Torrance, CA · May 20, 2013
Pelican Products, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance protective case solutions and advanced portable lighting systems, today announced the introduction of Pelican U160 Urban Elite Half Case Camera Pack as the newest addition to its series of photography-styled, Pelican (www.Pelican.com) backpacks.
The U160 is a ballistic nylon soft bag integrated with a crushproof Pelican case that features the same military-grade attributes as Pelican's classic case products (including a watertight o-ring seal with automatic pressure equalization valve). The case also features a removable padded divider set to protect a camera body, extra lenses and flash equipment inside. Remove the padded dividers and the compartment becomes a travel pack large enough to fit a few days' worth of personal gear.
Additional storage comes in the form of a padded upper compartment for all manner of accessories (portable hard drives, data cables and cords, etc.) with a pocket to store a tablet. Items perfect to store in the upper compartment: Transformers and cords, lens cleaner kit, glare hood, light meter, camera battery and charger. Both storage compartments feature a contrasted yellow interior which helps for easy interior visibility.
It also includes a host of field photo-shoot-friendly features such as tripod carrier straps and multiple side pockets to organize smaller objects. For easy transport, the pack's aluminum S-curve spine and vented padding offers ergonomic comfort. A nylon chest clip and removable waist belt help to balance the load.
The U160 is available through our authorized resellers on the Pelican dealer locator map. Additionally available in the Pelican line - the Urban and Sport Backpacks, Digital Protection (Micro Case Series™ and Hardback™ Series), 9420 LED Work Light / 9420 XL, the Sport Wallet, Lighting, and the Elite Coolers.
