Combining strength and lightness, the black Pelican 1605 Protector Air Case is watertight, crushproof, dustproof, and optimized for travel. 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, it is always recommended to contact your carrier before departing. This iteration of the 1605 case comes with a foam insert, so organizing your equipment is easy and straightforward. Simply arrange the gear you wish to carry on the foam and remove pieces of foam until items fit to your satisfaction.
Your 1605 case is made of a super-light proprietary HPX polymer, with honeycomb structural elements, which is up to 40% lighter than most other Pelican polymers. This material and design has been drop-tested on concrete on all sides and corners while loaded with gear. Not content to stop there, the case has also been tested with a 28-pound steel dart dropped from a height of three feet.
Fully featured, the case has double-throw ABS 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 stylish conic curve lid shape and rubber overmolded handle. For easier case ID, there's an attractive and removable polycarbonate card holder that may be placed on the front or side of the case.
