Pelican Protector Cases are made with Copolymer Polypropylene, using an open cell core and solid wall construction, which is stronger and lighter that the completion. You can tell its a Pelican case by the distinctive "twin-ribbed" top surface. Stainless steel pins are used for hinges and handles. The new Double-Throw latches are much easier to open.

ANATOMY OF A PELICAN CASE
Ultimate Equipment Protection
For over 30 years Pelican has built a reputation for manufacturing the toughest cases in the world. As a matter of fact, we invented the category. Over these years we've seen our cases used for some fairly crazy activities...and important ones too.
Pelican Cases have been thrown out of helicopters in Iraq, floated through frigid fjords in Norway and rolled over by SUVs in Tanzania. With only a few scratches to show on the outside, contents inside are left unscathed. These are minor details for major bragging rights. And that is really what it's all about. Getting your gear from point A to point B in the condition it's meant to be in: intact and functional. Because it might contain a large format camera that will shoot next month's magazine cover or a heart defibrillator that could save a person's life, you can't put a price on it.
Stronger by DesignPelican Cases are made with a proprietary combination of homo co-polymers, using an open cell core and solid wall construction, which is stronger and lighter than a solid core wall. Stainless steel pins are used in hinges and handles.
The secret is the tongue and groove fit with a polymer o-ring acting as a waterproof seal.
Cool Under Pressure
Automatic Pressure Equalization Valve releases built-up air pressure while keeping water molecules out, resulting in a watertight case that is even easier to open.
Stainless steel ball bearing wheels last longer and ride smoother. The nylon hub adjacent to the stainless steel is made to resist heat. The result is less wear and tear on the polyurethane wheel.
Stainless steel hasp protectors are a Pelican exclusive. The Double-Throw latches are smarter and easier to open: it's the classic "C" clamp design with a secondary movement that works like a pry bar to start the release and offers plenty of leverage to open with a light pull.
Custom engraved nameplates are available for a nominal fee.
Reinforced Padlock Protectors
Stainless steel reinforced padlock protectors provide added strength and extra security against cutting and theft.

Besides this 1650 being HUGE (I can fit my 1510 case inside with room left over), it still complies with all U.S. airlines check baggage size limits (by 2-inches!). However, I must say that this case is also pretty darn heavy just by itself at around 30 pounds (13.5 Kilos). So, keep this in mind because, even though physical size of the 1650 is fine for checked luggage, the WEIGHT requirements are around 50 pounds (22.5 Kilos). So, you only got less than 20 pounds (9 Kilos) before going over limit and getting charged extra!
I personally have loaded my 1650 with over 40 pounds (18 Kilos) of camera and lighting gear. All I can say is that I'm soooo glad for all the heavy duty handles in order to move this amount of weight around. And yet, once on its wheels, it's stupid easy to roll around fully loaded! The scary thing is, I have no doubt this 1650 can hold even more weight. Which would simply make it a two-person job lifting something that heavy.
So, with that said, how about I just copy/paste my review of the 1510 from last year?
I am completely blown away with the quality and features. This world would be a much better place if everything was made to this standard.
Although it's a little expensive (especially for the 1650 model), I feel I got well over 127.38% return from my investment and have ZERO regrets from finally being able to afford this size of Pelican case. I plan on this case being with me for the rest of my life.
- Outstandingly durable; I would trust my life with this product (literally)!
- Large amount of space, and I mean a lot!
- Heavy duty handles and latches
- Lockable with metal-reinforced padlock holes
- EVERYTHING proof (wind, water, sand, dirt, snow, elephants, airport baggage handlers etc...)
- Quad roller wheels are easy, durable, stable, and low profile
- Collapsible handle for wheeling around
- Lifetime warranty
- Able to carry heavy loads
- Wish logos (branding) were a little smaller and less noticeable. I ended up using some photography gaffers tape to cover them
This case features enough room for six studio light heads plus cables and accessories. The foam comes in two layers, so you can make each compartment full or half depth. I tried my best to fit the contours of the items I'm holding, and then carve out two big full-depth pockets to hold power cords and the like.
The wheels are big enough that it rolls easily over most surfaces without wobbling back and forth too much. I'm sure it also cuts down on wear and tear over time. It's a really nice case, and showing up for gigs with professional cases not only helps me get started quickly, but I gotta say, looks nice to the client.
My setup includes a 24 inch monitor/computer system, two studio strobes, one Nikon camera with lens attached, all of the power bricks, cables, and wireless keyboard and mouse.
