“We chose the best gear that we could get our hands on, including Peli boxes to safeguard our camera gear, radios and satellite telephone.

At 81° North latitude, one of our plastic kayaks, with a Peli box mounted on deck, became caught in the current-driven ice pack and was thoroughly steam-rolled.  Many items loaded inside the kayak were crushed, but the Peli deck box emerged through it all unscathed.”
