Choosing the Right Pelican Case for your Gear

we know that Pelican Cases are designed to last a lifetime, and some of our audience can attest to this with their cases dating back to the 90s! As we end 2022, it's important to know the proper way to protect your gear. We thought it might be time for a quick refresher on the proper way to calculate the right size for the gear you're looking to protect.

Step #1: Proper Measurement -- you need to start by ascertaining the proper measurements of the main object you're looking to protect. You'll need two out of three possible measurements to start narrowing down the right case for you. Start by measuring the length and width of your main object, making sure to leave room for possible accessories such as lenses / batteries / cleaning kit / etc. We've even done some of the heavy lifting for you by compiling this modern camera body guide, with our preferred case model for some of the top cameras available today.
Here are the basics examples: 4 x 3 in for small cases, 19 x 11 in for medium cases and 40 x 14 in for large cases.

Step #2: Case Selection -- Now that you have the rough dimension of your gear, head over to the Production Case Company Website

to easily search for Small, Medium or Large Cases in the drop-down Menu on the left side

Small cases will be anywhere from 7" to 15" in length (Inside DIMS)

Medium Cases will be anywhere from 15" to 20" in length (Inside DIMS)

Large Cases will be anywhere from 20" to 30" in length (Inside DIMS)

Pelican Long Cases will be communally used for riffle, rods or any long and narrow items. 


Step #3: Interior Selection -- Having the right interior setup for your use is as important as selecting the proper case. Thankfully, Pelican has engineered different solutions for whatever your need might be. The classic, Pick N' Pluck foam, offers perforated cubes that can be removed easily, allowing you to customize the foam shape within your case. Yellow Padded Dividers have velcro on either side, allowing you to make personalized channels and pockets for you gear. Starting last year, Pelican became the exclusive case provider to offer TrekPak, a rearrangeable divider system that allows for clean, organized - and yet readjustable case interiors.
