Recommend good hard case for equip

I need a "hard case" to large enough to hold two camcorders (XHA1 and VG-20) plus NEX 5N and accessories to include lenses,batteries etc.

Plastic or metal. Im looking for a good price and good protection for equipment.

Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Jeff

Pelican 1620. Plastic.

Pelican 1620 Case with Foam (Olive Drab) 1620-020-130 B&H Photo

You can get it in black for $15 more. This case is huge. Should easily hold both cameras and accessories.

Good price and good protection rarely go together. Pelican cases are great and reasonably priced, I think they are still made in the USA and they hold their value. Check eBay and maybe you can save some green on a quality piece that will protect your stuff. In addition to Pelican cases, I have some SKB shells that I made custom interiors for using foam from a camping bedroll and rubber cement. But that was for tripods, stands, and lights not cameras. YMMV

Porta-Brace makes some hard cases that are a bit lighter than Pelican.
