Meet a Pelican Pro: Jeb Corliss
We realize that hardcore people need hardcore gear to keep up with them. That’s why we created the Pelican ProGear™ line—a line of products made for those of you whose professions and outdoor adventures require extra protection.
To help showcase the uses of our Pelican ProGear line, we started the “Pelican Pros” program. This program engages extreme athletes, adventures and explorers to share how they incorporate Pelican ProGear products into their lifestyles.
Today we’re happy to introduce Jeb Corliss, one of our first Pelican Pros.
As one of the world’s best-known BASE-jumpers, Jeb continually pushes himself (and his gear) to the limit. As a BASE (standing for Building, Antenna, Span (bridges) and Earth (cliffs)) jumper, Jeb has made more than 1,000 jumps—including catapulting himself from the Eiffel Tower and the Golden Gate Bridge.
By wearing a wingsuit during jumps, Jeb increases the speed of his free falls. All landings currently use a parachute; however, his ultimate goal is to one day be able to land without one.
During his adventures, Jeb uses several Pelican ProGear products, including the Urban Elite Tablet Backpack, Elite Case for iPad and Pelican ProGear Case for iPhone. Since these products are designed to give the same military-grade protection that our gear has provided for the past 35 years, they’re sure to uphold to even Jeb’s high-impact lifestyle.
