Pelican 1557 Air Overview

The Pelican 1557AirWF Hard Carry Case in black has been updated so that you can make the most of the space while still getting the best possible protection for your priceless equipment. You receive the 1557 case with two layers of Pick-N-Pluck foam, allowing you to customise the interior to fit your unique equipment and guarantee that it is completely protected. The cushioned protection is completed by a convoluted egg crate insert for the lid's interior and a foam base layer for the case's bottom.

Pelican 1557AirNF Hard Carry Case with Liner, No Insert (Black)

Built for strength and portability, the black Pelican 1557AirNF Hard Carry Case is designed to be dustproof, fully watertight, and crushproof to protect your valuable gear against the harshest handling, shipping, and environmental conditions on the planet. This edition of the 1507Air comes lined, but without foam or other inserts, allowing you the freedom to completely customize the 43.9 x 33 x 24.9 cm interior to your specific needs and your specific gear.

Your case is made of a super-light proprietary HPX2 polymer, with honeycomb structural elements, which is up to 40% lighter than most other Pelican polymers and has newly designed dual push-button latches that provide ease-of-use versus previous iterations. Case design features include an O-ring that seals it to an IP67 rating to be dust and waterproof, dual 0.8cm diameter stainless steel reinforced padlock holes, and a pressure relief valve. This valve regulates the internal pressure, keeping your gear and the case from getting crushed and allowing you to open the case without having to break a tough pressurized seal that may develop. A polycarbonate card holder may be placed on the front or side of the case.

Pelican 5-Piece Foam Set for 1557Air Case

Designed for their 1557Air case, the Pelican 5-Piece Foam Set can be used to replace the foam that came with your case, or if you need to put a different gear in it than you originally intended, or as an option if you bought the case without foam. This set consists of a convoluted egg crate foam lid insert, a base layer for the bottom of the case, and three pieces of customizable Pick-N-Pluck foam. Pelican recommends that you leave at least an inch of foam between your gear and the inside walls of the case to make sure it is well protected.
