‘Peli Cases – now Gorilla Proof!’

Peli Cases are Gorilla Proof!

‘Peli Cases – now Gorilla Proof!’ No gorilla, or baboon for that matter, is getting my chicken yassa on our River Gambia Expedition 2012!

We’re looking forward to receiving a couple of 1690 Pelican Cases, from Peli UK™ today. Peli Products have a great reputation for making the toughest protector cases in the world. They are also ‘waterproof and buoyant’…we are, after all, about to embark on a 1000km + River Gambia expedition – and Florio’s camera gear has to stay dry as a bone – if we are going to post our adventure photo’s, whilst on the journey, on here.
