How do you ensure that thousands of dollars worth of electrical equipment will be free from moisture in the back waters of the Amazon, while sailing across the Atlantic or cycling into a sub continental monsoon?

Before leaving Australia we spent a lot of time researching this exact question. Peace of mind, robust and secure - Pelican.

+ To date no moisture or water has penetrated through to our electrical equipment. The ABS latches help create a perfect seal.

+ These Pelican cases are extremely strong, durable and advertised as unbreakable. Their motto is You break it, we replace itforever.

+ Pelican use a high density foam that has protected our equipment against the constant vibration and shock that is inevitable from cycling through the Bolivian Andes and the 4WD tracks of Patagonia.

+ Pelican cases have an unconditional lifetime guarantee.

- In a perfect world lighter cases would be better for our particular mode of transport. In saying that such specifications would lead to inferior product quality.
