PELI Cases

Ultimate equipment protection

For nearly 40 years Peli Products has built a reputation for manufacturing the toughest Protector Case™ 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. 

Peli™ 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.


Peli™ cases are made with a proprietary combination of homo-polymers and 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: The secret is the tongue and groove fit with a polymer o-ring acting as a waterproof seal.

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.  

REINFORCED PADLOCK PROTECTORS: Stainless steel reinforced padlock protectors provide added strength and extra security against cutting and theft.

DOUBLE-STEP LATCHES: The Double-Step 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.

FOAM: All Peli™ cases with foam (except Micro Case Series™ cases, Memory Card Cases, 1780W, 1780HL, and1780RF) come standard with Pick N Pluck™ foam. 1700,1720,1750 Cases come standard with 3 piece foam sets. Replacement foam is available for all models (except Memory Card Cases, i1010, i1030, i1015, 1055 and 1065). To order a case with no foam, add NF to the catalogue number.

NAMEPLATE: Custom engraved nameplates are available for a nominal fee.

COOL UNDER PRESSURE: The Automatic Pressure Equalisation Valve releases built-up air pressure while keeping water molecules out, resulting in a watertight case that is even easier to open.
