Built to protect against the harshest elements and the rigors of extreme travel.
The Pelican U100 Elite Backpack was the worlds first backpack with an integrated, protective hard laptop case. Pelican’s protective hard shell cases are the ultimate standard for waterproof and crushproof protection.

Working very closely with Pelican’s engineering team, a half size pelican case was designed to create a seamless connection from soft bag to hard case.
Any hesitation you may have to hire Fernando as a soft goods designer is herewith removed. I threw every monkey wrench I could find at him and it never slowed him down.
Fernando pioneered with Pelican a patented integration of plastics and fabrics. He sweated every bar stitch, zipper pull and material choice. His rendering skills gave our execs the confidence to green-light the product line, and he nursed the tech packs through our QC and Engineering for process control.
Most importantly Fernando was the voice of the product, working diligently over a year with our foreign vendor to bring a series of 11 innovative backpacks to market.
He also has the patience of a saint, and attention to detail that supports the work.
