The hinge uses stainless pins for extra strength; and the lid, body of the case, and latch mechanism all appear to be super tough polycarbonate, with a rubber liner the size of the body of the case to cushion the contents and act as a seal for the lid.
There's also a nice Pelican innovation of a pressure equalization valve right below the latch to allow air from heat expansion to escape if the case gets warmed up, but still keep the contents sealed.
It also comes with a carabiner attached to one end to make it easy to secure to something else to prevent loss.
A quick check on Pelican's site finds that this case is water RESISTANT, not waterproof, explaining that it will keep water out down to one meter deep for up to thirty minutes.
What that translates to is that this wouldn't work for scuba diving, but it would be perfect to protect cell phones and other fragile items while boating and in rain.
My own experience with Pelican's smaller version of this case, the Micro 1020, bears this out, since I took it with me canoeing over a decade ago to protect my cell phone, and the case wound up in the water, yet protected it perfectly, and the case stayed afloat with my phone and wallet inside.
In fact, it's a very good thing I took it with me because I had to call 911 for a woman who had been knocked unconscious that day, and the phone was still bone dry, even though I needed to retrieve the Pelican case holding it from the water earlier.
It's also nice how easy it is to open and close this case, which can be done easily with one hand.
I also should mention that this case floats, even when I have my somewhat heavy (over 22 oz.) Fluke 87-V DMM in it.
The most important thing for the prospective buyer to know is what are the internal dimensions, which are not listed here on Amazon, so here they are, straight from Pelican's site: 8.25" x 4.25" x 2.25"

I used this case to keep my phone & camera in while rafting down Kenai River. It worked exactly as it's supposed to. Everything inside was dry as could be. Everything outside was totally drenched. Lightweight, sturdy (it got banged around on the raft & in the airport quite a bit), definitely works well!

I have previously used the Otter cases, but my brother raved about these, so I went ahead and got this one to hold my Solite headlamp.

I'm definitely impressed! It's waterproof and lined on the bottom with a rubber material. It's waterproof and has a vent valve in front for sudden pressure changes. It's constructed very sturdily and will take a lot of abuse. I really like having the clear top so that I don't have to open it to make sure everything is in there.

Pelican water and air tight cases are the gold standard in portable gear storage.
I have four different sizes of these guys. You can put quite a bit of stuff in them and are only limited by your needs or imagination. I use them to organize things rolling around in my truck. When things are out of sight in my vehicles they might as well not exist because I forget they are there. I have two of those in my center console.

One 1060 (the big one) is for mints, tylenol,,Chapstick, eyewash, pens, spare pens, sharpie markers., The other 1060 is for keys, extra keys, hitch lock key, wheel lug key, knife, box knife, spare gun magazine, small roll gorilla duct tape. Both have clear top so you don't have to dig through them to see what you're looking for.

They are tough. They get thrown around. Your tuff will be at hand, organized, and dry.

My 1050 (medium one) and 1020 for small, I keep some of the head flashlights and respective size batteries. Plus if you are on an outdoor adventure you can dump any cases out and refill with the must keep dry stuff.

Oh,and the reason I let you know about the other sizes and not just one specific model is that most are pondering which size to get, and what can fit in them. Any smaller than 1020 is for iPod, cell phone, etc.

I use this case for the beach. It does a great job. I just wish I got the size up, as it can only hold my iPhone and wallet. My lack of research though

The Pelican 1060 is a watertight box that the IPhone fits perfectly in. Before I bought this case I would leave my IPhone in the truck when I went anywhere wet or rocky. The phone would cost me $700 to replace and is not even a little waterproof or shockproof. Now I put my IPhone in this case, attach the carabiner to my belt, and don't give it another thought.

While I was on a fishing trip in the Smokey Mountains I slipped on a rock and fell directly on the case - hard. I fell onto a large domed rock and it hurt! The case barely got a scratch and the IPhone didn't even notice. The manufacturer says this is not for swimming or diving, but I know if you throw it in a stream it will float and not take on even a little water.

Pelican makes GREAT cases, this is one of them. I store my g-drive in there for transport all over town. Pits perfectly and it is also protected from moisture. I can still read the label on the drive. Love this case.

This product is great and durable. Protects my medication and phones for hours while I'm enjoying the outdoors. This size can fit two smart phones and the equivalent of 2-3 deck of cards.

The only real con about this is that it is kind of overpriced but I know that this brand is well known and pretty durable. We use it for boating and other water activities; it fits two iPhones, keys, and a wallet comfortably with a little room to spare. One of the bigger models might be better to fit EVERYONE's equipment while on the water but for now this works for the two of us. It is kind of difficult to open as well but it isn't really a big deal; just make sure to hold it while opening so your stuff doesn't fly out everywhere.
