Pelican cases are globally renowned for toughness and durability, and the company has recently applied that DNA to the humble duffel bag, releasing 100L and 40L models. The 100L features robust 1000-denier nylon that is water resistant, thanks to its DWR (Durable Water Repellency) coating. It also includes a water-resistant media pocket, a separate protective laptop pocket inside the lid, tough YKK zips all-round (with a water-resistant YKK zip on the external media pocket), convertible shoulder straps and additional ballistic nylon-coated, compression moulded EVA ‘impact zones’ on the bottom corners for even more durability. The carry handles are padded, the main compartment has assorted pockets for additional storage, and it has a lifetime guarantee. The 40L is a shrunken version of the bigbopper model, with the same features. Both models include reflective Pelican logos, so you’ll never lose them.

RRP: $249.95 (100L); $199.95 (40L)
