I have the very big Peli Case 1690 with the wheels.
All the goodies on board in one place for the whole observation! :)

Darn nice selection of optical gear. We have a few items in common, but mine stand on end in a Pelican 1600:

That's worth more than my car! Maybe you should add an alarm!

Aside from both being "Mike" and both having C11 Fork Mounts, we also use the same case for accessories!

I however had to go a little bigger to house my EP's. This Plano Gun Case worked out nicely.

Great idea Mike! Which plano is that and did you replace/add foam? I might want to 'borrow' your idea... :grin:
Thanks

The Plano Gun Case was bought from Bass Pro but I had to order It as the nearest Store near me (50 min away) never had them in stock. I did find one at a different store, but It didn't have the pick 'n' pluck foam.

NOTE: The pick 'n' pluck foam is larger than the conventional foam I was used to. I'd say It's 3/4" cubes as opposed to the more common 1/2" cubes. I did have to do some trimming/shaving with an exacto knife which took me longer than I expected, but In the end It all worked out nicely.
