    Default anyone seen these? Cheaper alternative to Pelican cases.

    http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/CASE535-1.html

    About half the price and the reviews seem pretty good. Anyone actually own these and have an opinion? There's only one smaller size to choose from, for $19.97

    Another inexpensive watertight case is made by Seahorse Case. These often are priced at 50% of the cost of a similar size Pelican case. I've owned a couple, and they have performed well. http://www.seahorsecases.com/

    Guinea pig -- unless of course he's interested in putting on a 2-piece bathing suit and stuffing himself inside a little oil lamp...
    I wish I could remember where I left my keys...
