Pelican Elite Coolers Now Available in Realtree EDGE and Realtree Fishing


Premier outdoor brands Pelican and Realtree have come together to offer sportsmen Pelican’s trusted cooler performance outfitted in Realtree’s latest new patterns – Realtree Edge and Realtree Fishing. Pelican’s partnership with Realtree provides an opportunity for consumers to show their passion for the outdoors without sacrificing performance and protection for their gear.


Pelican was founded in 1976 by Dave Parker and his wife, Arline, in their Torrance, California, garage. An avid scuba diver since age 11, Parker recognized the need for rugged flashlights and cases that wouldn’t leak or fail and set out to build a better product than any other on the market. After years of hard work and sacrifice, Pelican Products became a reality with its first product patent, the Pelican Float™. The legendary SabreLite™ flashlight and Protector Cases soon followed.


Pelican Products, Inc. eventually grew to the ranks of global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance protective cases, temperature-controlled packaging solutions, advanced portable lighting systems and rugged gear for professionals and outdoor enthusiasts alike.


The company’s 200,000 square feet corporate headquarters in Torrance serves as the home office for nearly 1,300 employees worldwide. The company has expanded around the globe and now maintains 22 international sales offices.


“At Pelican, ‘good enough’ doesn’t cut it, and our coolers are no exception,” said Bob Shortt, president of Pelican Products’ Consumer Division. “Pelican Elite coolers perform to extreme standards — better than any cold locker, tougher than any icebox - and we stand behind our lifetime guarantee.”


The Pelican Elite Cooler, now offered in Realtree EDGE and Fishing patterns, and available in 20QT, 50QT and 70QT options, exhibit the superior Pelican quality that made the company a global leader with features that every outdoorsman and woman will love. These coolers are perfect for a day on the water, in the woods or at the campsite, barbecue, big game, beach, park or any other activity or location where you need to keep your food and beverages cold, stored and protected.
