GoPros are remarkably rugged, so you’re going to want a case that can keep up. Pelican cases are the first in their class. These hard cases come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and models and can handle some pretty harsh treatment. They are dustproof, crushproof, waterproof, and damn near zombie proof. They are available in various colors including black, desert tan, orange, and yellow. Some cases are sold with foam, and others are sold without, so be sure to read the product description when purchasing.

A neat feature about the Pelican cases is the fact that the foam can be customized to fit whatever shape you need. Have one camera and tons of accessories? Not a problem. Just want to carry half a dozen GoPro cameras? That’s okay too. These cases are simple and straightforward, but if you decide to purchase one, you can rest assured that your GoPro will be secure and protected at all times. Besides the fact that the case doesn't contain any bells and whistles, the only other pitfalls are the fact that they are bulky and relatively heavy, even when empty. Additionally, they can be pricey compared to other cases, but different models have different price tags, so shop around a bit to find something that can fit within your budget.
