Torrance, CA -
Pelican Products, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance protective case solutions, is unveiling Pelican Elite luggage.
The hard shell luggage is lightweight, watertight and crush-proof. Available in three elite models, each are built for optimal travelling size and weight: 22-inch Carry-On (weighs 9.2 pounds empty), 27-inch Weekender (weighs 12.2 pounds empty), and 30-inch Vacationer (weighs 15.6 pounds empty).
All models are available with an optional enhanced travel system that includes a lid organizer, a toiletry kit, and a zippered shoe sack. The 27” Weekender and 30” Vacationer enhanced travel system also includes a garment bag and a laundry bag.
“We have infused Pelican 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 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.
Additional features include an integrated TSA-approved combination lock, a smooth fabric interior for simple clean up and custom-designed solid-hub wheels for easy maneuverability. Press & Pull latches ensure luggage will remain secure under the stress of rough baggage handling and the demands of travel.
The exterior design is fresh and modern and comes in charcoal with a variety of trim choices (black, blue, orange, purple and red), so users can choose a configuration to fit personal preferences. The line is also available with an orchid exterior and black trim.
Pelican Elite Luggage ranges from MSRP $475 - $645 – The 22” Carry-On model is currently available for purchase. The 27” Weekender and 30” Vacationer are coming soon.
The 22” Carry-On can be purchased through their authorized dealers. To learn more about this and the entire Pelican line, visit the Elite Luggage micro site.
