What are your top three Pelican products?

I love all my pelican cases so it's hard to pick my favorites but here we go.

1# has to be my first case. A 1510 roller case that was the backbone of 7 years of travel photography and 100s of airline flights. This case allowed me to pack my kit as a carry on and never have to worry about. When you truly put a product to the test and it lasts, there is something of special bond that's hard to describe. I plan to keep this case forever.

2# This would have to be the 1600 series cases. I currently have4 of these large cases with the lid organizers and use them for avariety of things on my adventure built truck. The large capacity but relatively slim height make for a super useful exterior and interior storage on my truck. The faded orange color, and white spray painted stencil only make me love them more.

3# R60 personal ruck case. I've found this to be the perfect fit formy Gopro, extra batteries, charger and mini tripod. I've added some pick and pluck foam from another case and this makes for super safe, secure and quick storage for me. Having everything I need for the gopro in one box has been awesome. I know if I toss
