I'd just like to know if any of you guys out there use Pellican cases in order to protect your more valuable and potentially breakable items whilst travelling off road. Cameras, phones etc (They also make the world's best rifle cases)

As part of my work in the television / film industry I've used them for many years, particularly travelling in dusty, wet or muddy conditions, but I've never noticed them being used widely amongst 4WD enthusiasts. Neither have I seen many of their outstanding torch / light products being used by recriational travellers.

I'm interested to hear who's using them.

Cheers
Scotty

They certainly are tough.

I supply them to a number of my clients who carry $250,000 television cameras in them - so they must really trust them.

It's good to see that you guys aren't letting them pass you by.

Would you believe I use one to contain our camping plates, utensils, etc.

Cost me an arm and a leg, but following a remote trip where we ended up with bulldust in all the camping gear stored in the trailer, which just had a tarp cover, I needed a sealed case.

I have a slightly smaller one which I should use for the camera gear, but it doesn't have a foam insert in it.
I really should investigate the purchase of an insert for it.

They are totally dust/water proof and can be driven over without damage to the contents.

Drop me a line with the case product number. I'd be happy to supply an insert at cost + postage - no problem.

I use their torches (super saber light) as a dive torch and night dive backup torch. Can be used in explosive atmospheres as well

They are not only dust and waterproof, but airtight as well. To overcome this they have a screw tight valve thingy that is loosened to allow the air pressure inside to equalise with the air pressure outside so that the case can be opened. This could be necessary, e.g., if the case was packed in cold conditions and opened in warmer conditions or packed at a high altitude and then opened at a lower altitude

I used a biggish one to cart a training lab - laptops, hubs, printer, cables, etc. - all over the planet and it took a beating doing it. Last time I saw it, it was still functioning as well as the day it was bought.

Really good kit in my opinion,

Jayk

Can anyone let me know who are the main suppliers of Pelican Cases and lights to the 4WD fraternity?

I can't find anyone on the net that sells to our market.
