If you pack it a little tighter then I did you should be fine with a 1400 I think.

    Mine came with a custom cut foam from the factory.

    however most pelican cases (like Silva's above) use pick and pluck foam
    the foam is pre perforated in approx 1cm squares
    all you have to do is decide on the best layout (toothpicks or skewers placed around the item at the corners where 4bits of foam join really help when laying out and removing the foam)

    as for cutting foam - a good sharp knife is very important - i normally use sharp swiss army knife, but some use one of those snap off knives (with a new blade)
    A couple of sheets of cardboard under the foam to support the foam, and carefully slicing into the foam, spreading the resulting gap and gently slicing deeper will normally do it neatly

    I've finally starting getting some Pelican cases to store my lights. Thank you to all who have posted as I have learned a lot by reading this thread.

    My first case is a 1200 that I bought mainly because it was on sale. For lack of a better idea, I decided to try some C2's in it and will probably add some slots for drop-ins or batteries in the center.



    Then this week I bit the bullet and bought a 1520 for my classic style Surefires. The case was deeper than I needed but I wanted to get all of these lights in one case and had to have room for the 3" turbo-heads.



    Next up will be some cases for my 1" lights and Malkoffs. These cases are so much better than how I was storing my lights before!

    1120 case... was a mistake for my modest needs. Should've bought an 1150. Have since also plucked a narrow slot perpendicular to the EagleTac lights, where I can squeeze-in three more 123 cells. Thinking of buying another foam set to redo this.

    Thank you. It's nice of you to say that.

    I love the classic Surefires and a Pelican case is the ideal place to keep them.

    this may be a dumb question, but the Pelican 1060 is large enough for a single Surefire Kroma or Surefire U2, correct? I was thinking about picking up a few 1060s to store lights in individually with the foam cut to form to the light, etc.

    Alternately, can a 1060 store both a Kroma and a U2?

    thoughts/experiences?

    is the pelican "pick n pluck" foam soft at all? I wanna get a pelican 1060 and some of their foam to store two titanium 4sevens lights, but i'm worried the foam might be too coarse or rough and potentially scratch the surface of these really shiny Ti lights. can yall tell me?

    Yes the pick N pluck foam is very soft! Perfect for storing your Ti lights without any worry of abrasion. I have the pick n Pluck from lighthound.com and I'm very happy with the way it feels and performs.
