Great for Most Applications

I should be one of the world's foremost authorities on Pelican cases, considering I have several dozen. The 1065CC case is perfect for protection of any full sized iPad, with or without Apple case. I have tested it with both the original 1st generation iPad, and also with the 4th generation iPad (late 2012 model - retina display with upgraded processor). Both have the full enclosure Apple brand case. As other reviewers have noted, when closed, inspection of the seal does not appear to be uniform, and there is some question whether the case is waterproof (meaning fully submersible), which is the expectation of a Pelican case. Because of this, I have downgraded the review by 1 star. Despite this, the case is perfect for my application. I wanted something to add serious protection for an iPad intended to be carried in a backpack. In my case, a LowePro DSLR Video Pack 250 AW, which includes a Panasonic Lumix GH3 camera plus lenses. And because I don't travel light and work out of my car, I needed something that would insure the iPad is not destroyed if I inadvertently put heavy gear like tripods and such on top of it. No doubt Pelican could have made a more robust case, but I don't know how they could have done any better without increasing the size and bulk to the point the case would defeat the primary attraction of the iPad - lightweight mobility. I'm thrilled to have this design because it fits into the backpack. The o-ring seal may not be waterproof, but it is good enough for anyone except scuba divers. Also, other reviewers have mentioned the case is a loose fit, and that the iPad can move inside. Not hardly. If anything, the case is too tight fitting. The fact that the middle bulges enough to question the o-ring water seal is an indication that there is some degree of pressure on the enclosed iPad itself, because the case does not bulge when empty. There is no iPad movement, at least not with the full enclosure Apple brand case. If anything, the fit is so close, the user must be careful to center the iPad carefully in the case in order to close it successfully.

Fits a Surface Go with keyboard perfectly.

It is hard to open some times so think it is doing a gas tight seal, at least with my tablet where it can close completely and is squished just a little bit in my backpack. Just closing it leaves the middle of the short sides open 1mm, but If you pinch them it will seal and then it stays sealed. W/O the keyboard the tablet will slide around but with the keyboard it is a good snug fit.

I use it in a Messenger Bag and in my car and at Summer Camp
by Valued Customer on September 11, 2013

I bought this case having read the reviews that some people are disappointed in how the case seals, particularly along the side edges. I see what they are talking about, but even though I see the case does permit bowing in this area (due to the location of the single clasp) I always feel a suction when I open the case, indicating a rather airtight seal. That's not rigorous proof, but I didn't buy this case intending to throw it into a lake or into a sink of water, although I certainly understand that folks do that to build confidence in the case and know its limits. But my needs didn't go that far. I bought this case for solid protection when taking trips, where bags sometimes get jostled about in the back of the car, or in the trunk. I wanted to prevent damage to the iPad in those instances. It's also good for sticking in my messenger bag with confidence that the iPad won't get damaged. I also used it to take my iPad to Summer Camp in Oklahoma, but my advice for those environments is to use a LifeProof or Otterbox solution that can cover the whole device, as camps tend to be really dusty and you can never guarantee the cleanliness of anything on a hike. If I KNEW it was going to rain at camp, I had brought a 1 gallon ziploc bag to put over this case. If I was traveling in a canoe, I would have put this case inside a ziploc or dry bag. Note - This shell is a LOOSE FIT on a naked iPad 4. The iPad 4 rattles around inside the case. I added a layer of foam to keep it from moving around, and I'm please with that solution. Adding a thin case ala Apple's Smart Cover or their poly-case might take up just anough room and create a perfect fit, but I don't use those.

Is alright. . .

I bought this hardback case to use with my new Sony Xperia Tablet in is Keyboard/Cover. . . I did thorough measuring and took a chance since it should fit. . . just fit. I chose this model because I was looking for an ''otter box'' like container for tablets. . . Currently none exist except this brand. Well the item arrived quickly and I quickly placed my Xperia Tablet in its own cover into the Pelican hardback and noticed that it didn't exactly fit. . . damn. . . Due to the molded foam inserts that pad the top and bottom of the case, my tablet would not fit. I quickly removed the foam inserts and the tablet fit with a little wiggle room. . . . not happy there, I decided to go to Michaels craft store and by a couple of 8x10 sheets of thin black foam with the adhesive backing, cut it to size and placed in the case. . Voila! Now it fits perfectly. . . . . However, before my modification to the case, I did notice that there is a fairly large separation along the sides where the top and bottom lids meet, which undermines the products claims of water and dust resistant. . If this would have been a top requirement for me about this product, I would not have been happy. My chief requirement from the product was for a durable hard case, small as possible, to throw in a backpack and that would fit my unit. I did research the next size up Pelican model 1075CC and it would have been to big and the tablet would have jostled around too much. All in all, the product is ok, although not water and dust resistant as it claims largely due to what appears to be a quality control issue with the plastic itself. Also to note, it appears that there were supposed to be rubber feet on the bottom side of the case so that it wouldn't slide on a smooth surface. . the hard plastic footings are there but no rubber feet are attached. . . another quality control issue.

The best transport case
by Valued Customer on September 06, 2015
Verified Purchase

I hate to put a huge ''armor'' case on my thin and light ipad air2, so I needed a good transport case. this one is almost perfect. After multiple other failed transport case trials, I'm sticking with this one. Its big enough to hold the Ipad air2 with a silicone skin on it. It the most crush proof of any I tried and I don't have to worry if it starts pouring while in a backpack or on the bike.

Love it! Surface Go fits perfectly even with pen!
by Valued Customer on August 25, 2018

Nice study case and fits my Microsoft Surface Go perfectly even with the pen! Very rugged and I feel the surface is very shock safe with the Pelican case. Haven't tested the water resistance yet but might some time in the future. The case empty and closed has a slight bow on the sides near the center of the seem. Couldn't get a good enough picture of it but you can see where the bow in the case is the seal doesn't have an indentation of the seating surface from the other side. But for the price and what I wanted it for it's perfect! Later I might try taking the seal out and heating the case a little form the plastic and little better when the seal is back in.

Works well with Microsoft's Surface Go
by Valued Customer on December 16, 2018

OK, first things first. This case is not waterproof. Maybe it was in some earlier iteration but the current version would likely leak when empty and if you have anything in it, particularly something thick enough to touch the inside of both halves then it will leak like crazy. OK, now that the bad is out of the way here is the good, at least from the perspective of the Surface Go tablet/computer/crossover. The Surface Go fits snugly with the type cover attached. The pen won't fit on the side, but does fit nicely between the GO and either the hinge or front side of the case. The case is fairly sturdy and feels like it could take a significant beating. It's a nice compromise between size and protection and while it takes up a bit more space in my laptop bag it adds only a modest amount more weight. When I just want to grab my Go and. . go, it is easy to carry and makes me feel like there is an excellent chance that my GO will survive when (not if) I fumble it.
