Pelican Laptop Case for Many Uses
by Valued Customer on August 09, 2016
 
 
 
 
 
Verified Purchase

I am a real fan of all Pelican cases! I have had at least a dozen different Pelican cases for many applications. Always impressed with the build quality and protection provided. I needed a case that was lockable in a versatile size, this was it. The usual pic and pluck foam to fit items and the option of simply removing the center pick and pluck and using the base top and bottom foam. I have yet to ware out any Pelican case and have tried! They may get scratched up on the outside and not look pretty, but the contents have remained protected and dry.

Perfect for my Ruger 22/45 and Accessories!

Very nice case, perfect for my Ruger 22/45. One minor complant and this would be for Pelican. Please dont use sticker on case or use an adhesive that doesn't leave behind so much residue.

Great box to store things wouldn't trust the lock from.

Great box to store things wouldn't trust the lock from being broken into since it doesn't seem to be reinforced with any tougher materials besides plastic but I could be wrong and I didn't try to break into it. Also I didn't test it out for waterproof capabilities or not but is good storage for trips. Wish it wasn't so big basically size of a briefcase so if you have a massive laptop you will be able to fit it

Great telescope accessories case
by Valued Customer on August 07, 2010
 
 
 
 
 
Verified Purchase

I chose a Pelican case over a purpose-built telescope eyepiece case as the price was slightly better and I could safely store eyepieces and other telescope accessories inside. The case itself is surprisingly light. The foam is pre-cut making it easy to create perfect cutouts for my eyepieces, collimator, reflex sight and red flashlight. I had to return the first case I ordered as the plastic that held one end of the handle was broken when it arrived. The US distributor of Pelican cases has been bought out and is apparently doing a terrible job of shipping replacements (July 2010). The original company I ordered from said it could be months before they received a replacement case.

1490 vs. 1470
by Valued Customer on January 27, 2017
 
 
 
 
 
Verified Purchase

Here is what I found to be the situation with the 1490 vs. 1470:If you have a 15 inch laptop, it will fit in either one, no problem. If you want a little added depth to maybe bring a power bank or your charger along, the 1490 will do it easily where you need use a little strategy and compromise with the 1470. Both are durable and Pelican known quality. To me, the 1490 just steps into the 'won't fit in my backpack or duffle bag easily' category. No big deal, but for some it may dissuade. I appreciate the roominess of the 1490 a little more than the 1470, not for the added foam protection, but for the placement of the laptop, power bank and charger. If you are thinking about the 1470 vs 1490, both will accommodate a 15 inch laptop (Toshiba Satellite) with ease, however even at a pound heavier and noticeably larger the 1490 won me over due to charger room.

Protects your laptop from falling off moving vehicles

If you're hesitating on purchasing this, don't. This case saved me $2, 000+. I'm in the National Guard and bought this to keep my laptop safe and dry on drill weekends should I need it for whatever reason. My last drill weekend, I left this in my Humvee while I had to go to a meeting. My crew had to move some stuff around inside the truck to make room and ended up setting my case with my Macbook Pro inside on the roof and forgot about it. They had to leave in a hurry and the case flew off the roof going about 25 MPH, tumbling end over end before finally coming to a rest. They quickly realized this and stopped to collect it. I met up with them a couple hours later and they told me the news. The case was a little roughed up, but didn't appear to have any catastrophic damage. I took my Macbook out and it booted right up from sleep, no damage whatsoever. I'm typing this review on the laptop, as a matter of fact. So if you need a case that is going to keep your laptop dry and will protect it from falling off moving vehicles, definitely consider this.

Excellent Product!!! Has locks built in. I used it to take my 2 firearms with me while traveling, TSA was very happy with the built in locks and I was happy to travel with ease. Is larger than I thought I had 2 firearms and 8 magazines could have held more.

Case that actually protects
by Valued Customer on May 30, 2015
 
 
 
 
 
Verified Purchase

I could throw this thing off a building and my computer would probably be fine. Rain sleet or snow whatever. One thing that sucks is the foam leaves behind little tiny pieces of foam after you pick and pluck. Make sure you clean it up before putting an expensive computer in it or else you'll get those little pieces in places that are hard to get them out. Also the plucking part was not as easy as I was expecting - Mine doesn't look beautiful like one of those people that posted a picture. DONT USE A KNIFE TO PLUCK. Just pull with your fingers. That's where I went wrong.

If you are a frequent traveller and want an easy way to protect your computer
by Valued Customer on September 21, 2014
 
 
 
 
 
Verified Purchase

Fits a 15. 7'' laptop with an external HDD, but not much beyond that. After cutting out the hole, there's about 2cm of foam from the edges so it's a fairly tight fit. The build quality is slightly flimsy compared to the next higher 1495 case, and the latches aren't quite as secure. But what you give up in durability and quality you gain in a more compact, travel friendly size. This case will meet all airline requirements for overhead baggage. If you are a frequent traveller and want an easy way to protect your computer, buy this, else buy the 1495.
