Protect your belongings with waterproof boxes,
Pelican cases promisse to protect your precious belongings from dust, water (some are even 100% waterproof) and shocks. I bought the 1020 model to protect my Airport Express when I travel. It comes with an thick foam on the inside, I chose the see-through lid (easy to see if it’s there or not).
The Pelican cases exist in different colors with foam inside (you can customize the foam inside if needed) or not, with clear lid or not. The opening is easy with one clip.
I was happy with my Pelican case, ready to buy a new one for my 1terra hard drive when I found the Otterbox cases. The Otterbox are easier to find than the Pelican cases.
Same as for the Pelican cases, the Otterbox cases are fit for heavy fights through mud, shock, sand and humidity.
I like the Pelican because of
- the foam on the inside
- the easy opening clip
- and the NiteIze carabinier that comes with it
I like the Otterbox because of
- the 100%see-through boxes, but no foam on the inside
- instead of the carabinier, you’ll get a rope
- instead of a one easy-clip to open the box, you’ll get a two-hard clips to open
The prices range are similar, so no deal breaker here.
ChaseIt or Bchased ?
ChaseIt because it’s a great protector when you travel with delicate informatic hardwares like hard drive, modem … you can also store your jewels if you want or even important paper. The only downside is the weight, protection comes at a price … The weight. Both brands are doing their job, I like the clear boxes from Otterbox but I prefer the opening clips from Pelican.
