Pelican brand hard cases are a popular choice for photographers who need to safely transport camera and lighting gear from photo shoot to photo shoot. BrandmadeTV made the 6.5-minute video above that offers a behind-the-scenes look at how these durable hard cases are manufactured.
Founded in an avid diver’s garage in 1976, Pelican now employs over 1,300 people and is the largest maker of protection cases in the world. The airtight and watertight cases are both crushproof and dustproof.
Just how rugged are these cases when it comes to protecting your camera gear? The folks over at B&H decided to find out by torture testing a new Pelican Air case with drops from various heights, a hammer, fire, and a paintball gun.
