Got a Ikelite underwater canon case, hf s11 camcorder and plan on picking up a light or two. Any recomendations on what is a good size or model Hard case for packing and travel? Thanks for your time

There are several sizes of Pelican cases available to you. You need to decide whether you want to use the case as a 'check in' case on the airlines or as a carry on. If as a check in, I would be sure it is large enough for your housing, lights and whatever else. I always put my Pelican case in the oldest, rattiest dive bag you can imagine so that no one will think there might be something valuable in there. Also tape to the outside of the case an explanation to TSA of what is in the case, This is a fragile underwater housing and video lights etc etc. It always works well for me.

If you want to carry on, you can try the HPRC roller http://hprc-usa.com/2550w.htm or the Pelican roller http://www.pelican.com/cases_detail.php?Case=1510. I travel with the Pelican 1550 carry-on in Asia, so far no problem because it fits exactly in the measurement device they have at the airport.

I really dig that Pelican case. It's nice that you can carry it on and it is really durable for transporting.
