ANATOMY OF A PELICAN CASE

Ultimate Equipment Protection

For over 30 years Pelican has built a reputation for manufacturing the toughest cases in the world. As a matter of fact, we invented the category. Over these years we've seen our cases used for some fairly crazy activities...and important ones too.

Pelican Cases have been thrown out of helicopters in Iraq, floated through frigid fjords in Norway and rolled over by SUVs in Tanzania. With only a few scratches to show on the outside, contents inside are left unscathed. These are minor details for major bragging rights. And that is really what it's all about. Getting your gear from point A to point B in the condition it's meant to be in: intact and functional. Because it might contain a large format camera that will shoot next month's magazine cover or a heart defibrillator that could save a person's life, you can't put a price on it.


Truck on case

Stronger by Design

Pelican Cases are made with a proprietary combination of homo co-polymers, using an open cell core and solid wall construction, which is stronger and lighter than a solid core wall. Stainless steel pins are used in hinges and handles.

Watertight

Watertight

The secret is the tongue and groove fit with a polymer o-ring acting as a waterproof seal.

Valve

Cool Under Pressure

Automatic Pressure Equalization Valve releases built-up air pressure while keeping water molecules out, resulting in a watertight case that is even easier to open.

Easy Roller

Easy Roller

Stainless steel ball bearing wheels last longer and ride smoother. The nylon hub adjacent to the stainless steel is made to resist heat. The result is less wear and tear on the polyurethane wheel.


Double throw latch

Double-Throw Latches

Stainless steel hasp protectors are a Pelican exclusive. The Double-Throw latches are smarter and easier to open: it's the classic "C" clamp design with a secondary movement that works like a pry bar to start the release and offers plenty of leverage to open with a light pull.

Nameplate

Nameplate

Custom engraved nameplates are available for a nominal fee.

Padlock protector

Reinforced Padlock Protectors

Stainless steel reinforced padlock protectors provide added strength and extra security against cutting and theft.

I replaced my factory supplied rifle case (for the Sig Sauer 556 Classic SWAT) with the Pelican 1700 because the original case could not fit any mounted optics. Additionally, I wanted to have a forward grip mounted and that wouldn't fit either. The 1700 fits the Sig 556, with optics and forward grip, either with the stock collapsed (barely) or with plenty of room to spare with the stock folded. To fit a folded stock, I cut partially into the top foam (about .75"). I did the same thing for the magazines. I also had room for four standard 30 round magazines, the backup diopter site, a Sig 229R .40, and three magazines for the 229.

Cutting the foam was easier than expected. I initially planned to use a hot nichrome wire to cut the foam from a stencil, but found that a serrated knife worked just fine. I followed the instructions and used chalk to outline, then cut in about 1/4" from the outline. This creates a very snug fit. In the end this was exactly what I was looking for to carry my gear to the range. It's overkill in that I'm sure I could drop the loaded case from a three story building and the gear would survive (and I really don't need that). All that protection adds to the weight, and while I knew it would be heavy, it's a lot heavier than the no frills factory case.

Only things I would change is the non-collapsible side handle and the fact that it won't stand up on the narrow edge with the wheels (minor issues). Here's a tip when arranging your gear: consider the weight distribution so the case is balanced from the handle.

RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS A CASE THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME!!!
I purchased this case specifically to travel with and pack my Remington 700 30-06 Long Action with Nikon Monarch 42mm 2.5x10. However, upon seeing the case, I was also able to fit my Sig Sauer P226 9mm (full sized sidearm) in there. Not only that, but I also put in a box of 20 30-06 and a box of 25 9mm rounds. I even had room to put in my earmuffs (that fold). Contined in this very durable, but lightweight case, was my entire hunting arsenal. It was fully complient with the TIA regulations and I had zero fear that the baggage handlers were going to hurt my gear.

Cutting out the foam wasn't too bad. It says to leave a 1/4" around the margins to help hold the items, but I found this to be a bit TOO much and will have to go back and cut out a little bit more. I would be conservative when cutting out the foam b/c though you can glue the foam back in, it probably won't be the same...

I trust Pelican products as these are the cases that we use in the military (I am a Navy Diver) to dive gear, electronics, cameras, etc. These cases are waterproof, will float, and can put up with Navy divers throwing them around.

In my opinion this is one of the few gun cases that comply with TSA security specification for commercial airline "checked baggage" firearms transportation. Most of the cheap "hard" cases on the market are "not" compliant with the regulations. If you read the requirements and don't want to be delayed during "check-in" you might want to consider this as the way to go.
TSA officers give me the thumbs-up when checking this suitcase and tell me that they wish that everyone else would read the requirements as I did.
Don't take my word for it. Read the individual airline requirements for yourself.
That is all.

I got it in 2 days and found it fairly easy to carve the foam with the electric carving knife sprayed with cooking oil. A picture of my Browning Citori should be in the gallery to give you an idea how it fits. Now I am ready to travel with my toy.

I ordered the the 1700 on Amazon after an extensive search online. This was by far the best price. The item was shipped quickly and I received it in perfect condition. I really like the case. It is tough as nails and exceeded my expectations. I would buy this case again in a heart beat.

If there was one negative it was having to cut the foam. There did not seem to any great way to do this. I did it myself and it didn't come out half bad.

This is like every other Pelican product I have seen--excellant. The only slight issue is that the main handle doesn't fold down, technically making the case exceed airline luggage size restrictions. Southwest didn't seem to care, although I was prepared to cut that handle off to avoid the $50.00 oversize penalty. A great case.

This is one sturdy little puppy--you can stand on it. But be warned: the interior dimensions are 36" x 24" x 4.5", and it's not all usable. Inside the case you will find two 1.5" slabs of foam in the bottom of the case, and another single piece in the top. You are supposed to trace lines around your equipment on one of the bottom pieces--leaving at least an inch of foam along the sides. Then cut out the holes you traced with an electric carving knife. That means the depth of the cutout is 1.5"--the thickness of one piece of foam. For me, 1.5 inches is not enough to hold my scoped M4 with a laser on a side rail. Even cutting into the top and bottom pieces (which you are not supposed to do) will not give me enough room. So I'll have to dismount the laser for transport, which is a real pain.

Pros:
Really, really tough.
Reinforced lock holes
Wheels
Watertight (claimed) with automatic pressure equalization

Cons:
Heavy!
Interior is small for exterior size
