The Pelican brand brags of really tough cases. We tested one — the Pelican 1610 just recently and turned us into a believer. Unbreakable, watertight, airtight, dustproof, chemical resistance and corrosion-proof — these are not labeled on the case, but they ought to be since the Pelican 1610 is all that.

The Pelican 1610 Case offers total protection for your equipment and is made of ultra high impact structural copolymetor strength and durability. Come rain or shine is child’s play for this particular case. You only worry about your personal safety during extreme conditions — caught in a sudden storm up in the mountains or falling off a ship into ice cold waters — but your camera, laptop, smartphone and smart watch are secured by the exclusive 1/4″ (6.4mm) neoprene and ABS that latches seal perfectly.

Did we say extreme cases? In case of emergency, the Pelican 1610 can carry even a heart defibrillator. There is also an automatic purge valve for quick equalization after changes in atmospheric pressure and is equipped with 2″ (5cm) hard rubber transport wheels, a retractable extension handle and multiple fold down carrying handles.

Your equipment can fit into the high density foam or padded dividers for total subjection and protection against impact, vibration or shock. The Pelican 1610Case comes with the unique Pelican Pick-N-Pluck foam that is pre-cut to allow you to customize the interior by half-inch cubes. Trace out the item you want in the case and simply pluck the foam out by hand, no tools required.

The Pelican 1610 Case is another popular rolling case in the Pelican large case category. The length and width make it great solutions for a number of different applications.
