Pelican ProGear Sport Backpacks
“All Pelican ProGear products are built especially for the digital protection and extreme performance needs of everyone from the average consumer to the adventure-seekers, and the new Sport Backpacks are no exception,” said Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican Products, Inc. “Each bag is created with the same Pelican-tough DNA as found in our products used by the military. We are incorporating this professional protection into our consumer goods.”
Following the success of its initial backpack line – the Pelican ProGear Urban Backpacks – under the new consumer brand, the new Pelican ProGear Sport Backpacks also encompass either a Pelican hard case or rigid compartment to fit and protect personal electronics and belongings.
The integrated crushproof Pelican case in the Elite models features the same military-grade attributes as Pelican’s classic case products (including a watertight o-ring seal with automatic pressure equalization valve), and is designed to safeguard laptops, MacBook® computers, netbooks, e-readers, tablets, keyboards and other accessories. Also included with Elite models is a set of four adhesive, memory foam buffers which secure the laptop or tablet for safe travel.
The new Pelican ProGear Sport Backpacks are offered to consumers in a range of colors (black, orange and green) and light weight styles. The collection appeals to an active demographic with light rip-stop nylon and a slimmer case design that favors Ultrabooks. Pelican ProGear Sport Backpack models include:
S100 Elite Laptop Backpack: Protects all 15-inch laptops and 17-inch Apple® products with a built-in, watertight, crushproof Pelican case.
