About Me Recreational Diver
Comments about Pelican 1600 King Watertight Hard Case with Pick 'N Pluck Foam:
Great case for photo equipment. I was able to put two complete camera systems in this case. Provides good protection for my photo gear. I own the Sealife DC500 and DC1000 Elite and was able to put all of it in this case.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Professional Diver
I made an Oxygen First Aid kit containing Jumbo "D" Oxygen Cylinders, an MTV & BVM for dive trips. It's waterproof, so it's perfect for water-side.

I use it to carry underwater housing for a DSLR camera. I have no problems putting the case through the luggage handlers - it puts up with a lot and the housing is untouched. Hi viz orange stands out like a sore thumb, so you can see when it is being put on the plane and taken off!

Too big for Carry-on
By Rich Schwartz of RJS Photo Images
from Woolwich, Maine
This is a great case for packing your underwater photography gear, laptop or any other high end gear that you want to arrive at your destination intact. Pick-n-pluck foam is the best way to customize interior to suit your needs. You can fit a bunch of gear in this case. I very much like the positive cam-latch feature and the two reinforced holes for locks. All in all a sturdy case with tons of room.However it's size is it's achilles heel. On a recent trip to Hawaii on United Airlines, this case was too big to meet requirements for carry-on items (22"x14"x9" or 45 linear inches total -Length+width+depth). In practie, it did fit in the overhead bin of a Boeing 717 (Hawaiian Airlines inter-island flights)and center bin of a 777 but would not fit on a CRJ7 (regional commuter). UAL allowed it as carry-on on the flight from Chicago to Honolulu (777) but would not allow it on the return (also a 777). The bottom line is that it depends on the mood of the airline employee at the ticket counter/gate.Thus, if you are as paranoid about you photo gear as I am you may want to opt for a slightly smaller case - such as the Pelican 1520.
