Most everyone here will be familiar with Pelican Products and their popular line of durable hard cases that have been used by the military, law enforcement, and civilians alike to protect our valuable gear. Pelican has just unveiled their largest Air Case to date with the introduction of the Pelican Air 1646 model case which features a roomy 6,800 cubic inches of useable spaces for any type of gear that needs protection from shock and the elements.
The Largest Pelican Air Case Ever Has Just Been Unveiled
Torrance, CA— May 5, 2021 – Pelican Products, Inc. (Pelican), the global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance cases, today set another benchmark for the segment with the launch of the Pelican™ Air 1646 Case, the largest case in the Pelican™ Air Case line.
With more than 6,800 cubic inches of usable space, the Pelican™ Air 1646 Case is built in a long/deep form factor making it perfect for storage of longer and deeper type equipment. “Logistics issues for our on-the-go users traveling with large kits can be a bit of a nightmare, so we created the lighter weight, 1646 Pelican Air case to give them a transport option that allows for easy consolidation,” said Vince LaDuca, Product Manager, Pelican Products Commercial and Government Division.
- The Classic Pick N’ Pluck™ Foam configuration offers a manually customizable solution with pre-scored foam for fast and simple protection to fit almost any equipment.
- The No Foam configuration allows a blank slate for custom interior solutions (visit pelican.com for more details).
Boasting a weight up to 40% lighter than a standard Pelican Protector Case, the Pelican™ Air 1646 Case has a pull trolley and wheels that are roll tested over 914 meters. It also boasts classic Pelican case features including a watertight O-ring gasket, a crushproof and dustproof exterior, stainless steel hasp protectors, rubberized, over-molded handles, and proven tough push button latches. Just like our classic Protector series cases, each Pelican Air case is subjected to external third-party lab testing to certify IP67 ingress protection and military standard impact, drop and extreme temperature performance.
It is also backed by the company’s legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence. The Pelican Air 1646 Case with foam is available in black with an MSRP of $450.00 U.S.
Pelican Products, Inc. is a portfolio company of Behrman Capital, a private equity investment firm based in New York and San Francisco.
The Pelican Air 1646 has interior dimensions of 32.1″×15.9″×13.4″, features press and pull latches, a retractable extension handle, an automatic purge valve that balances air pressure and keeps water and dust out, and also features a business card holder for externally identifying the case without permanently attaching anything to it.
While $450 might seem a bit steep, you might want to consider that a lot of the gear you have is probably worth a lot more than that and $450 might be a small price to pay for a bit of peace of mind if you’re handing over your precious cargo to airline baggage handlers.
