This review is from: Pelican Black 1470 Laptop Case w/ Foam Model 1470-000-110
Pros: Watertight sturdy Locks built in floats in water with up to 20 pounds of gear. Lifetime Replacement Guarantee
Cons: bulky a bit on the expensive side only 3 layers of foam
Other Thoughts: Overall thoughts: Not for everyone, but if you're looking for a locking case that will provide drop protection & keep your laptop dry in a surprise down-poor, then this case is a pretty good choice.
Bought this primarily as a 15.6" laptop case. I wanted something that could survive a drop into the lake or down a flight of stairs.
Case is very bulky & will not fit into most small to mid-sized backpacks. Of course this bulk = added protection, so there's a tradeoff, do you want outstanding protection, or slim, light styling without as much protection.
I would have perfered at least 4 or 5 layers of foam, but 6 would have been ideal. Pull & pluck is great in theory, but I had to use a knife to make cutouts anyway. I also had to cut the foam across the thickness to make pockets that don't go all the way through the foam for accessories. This is where 5 or 6 thin layers of foam would be most helpful...
