has introduced the Pelican Storm Case (Model No. iM2435
) as a rolling office or tool/photography equipment caddy, according to the company.
The iM2435 fits in most overhead airline compartments and is available with an optional "mobile office" file kit that features a lid organizer and a customizable padded divider set that will accommodate a 15.6-inch laptop. Also available as an optional accessory is the TSA-accepted PeliLock, which airport personnel, who all have special access keys, won't need to cut for security inspections.
With 1,576 cubic inches (.91 cubic feet) of storage space, the iM2435 features a unique top-loading design that gives easy access to its contents. Additionally, there are molded-in feet that give the case stability when it's upright and full. Standard features include stainless steel, ball-bearing, polyurethane wheels; an extra-long, telescoping metal handle; and recessed rubberized top grip. The case also features integrated padlock protectors to thwart cutting and theft.
The iM2435's HPX polymer construction helps it protect sensitive equipment. Strong press and pull latches ensure that the case stays secure. Additional features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dust and waterproof seal, and an automatic pressure equalization Vortex valve that stops moisture from entering the case and prevents vacuum-lock so the case opens easily at any altitude.
