The week after SKB Cases with Think Tank photo dividers launched, David arrived at PressCamp with one filled with bodies and lenses for the shoot. I just happened to have my Pelican 1510 Overnighter and we compared notes. The SKC is pretty much a version of a Pelican, for a bit less, and offers the flexibity of dividers with a button-release handle compared to the release slide the Pelican uses.
The SKB Cases 31-2011-7DZ hard-shell case featuring Think Tank Photo dividers, part of the Flyer series, in use on a recent photo press event in Utah (also called the iSeries 2011-7 With Padded Divider at some retailers).
Inside of the 1510 Overnighter, I made my own dividers pulled from one of the umpteenth camera bags I have. I like the organization of the 1510 with the removable laptop holder and cord organizer.
The SKB and Pelican do the same thing, a bit differently, and you’ll not go wrong with either one. For me, since I have a 1510 happy to make dividers for it each time, but the SKB is more flexible if you’re buying new.
The integrated wheels roll well, and a built-in handle lever, found conveniently on the top of the handle, made it easy to go from plane to jetway. A secondary side handle allows the bag to be lifted either horizontally or vertically.
