Clear Watertight Totes
Purchased these for my college students last year and absolutely loved them! My students gave me feedback from their dormmates who wanted to know where they got them and how much they liked them. I liked them for their stackability and being able to see the contents. I got several for my own use after seeing how well-made they were. The variety of sizes is also a big plus.

I needed to store some things that must be kept clean and dry. I bought the 19 qt. Watertight Tote Clear 17-1/2" x 11-3/4" x 8" h 10060956, which is far better than anything I've found so far. It has a foam gasket, 4 latches that keep the lid on securely, and seems sturdy enough for the heavy items (about 20 lbs.) I placed in it. The lid had reinforcing ribs which should help keep it from deforming or breaking if you stack containers. I added a desiccant pack and keep it in my unfinished basement. So far I am pleased.
The specs list the maximum outside dimensions, so keep this in mind when sizing for your needs.
It's a wee bit on the expensive side, but the quality and features made it worthwhile.
BTW: I noticed no unusual or offensive odor from the plastic. I did not give it the drop test, but it doesn't seem to be brittle.

The price paid for the product is quite high for the quality of the product.

Best life saver for storage
I have already purchased 4 of these containers. The locks on the cover are great. They keep all the items inside the container leveled. GREAT BUY !!!
