I recently got a Pelicase 1535 (the newer Air variant of the popular 1510) with the Trek pac inserts and ThinkTank lid organiser to replace my ThinkTank Security V2 as I’ve had a couple of issues in the past with its size (56x35x23) and over zealous gate staff.

But man the 1535 is just too small. Not sure I can use it :-(.

As seen from the photos above you have to almost strip the housings down to to get them to fit.

I need something that is 22cm deep to take the Inferno housing standing up otherwise it takes up almost all the 1535 alone. I’ve had a couple of CineBag camera bags but if I’m honest apart from their newer UW series, their bags are pretty poor compared to ThinkTank or Tenba.

I have Nauticam D500 which is 9.4'' height and 13.7'' width. no hard case or soft case is enough for this. 

So when I traveled from Israel to Mexico, I just carried housing with the 9'' heavy glass dome with a weapon strap.

camera in the housing

there are no rules for camera weight when it's on you.

5 flights, Internal and Trans Atlantic. no one ask any question.

I just padded the dome with thick bubbles nylon

it's ok only when you go directly to diving safari. not recommended for long trip
