I have a Pelican 1514 that I have way too much stuff in. I have used it for for several shoots and it works good--- I bought the 1514 becasue it is a legal carry on size for airline travel--- the problem with mine is that it is WAY too heavy to make the airline requirements--I would have to carry the Mark and 70-200 like other photogs do.
I am seriously thinking about getting the 1614 (adjustable padding w/wheels)--so I can fit everything I want for a wedding shoot--- a few more lenses and flash units with pw's.
You know that's one of the considerations I want to put on the table. Which pelican case is "legal" size to carry on the plane. I see myself doing this when I travel and I was almost clear on getting the 1624 as my first and final pelican case for my gear (in my signature) with room to grow.
Unfortunately, the 1624 is not legal size. Correct me if I'm wrong and although the 1514 is legal size to carry on, you're right it can get heavy and will over exceed the weight limit. So back to square one.
What are you attempting to do about this?
In addition, between the 1614 and the 1624, aside from larger size, why not just get the 1624 and be done with it? Of course, you'd get the padded version and with wheels.
