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.

This is a fine light duty case but appeared to have suffered some structural damage just from shipping. The lid rail was bend, hinges sprung with a nice dent on one edge in the box. I was able to bend it back to functional just using my hands. For the money, I was expecting a little more substance. If you are looking for something that will stand up to harsh wear and tear, keep looking....

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.

Got this case to have a convenient way to store my photo equipment during our international move to Germany. It fits the bill perfectly. As of now it holds the following: Canon Vixia Camcorder, Olympus PEN E-P3 body, Olympus OM-D E-M5 body, M.Zuiko 14-42 mm, M.Zuiko 40-150mm, M.Zuiko 45 mm f1.8 with Olympus lens hood attached, M.Zuiko 60 mm f2.8, and the small flash that came with the OM-D E-M5. There is still room for a bit more equipment, see my uploaded picture.

The case itself is lightweight and lockable. Probably would not withstand any serious impact but for my purpose it works very well. Beats having to lug around and keep track of several camera bags! Recommend as a compact storage solution.

The product came in and fit the description perfectly and at a very decent size for my needs. I needed a TSA approved box that will favor the security needs for airline travel and this Aluminum Hard Case will get that job done. The reason for 4 stars is because of the key quality to lock the locking latches are very easy to bend and overtime of use, it appears to bend in time. Another factor to consider is the lock latch itself is not enough lock strength however, once lock, the latch has a hole where you can buy an optional TSA combination lock for added security which appears it was designed to be that way.. The key lock isn't good enough for my concerns since I'm using this case for Firearms and weaponry.

One thing I loved was the pre-cut form for items you want to secure in with the shape of your device. Just simply press your device hard on the form so you can see the print and than push out the shape.... The result is you now created Foam space to fit your item in placement.

Overall very great box with the exception of low quality lock keys and having to buy combination locks to have the locking method to optimize locking security.

Got the 1st case and it had a dent and gouge in it right out of the box. Returned that one and got another one. Was excited to protect some sensitive equipment properly while I traveled. Works great to mold your own spaces inside to fit your contents just right. However on the very first trip I took it on I checked it. It came out of the airline shoot at my destination with a huge dent and the back of the case where the wheels attach had a crack in it all the way across the suitcase. Not made for airline handling. I am going to try and return this one also.

This case has been protecting my light bulbs for my studio equipment for a year. This case has been kicked, dropped, slammed, had heavy things stacked on it, rained on, etc. and I have never lost a bulb. Buy this!

OK..Just ok. The case and inserts are great. I needed it to protect my new, expensive long lens BUT the key is a JOKE! It does NOT lock, and as I have already cut and fixed the foam, I can't return it. The loop around the lock....well I hope it lasts awhile. It is VERY flimsy. Looks like a dollar store type lock and build. If you understand that then go for it. But if you need a REAL lock..then this is not it. I feel as if a little tug and the loops around the lock would come right off. They are NOT soldered together, but 'fit in' and then pinched. So a little pull and they will come right off. As the lens is VERY expensive, I will put a strap around the case. The case itself is nice and looks good. It is a shame Ape skimped on the lock mechanism!
