Carhartt WIP & Pelican Crafted A Nearly-Indestructible Air Travel Carry-On

Pelican has been the go-to storage and hard-case provider for photographers, videographers, and creatives for quite some time. Not only do their quintessential enclosures protect, sustain, and secure the world’s most important equipment, they’re also aesthetically astute, calling upon a recognizable silhouette that’s undeniably technical, sleek, and subtle. Now, the brand has joined forces with Carhartt WIP for an all-encompassing 1535 Air Carry-On Case — marrying the worlds of style and utilitarian purpose.

The Carhartt WIP x Pelican 1535 Air Carry-On Case pulls out all the stops when it comes to fashionable function, thanks to its hard-side HPX²™ resin construction, stainless steel wheels, and components, and a collapsable, three-stage carry handle that extends at a moment’s notice, allowing for intuitive transport. If you’re not one for the rolling luggage look, don’t fret; there’s also a set of stowaway handles at the top and side of the case for increased carry-ability. Naturally, a healthy portion of Carhartt WIP and Pelican branding is present, tastefully adorning the front of the Air Carry-On. The launch of the versatile $335 example has been so well-received, however, that you’ll have to apply for a waiting list on SSENSE’s website in anticipation of its next big drop.
