“For more than 40 years our company has produced the toughest and most dependable cases for military, law enforcement and firefighter professionals. We are extremely pleased to launch a range of mobile electronics cases with the same kind of protection for consumers,” said Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican. “The Pelican ProGear Vault and Pelican ProGear Protector series provides your iPhone 5 with exceptional protection and clear audio performance, while still allowing for use of the phone.”

Matching the sleek precision of the iPhone 5, the CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault case is slim and lightweight without sacrificing protection. Made with engineering-grade aluminum and polymer materials, the Vault’s full-enclosure design (for which it earns its name) provides vital defense from wind-driven rain, snow and dust along with insulating elastomeric shock and impact protection from a height of 72 inches.

Each function button is made with aircraft-grade aluminum for precise control. Its water-resistant membrane covers the microphone and speakers to discourage water ingress without hindering audio fidelity. The CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault case also features a durable screen cover with anti-scratch technology, an optical-grade, Dragontrail® glass camera port and flush-fitting stainless steel hex-head machine screws. The product is available in a wide variety of color combinations for an MSRP of $79.95.

To defend smartphones from daily drops and typical wear and tear, Pelican Products’ engineers have created two levels of protection in the CE1150 Pelican ProGear Protector case for the iPhone 5. Its first line of defense is a tough, shock-deflecting outer shell that saves the iPhone’s glass face from direct impact on flat surfaces. The second level is a soft, elastomeric interior lining to protect the device from scratches and impact. Additionally, the outer shell has a smooth finish to allow the case to slide easily into pockets and bags. Available in several color combinations, the CE1150 Pelican ProGear Protector Series phone case has an MSRP of $39.95.
