If you are putting it in the baggage claim then I would not trust anything other than Pelican to hold my stuff, unless you are willing to spend a lot more for an Anvil case. I transported all of my gear to Mexico in Pelican cases and they arrived in perfect condition. An important consideration is the capability of being able to put pad locks on the case. All my cases had 2 pad locks when I flew with my cameras, the locks prevent the baggage handlers from opening the cases quick and taking something out, which is mainly the problem with lost equipment. They dont have time to fiddle with locks.
