  • Pelican Power Pack v2.0 [Modularized] I finally get around to posting this new and improved set-up. My first version combined the everything into one small pelican case. It was severely limited by the now relatively smal 12Ah SLA. I managed to destroy the battery by over charging it with a cheap charger. I planned on redoing it with a deep cycle SLA of the same size, but never got around to it. I picked up a few used items to complete this version 2.0. Though the components were already set up in a similar fashion, I managed to redo it and make it my own.  The benefits of this set up: Modularity. I can swap things around and make it easier to transport ...

  • Moleskine Mod: Pen Holder I know I am not the first, but I thought that I would share what I did. I used the plastic from a DVD case, a lighter to form it, and a glue gun to set everything in place. You can also see the slightly modified bookmark. I hated how it flapped around, so I slipped on some shrink tube, tied a knot, trimmed the excess, and voila!And of course it’s not complete without a WESBC sticker on it!

  • Pelican EDC Edition Pelican 1170 + 2x Cocoon Grid-it CPG5's. My take on the EDC "bag".I got my inspiration from DArtagnan's post. Thinking about taking out the items that I still normally pocket carry (most of the bottom portion) and throwing in a small bag/organizer for stuff I don't need that often. Note that I don't carry this everywhere, but it is with me or near me when I go out. Since I practically have everything in my car this is a way for me to keep track of my EDC items that I chose not to put in my pockets that day. It's mostly if I'm going out in a friends car or in ...

  • Pelican Macboook Case Pelican 1470I've had this set up for a little over a year already. It's been carried with me from off-road trips to studying for finals. It's protected my macbook many times from all impacts that it encountered. A couple months ago the purghe valve popped off and Pelican sent me a replacement free of charge. Another example of their top notch customer service and a warranty.
