Combining strength and lightness, the black Pelican 1525 AirWD Carry-On Case with Dividers is watertight, crushproof, dustproof, and optimized for travel. For travel by air, Pelican has aggregated available airline rules for maximum overhead and check-in dimensions with the goal of creating a case that conforms to their requirements. Of course, there will always be exceptions, so it's wise to contact your carrier before departing.
The 1525 AirWD case is made of a super-light, proprietary HPX polymer with honeycomb structural elements that is up to 40% lighter than most other Pelican polymers. This confidence-inspiring design has been drop-tested on concrete on all sides and corners while loaded with gear. Not content to stop there; the case is also tested with a 28 lb steel dart dropped from a height of three feet.
Fully featured, the case has ABS double-throw latches that accept a user-supplied padlock, a watertight O-ring gasket, an automatic purge valve, and stainless-steel hasp protectors. Users will appreciate the new, stylish conic curve lid shape and rubber overmolded handle. Additionally, for easier case ID, there's an attractive, removable polycarbonate card holder that may be placed on the front or side of the case.
Besides being lighter, Pelican has also added some nice touches to the divider system. The system features a full sewn tub with a felt exterior and touch-fastening, padded dividers. Users will appreciate the bright yellow, hi-visibility fabric that makes finding gear in low light much easier. Elastic hold down straps keep gear extra secure, and prevent unwanted movement. The divider set includes 1 tub, 2 large dividers, 6 medium dividers, and 3 small dividers.
