Anyone use Pelican cases for storage and field work?

They are, without a doubt the most secure cases you can get... waterproof, crushproof... you name it!

The question is, are they good for field work?

I'm getting a FZ20 very soon, and i wanna se if these cases are kosher... I'm think the 1200 for the FZ20, maybe the 1150, not sure.... anyone else use them?

Werd... forgot the site: http://www.pelican.com/cases/cases.html

I use Pelican cases in my day job and they're fantastic, a bit on the heavy side in the larger models (like 3'x2' model), but protect equipment VERY well. I alsouse it for cross-country equipment shipping and have only had one incident... a wheel was damaged by the shipper in transit..... but.... Pelican's slogan.....

"You Break it, we replace it!"

...And after talking withPelican support, the courier paid the shipping and everything was made right with no charge!

I dont say it often, but i'd almost have to swear by them!

This is good to know. I need a case that can get through airport and searches.

Well, the 1200 is 9-3/8" x 7-1/4" x 4-1/16"
(23,8cm x 18,4 cm x 10,3 cm)... That pretty much fits the cam and a bunch of accessories...

But do any FZ20 owners use this case for field work? i thoink it ways like 1.35kg... seems heavy, by then again it's a freakin $700+ camera!! I want it safe... like run over by a hummer, and kicked into a river and then accosted by a grizzly bear, and STILL be able to take pictures after...

:evil:

In addition, the Pelican case makes a marvelous chapeau! Simply fasten a wide fancy ribbon (I think red would be best suited for the Pelican case) to either end with velco or apoxy, and tie it in a nice large bow beneath your chin.

Worn on a night out, such a lovely, charming chapeau as this will certainly garner attention of any would-be suitors, and make you the absolute envy of your particular social stratum!
