Combining strength and lightness, the black Pelican 1615AirWD Wheeled Check-In Case with Dividers is watertight, crushproof, dustproof, and optimized for travel. For travel by air, Pelican has aggregated available airline rules for 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 1615AirWD case is made of a super-light, proprietary HPX polymer with honeycomb structural elements to make it 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-pound steel dart dropped from a height of 3 feet and submerged for 30 minutes at a depth of 3.3 feet. The wheels are roll tested over 1000 yards with loads at 5 mph.
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, rubber overmolded handles, and an extending trolley 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.
