I love Pelican cases. It may sound odd, but I've actually buried two relative's ashes in this particular model. They were buried on my property, where I had expected to live the rest of my life, but just in case I moved at some point in the future I wanted to be able to retrieve them easily. Both sets of ashes were in rectangular marble boxes that fit perfectly into the 1430. Life rarely works out the way you expect, so a few years later I got re-married and ended up moving. It was easy to retrieve these cases and transplant them to a new location. Of course I had to look in side to see how things were holding up, and several paper documents were still pristine after years underground, and probably not quite below the frost line, either. I've used a Pelican cases for more traditional equipment transportation, too, mostly for field film production. These cases are tough as nails and keep your stuff safe, whether it's a $30, 000 Steadicam or your loved one's ashes. Highly recommended.
