New From Pelican: Air Cases

Interested in learning why Pelican Air cases are the lightest premium cases on the market today and are guaranteed for life? Take a look below for more information.




At up to 40% lighter than other polymer cases, innovative, sturdy Pelican Air cases are instrumental in lightening the loads of a variety of dedicated professionals: law enforcement officers, firefighters, military, or any number of intense, industrial professions. These serious professionals realize that keeping their gear safe is crucial to success, which is why they put their trust in Pelican Air cases.




Designed to cut weight without compromising durability, Pelican Air cases are molded from next-gen, lightweight HPX resin, Pelican’s proprietary formula that has the ability to rebound without breaking.

  • proven-tough, double-throw latches
  • automatic purge valve that balances air pressure
  • watertight O-ring gasket
  • new, “comic curve” lid shape
  • crushproof and dustproof

The Cairns Soft Goods Kit: An Effective Tool for Promoting Cancer Awareness and Prevention

Among the many dangers firefighters constantly confront is cancer, an especially prevalent disease in the firefighting community, according to data gathered by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the U.S. Fire Administration. In order to combat the increasing rates of cancer among firefighters – specifically, mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer with a poor diagnosis that firefighters are twice as likely to develop than the general population – many departments have issued Cancer Awareness and Prevention Directives (CAPD) to ensure gear is decontaminated and laundered after each exposure to fire.





TheFireStore and MSA have partnered to help facilitate CAPD implementation by providing a free Cairns Soft Goods Kit to accompany purchases of select composite helmets – 1010’S, 1044’S, 660’S, 664’S, Deluxe 880’s, and HP3’s – during the month of May. The Cairns Soft Goods Kit, an $80 value, includes a number of useful items:


  •        standard liner
  •        nomex earlaps
  •        Velcro tabs
  •        mesh laundering bag
