Peli Air range, the lightest protective cases on the market, is expanding its range to offer colour versions in yellow, orange and grey
Available in five long- form, travel-ready sizes, there is even a wheeled Carry On that complies with current airline size regulations*. The range embodies Peli’s DNA – the global leader since 1976 in the design and manufacture of protective cases that withstand the most extreme conditions on earth. The new models are available empty or with Pick N Pluck foam inside, which is a manually customisable cubed foam enabling you to pack your precious contents snugly, and are backed by the Peli’s legendary lifetime guarantee(where applicable by law). Models, sizes and prices are: 1535, 55.8 x 35.5 x 22.8cm (carry on) – £278.50 1485, 48.7 x 32.5 x 17.5cm – £207.78 1525, 55.8 x 35.5 x 19cm – £238.21 1555 , 62.9 x 39.3 x 20.9cm – £272.24 1605 , 73.3 x 42.6 x 23.2cm – £323.72

Available for purchase from Peli Products UK, the Peli Air caseshave been engineered to maintain the same standard of durability as the Peli classic or Peli Storm lines, but reducing the weight of each case by up to 40 per cent. Peli’s engineering team faced the challenge of building lightness into every facet of the design, without compromising Peli’s renowned durability. By working with a team of materials scientists, Peli built the lightest protective cases on the market today, constructed of premium lightweight HPX2 resin, the next generation of Peli’s proprietary formula that rebounds to stress without breaking. Each case passes the same rigorous performance tests (impact, drop, submersion, high and low temperature) that Peli has proven during more than 40 years.
