Pelican Protector Cases – Rugged, Tested and Trusted to Travel to the Harshest Environments on Earth

Since 1976, Pelican Protector Cases have been rugged, tested and trusted to travel to the harshest environments on Earth. Built in the USA, these cases are watertight, dustproof and crushproof and come with a lifetime guarantee.

Air series cases feature the same protection as the Protector and Storm cases, but are up to 40% lighter. This is due to the HPX2 resin body that reduces structural plastic for weight reduction without compromising strength.

Watertight & Dustproof

Almost indestructible Pelican Protector cases are built to keep your firearm, optics, camera equipment and other valuables safe from moisture and debris. The ultra-high impact structural polypropylene case design is watertight, dustproof and chemical resistant to withstand the elements, including extreme temperatures and impacts. Easy-open latches clamp the lid securely closed and an automatic pressure equalization valve prevents vacuum lock.

Inside the case, the replaceable Pick n Pluck foam set and padded dividers offer customizable protection. The foam is scored in 3/8″ square segments, so you can remove or add pieces to fit your gear.

Designed to be airline travel friendly, most models are watertight at 3.3 feet (1 meter) for 30 minutes and come with an ID tag that lets you mark your case with the DOT baggage handling symbol so it gets treated with care by airlines. And if anything does break, Pelican’s warranty is rock solid. They will send you a replacement.

Durable & Stackable

Since 1976, Pelican cases have protected the valuable equipment used by law enforcement, firefighters and medical technicians. They are also the choice of outdoor enthusiasts and hobbyists who demand a high level of durability for their gear.

Pelican cases are extremely durable and stackable, which can save storage space in your vehicle or home. They are molded with a series of deflection ribs that direct impact force away from the case, keeping it safe inside. Pelican’s hardware latches feature a Double-Throw C-clamp design that is pull tested to 382 pounds, and their automatic pressure equalization valve releases built up air molecules while keeping water out.

Pelican cases are made in America and designed to withstand the harshest environments on earth. They are crushproof, waterproof and dustproof with an automatic purge valve that equalizes air pressure, a watertight silicone O-ring lid, over-molded rubber handles and stainless steel hardware. They are also airline carry-on compatible and include a barometric relief valve to prevent damage from changes in altitude while flying.

Easy to Open & Lock

Whether it’s a large format camera that will shoot next month’s cover or a life-saving defibrillator, Pelican cases are designed to get your gear from point A to B. They’ve been thrown from helicopters in Iraq, floated across frigid fjords in Norway and rolled over by SUVs in Tanzania with only a few scratches to show for it.

Many cases have zippered compartments and see-through mesh pockets for organizing accessories, cables or small tools. The classic Pick N Pluck foam interior solution is pre-scored into tiny cubes that you can easily pluck away until your equipment fits compact and snugly inside.

Most Pelican cases have stainless steel hasps that accept a padlock, so you can secure firearms, cameras or electronics to keep them safe from theft. They also have TSA-approved locks to make airline travel a breeze. Pelican’s EMS Recharge system lets you attach a magnetic wireless charger for charging on the go. It’s a great option for video and photo pros, or anyone who needs more power on the road.


Whether you transport seismic sensors for border patrol or priceless artifacts from the Titanic, Pelican cases can be customized to fit your equipment. Using CAD design, we can lay out a custom foam insert that will support your expensive or fragile equipment, making it safe from impacts and vibrations during transit.

We also offer a wide variety of bolt-on options like document holders, skid runners or casters and tie down rings. We can even add a humidity indicator and an automatic purge valve to help your equipment equalize in the event of a rapid change in air pressure.

Adding your corporate logo on a Pelican case is a great way to increase brand awareness. We can print your logo as decals or hot stamps in multiple colors, using strict PMS print controls. We can also make your cases stand out with an etched or screen-printed label, or even a full color digitally printed graphic. These are all available for most Pelican cases.
