Pelican Products has launched three new Pelican Air cases, each deeper and up to 40 percent lighter.
Pelican’s Air case line is constructed of lightweight HPX resin. It is available in nine travel-ready sizes, in both long and, now, deep options. With over 13-inches of depth available, the new cases provide room for fragile and valuable equipment, such as drones and cinema-grade cameras.
Pelican Air cases are 40 percent lighter and now 45 percent deeper. The new models are the 1557, 1607 and 1637. All Pelican Air cases are available in black, yellow, orange and gray.
“The Pelican Air case line is a major transformation, designed to maintain Pelican’s signature concept of high-performance durability while cutting the weight out,” said Stephan Corti, President, Pelican Products Commercial and Government Division.
Available configurations offer the choice of four interior options, including the TrekPak Divider system (not available with 1607 or 1637). These feature durable, waterproof, closed-cell foam, laminated to corrugated panels to provide a fully customizable and precise protection grid without wasting space.
There’s also the Classic Pick N’ Pluck Foam, which offers a manually customizable solution for simple protection with pre-scored foam to fit almost any equipment.
The Padded Divider configuration includes infinitely customizable, protective, padded dividers with Velcro so users can change their equipment organization scheme on a moment’s notice. And there’s the No Foam configuration allowing a blank slate for custom interior solutions.
The new 1607 and 1637 cases have wheels. The line’s newest three products all boast classic Pelican case features including a watertight O-ring gasket, a crushproof and dustproof exterior, stainless steel hasp protectors, rubberized, over-molded handles and tough double-throw latches.
Each Pelican Air Case meets the same performance tests (impact, drop, submersion and high and low temperatures). Pelican Air cases are also backed by the company’s lifetime guarantee.
