The injection molded Pelican Classic case uses and open cell core and solid wall construction, which is stronger and lighter than a solid core wall. Stainless steel pins are used for hinges and handles. The new double throw latches are smarter and easier to open. It’s the classic ‘C’ clamp design. The automatic pressure equalization valve releases built-up air pressure while keeping water molecules out, resulting in a water tight case. Metal reinforced padlock protectors provide added strength and extra security.
