Note that whenever a projector is mentioned we are talking about the Epson 1060 projector, as comes standard with the LF1 kits. We tested the following five casing solutions, from smallest to largest:
|Case||What it Fits||Price ($)|
|Seahorse 230 Medium Tactical Case||LF1 gear only||$25.50|
|Pelican 1200 Case||LF1 gear only||$54.95|
|Seahorse SE630 Case||Epson 1060 gear only||$115.88|
|28.5 Liter Pure Outdoor Weatherproof Case||LF1 + Epson 1060 gear||$87.50|
|Seahorse 920 Wheeled Case||LF1 + Epson 1060 gear||$112.32|
Each comes with foam strips that can be torn away to create compartments for equipment storage. We took pictures of compartment layouts that work well, but the foam is completely customizable so you may modify it to suit your needs.
The smallest of the options we tried, this Seahorse case will fit all your LF1 gear, but barely. The case is too small for the original adapter, cable, and mounting boxes, so the contents of those need to be removed and inserted into their own respective cavities.
This is a tight, compact solution for secure LF1 transport. The power plug adapter can be stuck into the foam to save space and time, as shown in the previous description.
This case is good for your projector, power cord, and remote. Sturdy and weather proof, it will fit in most airplane overhead bins.
28.5 L Pure Outdoor
By carefully stripping parts of the foam layers, you can create compartments for the LF1, projector, and associated cables/adapters. It is definitely a tight fit when the lid is closed on the projector, but it is rugged and will likely also fit in an overhead bin.
Comfortably encapsulating projector and LF1 gear, the biggest of our recommended custom travel solutions comes with wheels and an extendable handle. We recommend inserting some foam into cavities formed for adapter, cable, and mounting boxes so the boxes remain flush with the foam surface when inserted in their respective holes. Not likely to be accepted as a carry on.
