We’re going mobile. It was inevitable and a natural evolution to the ProStorage line. You move around from location to location and so does your data. We thought about how we can help you protect your valuable in different situations and decided to start with a carry-on option. This is why we chose the Pelican 1510 as our first case to create ProStorage inserts.
The Pelican 1510 Carry-On Case is a durable equipment case that meets current FAA requirements for carry-on luggage. Made of an ultra-high impact structural Copolymer Polypropylene, they are nearly indestructible, watertight, dust-proof, and guaranteed for life. It has a 0.25″ neoprene O-ring, and includes an automatic purge valve for quick equalization after changes in atmospheric pressure. The lid is hinged with double ABS latches that seal perfectly. Padlock protectors that provide added strength and extra security against cutting and theft.
The 1510 comes with a top handle, front handle, retractable extension handle, and strong polyurethane wheels with stainless steel bearings. It has an effortless release latch for the extension handle.
The ProStorage inserts were meticulously designed to fit snugly in the case and lid to protect your LFF (3.5”) and SFF (2.5”) drives as well as LTO cartridges. ProStorage adds its well-known impact, and static electricity protection to the air-tight, water-tight, and practically crush-proof Pelican 1510 case.
Why not use the foam inserts that can be purchased with the 1510 case?
You could use the Pick ‘N Pluck square foam inserts that can be purchased with the Pelican 1510 case. But, keep in mind, the foam was designed to accommodate photographic and other electronic equipment rather than bare drives.
The most important feature you would lose is the anti-static electricity characteristics of the ProStorage foam. ProStorage insert are designed specifically for drives and LTO cartridges–designed to fit them perfectly and designed to protect them from static discharge and from dust.
Speaking of dust, over time, the standard grey foam comprising the Pick ‘N Pluck will begin to break down and create a fine foam dust. This dust could easily work its way into your drives and create drive failure. ProStorage foam was designed to last and not break down into dust.
