When it comes to protecting your camera equipment, one case has become the industry standard for production professionals, the Pelican Case. To honor this achievement, we want to take this opportunity to explore the far reaches of the production world and see which cases are being used, how they are protecting essential creative tools and who is leveraging them.
Here are a few of our most popular Camera and Production Equipment cases produced by Pelican Products, Inc.:
#1 The Pelican 1510 Protector Case: Perhaps the most legendary of all Pelican Cases, the Pelican 1510 Protector Case has been one of the most widely adopted and dependable cases for traveling with your camera gear for the last two decades! This case’s ability to protect equipment from the elements for literally decades has earned it a special place in the hearts of production professionals throughout the world. Combining this dependability with its airline carry-on size makes this case one of the most popular in the company’s history. And this popularity has driven the innovation of many great personalization possibilities, as you can see from the available accessories listed below:
#2: The Pelican 1535 Air Case: The natural evolution of the super-star Pelican 1510 Protector Case, is the Pelican Air 1535 Case features the same carry-on size, with a reduced weight of 40% - making a huge difference, considering the lifetime guarantee of these cases means they last for many, many years. Just like its older brother the 1510, the 1535 Case features a number of interior organization choices such as standard Pick N’ Pluck Foam, Padded Dividers, a TrekPak organization system, a TrekPak + Foam Hybrid, Lid Organizers, and Pelican’s new MOLLE quick-release lid panel system. All of these choices ensure our customers have the freedom to personalize this best seller to their specific protective needs.
#3: The Pelican 1560SC Studio Protector Case: Perhaps the most robust of the rugged Pelican Case Line, the Pelican 1560 Protector Case was originally deployed with the military for active duty overseas. Well, traveling creatives took note, and the Pelican 1560SC Protector Case was created by taking the tested and true Pelican 1560 Protector Case and adding padded dividers and a laptop storage pouch into the lid recess.
#4: The Pelican 1615 Air Case with Padded Foam or TrekPak inserts: The largest sized checked bag allowed with most airlines without paying oversize fees, the Pelican 1615 is a lightweight powerhouse, capable of protecting a truly incredible amount of equipment (interior dimensions 29.59 x 15.50 x 9.38 in).
As noted in some of our most popular cases above, one innovation that has really marked a milestone in interior case organization is the availability of TrekPak padded dividers within an extended number of case models. With our exclusive TrekPak system you can kit out your case with the precision your equipment deserves. At just 7/16” (1.1 cm) thick, these rigid panels form a precise grid of protection without wasting any space. Together with the included 1” (2.54 cm) bottom foam and convoluted lid foam, the TrekPak system forms 360-degrees of protection and organization inside your Pelican case.
The other notable benefit obtained by utilizing a TrekPak interior is the ability to rearrange your interior layout again and again. Each photoshoot or production has its own specific needs and required equipment, with the rearrangeable interior each job’s gear list can be seamlessly integrated into your case with no wasted space or room for critical gear to get jostled.
Did you know that Pelican also makes customized professional drone cases? Pelican aligned with one of the UAV industry's most respected drone makers, DJI™, to engineer the ultimate drone transport cases. Now you can move with peace of mind through grip trucks, airports, and construction sites, as well as remote, action-packed movie sets, with your fully outfitted drone intact and unscathed.
Drone equipment demands perfection and with precision cut foam your drone equipment will be safely nested from the outside world. Black polyethylene foam is sturdy, resilient, and can absorb shock from internal drone movement. Plus, the contrasting-red foam allows you to quickly identify your gear and is resistant to grease, dirt, and water. See our entire line of Drone Cases here.
On set, on location, around the globe or in-studio - there is no replacement for the peace of mind that comes from having your creative tools properly protected within a Pelican Case and an optimized interior. Whichever case and interior you choose, share your case that’s #BuiltToProtect your creativity with us on social media so we can share your personalized creation far and wise.
