You're getting prepared for your Summer vacation trip; you bought a new camera for the adventure, but you're concerned about protection for your new toy. What to do? Easy solution -- a Pelican waterproof case; rugged, lightweight, and customizable to fit your camera or other sensitive equipment such as computers.
I own two Pelican cases; one similar to this one -- the Pelican 1440 Case. Rugged polypropylene solid wall construction, with rustproof pins for the hinges and handles (particularly important if you plan to be on the beach or salt water), padlock protector for security against those who would like your gear more than you do, and absolutely water- and dust-proof because of the tongue and groove case and top, and polymer o-ring seal. The case features an automatic pressure equalizing valve, so you can easily access the case at the conclusion of an airplane trip.
If you don't have a need to haul around a big camera or computer in a harsh environment, but just need protection for small items, check out this Pelican 1050 MicroCase. Perfect for your watch and keys, or a point and shoot camera, the polycarbonate (the same material as a fighter jet canopy) case sports a shock absorbing rubber liner and the proprietary Pelican Purge Valve, a clear lid so you can easily survey the Pelican case contents, and a carabiner clip to hang on your belt or backpack. Clever, and convenient.
