I don't use the case for shipping or air travel, but I do use it for taking ALL my equipment to shoots and events.
It fits a [70-200 f/2.8 IS] perfectly if sat vertically.
The Pick N' Pluck foam came in two 4-inch sections, with an additional more stiff 1-inch section that covers the bottom, and a 1 1/2 to 2-inch section that fits in the lid to cover your gear when the case is closed.
Each Pick N' Pluck section is 1/2-inch wide, and the entire 4-inches long of the section. If the 4-inches (or 8) is too much depth, you can take the pieces of the foam out, and (if needed cut them down) place them back in horizontally to reduce depth of the foam.
The latches on the outside of the case are so solid that you can be assured that it's sealed merely by the sound of the latch closing. And seven times assured with 7 latches and two metal padlock holes for extra sealing and security.
This is a solid case and I would have paid twice the price for it.
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.
These cases are the best out there. I also have the 1510 carry on case that I use to transport my cpap, a light camera gear set, and laptop for travel for work. Along with that I also have the 1200 that I keep a Canon 6D in with a 40 pancake, an extra battery, an 85 f1.8 and a 15 f2.8 fisheye in. That is my every day case.
I lost an expensive camera/lens years ago in a canoe tipping accident and I vowed to do better to protect my gear. Ice fishing and fishing in the boat are a big part of my life. Keeping gear safe, secure, and dry are important components of an enjoyable trip. Use Pelican Cases. They are the best.
