Default GoPro storage

I know some of you guys have some GoPro's for race footage (or whatever else you guys do). How do you guys store it? I saw Pelican has a nice case but I'm not really looking to blow the bank. Any cheap options that you guys know of? I've been searching google for the last day with nothing really sparking my interest.

Try SERPAC, they have a small product line that's similar to Pelican but much lower prices. They're mostly an electronics enclosure manufacturer, which is how I know about them.

http://www.serpac.com/se-series.aspx

For reference, the SE-120 case is about $20-25, the SE-300 is about $60. Those prices are without foam I'm pretty sure.

Actually, I stand corrected, that's with foam.

Aaaaand apparently GoPro doesn't think product dimensions are important at all, because I can't find any in their product literature or website. WTF..

Hm I like those. I wonder what size I would need for 2 GoPro's, all their accessories (including 2 suction cup mounts), extra cases, and extra batteries? Any thoughts? I can probably find some dimensions (or just measure mine real quick). Also I've never heard of this company before, what are they know for? Are they pretty reliable?

Which company? SERPAC? They make circuit board enclosures and things like that. They're just another enclosure injection molding company like Pelican.

I'd say that the expensive stuff goes in a foam case, cut to fit, and the accessories go in another case. Or get a big case and make lots of compartments in the foam.

Do you think any of those cases would fit everything I mentioned before? I'm not a big fan of Ebay but for this price, what do you think of this?

Yeah, that would probably work. I've never seen that brand of case before, the latches are attached to the case body instead of the lid. Probably to circumvent patents.

Hm, I think I'm gonna give them a try out. On Amazon they have a 5 star with 13 reviews. Must be doing something right. Thanks man!
