If you do get a Pelican it looks to me as though you'll need quite a big one - like a 1600. But it will weigh 10lbs or more by itself and will be a royal pain to carry. I use a Pelicase as a means of checking my gear at the airport; not a way of carrying it about, and have a LowePro bag that fits inside my 1550 for when I actually want to carry the gear. I would not contemplate a Pelican for carrying a substantial outfit regularly or any distance and indeed doubt whether any hard case would result in a comfortable carry.
