Got this case to have a convenient way to store my photo equipment during our international move to Germany. It fits the bill perfectly. As of now it holds the following: Canon Vixia Camcorder, Olympus PEN E-P3 body, Olympus OM-D E-M5 body, M.Zuiko 14-42 mm, M.Zuiko 40-150mm, M.Zuiko 45 mm f1.8 with Olympus lens hood attached, M.Zuiko 60 mm f2.8, and the small flash that came with the OM-D E-M5. There is still room for a bit more equipment, see my uploaded picture.
The case itself is lightweight and lockable. Probably would not withstand any serious impact but for my purpose it works very well. Beats having to lug around and keep track of several camera bags! Recommend as a compact storage solution.
This case is not travel ready. Just one one-way trip via airplane check-in was enough to "do in" this case. The front face of the case is cracked and the pins that hold the lock together on the right side looks like its bent and about to un-hinge. I need to travel with the case for the next two weeks and definitely can't trust it in the condition it's in now. It did manage to keep the contents safe, but the price was not worth what is effectively a one-time use.
I was hoping this case would be a solution to my problem, not an addition to it.
Using it as a carry on: If the feet an handle where just a little smaller it would be, with out the wheels, within the 22"x14"x9" Standard however; it is only about 1/4" over... might be ok. The Pelican 1510 carry-on is a better choice if it will fit what you need. The big plus this case has is that its interior space is about 25% bigger than the 1510 and if you need that space this case may be an option.
Quality of the case; The case itself is not as strong as I would like but I think it will be OK. The case is made in China and is low price at the cost of quality. The problem is that the Pelican case is not that much more and looks to be much higher quality. The hinges and fasteners are lower grade. The sides will flex with a little pressure, not sure how much weight they would handle but I would not stand on it. When you fill it up, so that the top foam is pressing against the contents, the lid when closed bulges and doesn't fit well to the bottom...
