I see pelican has come out with a new line of lighter weight "Pelican Air" cases ...
supposed to be ~40% lighter ....
have you had a chance to evaluate them for ADV luggage use?
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.
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!

Just picked up a 2013 F800GS for a smoking deal. I'm interested in Caribou panniers but your site says :
NOTE: If your bike came with BMW Vario side case mounts there will be an interference with the passenger grab rail bar that runs under the seat. To remedy this problem, you can replace the Vario passenger grab rails with regular grab rails available from BMW, or...
How do I know if I have the Vario side case mounts or the regular grab rails?
Oh, and is there an inmate code?
Here are the sides
Disregard, I found an excellent video that talked about the Vario cases including showing the mounts. I do have the mounts. Now to figure out what to do...
