Traveling laptops of the world, rejoice...Pelican Products, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of virtually indestructible cases has introduced the 1090 HardBack Case as watertight/ crush-resistant armor for laptops.
Designed to fit in most soft bags and protect laptops up to 15" (including brands such as Apple®, Dell® and Sony®) from the rigors of travel, the 1090 sports a high-impact, heat and chemically resistant, composite shell that will stand up to some of the harshest conditions known to man.
As additional protection, the case features a shock-absorbing plush foam liner (with impact-protection cell cushions) and a strong, easy-snap, anodized aluminum latch (with stainless steel hinge pins) to ensure that the computer stays secure and scratch free. The case’s tongue-and-groove lid construction and polymer o-ring creates a watertight seal and its built-in, automatic pressure equalization valve keeps moisture out and makes it easier to open the case at any altitude.
The 1090 also features a sturdy nylon shoulder strap so travelers can keep a firm hold on their gear.
The 1090 HardBack has an MSRP of $139.95 and is also available with Pick 'N' Pluck foam at $129.95. The 1080 Hardback, (also available) is designed to fit in a soft bag like the 1090 but to accommodate smaller laptops up to 13".
