Looking for Case that Carries Two FX1's

I'm looking for recommendations for a case that can carry two FX1 cameras. I checked the above sticky thread and the one mentioned there was the Pelican 1620, but it's 26 lbs. and I was hoping to get one that is a little lighter. Does anyone have experience with the Pelican 1560?

It appears that it could fit two FX1's side by side, perhaps a little snug but enough padding to keep the cameras safe?

I'm not using this for travel, just want something reasonably rugged to tote around two cameras from shoot to shoot.

Thanks.

Hi: thanks, yes that one looks like it could work though I'm a little worried about the interior height, at about 8 inches it could be a tight fit. I will be very interested to hear how it works for you, thanks!

Thanks for the update -- so I guess the height (depth) wasn't enough to fit the FX1's?
