Inexpensive Pelican Case Alternative

  1. I have one of those for my paintball marker - nice case
     
  2. Looks perfect for storage. Much better than having stuff sitting on a shelf. However, if you plan on taking equipment out in to any sort of dusty, wet, bumpy environments, I'd think again.
    That looks like what I need to store my cords, chargers, cleaning equipment, etc.

    Thanks for the tip.
     
  3. Ideal for in-home or in-office storage - or in the car. I would not advise using in a hostile environment as noted by Paul.

    If you intend to use one of these for cameras and lenses, I would rip out the supplied foam and buy foam that is designed for cameras and lenses. You never know what kind of nasty off gassing and residue deposits that cheap stufff will put on your lenses.

    You might also check for suggestions and hints among astronomy groups. That's another bunch of folks with little money and lotsa' precious optical glass to take care of.
