Quote from Jlyle: "BTW, 24x16x10 is too big for carry-on."



About the Seahorse dimensions, I put the case in one of the pipe carry-on measuring templates, and it fit easily. I have flown in most sized airplanes and it has fit in every overhead (except for the planes that have no overhead...of course).

Allison,

If you have the Seahorse SE920D, its dimensions are 22.24 x 13.66 x 8.49 = 44.39.

Same size as the Porter Case and carry-on legal (size only - we don't mention weight!) for most American carriers.

I think those dimensions on the Seahorse are for the inside of the case.

UHHH....if I'm not mistaken, those are the INTERIOR dimensions. Exterior are different. Most case manufacturors don't give both, just exterior.

Be advised that a pelican case even empty will weigh a significant % of your allowable weight. They are just too overbuilt for our needs IMO and cut into the amount of weight that we can bring with us.

Storm and Seahorse cases are slightly lighter.

Cheers
James



Hi James, what case are you usng?

It looks like my Seahorse vs Pelican 1510 photos have disappeared. I'll repost them;
