In addition, the extending handle was well thought out, requiring a convenient, one-handed grab, extend, and go operation, with the release button right on the handle. The handle feels beefier and more secure than the similarly placed handles on the iM2750. The end handle next to it is also well thought out. Rather than the cheaper swing out design, it's a self-retracting, spring-operated, simple, yet impressive and strong handle. It's there when you want it, without any hassle, yet tucks itself away instantly when you don't, much like the pull-out handle does.
For security, the points go to the Nanuk because it has two pieces of finished stainless steel flanges at each hasp point which reinforce each other. They are set up like two nails with the heads together, one in each half, when the case is closed and the smaller diameters face away from the heads creating an elegant yet secure closure to stick your lock through. You can see what I mean if you check out the pictures. As far as I could tell, the Pelican case had two pieces of stainless steel sheet wrapped around each lip and crimped to the plastic. The larger Pelicans have nothing but a hole in the plastic, so any lock is a nuisance at best to anyone seriously after the contents. Imagine TSA's bolt cutters and your plain plastic because they can't find the right TSA key...again.
As for the materials of each case, they are VERY similar, with similar properties and strengths. The Nanuk is slightly more rigid and that may be due to size, or it may have to do with the thickness of the material at strategic points. The wheels on each feel different, though. The Nanuk's definitely roll better. It may be that the Pelican has more material at those particular points, but they were not as free-rolling on carpet as I'd like. The Nanuk's wheels are about 1/4" larger in diameter than the Pelican, and it's the smaller case. Go figure.
The latches on each also are different. They are much crisper operating on the Nanuk, whose locking jaw (as opposed to the latching jaw) is more substantial and you definitely know if they're open or closed. No ambiguity. The latches on the 2750, on the other hand, give a weak sproingy kind of snap, and I found myself opening them and closing them again, just to make sure, and then looking at the others to see if the latch I was working on really was latched. Somehow, I dread the idea of TSA half-latching them all and my stuff spilled in a trail from Portland to Chicago. I don't know if Pelican was going to update these latches or not, but they're the ones that have the gray square in the middle.
The Nanuk's edges appear to match uniformly and securely around the case. I cannot say the same for the Pelican. With all latches closed and the case empty, I noted a distinct wave in the seam between the top and bottom. Not that I plan to throw it in the water, but I'm thinking a difference of 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch, even with an O-ring, is starting to tempt fate.
I'll see how each brand stacks up in the real world. Both have a lifetime warranty, and I have some idea how Pelican handles theirs. I have no idea how Nanuk's is handled, good or bad, but I'm very impressed with the product. I would not hesitate buying another 935, or the 960, which is about 60" in girth. Over 62", the airlines start charging for oversized luggage. When I pushed Pelican on what the largest case is that would safely pass the airlines without oversize charges, they told me the 2750. A couple of times. It's about 58" in girth so you lose a couple of inches versus the Nanuk as well there. Someday, someone will figure out that maybe they should make a case that's, oh, 61.9" in girth.
I'm very surprised there aren't more reviews of this excellent line of cases.
UPDATED November 17, 2014 - After a few flights and service in the field, I'm upgrading this to a 5-Star rating. It's taken some abuse, but it stands up to the job! I don't imagine the manufacturer gets very many warranty calls, but I know they are super-responsive.
#1 thing I hate about the Pelican 1510 is the handle. It flexes when you pull it along. The Nanuk 935's handle is solid. No bending, no flexing, and it has a locking mechanism to lock it in place at the half and full mark.
The next thing I hate about the Pelican 1510 are the wheels. They're hard wheels and when you roll it along, it sounds like you're rolling a jet engine along. The Nanuk 935 has much better wheels and rolls quietly.
The Nanuk 935 is a great case. It's sleek, simple, and the design is awesome. I do have minor grips. 1) The padding is overly thick along the edges. Don't get me wrong, padding is great but unnecessarily thicker padding means less space for stuff. I don't like the vertical design of the padding with the three columns. In the 1510, you had the two rows which I prefer. The padding also feels has that cheap crinkly feel.
Overall, very nice case and I do prefer and recommend it over the Pelican 1510. Now, if you guys can make some pocket organizers to attach to the lid, that'll be great.
the 935 case is smaller than i expectation....i give up pelican 1510 and choose Nanuk 935. i hope it is a right choice.
i want a water-tight case to protect my professional camera and recording and video gears.
i used to use a lock-n-lock, yes, it is good for in-room storage. but never want go trip with a lock-n-lock.
there must be solution for transport gears with very good protection. yes, the pelican is typical solution.
but too expansive..and not so good looking. and too heavy.
after research, i found the Nanuk guys did good job. they make the case into a fashionable way.
that makes people like to put gears into Nanuk case for protection.
but, there comes new problem: the Nanuk case is so beautiful that you have to protect the case itself carefully.
i think this is the biggest and the only problem when you are using Nanuk case.
but, i think it is ok. since , i am not military guy, and not facing tough work situation. i just want protect my gears.
by the way: i recommend to buy empty case. and you can buy some cheap dividers or substitutions for inside-container. that save a lot money.
although i bought a 935 with divider-kit.
