The U.S. Army tasked Pelican with building a mobile tool chest to house tools for its maintenance engineers. Rapid deployment to harsh environments is common; arriving with your tools intact and fully functional is mission critical. Over a two year period of intensive design, research and testing, Pelican Products built the world's toughest mobile tool chest for use by the U.S. Armed Services. Over 70 tests were required, including water submersion, extreme temperature tests and drop tests from five feet fully loaded. The 0450 passed all of them. The PL0450ND Mobile Tool Chest: now ready for civilian use.

Military grade is waterproof, dustproof, crushproof, has two built-in automatic pressure equalization valves; one for the top lid and a second for the main compartment and provides ample, easy-access storage space. Quick-access beneath the top lid gives you extra storage space, three unsealed pockets on the left side to store smaller items and trolley handle and wheel system for easy transport. Tool case has two-way carrying handles, heavy-duty double-throw butterfly latches, buttress hinges and the design allows secure, stacking of multiple units. Graduated deflector ribs prevent bumps and jolts when moving case.
