I just picked up the Pelican 1440 specifically for my lighting gear. I was having a lot of trouble taking my gear from the office to a shoot and needed a cheap solution after picking up the Think Tank Addicted for my camera gear. My shoulders were killing me after carrying my battery and lighting equipment which wouldn't fit into the TTA.
I wasn't sure which Pelican to get and I had seen a couple in my local shop here but I didn't like them much The travel handle on them seemed flimsy and like they would snap if too much weight was applied. That and they just didnt seem like they would hold what I needed. The ones I did like weighed too much. I needed something with good depth and something that could easily be taken with me on location.
I then saw a video on Youtube with a guy who had the 1440 and used it to bring bottles of wine traveling and I immediately went to check it out online. It seemed like it could do the job so I took the chance.
When I got it, I packed all my stuff into it and it fit just perfectly. I got the model with the padded insert. I really didn't need it but at the time I thought I might at some point want to store some misc gear inside. I would like to have seen it fit in with the padding but it doesn't. Having said that, for taking from my place to a shoot, I'm safe. It works perfectly. If I had say an AB1600 unit, that I could fit with the padding. But with the ABR800, no. I think I would be able to fit two lights and the battery in here nicely with padding. The handle on this one is awesome too. Not flimsy like some of the other models. As for the weight, with all my gear its about 48-49lbs. I think the limit for the planes is about 50lbs so thats good. Just makes it. Empty its about 16lbs. The lid organizer is awesome and I'm happy with that. I fit all my parts inside nicely.
So if you're looking for a small travel case for your lighting, and something around $150, this could just be what you are looking for.
