These compared to Pelican Cases?

FlashPoint Sealtite Cases A fraction of the cost with similar features.

The price looks great. One thing that caught my eye is that the Flashpoint cases are listed as "water resistant" while the Pelicans are listed as "water tight". I have a couple friends that use Seahorse cases. They are considerably less expensive, and they swear by them.

I saw that as well. The purge valves led me to think they still might be pretty good. Maybe problems with the O-rings as they wear? At that price I am tempted to give it a try. I was hoping someone else had some first hand knowledge.

slight review info, with a blurb about the company standing behind them.

I might try one as a top case for laptop+electronics

Thanks for the link, it was helpful. I was considering these for use on the touring bikes. They should not see much abuse for type of riding. I am happy with the soft bags for the dual sport bikes.

Cheers,

Mike

SKB Cases. Made in USA. MUCH cheaper than Pelican and just a good if not better.

I dont see an option for searching by $ they have by keyword and by size. Or you could just click the link that takes you to all the SKB Cases

Go on CL & there are lots of pelicans & a few SKBs. Use a search engine designed for CL! Also check out "Duratool" cases via above link.
