Made for the Long-Haul

Go With a Classic, Not a Craze

Every year you do everything you can to make sure you are prepared for all your adventures. But when it comes to investing in gear, you want to make sure it is going to be useful for more than one summer. Pelican products are made for the long-haul, and these are some of the most popular choices from last summer. But this isn’t about jumping on the bandwagon to follow the trends. It’s about seeing the gathering momentum behind some of the best gear available. This is the gear that you’ll happily use year after year.

The Elite Choice

It’s no surprise that the most popular hard-sided cooler of last summer was the 20QT Pelican Elite Cooler. There is no better way to show your style than with one of these coolers, thanks to the wide variety of colors available. A 20QT Elite Cooler is easy to transport to a picnic or a ballgame thanks to the rubberized handle and ergonomic carrying groove along the back. Whether you’re at the beach or by the pool, you’ll appreciate the built-in bottle opener and cup holders on this cooler. And you’ll rest easy on every adventure knowing that Pelican backs up their hard-sided coolers with a lifetime warranty.

Soft But Tough

If you’ve been a fan of Pelican for a while, then you know that the Dayventure Sling Soft Cooler was first released at the end of June 2019. But by the end of the summer, this soft cooler was a huge hit. Designed to be portable and versatile, the Dayventure Sling features an over-the-shoulder strap with a comfortable pad and is big enough for a 12-pack of beer or soda cans or even 4 bottles of wine. Available in two colors, each with a bright accent color inside, the Dayventure Sling Soft Cooler is an instant classic that you’ll love to take with you on all kinds of adventures.

Wheeling Around Town

45QT Pelican Wheeled Elite Coolers are always in demand. With their sturdy wheels, there’s no terrain they can’t take on. Thanks to the thick layer of insulation in their walls, these coolers can hold ice for as much as seven full days. And the fact that a 45QT Wheeled Elite Cooler can also withstand the interest of a grizzly bear only proves that no adventure is too rugged for these coolers. The release of the new charcoal wheeled coolers in the spring of 2019 made them a big summer favorite last year. Imagine yourself wheeling a 45QT Wheeled Elite Cooler behind you on your way out of the house. It looks like fun doesn’t it?

Chill Out

5lb Pelican Ice packs have been a perennial summer favorite when it comes to cooler accessories. Who doesn’t want a reusable ice pack that freezes colder than ice and helps you get the best performance from your cooler? And in 2019 Pelican Ice packs got even better thanks to the release of the 1lb and 2lb sizes. All of these ice packs are designed to work with Pelican hard-sided and soft coolers, so you can count on having the right ice pack for your Pelican cooler.

Protection on the Go

Choose last summer’s best-selling dry box to keep your gear safe this summer: the Pelican G40 Go Case. The G40 is waterproof, dustproof, and crushproof, which means your gear is safe from weather, drops, and bumps. In the standard G40 Go Case a removable cell phone tray allows you to keep your phone safely in place and provides pockets for credit cards or cash on the underside, while still leaving room for other gear below it as well. Six eye-catching colors make it easy to find your Go Case and a convenient carry handle can be used to secure it in place among your other gear. You can also choose the G40 Charge Case, which has a Qi-certified wireless charging tray to fully charge your phone up to four times while you are out adventuring!

Summer Favorites All-Around

With so many options to choose from, you can be sure to find a Pelican that will fit your life and adventures. And remember that Pelican products are tough, built to last, and come with great warranties. That’s the reason that so many folks love Pelican, and you will too!
