A Pelican Case is perfect for a bike because they are "Unbreakable, watertight, dustproof, chemical resistant and corrosion proof...just some of the features that Pelican™ offers and total protection for your equipment. The Pelican dry box is made of ultra-high-impact structural copolymer that makes it extremely durable. Its exclusive 1/4" (6.4 mm) neoprene o-ring and ABS latches seal perfectly and it includes an automatic purge valve for quick equalization after changes in atmospheric pressure. Your equipment can fit into the high-density foam of the case for total subjection and protection against impact, vibration or shock. This case is NATO codified and tested to IP-67 (Ingress Protection). You break it, Pelican replaces it... forever."

<p>This might be a nice way for someone to lug around an SLR on their bike. Especially if you could find a way to make the lid open facing the saddle.</p>
<p>Nice clean Job, looks great! :{) </p>
All due respect, Instructables is a site for free sharing of information and inventions, not a site to sell products on. Instructables, not product assembly manuals.. Am I wrong..?
Said the man with nothing to share or contribute ,if you don't like it why bother...beside it's still a HACK so unless you read between lines, good luck with that assembly manual.
<p>True, but he took several different products along with his own tools, and modified them. People post IKEA hacks all the time. Pelican cases are fairly common, and he is suggesting a new way to use them. </p>
<p>Wow, I love this idea. I didn't know what a pelican case was, so thanks for the comments.</p>
<p>Can I have the basket you didn't use. Seriously I'd be more than happy to zip tie it to my bike</p>
I live in the 33770 zip code figure the postage and PLEASE get back with me. &amp; Thank You.
Great idea! Very practical; looks good; what's not to like?
<p>Love Pelican cases, they were a big seller in the camera store I worked in. However, if you drill holes in the case, there is no return...might want to use a mounting system which doesn't penetrate the case?</p><p>Great idea, though, if you have an old case lying around.</p>
<p>I Think this is a really great idea! I sometimes ride to work and sometimes have papers or other items with me that this would be a great way to keep them from dammage during the ride. Thanks!</p>
<p>So great! I love Pelican Cases, this is a great use for one.</p>
