A case for everything.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These little cases are great. Really stand up to the Pelican name. So far they seem to be very durable and as advertised keep the water out. The micro cases come in a variety of sizes so that you can fit virtually anything you need to in them. The clear lids are nice so that you can see what you have in each case without opening them up. The yellow cases are nice if you're trying to keep your goods a secret.

Quality made & won't fail!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this for my little digital camera for kayaking & for other wet activities & I couldn't be happier! It has held up through some harsh falls & wet times. It is scratches & dinged but still work like new. Great case if you want to make sure your precious cargo inside stays safe & dry.

Pushed to the limit and back.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Pelican are one of the few cases I fully trust with anything. I have taken my in the backcountry of Alaska, plains of Africa and even used as side cases on my motorcycle. They are tough, waterproof and stand by their product. The only down side is the heavy weight; although that's what makes them so bombproof.

When keeping dry is required.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not only will a pelican case keep your gear dry, it will also keep it from getting damaged from impacts (if you packed your stuff in there correctly). I've had my 1050 for years and have always used while kayaking or rafting. Right now it is out on loan with a group trekking to the Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan. Roof of the world!

works for tubing

My family brought this waterproof case for tubing down the Guadalupe. needless to say we was glad to have this by the end. you won't be disappointed just make sure to get the right size if you're looking for something for your phone.

As advertised

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have 2 of these, the 1050 and 1020 . Great cases to carry gear you want to protect. Brought them camping, to the beach, and other areas that can be inhospitable to sensitive electronics and they have protected from dirt and water. No submersions so I can't speak to that. The padding on the inside takes up some of the space so I suggest you go 1 size up from what you think you need.

Great for watersport activitys

I used this Pelican 1020 case to keep my phone & wallet dry and safe while I'm out Wakeboarding and it works like a charm. I would definitely recommend this case to anyone that needs to keep their electronics close while enjoying water sports.

Not enough information

I wondered the same as Dori, below, where are the specs?? Am I missing something? Ultimately, I used the reviews to figure out what size I needed - I really just wanted to have a case that would fit my iPhone, iPod, driver's license, cash, etc. for when I go backpacking or somewhere else where you don't want to worry about water or sand or other elements. I decided on the 1030 (mostly because I wanted the aqua color and the 1020 wasn't available then) figuring if it was a little big, that would be alright - just more room! What I didn't know is the 1030 also completely changes shape! It's a longer, thinner rectangle, more like a jewelry box a necklace comes in, so my iPhone doesn't even fit. So now, I have a useless case. The case itself seems very nice - strong, protective, secure close - but the change in shape doesn't begin to address what I bought it for. And now I have to pay return shipping. Ugh. Would be nice to get dimensions on the description. I wish I had looked elsewhere to make comparisons before buying. I give the case itself 4 stars, but the process has been a 1 star ordeal.

Travel Soap Container!

I know this is weird but this thing is the best travel soap container you can find on the market. The 1010 fits a regualr bar of soap perfect.

Easy Access

The NRS Pelican Micro Cases are perfect for the little items like your camera that you want to keep waterproof but have easy access to. I recently used mine on a river trip for my little point and shoot camera and chapstick. My camera stayed safe and dry. The case was great because it's so easy to close when rougher water is coming up. I would not have taken any pictures if I had to deal with re-rolling a dry bag each time I wanted to get a quick shot. I definitely recommend one of these to any kayaker or rafter.

Phone/iTouch Vault

I picked up the Red/Clear, and both my Samsung BlackJack II and iTouch both fit together in the case. I had no worries knowing that these items were encased in the 1020.

Seems to be quality

Got 1020 yellow.
Durable case, not worried about it ever getting abused
Seems watertight, plan on using it at beaches/ wakeboarding as a "safety" case to keep goods in.

Bulky, but its a bomb proof case
Not sure the how water proof it is, want to submerge it and see how it goes....

Best camera case in wet conditions.

I LOVE this case. I have the 1010. It's the perfect thing to use when you're in a water area but your camera isn't waterproof. I have a small canon point and shoot and it fits perfectly in this case with little room for movement. I got this case when I was searching for a better, more accessible way to store my camera when I was kayaking. I tried dry bags but they were a hassle and waterproof electronics bags didn’t offer enough protection. This was the perfect solution. It's a hard case with a rubberized inside and is totally waterproof when CLOSED PROPERLY. I strap the case to the deck of my kayak and whenever I need my camera I just flip open the case, take a picture, and put it back. Quick and easy. I also used this case when I hiked the narrows at Zion. I attached it to the sternum strap on my backpack and it made taking pictures so much easier. It was great to have fast access to my camera in order to get quick pics of the canyons before people entered the shot. My camera stayed nice and dry even when it was totally submerged. I have no gripes with this case at all and if used properly, it will keep your items dry. The only thing I have to be careful of when using my camera with this case is to keep the camera strap in the case and not lying on the edge when it closes. Otherwise the case won't close properly. If you need more internal cushioning, I believe you can get these cases with foam inserts. Overall a great buy.

Waterproof box

This box is overrated , overpriced as far as I am concerned the latch system is not very good along with the size and design. For the price of this box I thought it would be much better designed, functional size, shape, with a better latching system. You can get a much better waterproof box now at Wal Mart which has a better latch system, clear sides,top, and comes in two more useful sizes of waterproof boxes than this Pelican box.The Wal Mart boxes beat this Pelican brand hands down but if you want to pay more get this box. I sent this Pelican box back as everything about it was wrong. I used to buy a very good brand called Click Clack waterproof boxes back when I was canoeing a lot. Bought them at outdoor shops that were high end. Wish I could find more of them as they had a good latch system on them. Check Wal Marts out as they are very functional size and designed.

Pelican and Otterbox are the two best waterproof case brands out there, I wouldnt trust any of the wal-mart crap brand "waterproof" boxes with anything. For smaller cases, check out Otterbox. Pelican's specialty is their larger cases, which i use for my SLR and medical gear.

Pelican Cases keep your cameras in order.

I have a ton of these cases in my van, but this was the first one with a clear top. It was super useful on my last Cataract Canyon trip, as my girlfriend was able to stash all kinds of things in it, and the clear top kept us from forgetting where we put it all. The 1040 was the perfect size for a point-and-shoot camera and a cell phone, leaving little room to knock around.

Keep your valuables safe

This case will keep your wallet, camera, phone, ipod, keys, and whatever will fit dry, safe, and secure. I love it. The hardshell design and o-ring lid will allow it to be submerged and keep everything safe. Dry bags will not allow this luxury. Its strong and will protect whats inside from a beating when carried in your pack.

Definitely Dig it.

I've had a great experience with these cases. I use this case for my first aid/survival kit. All of the things I need to keep dry, stay dry. I've never experience a problem. If I were gonna pack a camera inside, I would definitely make sure it's wrapped in a ziploc bag to be on the safe side. They're a little heavy, but they're great for organization. Can't go wrong with one of these if you ask me.

Decent case

I've used one of these cases for a couple of years. Typically, I keep my (small) camera in it. It's gone in the river a couple of times (and gone through several heavy rainstorms) without serious leakage. Occasionally, a couple of drops of water get in, but this is usually when I don't do a good job wiping sand/dirt off of the seal before closing it. It is lined with rubber, but to keep my camera from bouncing around I've had to add some styrofoam or bubble wrap on the inside. If I knew that I was going to be suffering continuous dunking, I'm not sure how much I'd trust it, but for adequate protection from occasional waves or storms it seems to work just fine.
