Pelican cases, whether Storm or standard, are very pricey. It was very hard for me to justify the cost, but I found a great deal and I am very satisfied with my purchase. Reviews all say, if you want the best, Pelican is it. Closest second is a very far cry, but less than half the cost. Weigh the cost of a Pelican vs. the need to keep your valuables safe within it. I would just use a cardboard box for a bag of marbles, but for a $2, 000 telescope there is no question. Pelican is the way to go.
