Pelican Air Cases—Everything You Need to Know

PelicanTM has a long history of making durable, waterproof cases for storing and transporting expensive camera equipment. The company introduced its first Pelican safety tool in 1976. Since then, they’ve come out with new designs and configurations. The Pelican Air Series cases are part of this newer line of cases claimed to be lighter than air and crushproof.

Benefits of Pelican Air Cases

Pelican Air’s lightweight design allows for performance without compromising durability. The cases are 40% lighter than other polymer cases, making them ideal for professionals looking to change the game. Pelican Air cases are strong and lightweight for the following reasons:

  • Utilizes Pelican’s low-density, high-rebound HPXTM resin, a proprietary formula that rebounds without tearing the material
  • The Honeycomb structure makes the material stronger than solid polymers
  • The hollow parts are engineered from super-stiff “full box” sections

Pelican Air cases are ideal for protecting all kinds of equipment, regardless of size or shape. Protector cases from Pelican are manufactured with Pick N PluckTM shock-absorbent foam, prescored into small cubes. To create a protective cocoon, the item must be placed on foam, outlined in chalk, then the foam cubes removed.

Cases aren’t always one size fits all when it comes to protection. Pelican offers a wide range of configurations besides customizable inserts to protect your belongings and valuable business equipment.
