For the ultimate protection, put it in a Pelican

If you enjoy making photos or videos on your paddling adventures, you owe it to yourself to get a Pelican case.

On the portage trail, in your cockpit, cascading down rapids after a capsize, bouncing around the cargo hold of a Twin Otter, or under your rump at the campsite—Pelican cases weather it all with timeless durability and bombproof performance.

Favored by schools, outfitters and expedition paddlers to protect the trip’s most valuable equipment—satellite phones, first aid kits, camera gear—these sturdy plastic boxes are unfailingly waterproof, dustproof and crushproof. Made in the U.S., Pelican cases are available in an astounding array of shapes and sizes, but the most common among paddling folk are the clear-lidded Micro Cases—ideal for toting electronic gadgets or compact cameras—and the larger yellow-, orange-, grey- or black-colored briefcases like my own trusty 1300.

The 1300 remains my go-to for bulky SLRs and lenses, but Pelican ProGear’s new GP series Storm Cases are ideally suited to fit smaller action cameras...
