Pelican Tough Contest winners, David Sarro, Terry Specktor, and Alexander Stewart, all provided impressive stories and photographs of survival in rugged conditions, winning them each one of three grand prizes.
David Sarro found himself in a lake in Catalonia, 600 meters from the exit. However, with the aid of Pelican's HeadsUp Lite he was able to make his way out. David was impressed with the "intensity" of light and that it did not let [him] down or burn out "despite the long hours of use."
Another adventurous Pelican customer, Terry Specktor, took her Pelican case on a dive excursion to Indonesia. She used the case to store new valuables she recently purchased. However, this relaxing trip took a turn for the worse when her boat capsized. The crew used the Pelican case to stay afloat for three hours as they drifted through the ocean. Thanks to Terry's Pelican case, her gear, as well as the crew made it home safely.
Alexander Stewart put Pelican's 1150 case through one tough test on the dusty back roads of Iraq. Storing vital gear in his Pelican case, Alexander strapped the Pelican case to the back of his HMMWV. His gear survived the arduous trip, and for that he gives thanks to the protection of [his] Pelican 1150 Case.
The Pelican Tough Contest produced some intriguing stories of survival and demonstrated Pelican's durability in harsh circumstances.
