Pelican Products 1560SC and 1510SC Studio Cases are legendarily tough, watertight cases designed for photography and video production professionals who want to protect their laptops, lenses and any sensitive equipment and not waste time at the airport luggage carousel.
The 1560SC and 1510SC lids feature a detachable neoprene laptop sleeve and accompanying accessory pouch that gives travelers immediate access at Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoints and accommodates the vast majority of laptop computers up to 15.4in (1510SC) and 17.4in (1560SC). Both cases offer a main compartment with padded dividers for infinite customization and are also available as the 1510LFC and 1560LFC (laptop foam cases) with standard Pick N Pluck foam in the base for a precision fit.
The dimensions of the 1510SC are compliant for most airline overhead bins with nearly 0.027m3 of usable internal storage space. The 1560SC is based upon the maximum overhead bin size allowed by some airlines (check individual airline websites for updated requirements) and offers nearly 0.047m3 of internal usable storage space. Both cases sport stainless steel ball bearings, polyurethane wheels and an extension handle (with an effortless release latch) for easy transport, as well as rubberized front and side grips for maximum grip comfort. They also feature stainless steel, reinforced padlock protectors to defend against cutting and theft.
Like all Pelican Protector Cases, they both have an open cell-core construction that helps them protect sensitive equipment in some of the most extreme conditions on Earth. Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dust and watertight seal, and an automatic pressure equalization valve that stops moisture from entering the case, preventing vacuum-lock so the case opens easily at any altitude. To ensure easy and immediate access, the cases also feature double-throw latches that have been tested to a failure threshold of nearly 181 kilograms, but open with a light pull. Of course, Pelican cases can be spotted by their distinctive, trademarked ‘Dual Band’ design. The 1510SC, 1510 LFC, 1560SC and the 1560LFC are available in black or desert tan and are backed by the ‘Pelican Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence’.
