Pelican has been consistently adding new case sizes to their Air lineup to provide more options for super light and strong cases. Often times these cases are similar in size to their Protector or Storm cases. This can make it easy to switch to an Air case while fitting in your same equipment and reducing the overall weight of the case and contents.
However, sometimes you're looking for a little more or a little less room than the case you currently have. The newly released Pelican 1646 adds in a new sizing option across all the injection molded cases. The case is quite long at 32.06" but stays relatively narrow at 15.87". This length and width combination is unique among injection molded cases and might be just what's needed. It also provides great depth at 13.42". The length and depth are the reasons Pelican considers this their first long & deep Air case. We've already seen the benefit of this case size at Production Case as we've had several customers where the Pelican Air 1646 ended up being the perfect case size for multiple projects.
