Pelican works with Military to Develops Desert Tan Colored Cases

Published September 29, 2005


Torrance, CA -

Pelican™ Products, a leading manufacturer of high-impact, watertight cases has worked with the US Military to develop desert tan colored versions of their world-renowned Protector™ cases. All Pelican cases including the desert tan have been MIL-SPEC tested in conjunction with the U.S. military, which approved and helped match the color to exact standards.

“Pelican Protector™ Cases in Desert Tan fill a special mission requirement, given the regions the US military are currently deployed to.” said Lisa Ramirez, Sales Manager for Pelican Products’ Government Division.

Pelican Protector™ Cases offer a fully stackable design, boasting nearly 14,000 cubic inches of possible storage space in the largest cases. To ensure easy and immediate access, the cases also feature double-throw latches that have been tested to 400 pounds, but open with a light pull. For added security, stainless steel reinforced padlock protector holes are included on most models.

Like all Pelican Protector™ Cases, the cell-core construction helps them protect sensitive equipment in some of the most extreme conditions on Earth. Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dust and waterproof seal, and an automatic Gore-TEX® pressure equalization valve, that stops moisture from entering the case and prevents vacuum-lock so the case opens easily at any altitude. Proprietary customizable Pick N’ Pluck™ foam is also standard in most Pelican Protector™ Cases. Of course, Pelican Cases can also be spotted by the distinctive, trademarked “Dual Band” design.

Optional features include TSA-approved security padlocks, multi-pocketed lid organizers as well as single and dual-level padded divider sets. As with all Pelican products, the cases are backed by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: “You Break It, We Replace It…Forever.”
