Pelican Introduces Rugged, Waterproof iPod Case

If you are among the growing number of photographers who use an Apple iPod to store digital images while on the road, you should take a look at the new i1030 Micro Case from Pelican Products. This tough, watertight case features a molded rubber compartment that fits the Apple iPod (3rd and 4th generations), iPod Mini with belt clip, and the new iPod video.

A separate compartment holds a USB or Firewire cable, and the lid has plenty of space for earphones and AC adapter. A detachable light-reflecting nylon strap is also included.

The i1030 Micro Case has a high-impact polycarbonate shell that stands up to punishing conditions. A secure latch with stainless steel pins keeps the case closed after drops and hard knocks, and the shock-absorbing liner doubles as a watertight seal. There's also a pressure-balancing Gore-Tex valve that keeps moisture out and makes it easier to open the case after altitude changes.
