We all know and (I hope) LOVE Pelican Products.
If you don’t know already, this company make world renowned cases of ALL shapes and sizes from wallet size to as tall as a missile. Yes, that’s right. A missile. Pelican products makes military grade cases, which are used… (surprise surprise) by the military. That’s gotta say something right?
Before I begin…
I am not endorsed by, affiliated with or sponsored by Pelican Products, or any of their competitors (if there are any). I am simply voicing my opinions on one of their products in particular. It was not given/loaned to me. I own this myself!
Now onto the good stuff…
Pelican give you a lifetime warranty on the bulk of their products (If not all of them). Which goes to say, that they have faith in their brand. They are tested, time and time again, for strength, durability, ruggedness and what ever else-ness! They are simply unbeatable to my knowledge.
I decided to have a little fun with one of my Pelican (Peli) cases. The model of this one in particular is the 1560 (with Velcro padded inserts), which is technically a 1564, but the case it’s self, is a 1560.
I wanted to take a series of images, which demonstrated a few different terrains I have personally had my Peli case go through/over/on-top of! Of course, some of these are quite extreme, but it goes to show that you really do get what you pay for with Peli Products.
The idea for this post, originated from a thought that popped into my head recently whilst lugging around the Peli case through busy busy London.
It occurred to me, that I had put this case through so much cr*p, in the few months of owning it. And it held up astonishingly, over every terrain, EXCEPT one. That terrain being… Leaves.
Rocks? No problem.
3 foot high dense grass? Sure.
Mud, water & CARS? Fine!
So this image, shows the Peli 1564 being completely overwhelmed by it’s worst enemy. The leaf monster! 😉
I just found it rather amusing, that’s all! I hope you did too 😉
So far my experience with Pelican Products (Like most others) has been second to none. Excellent all round products! I just wish they would make some sort of super cheap, yet super durable, but most importantly SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT material to make their products out of! That’s my only gripe. You’ve gotta be a muscle man to carry these around all day and not feel it the next day.
You can view all of these images, (and more) in all their glory in the ‘Blog’ set on my Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chaslocke1/sets/72157639765180896
Happy shooting 🙂
