“We have infused Pelican ProGearâ„¢ Elite luggage with the same Pelican-tough DNA our existing customers in the military, law enforcement and fire safety industries rely on in extreme situations. It’s extremely lightweight and durable, has a sleek looking design and distinctive color line,” said Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican Products. “You can now check your baggage with confidence because Pelican ProGearâ„¢ Elite luggage is engineered to protect your belongings from the rigors of travel and just about any punishment baggage handlers can dish out.”
Designed Pelican-tough, each piece is virtually indestructible and has a double-wall polymer construction for increased durability and protection. The rugged yet lightweight construction incorporates a space efficient extended pull handle to maximize packing space and help avoid those pesky overage fees.
