Pelican was founded in 1976 by Dave Parker in a Torrance, California garage. An avid Scuba diver since age 11, Parker recognized the need for rugged flashlights and cases that wouldn’t leak or fail. So he set out to build a better product than any other on the market. With years of hard work and sacrifice, Pelican™ Products became a reality with its first product patent, the Pelican Float. The legendary SabreLite™ flashlights and Protector™ Cases soon followed.
