Pelican Air: The lightest premium Protector™ case on the planet.

Sensitive equipment needs protection, and since 1976 the answer has been the Pelican Protector Case. These cases are designed rugged, and travel the harshest environments on earth. Against the extreme cold of the Arctic or the heat of battle, Pelican cases have survived.

Made in the USA, these tough cases are designed with an automatic purge valve that equalizes air pressure, a watertight silicone O-ring lid, over-moulded rubber handles and stainless steel hardware. Our simple and strong double-throw latches keep the lid closed in the roughest handling.

So if you’ve got a camera that needs to stay dry, a gun that needs to stay dust-free or a laptop that has to work when it’s needed most- go with a Pelican Protector Case wherever your adventures take you.

At up to 40% lighter than other polymer cases, PelicanTM Air cases will lighten the loads of the dedicated pros across the world who have set out to change the game.

PelicanTM Air cases are the first in a series of remarkable innovations engineered by Pelican, the pioneers of protective cases. For over 40 years Pelican has designed and crafted the most influential protective cases in the world, and we’re just getting started.

With the launch of the PelicanTM Air line of cases, we’re redefining the future of protection with a remarkable union of light and tough. 

The Science Behind Strength and Lightness

The PelicanTM Air case has been designed to cut weight without compromising durability.
Our engineers have revolutionized the protector case by reducing structural waste while preserving Pelican’s legendary standards of strength. In development for years, the design team challenged the status quo to “add lightness” in every detail.

Here are some important reasons why PelicanTM Air cases are both strong and light:

  • Moulded from the next generation of Pelican’s lightweight HPXTM resin, a proprietary formula that rebounds without breaking
  • Honeycomb structural elements that are actually stronger than solid polymer material
  • Super-stiff “full box” sections engineered to create hollow parts

UP TO THE TEST

It wouldn’t be a PelicanTM case if you couldn’t drop it, kick it and run over it – and the PelicanTM Air case is no different.

  • Drop-tested on concrete with loads from six feet on all sides and corners
  • Submerged for 30 minutes at a depth of one meter
  • Wheels are roll tested over 1,000 yards with loads at 5 mph
  • 28 lb. steel dart dropped on all sides from 3 feet
