Pelican 1450 Case - Electronic gear survival
The Pelican 1450
is a traveling safe house for cameras and delicate accessories.
No bad elements will ever violate this virtually indestructible case. Created
from ultra high-impact structural copolymer, this lightweight
and sleek carrying case is the ideal companion for amateur and professional
photographers who yearn to hit the road without worrying about lenses, flashes,
and other digital devices.
The ability of the
Pelican 1450 to withstand extreme environments and harsh conditions
is the result of an open-cell core and solid-wall design. Its plush, protective
interior is an oasis for digital camera equipment. High-density
foam or padded dividers guard against impact, vibration and shock.
double throw latches, a
0.25" (6.4 mm) o-ring seal, and an automatic
pressure equalization valve guarantee the case is always watertight. The
equalization valve also balances sudden changes in atmospheric pressure, so
important when transporting camera batteries and other accessories.
hardware, including hinge pins, heavy-duty deflector ribs and flanges allow this
reusable transport solution to be padlocked for security against theft. Thatís
what a safe house is for: it keeps the bad elements out.
The Pelican 1450
is nice for the photographer, too. The
rubber over-molded fold-down handle
provides a comfortable grip, whether running to catch a plane, train or bus, or
merely lifting into an overhead bin.
