Top 5 Pelican Cases for Travel

August 28, 2021

Pelican™ cases are synonymous with protection. Whether NASA needs to transport a robotic arm across the country for the Perseverance Mars Rover or if you’re a professional photographer traveling overseas with your camera gear, Pelican cases can protect your equipment from planned and unplanned scenarios. With summer travel underway and business travel picking up, we’re all ready to upgrade our traveling transport solution. This blog post breaks down some of our favorite Pelican cases for travel.

Pelican™ Air 1535TRVL: The TRVL (Travel) iteration of the Pelican™ Air case is one of the most recent upgrades to the Pelican case lineup. TRVL series cases have the tough-as-nails exterior of a Pelican™ Air case, with an added versatile lid organizer with compartments for stowing larger items and see-through mesh pockets to secure passports and cables. These cases also include packing cubes that keep gear tightly bundled and allow you to arrange it by stacking or grouping side by side. If you are looking for something more structured, you can remove the packing cubes and replace with optional TrekPak™ dividers to travel with both your personal and camera gear in one case.

At just under 18lbs. with interior foam, the Pelican™ Air 1615 case is the largest case that can still be checked as normal luggage through most commercial airlines. This case can be maximized by adding the TrekPak™ interior organization system. Our Pelican Pro team members regularly use this model to combine equipment that would normally need to be protected by two Pelican™ 1510 Carry-On cases into one case.

Pelican™ Air 1745 Case: We’ve stretched out our line of Pelican™ Air cases, so now you can protect your long equipment inside the world’s toughest and lightest case. At 44” long with built-in wheels and 40% lighter than other polymer cases, the Pelican™ Air 1745 case keeps you rolling and provides the perfect leg room to protect survey equipment, firearms, camera tripods and other lengthy equipment. AND ARCHERY TOO with our special 1745BOW configuration!

With 8” of internal space and available with two layers of customizable standard issue Pick N Pluck™ foam, the Pelican™ Air 1745 is one of our deeper long case that provides the option to stack multiple items on both bottom and top layers or just use the top layer to nestle long individual equipment.

Pelican™ Cargo Case: Be prepared for any adventure with the new Pelican™ Cargo case collection. Pelican™ Cargo cases are the perfect solution to keep your valuable gear, clothing, tools, and even dry food organized, secured, and protected. Built with the same legendary performance and quality Pelican is known for, Pelican™ Cargo cases are extremely durable, weather tested, and feature a limited lifetime guarantee (cases only). Ready to mount and protect, Pelican™ Cargo cases can be attached to your roof rack, truck bed, or stored in your SUV.

Pelican 1075/1085/1095 HardBack™ Laptop Case: Sometimes, all it takes is one drop to ruin your tablet or laptop computer (along with your music, photos and files). With that in mind, HardBack™ series cases are built with all the legendary features of a Pelican™ case - crush resistant, watertight and an automatic pressure equalization valve that prevents vacuum lock to make it easier to open at any altitude.

With all these great options, Pelican can protect whatever essentials you need to travel with. Head over to the Pelican Shop to check out all the latest cases that will help make your next traveling experience protected, easy and secure for years to come.
