Torrance, CA -
Pelican Products (parent company of Peli Products, S.L.U.) announces their support of the recent Invictus Games (held in London, September 11-14) with the donation of tough-as-nails Pelican S145 Sport Backpacks to more than 400 participating competitors.
Over 400 competitors from 13 nations took part in the Invictus Games, an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women. The Games focused on the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding and respect of those who serve their country. The event, championed by Prince Harry, was a celebration of resilience and passion. The Games shine a spotlight on Armed Forces personnel and veterans who have put their lives on the line for their country demonstrating how they and their families are valued, respected and supported. For competitors, it was a memorable, inspiring and energizing experience in their journey of recovery.
“Protecting the equipment of those that protect us has proudly been part of our core business for more than 40 years,” said Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican Products. “It is an especially great honor to be supplying our gear to the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much protecting all that we value.”
Pelican Sport Backpacks are built with the tough DNA of any Pelican product, yet are offered in a range of colors (black, orange and green) and lightweight styles. The collection features light rip-stop nylon and a wide range of tablet and laptop protection from Elite models with incorporated watertight, crushproof Pelican cases to semi-rigid, water-resistant compartments. The Pelican S145 Sport Backpack includes an impact-protected tablet sleeve with rigid front plate offering an additional storage option to the 21-liter main storage unit. It also features an ergonomic, fast-access/top-load design with deep-ventilated channel back panel.
