TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pelican Products, the global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance protective cases and advanced portable lighting, is holding an auction for a one of a kind, decorated Pelican™ Air Artist Series Case on eBay with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Best Defense Foundation.
With only 1 special edition Artist Series of 6 cases in existence, bidders can compete for the six different designs (bear, wolf, owl, fox, lynx or eagle), each captured in vivid, cell-shaded color and detail conveying their true alpha essence. The images are provided by freelance artist Dani Blazquez (www.daniblazquez.com) and are fully wrapped around a Pelican™ Air 1535TRVL case. The auction will start September 18th and run until September 25th. Starting bid: (US) $1,000 each.
“We see our fair share of personalized Pelican cases in the field, but the Artist Series cases take that to a different level. We’re proud to offer and create these one-of-a-kind cases in support of this great cause,” said Kevin Murphy, Director of Marketing, Pelican Commercial / Government Division.
For increased security, the cases feature strong Press and Pull latches with integrated TSA accepted key locks. Each model interior features a lid organizer with apparel pockets and a set of two individual packing cubes for maximizing space. This allows for the versatility of transporting clothes, as well as tools of the trade (lenses, cables, cameras, sensitive instruments, etc.). Pelican™ Air Travel Cases are made with HPX2 resin, which is up to 40% lighter than comparable Pelican™ Protector Case™ brand sizes, yet stands up to the same rigorous tests (impact, drop, submersion, high and low temperature) and the harshest baggage handlers known to man.
Additional travel-friendly features include a heavy duty pull handle and quiet rolling stainless-steel bearing wheels for effortless transport, an automatic purge valve for easier opening in high altitudes, as well as a watertight O-ring gasket. The case (not the decoration) are backed by the company’s legendary lifetime guarantee of excellence.
