Pelican's new 1560 Case

Published May 20, 2005


Torrance, CA -

Taking their classic 1550 Case to another level, Pelican Products, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-impact, all-purpose watertight cases, has unveiled the 1560 Case.

As one of the newest members of the Pelican Protector™ case family, the 1560 boasts more than 2,800 cubic inches of possible storage space. Features include rubberized front and side grips for maximum comfort, as well as ball-bearing, polyurethane wheels and an extension handle (with an effortless release latch) for easy transport.

The case also features stainless steel reinforced padlock protectors for added defense against cutting and theft. For extra convenience, optional accessories such as TSA-Accepted PeliLocks, lid organizers and padded divider sets are available so travelers (photographers and audio visual professionals) now have the 1560 as a viable mid-sized case to check important equipment in.

Like all Pelican Protector™ cases, the 1560’s cell-core construction helps it excel in some of the most extreme conditions on Earth. Of course, Pelican Cases can also be spotted by the distinctive, trademarked “Dual Band” design. Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer sponge 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. As with all Pelican Products, the 1560 is backed by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: “You break it, we replace it…forever.”
