The new Pelican ProGear Elite Luggage Carry-on, Weekender and Vacationer Luggage is a new line of luggage for people on the go who need great protection and organization while they travel. This new hard-shell luggage line is lightweight, watertight and crush-proof.
There are three different models in the line, and each is designed for a specific purpose. Included are a 22″ Carry-On that weighs 9.2 pounds empty, a 27″ Weekender that weighs 12.2 pounds empty, and a 30″ Vacationer that weighs 15.6 pounds empty.
As Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican Products notes,
We have infused Pelican ProGear Elite luggage with the same Pelican-tough DNA our existing customers in the military, law enforcement and fire safety industries rely on in extreme situations. It’s extremely lightweight and durable, has a sleek looking design and distinctive color line. You can now check your baggage with confidence because Pelican ProGear Elite luggage is engineered to protect your belongings from the rigors of travel and just about any punishment baggage handlers can dish out.
Each model in the ProGear Elite Luggage line is available with an optional “enhanced travel system”. That system includes a lid organizer, a toiletry kit, and a zippered shoe sack. In addition. The enhanced travel system of the larger offerings in the line also includes a garment bag and a laundry bag.
It will come as no surprise that the bags in this line are “Pelican-tough.” Each has a double-wall polymer construction for increased durability and protection.
Additional features in the Pelican ProGear Elite Luggage Line:
- An integrated TSA-approved combination lock
- A smooth fabric interior for simple clean up
- A custom-designed solid-hub wheels for easy maneuverability
- Press & Pull latches
The biggest issue I can see with this line is it’s weight. Considering the new luggage restrictions used by the airline companies, many of us have turned to using the lightest luggage possible. If weight is not a concern, and you want luggage the is both tough and functional (and price is not an issue), then this line is for you!
