The Pelican 1510 case is the largest of the Pelican cases that can be brought as “carry on” luggage. I had planned on checking it, but for some trips carry-on might be a nice option. The hard-shelled case is very sturdy and it is packed full for this trip. The total weight of the case and the included items is just under 40 pounds--well below the 50 pound limit for a checked bag during domestic travel. (Though Hawaii is far way from Boston it still counts as domestic travel.) The radio and power supply are wrapped in a soft towel (not shown) at the bottom of the case with other items listed below packed on top.
