Call To The Colours - with Pelican and TLT
Have a look as well at the rainbow of colours on the Pelican cases. I can understand the basic black and the bright yellow and orange - these would be perfect for high-visibility workplaces or dim studios. Also for Antarctic explorers to keep their sandwiches inside out on the ice.
I can see the khaki model being some form of camouflage in a desert.
But I'm stumped as to the silver colour. Air Force? Stage crew for Liberace? Any thoughts, readers?
The blue one is sheer exuberance. I like it and I think it would make a fabulous lunch box.
More to the point is this picture - it is a good old Pelican square box - a 1300 case. there are three levels of foam in it, two of which are pick-and-pluck so that you can accommodate different sets of gear. Have a look inside there - that's a big old Canon camera with a zoom lens. Once it is snuggled in there and the silicon rubber-sealed lid locked down you can bid defiance to rain, rivers, dirt, and baggage handlers. You can chuck it into the back of a ute and bump it out onto the roadway without any danger.
Pick the right size and you can put it aboard the people section of an airplane...but realistically you can also consign it to the cargo hold and they can stack artillery shells on it.
If you have not treated your gear to a Pelican case you are not getting the best out of your travels. I use a big roll-around one to store and entire studio set in and when I need to stand out from the crowd I crawl up on top of it and do just that. It is that tough. Note; I weigh 68 Kg but I have ambitions to weigh 69Kg after Christmas dinner.
