Combining strength and lightness, the 1535 AirWD Wheeled Carry-On Case with Dividers 2017 in black from Pelican 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.
Your 1535 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. The case is also tested with a 28-pound steel dart dropped from a height of three feet, submerged for 30 minutes at a depth of 3.3 feet, and the wheels are roll tested over 1000 yards with loads at 5 mph.
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 conic-curved lid shape, the rubber overmolded handles, and the extending trolley handle. For easy case identification, a removable polycarbonate card holder 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 high-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 one tub, two large dividers, six medium dividers, and three small dividers.
