Does it's job VERY well
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I purchased the 1150 Pelican case within the last year and so far it has been bulletproof. It's very easy to "setup" (remove foam) to fit all of your applications and if your needs change, Pelican also has extra foam inserts available if you decide to significantly change the layout of the foam.
I'm a whitewater kayaker and keeping my camera dry is paramount to me. In the past I had just used multiple dry bags and that always worked, but left me feeling a little uneasy. I read about the Pelican cases being waterproof, airtight, and also fairly shockproof so I had to try it out. I decided to order an 1150 case and I'm so thankful I did. I have never once felt like my camera was in danger of water damage. I decided to order a bright orange colored case for visibility reasons, and I was thankful for this decision when I had to bail from my kayak and my pelican case fell out. The case floated along the top of the water and I was able to catch it in the next eddy. Everything was dry as could be.
The 1150 Pelican Case is a really versatile size. It'll fit most of what you want to throw at it and even safely hold your camera. My sony DSLR fits in the 1150, but it is pushing it a little bit and squishes the foam more than I prefer. I'm worried that over time, the compaction of the foam will reduce the "shock-proofness" of the case for my applications. If you're like me and are regularly packing a DSLR camera, I would advise a slightly deeper case like the 1300 just to be CERTAIN that your camera doesn't ever take too much shock from an impact.
Overall, this product has been 10/10 in my experience with it. I highly recommend any of the Pelican cases to anyone that wants to keep their gear dry, clean, and safe from harm.

Keep in mind you don't have to have whatever you are putting in the box laid flat like in the photo. Because these boxes are so deep you lay them on their side or standing up to make room to put other things in the boxes too.
