Pelican has long been a well known brand for those who demand strong, though bulky, protection for their gear. But recently they have been releasing what some might call the “softer” side of Pelican. Over the past few months we’ve seen a few different bags and cases from them that are aimed more at day to day use than just hard-core traveling pros. Last month’s U160 Half Case is a perfect example.
Now Pelican has announced the Pelican ProGear S115 Sport Elite Laptop/Camera Pro Pack. Unlike some of Pelican’s other products, it has a more traditional soft sided camera storage area, but has a waterproof/crushproof laptop section. Given how crucial digital data is to so many of us, I think there will be a few people who see the value in having their laptop protected to such a level. Insurance can replace lenses, nothing can replace lost data.
