A very durable small package case to carry money, keys, wallet, identification, licences, medication, etc. Including a great case for a mini first aid case. Locks shut tight, no water, dirt, or dust intrusion, keeps everything clean and dry... Always.


  • Strong, durable
  • Multi coloured
  • Stays closed in all conditions
  • Just the right size to carry and protect all the necessary and important items


  • The carabiner is sometimes in the way. But it's also removable.

As an avid outdoorsman in all weather and nature conditions, I play with land, water conditions all the time. If I'm not on the water paddling a lake or stream, then I'm on the trails backpacking or riding my ATV getting muddy or dusty.

But no matter, I want my personal items to be protected for any and all conditions. I have several of these and one stays in my ATV. That one gets used the most. It's kept my wallet and truck keys dry more than once. I have another one for my first aid kit. Never needed to use the contents yet, but when I do they will be clean and dry. 

The lock tabs keep the case closed tight all the way around right to the sealing gasket ring. I wouldn't waste too much time trialing other products as these cases have been proven and, without a doubt, they keep the contents secure, dry, and organized. 

Pelican cases come in all different sizes for the right reason. Choose one that works for you and you'll never regret it!

Got small items you need to keep safe and dry while out on the water? Look no further than this sturdy little case manufactured by Pelican.


  • Light weight
  • Extremely durable


  • Adds more bulk than a plastic self-seal bag

Pelican makes all kinds of waterproof, durable cases, perfect for transporting delicate and expensive photo/video gear. But Pelican also makes a series of smaller cases that are ideal for carrying items like cell phones, car keys, point and shoot cameras, your wallet, spare batteries, memory cards or anything else thats small. 

Just like the bigger Pelican cases these units have an 'O' ring seal to keep things dry and keep out dust, sand and grit. They also have a secure 'snap' latch to keep all contents safely inside. Another interesting feature is the clear plastic lid that allows you to see at a glance just what's inside. 

The Pelican 1040 Micro case is the perfect companion to take along when you're heading out in the canoe or kayak.

As far as fitting a "smartphone" inside one of these Pelican problem. I'm not familiar with the Samsung Infuse model, but we've used it with a Samsung Galaxy III, with room to spare. Inside dimensions are about 6 1/4 x 3 5/8 X 1 1/4.
