Pelican Products (www.PelicanProGear.com) has introduced Pelican ProGear Sport Backpacks as the newest additions to its newly-established consumer products line, Pelican ProGear.
"All Pelican ProGear products are built especially for the digital protection and extreme performance needs of everyone from the average consumer to the adventure-seekers, and the new Sport Backpacks are no exception," says Lyndon Faulkner, president and CEO of Pelican Products. "Each bag is created with the same Pelican-tough DNA as found in our products used by the military. We are incorporating this professional protection into our consumer goods."
The integrated crushproof Pelican case in the Elite models features the same military-grade attributes as Pelican’s classic case products (including a watertight o-ring seal with automatic pressure equalization valve), and is designed to safeguard laptops, MacBook Pros/Airs, netbooks, e-readers, tablets, keyboards and other accessories. Also included with Elite models is a set of four adhesive, memory foam buffers, which secure the laptop or tablet for safe travel.
The new Pelican ProGear Sport Backpacks are offered to consumers in a range of colors (black, orange and green) and lightweight styles. Faulkner says the collection appeals to an active demographic with light rip-stop nylon and a slimmer case design that favors Ultrabooks. Pelican ProGear Sport Backpack models include the:
° S100 Elite Laptop Backpack (US$269.95) -- It's designed to protect all 15-inch laptops and 17-inch Apple products with a built-in, watertight, crushproof Pelican case.

Other features include a rigid front plate and ergonomic ventilated back panel for tablet device protection

Additional features include top-loading TSA-ready main storage compartment as well as a padded lumbar storage cavity.
° S105 Laptop Backpack ($139.95)-- Shielding 15-inch and 17-inch laptops and Apple products, the impact-protective frame provides 360-degree protection. Additional features include a rigid front plate, integrated laptop sleeve and ergonomic design with deep-ventilated channel back panel
