Okay, since no one else would buy one of these awesome cases and do a review here I am, taking one for the team, doing a review the best way I know how. Throughout the review I will make links to as many things as I can so if any of your are interested you have a reference as to what the heck it is I am talking about. I will also try to include as many images as I can to illustrate all the points I make and things I note. So with all that said, lets begin.
First off the preluding details: I wanted a case to hold all my gear safely, securely and in some style . I, like many others here was torn between the Pelican 1650 with the 1655 padded dividers (combo being the Pelican 1654) and the Pelican 1620 case with the 1625 padded dividers (combo being the Pelican 1624). After searching all over the net and asking among all the great people here on POTN for someone who owns this case to post some pics of it and not coming up with any results I finally made a choice and went with the Pelican 1624. I think the final deciding factor for me was the double layer padded dividers. I have a lot of little items that I wanted to store and it really looked like that top "tray" would hold nicely. I ended up ordering it HERE from B&H Photo Video and had it shipped the slowest, cheapest possible way for a total of $315.66. The case itself was $290.61 and shipping to CA was $25.05 via UPS ground.
Here is their stock image for the item:
Took over a week to get, but its here now! So here we go:
Upon getting it home and out of the box this is what it looked like:
