Father's Day Gift - Military Grade


Urban myth or real life? A military helicopter is brought down by missile fire and after the pilot and passengers escape, the only thing salvageable inside is a plastic storage case.

An explosive device detonates under an armored vehicle in Pakistan, ripping apart the engine compartment, and a U.S. Army combat engineer is able to walk away because of the plastic case that sat beneath his feet.

These are just some of the many stories surrounding the near-legendary Pelican cases, which protect everything from a iPod to Military equipment the size of a large room.

While we don't own any canons that need protecting, we love the iPad cases, which are like putting armor on our precious electronic.

For instance, the Pelican i1075 case is crush proof , water resistant, dust proof everything-proof, with an integrated easel for hands-free viewing transforming the case into a personal portable office. Its accessory storage feature allows users to keep all headphones, charging cables, etc. organized.

Perfect for Dad on those golf trips, like the one where he accidentally drove the golf cart into the pond.

Approx. $65 at Pelican.
