Pelican Products is one of the most bragged upon brands of gear cases advertising “the toughest airtight and waterproof protective cases on the planet”. I got this size case to replace a cheaper case that I kept in the front pocket of my Maxpedition Fatboy Versipack. The case claims to be crushproof, which I can attest to. Another reviewer put that claim to the test by parking his car on top of it. His came out fine, but mine wasn’t so lucky. The case was not crushed, but the hinge cracked a little. It is still completely usable, but it’s just a little cracked up, now(but still water resistant). Pelican does not state this case as waterproof, but water-resistant. I have seen a few tests that make me confident that this case truly is waterproof. There is a pressure relief valve on the case, which means that you can carry or pack it on an airplane without the pressure change crushing the case. There are two loops that you could thread a strap through and a ring where you can put a carabiner or cord for multiple carrying options. If anyone needs a heavy-duty, water-tight, crushproof case for any gear, I would highly recommend Pelican Cases. They are available in larger and smaller sizes to accommodate many needs.

What other aesthetic options or finishes are available?: Pelican only shows this case available in clear with different color liners, but when I received mine from Amazon, it was all black. There are multiple liner colors available, like black, blue, red, and yellow. I would say “Buyer Beware” as I’m honestly not sure whether you would get a clear or colored case. There is even a version specifically for iPhones that has a waterproof headphone cable and a cord management system.
