Are you planning a vacation soon? Need to head somewhere in a flash? What will you take, and how long will you be there? Whatever the travel plans, you will apply at least some research (the best routes to take, where to stop to eat and sights to see, for example). This same process though also should apply to the luggage you bring along for the ride! Thankfully The Case Store has Pelican luggage to suit a wide variety of your travel-based needs.
Offered is a range of case sizes and functions, from carry-on style to check in luggage bags. Many times, the cases we touch on in this article do include in-line wheels and retractable handles for ease-of-use and transport. Additionally, while we carry a selection of Pelican™ Air cases with TSA locks built in, this lock guide will help you find the right lock for your other Pelican cases.
Whether you’re a professional photographer traveling overseas with your camera gear, or a researcher going on a deep-sea dive, Pelican cases protect your equipment from planned and unplanned scenarios. With business travel picking up and summer planning getting underway, let’s proceed to break down some of our favorite Pelican cases for travelling!
Let’s dive right into carry-ons. For starters, versions include Pelican™ Air and Pelican™ Protector case models. Pelican™ Air model cases are of the most recent upgrades to the Pelican lineup. TRVL series cases have a tough-as-nails exterior (a Pelican™ norm), with added versatility in the form of including a lid organizer, with individualized compartments for stowing various size items. All the following are backed by the Pelican Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee, and are waterproof, crushproof and dustproof. These cases are less than 45", meeting airline carry-on regulations (in essence optimized for overhead bin storage):
- Pelican™ Air 1535 Travel Case- Lid organizers have zippered compartments for stowing a variety of items, and utilize see-through mesh pockets to secure passports and cables.
- Pelican™ Air 1535 Carry-On Case- The lightest polymer case on the planet.
