That said, pelican makes a killer hard case. What are you putting in it though? We use a gamut of Portabrace and similar gear-specific soft cases, pelican hard cases, Rubbermaid storage bins and regular duffel bags. The cameras are in the nicer stuff, the stingers in a duffel bag.
I agree, Portabraces are super badass. Pelicans can withstand a Cruise missile strike but they're heavy and bulky as sin.
