PROS: I purchased these as an option alternative to a traditional "ammo can". I use these to store and transport ammo. I comparison to my other cases which are BOYT, I have to say I am very impressed. The foam that is included is set up in multiple layers and would be very easily customization for any type of equipment. The handles are sturdy and the clasps are tight fitting.
CONS: The one only gripe I have, and this one just blows my mind on how they designed such a good case and didn't see the importance of this. The top and bottoms do not interlock for secure stacking. In fact they are actually opposite of secure. Its like the person that designed the top and the bottom didn't get along on purpose. I own 12 of these. I bought 7 at first and was highly depressed when I got them loaded and started to stack them and noticed they were not secure...I wouldn't say I would recommend against them, but I would rethink my project if I would have known they did not stack well. My only con, but it does bother me.
I just received two of these cases today. I purchased one to store my trackball and iLok for when I travel to commercial recording studios and the other as a backup for anything I feel worthy of putting in there. I'm super impressed with the build quality of these cases. I've used Pelican cases many times, and these are absolutely on par with Pelican products. The pull and pluck foam is easy to work with and well perforated. I'm hoping that the larger size cases are made to this quality. If so, monoprice is going to get a lot more of my money (as if they haven't gotten enough of it already).
PROS: Tough plastic, strong latches, nice rubber gasket and foam.
CONS: The only thing I can think to gripe about is that the pluck foam is only perforated vertically, which means that when you pull segments out, they pull from the entire height of the foam block. This means that you can't form the foam in varying depths throughout the block.
very very nice case for the price as compared to the other company ). the customizable foam is thicker than pictured or as it appears to be pictured. the pressure release valve is manual and the two holes for pad locks are 1/4 inch if you plan on putting locks they need to have smaller shackle. I threw mine at the floor with items inside and they survived so I am going to order more as needed and save major cash!
Weatherproof Polypropylene Case with Customizable Foam - (10620)
Just received the Weatherproof Polypropylene Case, another great buy from Monoprice. With all the pros mentioned the case has the ability to be locked and the foam is prescored to make whatever you choose to store in it a very nice fit. A camera body (less grip) fits well and will provide more than adequate protection. Very satisfied.
This is a great case, comes with perforated foam to customize for your needs and costs much much cheaper than pelican. The quality is great, i have bought 3 of these cases at various sizes. Only one of the cases is a little hard to open, the snap locks can be a bit tight and hard to open, but at this price, its not a deterrent for me.
I can't speak as to how it will hold up to weather because i don't plan on leaving these outside or in the rain, but they do have a rubber o-ring type seal around the lid of the case. These went on sale at 12.99 and i bought one and was happy, then they went to 8.55, what a steal at this price if you can get one!!
