Pelican defines cold with their coolers, crushes it (by way of resisting all infiltration and impact!) with their crush-proof backpacks, and now armors your garments, gifts, and gear for their journey into the vortex of holiday travel with the Elite Vacationer series of luggage.

Along with the buttload of stuff you'll be hauling back east / out west / through hell and high water this season, Pelican Elite Vacationer luggage carries the trademark Pelican aesthetic and technical specs for durability. The 30" bags' super hard outer shell is made of injection molded HPX high performance resin, with a double wall of polypropylene that can withstand external loads of up to 1,500 pounds. The Elite Vacationer can also drop his or her Pelican into a meter of water for up to 30 minutes without fear of infiltration.

Vacationer bags come with or without an Enhanced Travel System. Those who opt in will get a lid organizer, dopp style toiletry kit, zippered shoe sack, and laundry and garment bag in addition to the suitcase's:

  • Lightweight design
  • Recessed press and pull latches
  • Recessed TSA-approved combination lock
  • Recessed carry handles (top, bottom, side)
  • Recessed retractable handle
  • Custom design ball bearing wheels with solid hubs
  • Watertight O-ring seal
  • Automatic pressure equalization valve
  • Interior dimensions of 25.85" long x 16.98" wide x 10.93" deep
  • Exterior dimensions of 28.49" long x 19.75" wide x 12.57" deep

In addition to the Elite Vacationers, Pelican also has smaller Elite luggage in their 27" Weekender and 22" Carry-On lines.
