I think this was discussed before and I thought I had it bookmarked but guess not. Which Pelican have you guys used for carrying around a 600-800 set?

Getting annoyed with carrying around the bird cage and the handle not very comfortable. Prefer to just get it over with and get a full blown “chip suitcase” for taking them around.

3800 for 600, 4800 for 800. You might be able to squeeze 800 into a 3800, but you won’t have room for much else.

Edit: you asked about Pelican, I answered in Apache models. Disregard.

No worries, I actually figured it out soon as I saw the model numbers since I recognize both. I’ve never seen an Apache in person and I think it’s only fair if I do prior to making decision.

The Apache 3800, Pelican 1450 & Members Mark 16" (out of stock) are all relatively the same interior dimensions. Perfect for 600-800 chips. Only benifit of the Pelican is the name and slightly better P&P foam. IMO not worth the extra cost as compared to the Apache or MM (out of stock) cases. All 3 provide protected chip storage.

Here is my layout for 800 chip in a MM 16" fits 800 plus room for card setup and DB's if needed.

Zaki bro, buy a bright color either orange or yellow Apache 3800 off Harborfreight.com if you don't have a local store... save the money these cases are amazing!!

Nanuk 920 is perfect for 8 racks (800 chips) and more economical compared to Pelican.
B&W is an even more economical (yet serious) brand but I 'm afraid it's not a choice in the New World.
Apache cases seem to be the best value-for-money bet in North America.
Not sure why you would have to go Pelican in the Americas if it's just for clay chips.

I am currently using a Pelican 1495 to carry 700 chips. I also have room for a couple decks of cards.

After seeing pics and examples, that’s what I’m doing. The orange pleases my eyes with my obsession with blaze orange! Sick case.

Thank you to everyone that contributed this thread. My old wooden case is falling apart and now I'm looking into reusing an old Pelican case (1450) that I have in the garage. Thanks :)
