    Pelican 1510 vs 1560

    Both the Pelican 1510 and Pelican 1560 come in a number of configurations and interiors, and at first glance can look rather similar. But there are some key differences that may make a difference to you.

    The key differences include:

    1. Size. The Pelican 1510s are as big as cases can get and still meet carry on requirements (confirm with your airline to be sure). The 1560 line is larger, and must be checked.
    2. Colours. The Pelican 1560 is available in more colour options: the base model comes in the yellow and orange preferred by emergency service personnel as well as black, olive drab*, silver, and desert tan*.
    3. Cost. As a larger case, the 1560 costs a little more.

    Both case lines have many features that are very similar - please see below the chart for details.

    Case Specifications
