Peli Case FAQs

Common questions regarding Pelican Cases

Despite their popularity and widespread use, it is not uncommon to have several questions regarding Pelican cases.

As such, you can find some of the most frequently asked questions – and answers – relating to Peli cases here.

What is a Peli case?

In essence, a Peli case is a brand of plastic (injection moulded) case. It is the original case of this type and is known for providing exceptional protection against impact, mishandling and vibration. They are also waterproof and dust-tight (being IP67 rated).

Are Peli and Pelican the same company?

Effectively, Peli and Pelican are interchangeable. Peli is the branding given to the cases in Europe, with Pelican used in the United States and other regions. The cases themselves and their level of performance are identical.

Are Peli cases waterproof?

All cases in the Peli range are entirely watertight, being IP67 rated (this also means they are resistant to dust and particles entering the case too). The exterior shell and an integral “O Ring” seal provide this performance.

Are Pelican cases made in the USA?

The manufacture of Pelican cases is in the US, including at Peli’s Torrance headquarters in California and Massachusetts. They have global distribution centres worldwide, with Barcelona in Spain serving the European market.

What is the difference between Pelican and Storm cases?

There is very little difference when comparing Peli vs Storm cases. Both have particular strengths and weaknesses, so which is “best” may depend on your specific application. The features and benefits of these 2 cases are very similar.

What are Peli cases used for?

Pelican cases are suitable for a wide range of applications. Typical uses include, but are not limited to, firearms storage, emergency medical supplies, surveillance equipment, digital hardware, investigation equipment, mobile communications, service engineers, airline carry-on cases, product sample cases and even sales demo kits.

Who is Hardigg?

Hardigg Industries are a manufacturer of protective cases, most notably Storm case and a range of rotationally moulded cases (including ISP2, Single Lid, and various rack mount options). Pelican acquired the company in 2009.

What Peli case alternatives are there?

Although cases such as the Peli 1510, Peli 1150 and Peli case 1650 are all incredibly popular, many Peli case alternatives are worth considering. Options include Explorer casesNanukSKBB&W and even EXOCase (waterproof flight case).

Are there any cheap Peli Cases?

Due to their high levels of performance, established customer base and premium features, Peli cases are among the more expensive waterproof cases. If you are looking for a cheap Peli case option, the B&W or Explorer ranges may better fit your budget.
