The new Peli Air 1555 is part of the Peli Air line of premium protector cases including some of the lightest molded polymer cases available on the market today, adaptable to all purposes, and guaranteed for life!
Established forty years ago in California, Pelican Products, Inc. has since established itself as a premier manufacturer of polymer cases for civilian, professional and tactical purposes – a field which Pelican actually pioneered.
Today, the Company operates three separate divisions (Government, Consumer and BioThermal) to better serve the diverse markets Pelican sells into.
First introduced in 2016, the Peli Air line of cases has been engineered to maintain the same standard of durability as the most known Peli cases, while at the same time reducing the average weight up to 40% and offer new size selections not currently available in the Company's own classic or Storm lines.
The Peli Air line offers different sizes of cases, with additional models under development. Each Peli Air case passes the same performance tests – impact, drop, submersion, high and low temperature – that Pelican users have come to trust and is backed by the company’s lifetime guarantee.
The design of the Peli Air cases is based on that of the Company's own, highly appreciated Protector cases – which was revolutionized to cut weight without compromising durability.
As such, the new Peli Air cases are manufactured of of HPXs™ resin, the next generation of Pelican’s proprietary formula that rebounds to stress without breaking. Honeycomb structural elements that are actually stronger than solid polymer material add up to the overall strength of the design, while super-stiff "full box" sections are engineered to create hollow parts.
Some of the features features of the Peli Air line of cases includes the Company's tough double-throw latches; an automatic purge valve and a watertight O-Ring gasket to balance air pressure and keep the cases watertight; a new style "Conic Curve" lid shape that makes it virtually crushproof and dustproof; stainless steel hasp protectors and rubber overmolded handles that will withstand harsh and intense use; and a removable polycarbonate card holder with front or side placement, with the busy traveler in mind – something that goes along with the design of some of the cases such as the wheeled carry-on, overhead bin standard-sized 1535 model or the wheeled check-in sized 1615 model.
The Peli Air cases are available in several padding configurations: they can be equipped with the standard Pick N Pluck manually customizable cubed foam, or with newly-designed padded dividers with a fully-sewn tub, felt exterior and high-visibility yellow interior, making it easier to identify equipment.
Also available for the Peli Air cases is the patented TrekPak™ system – consisting of pre-installed wall sections, divider panels, locking pins and a fool-proof cutting tool. The user can just lay his or her gear in the case, measure and cut the divider sections and lock them in place with the steel U-pins. Extra divider material is provided so that the user can change configuration at will; divider panels are also available separately for reconfiguration.
Available in black, light grey, red or yellow, the Peli Air cases are perfect for travelers and professionals who carry sensitive electronics, cameras, video equipment, or other hard-use gear.
Shooters may also consider the Peli Air cases to transport firearms and ammunition, given the many sizes available and the versatility of the available padding systems that make them perfect to adapt to basically any kind of firearm, ammunition box, full or empty magazines, optical aiming systems, and the like.
If compared to their most direct competitors, the reduced weight is definitely a bonus: the Peli Air cases will keep your gear safe in all conditions and on all terrain, while making them more comfortable to carry anywhere.
The Peli Air cases are already available for purchase through authorized dealers, distributors and retailers worldwide.
