    Pelican EL22 reviews

    EL22 Elite Carry-On Luggage with Enhanced Travel System (Gray and Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Camera Bag?!?! So far, so good! I was looking for an alternative to the 1510 for many reasons. Case does well and doesn't attract as much attention in comparison to the other Pelican line of cases when traveling. Fits slightly more gear due to the increase in depth and is noticeable when packing camera gear - the extra interior height definitely helps with those slightly longer tele lenses and addition of battery grips and tripod mounts. I made my own insert, as the case isn't quite made for camera gear. I used the TrekPak system, which, did I mention is AMAZING! Highly recommend the stuff - I have it in my 1510's too and nothing beats it. A bit pricey but the flexibility of it is worth its weight in gold. You aren't buying new foam every time you switch kits and your aren't limited by velcro, which rips sooner than later. Recommend the top organizer - fits more than the 1519 organizer and is deeper to allow way more, including a laptop on top if you really want. This is very noticeable on how much more you can fit in relation to depth of 1510. Although the 1519 could probably fit with some cutting and some thinking (won't bolt up) I would spend the extra $$ and pick up the organizer, even if your like me and only need the top organizer. Again - TrekPak doesn't make an insert for this case and if you want to replicate what I have done you need 6 full length dividers as they get eaten up quick on the outer edges. Get a full set of the pin packs as well. Case is slightly narrowing towards the deepest part and is slightly noticeable when making the dividers and will take some extra tweaking. Cutting takes some time as you also have to make cutouts for wheels and a slight cut for handle. From left to right here is what it fits from the picture....

Equipment Plus a TON of stuff in the lid (batteries, intervalometers, releases, batteries, chargers, 2 GoPros, mounts, spares, CAT 5 Cables, 32000 mah power pack for 3-axis motion. Spare everything. Can put a lot more in the top of this and it is extremely noticeable! Cons - not too many divider options so far even though it is not considered a camera case. Interior bottom padding material doesn't see to hold up the greatest so we will have to wait and see. Looks easily replaceable if absolutely needed. Way overpriced in compassion to the extremely rugged and touch 1510. Other than that these, which I can't fault the product for, I highly recommend!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Handle has snapped off twice This would be a great case if they would fix the only weak spot on the case.� The plastic handle is connected to the metal handle posts with just about an inch of plastic. It creates a stress point on the plastic. Otherwise, the case would be awesome. Pelican replaced the first case but it just did it again. I'm going to try the pelican 1535 air case which has a sold plastic handle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pellican Luggage Actually using this carry-on suitcase for clothes (who would think?). Seems as durable as all the other Pelican gear cases I have owned. It is nice not to have to worry about liquids and fragile items getting broken when gate checking it on a puddle jumper. Also peace of mind that it won't get wet. Latches are a bit flimsy but have not failed yet (locking mechanism is cleverly designed, and seems to be the safety). It is pricey, but especially nice that bumps and bruises will only enhance the appearance, unlike some of the shiny luggage available

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not sure I agree with Enhanced Travel System To protect my camera gear while traveling, should I be forced to check my bag. It has lots of room. Colorful so it won't get lost. I would have done without the Travel System had I known what it really was. Seems a lot of money for zipper bags other companies (other than Pelican) sell for less. Nothing special about the system.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The TSA lock is a huge problem.... Overall, it is a very nice case that is marginally worth the price tag that it commands. I am 6'3 tall and then handle length was perfect for me. Others have said that it wasn't long enough, and now I'm guessing that maybe they have short arms or maybe I have longer arms. Hahaha. The build quality is nice, but I expected that. Wheels roll quiet and smooth. The wide pull handle design is great! It puts each leg down the corners of the case, resulting in more open space inside. It fit perfectly in the overhead bin in any orientation. The material is made with thinner plastics than other traditional Pelican cases are made with. If this luggage were branded under a different luggage company, you would have never even guessed that Pelican was ever involved. Now for the bad. The TSA lock can be EASILY OPENED with a simple pry from a basic flathead screwdriver. Nothing will get scratches, no marks...nothing. Just lock the luggage up, and put a screw driver on the latch, and it will pop open with just a little bit of force. I read about that in other posts but I couldn't believe how easy it was to do myself. Being that this is intended for carry on luggage...meaning that it will never leave your side, the TSA lock can be overlooked, but this will surely discourage me from wanting to complete my collection with their larger two luggages.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice bag... The quality is on par with all other Pelican products I've ever had. The bag is extremely lightweight (empty). The wide top handle is great! The rails going down the corners of the bag leave lots of flat space on the back/bottom when packing. The wheels roll very smoothly... The enhanced travel system is very nice...the lid organizer made it very easy to slip the laptop and iPad in along with the power supplies and still had an entirely different space for things like international power adapters, Bose earphone case and other items I wanted quick access to once airborne. The shoe bag is a nice touch...vented. I was in dire need of a new shaving the one included was very convenient. I really like the square construction of the bag...most others have angled sides, etc. that make it difficult to pack things neatly. This bag made me throw rocks at my old one and I'll be burning it in effigy once I return home. ;-) The only con I have (so far) is they didn't mold in a provision for an owner tag/business card to identify it as yours for the airlines. I'm not a big fan of tags on the handles, as they invariably get ripped off by baggage handlers or the conveyer equipment. The best part is there is NO DOUBT which bag is yours! Nobody else will have one like it (for a while at least) and the bright color surround makes it a piece of cake to spot from a distance. Bag fits easily in the overhead storage...well under the limits imposed by even international carriers. Took mine to Bora Bora for it's inaugural trip...made it there without a scratch! But...even then I think its construction makes it an ideal travel bag. My last carry on lasted me nearly 20 years before it started to completely break down...this one should make it well past that! Looking forward to when Pelican release the larger bags...I will certainly be ready for a larger travel bag and from everything I've seen from this 22 carry-on the larger bags will certainly replace my Delsey cases I've had for 20 years...they've been abused by baggage handlers around the world and their single-wall construction has been tested beyond their limits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing case but.... But don't forget to buy dividers if you're using it for equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pelican Lives up to it's name Pelican is definitely living up to it's name with this new line. So far I have the carry on and it's great! Solid construction, plenty of room for short trips. The wide handle looks different from typical luggage but it's sturdy and leave plenty of space inside the case. It also holds other tool kits on top very nicely. I'm so impressed that I've already pre-ordered my full size luggage as well. I just hope they start shipping soon!
