What is a Peli™ Air Case?

- Categories : News

air_group_shot-peliSince 1976 the original Peli™ Protector Case line has grown to over 60 unique sizes, but that is still not enough. The Peli™ Protector Case and Peli Storm™ Case line is complimented with Peli™ Air's long and deep case designs that are 45% deeper and 40% lighter. Peli™ Air cases offer both long or deep variations you won't find in the Peli Protector™ Case line or Peli Storm™ Case line. 

The Peli™ Air case range is a remarkable innovation in the competitive landscape: preserving Peli’s legendary standards of strength while reducing structural waste to up to 40%.

Peli™ keeps on innovating by incorporating new technologies, materials and features. The latest case range, Peli™ Air, features next generation HPX resin, allowing it to maintain its legendary toughness with less material. The result is a slimmer, lighter case with more internal capacity, as well as all the other features you should expect from a premium plastic injection moulded case: waterproof, high crush and puncture resistance, and an automatic pressure relief valve for accessibility at any altitude. Peli™ Air cases are also backed by the Peli™ legendary Lifetime Guarantee. Here below a description of all these features:


1615-extension-handleThe Peli™ Air case has been designed to cut weight without compromising durability:  pebblesPeli™'s engineers have revolutionised the protector case by reducing structural waste while preserving Peli’s legendary standards of strength. In development for years, the Peli™ design team challenged the status quo to “add lightness” in every detail. Here are some important reasons why Peli™ Air cases are both strong and light:
         o Moulded from the next generation of Peli’s HPX2™ resin, a proprietary formula

         o Honeycomb structural elements that are stronger than solid polymer material
         o Super-stiff “full box” sections engineered to create hollow parts


It wouldn’t be a Peli™ case if you couldn’t drop it, kick it and run over it – and the Peli™ Air case is no different.peli-air-1525-case-01 (Medium)

    o Drop-tested on concrete with loads from 1,8 m on all sides and corners
    o Submerged for 30 minutes at a depth of one meter
    o Wheels are roll tested over 1 km with loads at 8 km/h
    o 12,7 kg steel dart dropped on all sides from 1m

Having the right camera and being passionate about what you do is key to be a successful photographer. However, having the right protection for your valuable gear will help you focus on the job without worries. The right camera case will allow you to travel safe, no matter where! Your equipment will be safe from weather conditions and rough handling. Peli™ Air cases offer lightweight impact protection for all kind of cameras and with enough additional space for lenses, cables, optics and other accessories. Up to 40% lighter than other polymer protector cases, Peli™ Air is the preferred companion of those outdoor or travel photographers who need to travel lightweight, but still need the best of protection for their valuable DSLR cameras.

One of the most important parts of the right case solution is the interior. The interior protection is available through different types of systems, which allows for adapting the interior according to the shape of one’s equipment. The  Peli™ Air case is available with a pick 'n' pluck foam set, and almost all also have a compatible padded divider set and TrekPak divider set. Let’s take a look at the options in depth:

  • TREKPAK™ DIVIDERSpelican-trekpak-case-divider-kit-medium

The TrekPak™ system uses pre-installed wall sections, divider panels, locking pins and an infallible cutting tool. Just lay your gear in the case, measure and cut the divider sections and lock them in place with the steel U-pins.


1510_1511_highAn easy, do-it-yourself system for the interior of the case. Layers of foam are pre-scored in 1,27 cm or 2,54 cm cubes. Simply lay your equipment on the foam, tape or chalk to mark the foam, and pluck away. Always allow at least 2,5 cm of foam between your equipment and the case wall. 

  • K-TEG CUSTOM FOAMcaseinserts_1

Custom foam and extreme solutions such as deck mount suspension systems will keep your delicate items protected on the inside.


No longer choose between the versatility of the TrekPak™ divider system or the protection of the manually customisable Pick N Pluck™ foam. Peli™ Hybrid protection features both. Only available for the Peli™ Air 1535 case as a standard offering.

  • CUSTOM LOGOPeli Air 1485 laserengravement 2 (Medium)
