Torrance, CA -

Functionality and durability are hallmarks of the new Pelican 20QT Elite cooler, the newest addition to Pelican’s second-generation cooler lineup. The 20QT Elite features a fresh design, new colors, and injection-molded construction, decreasing the weight by up to 30 percent from previous models.

From a rowdy tailgate to a rural camping outpost, Pelican Elite coolers are Grizzly Bear Certified to withstand life’s adventures - from the every day to the extreme. The 20QT Elite holds two twelve packs of cans, or up to 19 U.S. liquid quarts, and the dual-wall exterior, extra-thick polyurethane foam core, and freezer-grade O-ring allow the cooler to do what it does best: deliver extreme ice retention.

“At Pelican, ‘good enough’ doesn’t cut it, and our coolers are no exception,” said Bob Shortt, President of Pelican Products’ Consumer Division. “Pelican Elite coolers perform to extreme standards — better than any cold locker, tougher than any icebox - and we stand behind our lifetime guarantee.”

The 20QT Pelican Elite cooler features a built-in bottle opener and is the most comprehensive mobile cold storage unit on the market. Available in seven, new distinct colors, the two-toned 20QT Pelican Elite cooler is available in white/grey, brown/tan, OD green/tan, tan/orange, seafoam/grey, dark gray/green, dark gray/white for an MSRP of $199.95. As with all Pelican coolers, the 20QT is backed by Pelican’s legendary lifetime guarantee of excellence.

The Pelican Elite coolers join the full line of legacy Pelican cases and lighting tools, including camera cases, gun cases, custom case solutions, headlamps, flashlights and remote area lighting systems. All can be found at
