Pelican Introduces The ProGear U160 Half Case Camera Pack

Posted by on Wednesday May 22, 2013 | Uncategorized

U160-zoomAn odd name to be sure, but Pelican’s new ProGear U160 Half Case Camera Pack is built to take any abuse that life might throw at it. Essentially, the folks at Pelican have added padded dividers to one of their famous hard cases and then built that case into the lower half of a backpack.

The waterproof, crushproof lower section protects your camera and lenses and movable dividers allow customization without picking out foam squares as is required with some other Pelican cases. The upper section looks to have a decent amount of space for accessories, lunch or a jacket. It also has a tablet pocket for your iPad or android device. Wearing a hard box on your back has never been the most comfortable way to carry gear. But Pelican has addressed this with a solid s-curve spine, load lifters to keep the pack close to your back, a sternum strap and a removable waist belt.

It looks to be a pretty solid option if your photographic adventures require hardcore protection for your gear.

Priced at $325 and available now at
