PFC Cases Spotlight


For over 40 years, the Plastic Framing Company, Inc. (PFC) has been a leading producer of some of the most rigid blow molded cases made in the U.S.A, and as the creators of the Double Wall Blow Molded Cases, a carrying case from PFC is one that you can count on to protect your product.

The manufacturing process of Blow Molding HDPE (high density polyethylene) plastic creates an incredibly durable case that provides top of the line strength and impact resistance. Moreover, since blow molding uses melted plastic and a hollow tube to then mold each individual case, as opposed to snapping several weaker plastic parts together to create a cases, a PFC case is substantially more durable and resistant to shock, and overall wear and tear than your standard carrying case.

At CasesPlus, we carry over 60 different PFC cases that are all affordably priced and made from the same environmentally friendly polyethylene plastic. Check out a couple of the features of the PFC cases we carry below to help you figure out which plastic carrying case will best protect your product.

The Case of Protection for your Laptop and Tablet


With the holiday season upon us, you may have put a new laptop or tablet on your “wish list.”  Whether your portable electronic device comes wrapped with a holiday ribbon or you purchased it for yourself, these devices have become amazingly lightweight and compact enough to literally take them anywhere you go.

One thought to consider when toting your device, is the increased chance of damage due to bumps, dings, and even accidentally dropping it. After all, it would be great if your new laptop or tablet could last for many holiday seasons to come.

There are so many choices when it comes to protective laptop and tablet cases, some are simply covers meant more for esthetics and offer little or no protection. While this type of case cover may work for some, you may want to consider a bit more protection especially if you plan to take your device with you whether for work or pleasure. Whatever your situation may be, you may have decided that a case is a good solution to help protect your electronic device from damage.

Traveling Well: Selecting Quality Luggage by ProGear Luggage


Have you ever dreamed of exploring the Colosseum in Rome, skiing down the slopes of the Swiss Alps or maybe a relaxing riverboat cruise down the Mekong River?  These are all great destinations that many of us will only dream about visiting, but for those lucky enough to travel, you quickly learn that the destination is only part of the adventure.  Getting to and from is the other part.

We have all heard or even experienced first-hand how our luggage runs a hard obstacle course from the time we check-in at the airport until we reclaim it at our destination; slung by time-pressed baggage handlers onto carts and trolleys with some of the hardest hits coming when it slides down the chute into the luggage carousel. So choosing well-made durable luggage, especially if you travel a lot, is important to ensure all your possessions are transported safely, securely and without damage to your contents.

Pelican known for designing high quality cases has designed the ProGearTm Elite Luggage. This line of luggage offers durability, mobility and security which are all features you will want to consider when making the decision on your next luggage purchase.

How durable should luggage be?

Your luggage needs to be able to withstand extreme tossing, fumbling and dropping from even the clumsiest of baggage handlers.  While durability is important, you still want a case with stylish design and that is exactly what the ProGear Elite luggage offers you.  Made of molded high impact polymer material, these cases are able to withstand extreme weight loads eliminating the issue of your luggage being crushed or damaged during transit.

Pelican’s sleek and modern dark charcoal case offers six attractive trim colors allowing you to configure luggage to fit your personal style, while making it easy to recognize at baggage claim.

Can your luggage protect its contents from the elements?

The ProGear Elite Luggage does an outstanding job of protecting your contents from the outside elements. Fitted with a watertight O-ring seal which blocks moisture from getting in, this luggage is able to resist almost everything; even water when your luggage is left standing on the tarmac in the rain.

Is your luggage lightweight and easy to handle?

This rugged, yet lightweight luggage offers the most structural integrity and handling without the weight typically associated with hard-side cases.  It incorporates a sturdy dual wheel design making maneuvering through airports, train stations, and even the city sidewalks a breeze.

Equipped with a comfortable retractable handle that does not take up valuable interior packing space is just one more feature of the ProGear Elite Luggage.  With this extra interior space bringing home a souvenir or two from your next trip, just got easier!

Is your locking system TSA Approved?

The security system for luggage is an important consideration for the protection of your belongings. With the ‘built-in’ TSA approved locking system there is no need to deal with a cut padlock or lost luggage keys ever again. The three-digit combination lock with a TSA bypass key helps keep your items safe, yet still allowing TSA agents to inspect your bag when you’re not around.

Claiming your personal contents from the baggage carousel due to a broken zipper or ‘popped’ luggage closures is never going to be an issue with the ‘Press and Pull’ latch design found on the ProGear Elite luggage.  These recessed latches are strategy placed on three sides of the case to ensure that your contents remain securely intact even when one latch is accidentally left unhooked.

What size luggage best fits your needs? 

Now that you have selected your destination, it’s time to pick the right luggage pieces to best fit your travel needs.  Pelican ProGear Elite Luggage is available in three sizes from the 22” Carry-on, which is a convenient size able to easily be stored in the overhead bin compartment of the airplane.  The 27” Weekender and 30” Vacationer offer you manageable luggage for your longer travel plans.

Whichever size case you select, you may want to consider how you are going to organize your personal items securely within your luggage.  It’s easy with the optional “Enhanced Travel System” designed to fit within the ProGear Elite Luggage.  It features a detachable interior lid organizer, a toiletry kit, shoe sack, removable garment bag and a separate laundry bag to ensure that your personal contents are at your fingertips once you have arrived.

As you can see, an investment in better quality luggage will not only last longer, but it will remain looking good, protect your contents while enhancing your experience with hassle-free travel for many years to come.

We have come a long way from the days when we still had plain old coolers that we took with us when we on a picnic, or when we visited a beach, or even when we went camping. We have made several steps to improve the experience by ensuring the freshness of the food and drinks that we take. A testament to this is the existence of the Elite Pelican Coolers. Let’s take a look at the unique features that the Elite Pelican Coolers offer, which makes them the perfect modern-day coolers for all your needs.

  1. Elite Pelican Coolers can retain ice for up to 10 days

Also, when you camp in the wilderness, you won’t even worry about your perishables because they are sure to be kept fresh with your Elite Pelican Cooler.

  1. Elite Pelican Coolers are bear-resistant

The Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC) certifies elite Pelican Coolers Elite-line as bear-resistant.

Aside from the fact that using bear-resistant containers would be to your advantage, would it not be nice to know that you are doing your part in protecting the grizzlies from harm that may be caused by eating something they shouldn’t – not to mention that you are also keeping your items, such as food, a little safer than you would by placing them in regular containers?

Elite Pelican Coolers have met the bear-resistant design and structural standards, but it is not a guarantee that a grizzly bear cannot gain entry into these products.

Yes, wheeled! Some variants of the Elite-line are wheeled, giving you extra convenience.  That’s a nifty feature that some coolers just don’t bother to add.

With the wheeled Elite Pelican Coolers, you don’t need to worry anymore about how much stuff you bring with you. In addition, these wheels are heavy duty and are sure to support the maximum weight capacity of your cooler.
