Pelican Air – Super Durable, Super Lightweight

The Pelican Air range of cases has been announced recently. Apparently, they boast all of the strength we’ve come to expect from Pelican while reducing the weight by up to 40% – winner. We had a chance to catch up with Pelican at NAB 2016 in Las Vegas and discuss the technology behind their lightweight and durable products.

Pelican Air – lightweight and convenient solutions

It looks as though Pelican are set to continue innovating their lightweight case technology and, as consumers, we’re going to continue to benefit from their commitment to reducing the effect gravity has on our poor legs. With the Pelican Air range and whatever comes next, we may finally see a time where every day isn’t legs day.

The only problem with my pelis has been the weight, so… Finally!

If I look at 2:37min the lit really doesn’t look torsionally stiff!
Is this the downside of the lightweight?

Wonder why they are not the same sizes as the current line? I have a bunch of 1600’s so they stack well in vehicles and carts. Even if one case has some empty space it makes more sense to me to work like this.

The new ones are not the same dimensions as the traditional line.

Congrats on the R&D though Peli, lets see how they last in the wild!
