Not as described! Bought this item specifically because it said that the lid has a “weather tight foam seal around the inside of the lid”. Yea no foam seal. No seal of any kind actually. No shipping invoice or receipt of purchase included either. I bought these online marked down 40% for $100 for a set of four I don’t see $25 apiece in these containers whatsoever. They are normally $150 and that’s outrageous.
We have limited storage and use weatherproof durable storage for camping gear, stuck under the deck. That space is mostly but not completely out of the weather, and we've started a camping season discovering crates full of water or bugs. I am very hopeful these crates will solve my problems. Highlines:
Nice neutral earth colors
Very durable construction - tops are reinforced. Strong enough to be stackable when when full.
Handles lock down top from wind and varmints.
Stack very efficiently for storage (see picture)
Lockable with a padlock in the corners (or to tie down in truck). Or a bungee across the top corner to corner through these would stop a racoon or bear.
Raintight and bug tight. Top overlaps and has a seal. For camping think of the seal as a way to lower the probability a critter would smell food stored in it. Having watched from our tent while a family of skunks chew through a loose lid box rather than get sprayed by them, this was important to me!
Not a lot of wasted space between crates when in use (sides are surprisingly vertical for units that stack in storage)
Look new because we just got them. Will update pictures after we've used them for trips this summer.
