I went with the 36L Hardigg cases because they're a pound and a half lighter (each) than the 35L Pelicans. They hold slightly more, but aren't any wider. Their latching mechanism is much easier on the fingers, but still bomb proof. And cosmetically, they're smoother and have fewer nooks and crannies, so cleaning the inevitable bug collection off of them should be easier. Durability and warranty wise, it seems to be a wash.
