Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice case; may be expensive Nice case, but I ended up returning it and going with one from Outdoor Products that I got at Walmart for about $6 that was about the same size. I'm guessing the Pelican case is probably better quality in a variety of ways, but I felt the less expensive case would be sufficient for my needs. If you are doing more rugged activities that carry much risk of ending up with the case in the water, you'd want to investigate more to determine likely performance in demanding situations. The case did not seem expensive to me if it provides good protection for expensive electronics in demanding situations, but I'm not doing more rugged things than flatwater canoeing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Pelican 1040 Micro Case is not waterproof If you search the Pelican 1040 case on the REI website. It comes up under the category of: "Paddling > Paddling Bags and Cases > Waterproof Cases" If you fail to click on the product "Details, Tab", REI states: Offering outstanding protection to your valuables, this case is water-resistant, dustproof and has an automatic pressure purge valve. In researching Pelicans website, they specifically state: Micro cases are not meant to be used while swimming and shouldn't be submerged. I feel that is easy to assume that the Pelican case is waterproof on the REI website. Sadly the case is not waterproof. Over the weekend my wife used the Pelican 1040 Micro case to store her smartphone. The case became submerged in a couple of inches of water. When she opened the case, she found water and her smart phone was ruined. Ouch!!! I will be returning the case to REI for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Get What You Pay For I am a student and my backpack is an extension of myself. It carries the things I use every day, sometimes, and things I hope not to use. I have several Pelicans, and prefer them over "other" waterproof boxes, due to the quality and functionality (especially the latch). I use this Pelican for my backpack first-aid kit. I originally had my first aid stuff in a soft-shelled organizer, but the supplies were deteriorating from getting squished. Yes, Pelicans are heavy, and it would be lighter to put my supplies in a simple plastic box, but I choose the rugged Pelican. It can rest at the bottom of my pack getting thudded on the ground and packed upon from above, and I know both the container will last and the contents inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sealed and protected i'm a photographer and just recently got a gopro hd camera for snowboarding trips. i used this for my external power supply to recharge the camera. this was the perfect size for the external battery and this sealed out any moisture or water or snow. i carried it inside my backpack and used the carabiner to attach to inside strap. i also used it to hold my memory cards for my dslr. great protector.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for keeping phones dry and sand free at the This case was able to hold both an iPhone 5s and a Samsung Galaxy 5 with room to spare. The only thing that could have been better would be to have a larger, more robust carabiner...the one provided (and the hole for it) were not big/strong enough

Does it float?

Asked by: Jackiedee
The Pelican Micro Case 1040 is not designed with floatation as an intended feature. Floatation may occur, however, depending upon how much air is sealed in when the case is shut.
