Since the 1970s, Pelican has dominated the world of hard-sided gear cases with popularity spreading from weekend campers and day hikers to extreme adventurers. Not only well-built right here in the U.S., but the brand’s range versatility is quite impressive as well, featuring sizes as large as airline carryons to shells small enough to fit only your phone.

Pelican’s Micro Cases have always positioned the company as a big player in the EDC space. However, its latest release redesigns the diminutive gear protectors while also adding some things. The new Micro Case Series features three sizes, the M40, M50, and M60 — overhauling the previous 1040, 1050, and 1060 models, respectively, by increasing the interior space and shrinking the exterior dimensions. For instance, the M40 boosts the inside by nearly 4cu.in while removing 1.5” of surface area from the outside for easier carry.

Classic specs return, such as the IP67 water- and dirt-resistance rating, the o-ring watertight seal, and the automatic pressure equalization valve. However, new features have been added, including a padlock hole for added security, a new removable no-slip liner, and double closing latches on the outside.
