Adventure-Proof Your Gear with Pelican’s New Ruck and Go Cases


Pelican's new Go and Ruck cases are more than just waterproof and crushproof—they’re adventure proof, as well. Thanks to their rugged designs, these utility carriers will protect phones, gear, and personal items against rigors of every stripe.

The Go Case is available in the smaller of the two series, though its design is just as formidable. Meant to carry phones, credit cards, and accessory cables, the Go is the perfect everyday carrier for users who need additional protection from weather, drops, and whatever else life throws at you. An ABS shell provides the reliable protection you’re looking for in a ruggedized carrier, and its IP67 rating means the interior is safe from water, dirt, snow, and dust. Thanks to its compact size, you can easily carry the Go Case in hand or attach it to a belt or pack using an optional carabiner. It’s available in both small and large sizes, which correlate to the size of your smartphone.

Like the Go Case, the Ruck Case is available in multiple variants: the R20, R40, and R60. The difference, as you might imagine, is the size. The R20 measures in at 7.1 × 3.4 × 2.0", while the slightly larger R40 gives you 7.6 × 4.7 × 1.9" of interior real estate, and the R60 provides the most room with 8.9 x 5.4 x 3". Size differences aside, all three Ruck variants feature a tough ABS shell and are IP68 rated to keep out water, dirt, snow, and dust. The Ruck cases also feature an interior removable divider tray with a MOLLE-style loop system that allows you to organize your belongings neatly, just the way you like them.
