I am glad to see that I still have some use for my engineering schooling. Been a long time user of pelican cases; however, in changing over to Alpa gear, I wanted to be a little more careful with my new lenses, so I figured my Phase One case would be the best place to keep all my gear. The design of the phase one case has multiple levels of padding that seem to give quite a bit more protection against shocks and falls than pelican cases with foam or padded inserts. Wanted to see if anyone else has done anything like this. While the cuts are not the most beautiful, I am sure of the fact that everything in my case does not move and is very well protected. ...and everything important fits inside!
