    Hi all,

    Portability is crucial to me, so I was just wondering about the size of the case the Alta 8 comes in, opposed to the 6.

    Both Alta 6 and 8s come in Pelican cases correct? Can anyone please advise their respective sizes and Pelican model number if available? I presume the 8 has a slightly bigger case?

    Cheers,
    Ryan

    The Alta 8 case is a beast!

    (It's a lot bigger than the Alta 6 one...)

    Thanks guys, that is a huge difference. The compactness of the 6 is really appealing.

    I'm not totally 100% sure but I think my Alta 6 (which I bought in March) came in a different case as is in the photo above. By eyeballing my case is quite a bit bigger.

    After a bit more research:

    I think the Alta 6 used to ship in a Pelican Storm 2875 case, but is now being offered in the Pelican 1640 (which is a bit bigger and heavier).
