this is bad news. storm cases were a great competitor to pelican, and you looked hard enough you could get storm cases at great prices.

I expect the storm case prices to go up. or be replaced by pelican cases. get them cheap while / if you can.

I have the storm case im2950, I think its great, holds all my UW gear for when I fly, and it's easy to wheel around the airport.

I got mine for around $200 with foam, you can still find it online at those prices, if you look really hard, but most retailers charge much more.

i got mine here:

At least now maybe the Pelican latches won't fly open for no reason.

Dammit, I was going to get a Storm Case sooner or later.

Anyone know where to get them cheap?

Scott: If you need a new one, Adorama is a bit cheaper than midwest at least for the empty ones and the ones with foam.

Cases 4 Less

Good prices, but they bang you on the shipping. Still comes out cheaper than other places I've looked at.
