Pelican Cases Protect Photo Gear, Work Great in Vehicle Travel

On my last trip I used two Pelican cases to store the PhaseOne IQ4 and lenses. These cases come with many types of internal organization options, or empty*_, so there is one for just about use.

None of my usual padded cases could accommodate the lenses, the diameter being larger even that Zeiss Otus lenses—it was a real quandary. Luckily, I had on hand a Pelican 1615AirTP Wheeled Check-In Case with TrekPak Insert I had not used, but it turned out to be perfect because I could customize the internals to fit the PhaseOne gear exactly as shown below, keeping everything snugly in place.

Just received for evaluation is the Pelican iM2700 Storm Case with Padded Dividers, on sale today as I write this. What I like a lot about this case is its more squarish form factor which offers a lot of volume, yet by standing it on its side when not needed, floor or table space can be freed up—great for use in my van.

Its wheels were a big plus for the several nights I had to spend in a hotel what with my Mercedes Sprinter van being worked on in Reno—no way was I going to leave any of my photo gear in my vehicle which mean hauling it inside—super easy with the Pelican case. I also used a smaller case also, which was also excellent.

Below, variations of the Pelican 1615AirTP I used for the PhaseOne gear, and a few others.

*While not rated bear proof, most are lockable and would be a good way to store food to be able to quickly remove it from a vehicle, and stow inside a bear locker in one case—fast and easy.

Such cases are easy to move around, and when items are snug, can be turned on their sides to free up floor space, a huge plus for travel in my van (driving vs actively doing stuff in the interior). They can also be tied down or at least secured for the unlikely even of an unplanned interaction of the van with other solid matter.
