    Excellent use of the Pelican case. The ergonomics and layout will provide ample protection to your Photon.
    I would have Pelican laser cut the foam to the form of the light though, you can never be too cautious.

    Loving the mossy oak Shado - but you have to get some foam to protect those beautiful lights

    Just thought I'd post a picture of my case setup.

    Two of my 'Mossy Oak' pelican 1020 and 1040 micro cases showed up yesterday and I love these little things! The Camo print on these is just beautiful!!

    Thanks!

    I ended up getting the same SKB cases that you have actually and I must say thanks again for letting me know the sizes that you have as it made it easy for me. It worked out a good choice in the end!

    The case on the right is the one that I just grab when I go camping etc. I just put either the V2 catapult or the TK45 and a ld20 in the case and off I go. Works out easy as I can just grab it and go.

    Sometimes I grab both cases though if I think I'm going to have a play.

    You're most welcome. These cases are addictive. Got a few more

    The one that is closed is still empty, waiting to be filled.

    quick question, does anyone suggest buying a pelican case if i only have 3 moderately priced flashlights. (<$50) I mean a good pelican case probably cost more than those flashlights

    thanks,

    I think most would agree that surefires look like they belong the most in a pelican case.

    If you need to be on the move and keep the lights safe and well protected... then YES!

    If you just think Pelican cases are cool, and a nice way to keep the lights together ... then YES!

    Just get a $8 handgun case on amazon... it's a pelican, minus the waterproofness/airtightness/etc, but since flashlights are already pretty tough it should be fine. I used one to hold all of my expensive lasers before I sold them, and I used some hot nichrome wire to carve out the shapes of various things I was storing in the foam.

    I suggest you buy one,although you just own a little moderately priced flashlights,as time goes on you will own more and more flashlights .

    Will a Maglite 5D fit in a Peli case 1500?

    The 5D is 43,5cm long while the internal dimension of a Peli1500 is 42,5cm, so maybe it might fit if placed in diagonal (I used this solution with success to fit a Wickedlasers Spyder II GX in a Peli1150, the foam aesthetic shape ain't pretty though...).

    Thumbs up APE ACHC5600 case

    I just picked up a APE ACHC5600 hard case.

    The interior dimensions are 17.62"L x 12.25"H x 6.25"W, roughly the size of a Pelican Storm iM2400. It's a hard-backed case and has the pick-and-pluck foam. This one is the largest of the ACHC series cases. While it isn't a heavy-duty molded case, nor waterproof, it's capable enough of protecting a collection of flashlights or other fragile items from dust and mishandling.

    PROS:
    • At 17x12 in size, it can hold about a dozen SF 6P sized flashlights if they're laid out flat along the top layer of the foam.
    • With an interior depth of just over 6", it can hold long/thin items vertically in the foam in order to save space. It can even hold a SF 6P sized flashlight vertically, if you choose.
    • The Dayglo yellow interior foam makes it easy to identify anything stored inside the case.
    • Its pricing is a relative "steal" when compared to most of the other alternatives that are available.


    CONS:
    • The construction and materials of the case are not bomb-proof, so it won't survive heavy handling like some of the tougher, more-expensive molded cases will.
    • It's not waterproof, so kayak trips with the flashlight collection are out.
    • Even the best pick-and-pluck foam isn't the strongest material on the planet, so you need to be sure to leave good space between stored items if expecting the foam to stay in place surrounding all items. If manhandled, this case's P&P foam has a tendency to separate from its neighboring "squares" of foam fairly easily.



    To hold the entirety of my remaining collection of spare hosts, heads, tails, lenses and batteries, I would need a second of these large cases. My collection of ~40 battery cells could probably fit in the medium case.

    While I would certainly love to have a small "army" of Pelican Storm/Hardigg cases floating around the house, for the money I think this basic case is hard to beat. It's roomy enough for even 2D MagLite sized flashlights, roomy enough to hold 5" long knives, SureFire 6P sized flashlights and other long/skinny items vertically so that space is saved, and yet it's tough enough to withstand a simple life around the household while protecting some of our more fragile items.

    Yesterday I bought a B&W Outdoor Case Type 61 (black).
    Very nice,big case. Cheaper than a Peli (for me ), but easier to open. I'll upload pics later this week.
