Thanks Jason! Looks bulky for day to day use but for out in the field it should be great.

Every time a new Pelican product comes up for sale, a Bill Larson gets its wings.

It would be awesome if these Pelican cases also had a purge valve, that I could hit to purge all of my texts with other ladies, and simultaneouslt delete my entire Web history all at once.

Private browsing my friend; even if you're not doing anything off the cuff it's still best practice

When Iphone cases go on sale, its a sign the next generation is about to come out.

Actually a lot of the cases will mess up the fingerprint thing that most people disable on the 5S.

I ordered one. Can't go wrong for $13.

It looks like the first case they show in the groupon is different from the last one they show in that same groupon. One has a huge dial and the other does not.

The one in the first picture is the "protector" model and all of the others are the "vault". The first picture must be wrong, because the description clearly says vault.

I've had two Pelican case epic fails - one iPad case, and one iPhone case. Never again....

If you go on the Pelican case website, they no longer list these cases for sale. I also found them on Amazon for $16. I guess there probably as good as Wolf says. LOL
