I'm looking to pick up a small Pelican case with dividers to hold some extra lenses. My 1514 is at its absolute fullest, and as such I want some "spillover" room into another case, to protect things and (potentially) for whenever I want to take EVERYTHING.

The 1450 looks like a good candidate, but it's a little short. Something as tall as the 1514 would be great, but what I found there was that they only sold square-ish cases which would be larger than the 1514. That doesn't really fulfill my needs, because I want it to be a small, complimentary case, rather than a huge, domineering case.

Bullet points:

  • Preferably 7.5" or so tall
  • Padded Dividers
  • Smaller than 1514
Does Pelican make anything like this? Do any of you guys use a small(ish?) Pelican case to hold your lenses? Thanks for any help! :)

Just curious.....why does it need to be so tall for just lenses? If you are just looking to have a small transport case....why not lay the lenses on their sides instead of standing on end? The 1454 should work just fine.

Just trying to maximize the use of the vertical space, fitting lenses vertically rather than on their sides.

Also in case I want to shove an extra body into it at some point :oops:.

have you tried going onto pelican.com and putting in the size in their case calculator? that might help you decide which case to use. you didn't mention the width or length you needed? i know they make those "file box" type cases that are deep but not very wide or long.

Thanks for the reply. The problem with that is that I don't have a width or length that I need, and their calculator (as far as I could see) needs the first two variables before it gives you the third.

I think I may just settle for a 1600 as a "throw everything in it" case, or maybe just a big plastic bin :p.

If you go to B&H, you can choose Pelican cases -> Black (or whatever color you want, just removing duplicates) and then I clicked a price range. After that I could filter by any dimension.

Wow, thanks for the help!

According to B&H, there are 11 cases that have approximately a 7" depth, though a good number of them are variations on the 1510. Nevertheless, both the 1550 and the 1600 popped up. The 1550 might be a good candidate for a "throw everything in" case, though it's not terribly portable.

Then again, for staying put a big plastic bin would also come in handy :D.
