Â by NCGA Perfect Photo Album Storage
I know digital pictures are the rage but there is nothing like holding a photo album in your hands and flipping through the pages. I will be moving soon and need to store my belongings for a while before I move into a new place. I was very concerned about storing my 25+ photo albums until I found the 36qt IRIS Weathertight Clear Tote. The latches are very strong and provide a super tight seal to keep out air, moisture and pests. My albums are tall and will fit perfectly in them. I bought more than I needed for the albums because I thought of many other uses for them.

These Totes are very sturdy and seal well. They are a good size for me to handle and stack well. I will be purchasing more to replace the flimsy totes I have.

Â by MaryInMountLaurelNJ A Personal Historian's Dream
Not many households are able to put a personal archive in cold storage or in neatly compiled archival-grade museum boxes. As a personal historian I advise people to reorganize and digitize or photograph their treasured family memories. I tell everyone to store their most valuable family moments in these weathertight boxes. They'll keep them safe from water and typical household pests. Creating a family archive takes time and an investment The Container Store makes that idea very easy by offering numerous sizes of IRIS Weathertight Containers. This fantastic product that is both sturdy enough to store and transport. I keep one in the trunk of my car. I love the fact that this product is made from a thicker plastic than less expensive containers. On two projects for clients, I've stacked four on top of each other without any weight issues. I've even created signage for the front of the box that says "Family Archive." In case of an emergency, if I had to leave my house in a hurry (think wildfires or flooding) I'd reach for a few specific and labeled boxes.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by StorageMaster Best Storage Ever!
I purchased, and repurchased, and repurchased again the clear weathertight totes to store all of my off-season clothing. In addition, I have stored precious memorabilia for our children as well as photograph albums, books, and just about everything else you can think of. I have them stacked on closet floors, in the garage, in the basement. I print out labels using a label maker (one for the top, one for the front and one for one side of the bin. I love the they are transparent as well. I store sizes of clothing and sports-related clothing, clothing for our children. Hats and scarves. Precious things our mothers knit that we want to save. Hint: If you add a dryer sheet to the items, they smell especially fresh when you open the bin or unpack clothing for the coming season.

I have these containers in multiple sizes all over the house. I love the sturdiness and how easily they stack on top of each other. The lids keep all unwanted bugs and dust out! I recommend these to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by theweisferret The dust eliminator
I bought these to store things in my attic because the old ones I had allowed dust to get in. No dust anymore. All my items are stored neatly and without getting dirty anymore. They are easy to use, you can fill them up to the top and you can see what's in them at a glance. I find these a much better way go as far as general purpose storage goes.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ContainerLarry Love this line of boxes!
After years of trying a variety of other containers and plastic boxes, these boxes are my all-time favorite because of how well they are designed. The plastic is thicker and the lids lock on tight, resisting water, dust and bugs. I've used these to store bike shoes, documents, toys and many other things. They are not waterproof-- as the label shows -- so you don't want to submerge them, but they are many times better than other boxes that have lids that only lightly snap on, leaving plenty of air space for unwanted effects. These boxes also work extremely well stacked on top of each other and with Elfa shelving. The one disadvantage is you can't just sneak something in the box by bending one corner of the lid! You have to unlock all four corners, but that is a small price to pay for keeping the contents dry, safe from bugs and dust free! I will buy many more of these as I make them our standard storage container for our garage!

The 8" tall version of this weather tight container is perfect storage under the bed, even ones with a motorized base. Buy a bunch and the shipping is free. Excellent!

I needed a plastic container to put two Brother Labelmakers into. Most containers I found locally were either too wide or too narrow. I was so delighted to have found one that fit and wasted no space as I am going to use them in a storage room.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GodzillasRus I converted an 8' closet into a built-in bookcase and needed containers. These were used for storing our NES game machine, controllers and about 80 games. They all fit in a single container and were clear, so we could see what was inside. I ended up coming back and buying a total of six of these to house (and corral) various video game systems with their associated controllers and cables. Finally we can find them but they are out of the way! The boxes fit perfectly in my deep bookcase and are very very sturdy.

Used these for storage to hopefully prevent any problems in a humid area. This time interior storage since I liked them originally. Seals have been a plus.

Â by Krabbit4 Definitely Buying More Of These!
Been buying these in various sizes in order to help organize my storage closet. They are very sturdy, and nest sturdily when stacking. The lids snap closed securely.
I have not had them long enough to speak to quality of the "air- and watertight seal", but so far I am incredibly pleased with these bins, and plan to purchase more to get my garage stuff out of cardboard boxes and into these babies.

I have bought these before and can't get enough.
They are wonderful!
We have had a very humid summer and live in an area with heat and humidity.
I store extra paper products in them along with keeping seasonal seasonal items from getting ruined by pests.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PinkElephant241 Great product
If you have need of water tight containers, perhaps for a garage or leaky storage room, these are a great find. They stack neatly on top of each other, keep out bugs, water and mildew. These totes come in several sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pampoozie Good but I thought it was larger
I didn't measure the specs before I purchased. I somehow thought 19 qt. was larger than it turned out to be. It's fine, I just thought it was larger.

Â by Whitsend Excellent product...
This is an excellent product for storage in a dirty or damp environment like a garage. Seals out dust and bugs and moisture.
My shelves held a stack of a larger tote with a smaller one on top of that. They are quite sturdy. See thru design is great, very clear. I still labeled the ends though.
One carton had some broken pieces when they arrived. However, customer service was great about getting the replacements to me.
I bought both these clear ones and some of the black totes too because I wasnt sure which I'd like best. Both are great with the main difference being the seals and of course visibility. You'd have to decide for yourselves which is best for your application. They are equally sturdy and stackable. I just liked the clear ones better and price (on sale) was similar.
Project in progress...

Rated 4 out of 5Â by kmom So far I like what I see
Purchased these to store items in an area that isnt weather tight. - storage area at beach. Reviews indicated the weather tight feature is just that - weather tight. With these and dehumidifier running hoping to keep things in good working order. Stay tuned and time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AuntChelle73 Love these totes
Purchased the set of 6 for wedding table linens as I'm a coordinator. They are awesome. I love the lock feature which helps keep bugs out since I have to store these in my garage. Fixing to purchase another case or two and just reorganize all the wedding supplies. The clear plastic is perfect to see what the content is and a black permanent marker is perfect for writing on the outside, what's inside the container. For mess ups, I just used my Young Living Lemon Essential Oil to erase the marker, to fix the mistake.

I purchased three of the 74 qt totes. I was able to fit a lot of my winter clothes and I like the fact they are clear so you can see what's inside them. I also like that you can stack them together. I will definitely purchase more.
