SKB iSF2U Studio Flyer

The first step in going “ATEM carry-on” was deciding what case to start with. This would ultimately determine available rack space / what we could fit in. After plenty of research, the final decision was with the 1SKB-iSF2U Studio Flyer:

  • Waterproof
  • Lightweight
  • 2U size
  • Quiet wheels
  • Innovative telescoping handle
  • Front and back panel covers
  • 19″ x 11″ laptop area
  • Four holes for laptop cords in/out of the case
  • Velcro tabs for securing a laptop in place
  • TSA latches
  • Unconditional lifetime warranty

The handle might be a favorite part. Being Pelican exclusive for a decade, the handle release is a fantastic feature. It’s no longer a two handed operation to get the handle to slide up or down! The SKB lid comes off followed by the side panels to reveal the nearly 12″ rack depth compartment. It’s clean, sleek, and wonderfully efficient. Downside? It doesn’t instill much confidence. Those Pelicans have served a decade without fail. The SKB fell off the transport cart from about a height of two inches, and the panel cracked (see below photo). Though SKB cases come with a lifetime warranty and will replace equipment that breaks inside the case, this was disappointing.
