    I see pelican has come out with a new line of lighter weight "Pelican Air" cases ...

    have you had a chance to evaluate them for ADV luggage use?

    Thanks,

    Hi Jim,

    Yes, I've looked at them. From a standpoint of dimensions, they are not exactly perfect for side cases. Also, many of these cases come with wheels and handles on the back making it difficult to drill and attach our hardware. There is also not a price advantage. Perhaps as a top case one of them would work. If we had some demand for them I might make it a product, but so far there have been no inquiries.

    Thanks Roger ...
    It looks like it might save 3 to 4 lbs... I was thinking it might be a bigger savings...

    I might consider it for my next top case, do you think the construction is sufficiently robust, particularly with regard to water-resistance?

    Yes, for a top case I think they are plenty strong. For our top case mount kit to fit there has to be a 10" x 10" flat area on the back of the case. Some cases have raised features (bars and ridges) that can get in the way. Let me know what model case you are considering.

    He isn't kidding about some of the Pelican Air cases having some raised features. Here is a picture of the Pelican Air 1507. I also have a Pelican Air 1485 and it doesn't have these enlarged feet.

    Thanks Roger!

    It will be a winter project for me, I have your 1550-based top-case now, I'll see what AIR cases there are and think about it over beer this winter!

    Each complete system includes the case, locks, quick attach/release hardware, and cargo plate. You can also purchase the cargo plate alone and throw a soft bag on there with our tie downs and Rok Straps. Or, get our cargo plate and our top case DIY kit and use your own case. Many options.

    Merry Christmas!
