Pelican Cases - The World’s Toughest Protective Case Option
Peli watertight, impact resistant hard cases, with manufacturers lifetime guarantee
Peli cases are the most well-known and widely used waterproof equipment cases available today. Having expanded from the original Peli Protector range to now include Peli Air, Ruck, Hardback, Micro and Storm Case / roto moulded options previously manufactured by Hardigg (which became part of Peli in 2009), there is a case for application, industry, or product.
Every one of the Peli cases available from GWP – an official distributor of Pelican Cases in the UK – can also be customised including the addition of engineered foam inserts and exterior branding / print.

More Info on Peli Cases
Waterproof, extra durable transit / equipment cases
To put in perspective how popular and enduring Peli cases are, it should be noted that the first one (Pelican Protector) was developed and launched in 1978.
Over the following 4 decades, Pelican cases have become the byword for the highest levels of protection (from dust, water, impact, mishandling etc.) as well as usability and features. In fact, the term “peli case” is now often used as a generic term to describe any similar waterproof case!
With the original Pelican cases only undergoing minor iterations over the years, a number of other Peli case options have been launched to cater to specific segments and applications.
This includes the smaller sized Peli Micro and Ruck case ranges, the lighter (and therefore easier to handle) Peli Air, and the Peli Hardback collection (specifically for laptops, tablets, and similar equipment).
Peli also purchased their long-time competitor, Hardigg, in 2009. This means that the Storm Case range, as well as the ISP2 and single lid roto mould cases, are now part of the range too.
Custom Peli Cases
As well as the differing Pelican case types – alongside the size and colour options – there are also a number of options for enhancing the various Peli cases.
A wide range of standard options includes PICK N PLUCK foam inserts, padded dividers, shoulder straps, bezel kits (for mounting electronics), lid organisers and more.
However, it is possible to add completely custom features too.
The most common of these is to add custom engineered foam inserts. Peli case foam of this type is not only a perfect fit for the case, but is also fully tailored to the tools, products or equipment that is to be protected. These foam inserts can be differing colours, have laser etched branding, and can even offer precisely calculated levels of cushioning performance.
The majority of Peli cases also allow for exterior branding, applied with screen or digitally printed graphics (although printed / cut vinyl can also be applied).
All of this means that, whatever your requirement, you can source a Pelican case that is perfectly tailored to your exact specification.
