Common Concerns When Traveling With a Laptop:


Can My Pelican Laptop Case Withstand the Wear-and-Tear of Traveling?

Yes. Pelican Laptop Cases are made with Copolymer Polypropylene, which is a type of reinforced plastic, and are crushproof. Don’t worry… the sometimes careless airport personnel who may handle your laptop case are no match for a case that has survived being thrown off of helicopters, rolled over by automobiles, and submerged into water.

Will My Laptop Be Secure Inside of the Case While Traveling

Yes. Pelican offers a unique system of cushioning your laptop inside your case with what is called Pick ‘N’ Pluck foam. Here’s how it works: pick your laptop case, measure it over the grid of foam, and remove any excess foam that you don’t need. You also have the option of letting Pelican do the work for you; if you simply send them the measurements of your gear, they’ll pluck and fit the foam for you.

Will My Laptop Be Protected Against Theft As I Travel?

Yes. Pelican offers various accessories that you can purchase with your cases. In terms of protecting your laptop from being stolen, Pelican offers the TSA (Transportation Security Authority) Lock, which is a 3-number code combination lock. This lock can only be opened only by airport personnel who have special access keys designed specifically for these locks. This feature helps to ensure worry free traveling.
