These 87 Quart Weather Tight-Store-IT All Storage Bins are fantastic! I have been looking for some great storage bins that seals tightly and these are it. The tops have a nice metal snap lock on each one of the handles sorta like old mason jars that adds that extra seal to lock out anything that might try to get in it. They are durable and sturdy. I plan to buy more soon for my basement organization.

Really impressed with these storage bins, especially how great they lock. Most other bins just snap and over time they stop closing properly. But I can see that these are going to last a long time. They stack well on each other and hold a lot of stuff. These are really handy now because I'm redoing my entire garage and I needed large, reliable storage containers. The shape is also very good as they are more squarer so you don't lose packing space like other bins out there. The brown color is just okay-wouldn't be my first choice but then again it is just for storage-who am I trying to impress?

Oh, you have to get these! I am using these to store sleeping bags and air mats. So far so great! Dry as bones and they ARE outside. They have a sturdy gasket in the lip of the lid so it fits snuggly over the bin. There are metal handles too, nothing wimpy about these storage bins. They can be stacked, but will shift due to smooth tops, but that is not a drawback. Easy to wipe clean and appear to be mouse proof, another added bonus!

These are very sturdy containers with some good features. The lids have a rubber gasket to make a better seal. These lids are reinforced with a grid patter to give them some strength. They have a location where you can padlock them shut for security. They also have metal handles to make carrying easier and to lock the lids in place. These by far are the best storage containers I have used when you consider how light weight they are and the features.

Big tough sealed storage. Keeps rain, dew, and bugs out. Can bang around a camp or the back of a truck. I am very impressed. The bins arrived unblemished so they are tougher than UPS. They are large, and you can fit a lot of stuff in each. The lid is quite tough, has a deep lip, a rubbery seal, and two excellent latches. You can buy an indoor bin this size for 13 bucks but the lid has no seal and would blow-away in a stiff breeze, also the low-price bins tend to crack even in light use. You can buy slam-bam dry-boxes aimed at white-water rafters but just one of those costs more than four of these IRIS boxes. These boxes are plenty sturdy to stash under an open porch, behind the shed, in the bed of a pickup truck, car-camping. The lid seal is not submarine-grade but should keep damp and bugs out. Sturdy enough to sit on. Stack them fully-loaded, foot notches keep the stack stable. When empty, all four nest not much larger than one (probably why they sell as a 4-pack). But these are too sweet to keep empty. I'm going to organize my stuff. Air-tools, plug-in tools, battery tools, and screws. Or maybe my electrical goods: junction boxes, devices, wire, fittings. Yes, there is a hole in the corner ear and they show a padlock. But even to prevent casual peeking you would have to padlock two diagonal corners. And a determined crook with a small saw or stout screwdriver could maybe bust-off the ear and get in. A ty-wrap strap through the hole is less secure than the excellent build-in latches. Maybe the best use for these holes is to tie it off so it does not slide around a truck bed.

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.

The boxes are 14 inches deep, 13 inches wide, and 27 inches long. With the top sealed, this is the largest space available in storage containers that I have seen. I converted one box to store hanging folders by installing an available frame from a local document storage chain. A $10 update allows for quite a few folders to be secured away safely. I converted one box to store electrical tools in my truck. A very good alternative to the metal boxes available, and a lost less costly. Impressed by the ability to add locks to the box to make it secure. The locks at both ends are simple and secure. Even using plastic ties adds a second level of confidence.

These are very durable and their appearance is high end. I was really pleased with the size because I could fit large bulky items in them without issue. they have great lids that snap into place and are securely attached to the box. They seem to stack very well and hold out moisture and insects from the contents. It feels save to store important items without fear of damages for long periods of time, such as holiday decorations or photo albums.

These things are tougher than you might think. Thicker plastic, and good construction. I wish teh gasket on the lids was more rubbery and less foamy, but they seal good regardless. I got these to store stuff in my shed and keep the bugs out. They'll do the job quite nicely. Good size on them, bit bigger than I would've thought. the box they shipped in was a bit beat up, but all four of these bins and lids arrived intact and ready to use in spite of that. If I end up needing mopre bins, I'll likely get more of these.

These are nice containers. The plastic seems a little less flexible and dense than some tubs I have purchased but I think they will hold up ok. The latch system is very good and they can be stacked which is a plus. I really need a larger size unfortunately for my purposes. It is very hard to figure sizes for me without seeing them in person but I will find a good use for them. They will keep things dry and clean.

    Little smaller than what I needed but they work just as well. Do like that it has all 4 corners to put a lock on, makes it easier to install on work truck.

    I did A LOT of research on weather tight bins and these were the best I found. Surprised at the high quality - very nice. 87 qt = perfect size. Price is a major downfall; these are very expensive at $30/ea. But the quality might be worth it. Weather seal easily replaceable when worn out years later.

    These boxes are sturdy and are the perfect size to use on an airline. Seem to be fairly dust and water tight. May work for light duty outside work.

    The bins all broke in the bottom corners after moving them once. These were supposed to be heavy duty but they didn’t even last a month. This is ridiculous for this price. How can I rate these LESS than one star?!

    The 87 gal was fairly larger than I expected, but I am certainly able to use them. I have a Gladiator shelf, so it extends beyond the shelf by about 5 inches but still holds there. You can use these as benches. I use these to store my bee suits, smokers, and sticky tools. One we use for files.

    Nice size. Lid is solid with reinforcement. Seems very sturdy. Can't help but wonder if the body is as solid as the lid. Latches work good. Gasket on lid looks good, not sure how it will stand up with time.

    I love these tote bins. They are very sturdy and a good size to be carried by one person. The lids are strong enough to stand on or sit on. They are great for taking camping or simply storing things in an attic.

    If you're looking for weather tight, strong storage (you can actually sit on these) this product is about the best you can find. I've purchased this same Iris product from other companies and the packaging was simply a cardboard box and the containers would arrive damaged from having no inner packing materials for support. I've got to hand it to Home Depot on this one. It was double boxed, and arranged perfectly inside to support the lids and bins, and beneath all of it was styrofoam. It all arrived in perfect condition.
