Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Bought three trunks less than a year ago and I am extremely satisfied with them. Have these in my backyard under an awning. We don't have a shed so these bins were the perfect solution for extra storage in the backyard. They're easy to open, keeps the space looking organized, and you can see somewhat what is inside. The bins were exposed to all weather elements and everything inside was dry. I don't write reviews often unless it's an exceptional product. The Clear Watertight trunk is an exceptional product. Bought two more on sale for upcoming projects around the house. Don't hesitate to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Bin! I love this trunk! Airtight and stacks well. No worries about bugs or moisture. What more could I want?
Date published: 2016-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect It fits perfectly under the bed frame and in fact it fits six perfectly giving me a TON of storage space. Before I only had a couple of things that would barely fit and now with 16.5" of clearance on the bed frame this is PERFECT! It is a little expensive but since I only had to buy six it wasn't that bad. I would still buy them again without hesitation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect storage for my small apartment I ordered three of these to help corral and organize the many odds and ends in my tiny Boston apartment. These are quality bins and stack great on top of one another! I use one for Christmas decorations, another for all of our winter/ski gear, and the third to house our small collection of hiking and camping gear. Can't wait to add more, will definitely repurchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT ! I have purchased several of these trunks on at least two occasions. I love them! Lots of storage room. Very sturdy. Totally stackable. FAR superior to Rubbermaid. Totally air tight. Has a seal, so nothing can damage the contents: dust, bugs, etc. Easy to carry. Locks tightly on both sides. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect trunk, durable and well constructed Though I would prefer the trunk to be a rectangular prism (it tapers a little towards the bottom) it fits the items I need to to. The construction is excellent, the watertight feature makes it a necessity and who doesn't love to organize trunks that can stack easily!? I have a Dymo label maker and the labels to not stick well to the narrow side of the trunk so I with there was a place to either put tables or a slot for a label card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watertight trunk better than expected I bought three of these online based on reviews, and I was not disappointed when I unpacked them after doing the in-store pickup option. They are very well made and stack securely, thanks to the groove design in the top and bottom. Other reviewers have noted the seal inside the top to keep out bugs, dust, and moisture. Important note: the handles are sturdy and separate from the lid so you don't mess with the seal when you pick them up. These are well-made, useful storage containers. Worth the cost. If on sale, so much the better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watertight trunk gives me peace of mind The container store is my favorite place to shop. I was pleased to find watertight containers because of all the humidity in Florida. I bought the watertight trunk and several of the smaller watertight containers. The size of the trunk is perfect for storing my many photo albums (photos span 6 generations) from humidity. Also, with the threat of hurricanes here, I am no longer worried that my pictures will get ruined. Although the trunk is not designed to be completely submerged, by storing it on a shelf, if the roof leaks, the container will keep my albums safe. The trunks can be stored in the garage and attic (which is very humid in the summertime). I cannot use cardboard boxes because they absorb moisture and smell of mold. If you live in an area that has high humidity, I highly recommend these trunks to keep out moisture and protect your treasures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Trunk I have purchased a few of these watertight trunks and think they are wonderful! They have a tight seal and are clear so you can see what is in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Purchase I have one of these for camping and hunting gear. It spends time in the back of the truck and sees all kinds of funky weather. My gear stays clean and dry, no matter what the conditions. It holds up to being tossed in the truck, and having other gear, tools and equipment loaded on top of it. It doesn't squish down when I use ratchet straps to secure it, or if someone chooses to sit on it in camp. I plan to pick up 2-3 more and replace the crummy containers that the rest of my gear is in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best product to date This is my 10th trunk I've purchased in the last 6 months. I love the amount of items I am able to put inside this trunk and it also gives me piece of mind that it is water tight. I can also put a small lock on this trunk if I feel that is necessary. I will be buying more of these trunks in the months to come, they have replaced a lot of my old storage bins. Great quality at a reasonable price and even better now that it is on sale. Do not hesitate to buy many!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This is an excellent container. Water proof, bug proof, dust proof, etc. The lid closes and seals very well. I was able to fit a lot of stuff in each container and love the fact that is see through so that i can see what's inside. What I like most is the size (relatively big, for a container) and the handles (makes it easy to move around). Definitely worth considering.

Over 50 years of accumulation I have way more ornaments than any one should confess. My attic is overrun with box after box of them.

I like them so much that I plan to order more. (I have other things beside Christmas items you know)

Can this trunk hold hanging file folders?

How much weight can these trunks store up to?

I'd like to store China and possibly stack 2-3 trunks that feasible or will it cause the trunk/lid to crack under so much weight?
Asked by: Torganize
I don't know about weight, but I have books and other not-light collectibles inside my trunks & have 1 trunk stacked upon another, two in total. The lids are very thick and strong. However, are you extremely strong and very tall ? Because lifting it up there and off again to get to either unit, will be quite a challenge if you are loading more than two of them. The trunks themselves are heavy.

Does this trunk come with a dark grey or black lid? I will use these in a storage unit and I imagine the white lids will get pretty grungy looking.

Our Watertight Trunk is made of polypropylene, so it is very durable, and would work well for moving. We do recommend carefully wrapping the dishes, and placing it in additional boxing for extra security when transporting the items. We have provided links to some packing materials for you in our Product Recommendations section. The dimensions for this product are 30" w x 16" d x 15-1/4" h

How can it be airtight if it is not submersible?

I have been searching for airtight containers to combat a problem with pantry moths. I test airtightness by laying containers on sides in a tub of water and see if any gets inside. (Clearly, if they are not water-tight, they cannot be airtight either). I got one of these because of it's claim, but it filled with water more quickly than any other container I tried! Yet I see good reviews here, and the claim that these are both air-and-water-tight, but aren't submersible. I see that the seal is a spongy material and not silicone ( and not punched out of one piece of material, but a long piece that wraps around,ending in a seam)... Please, someone explain how it is that these can be airtight? These are quite expensive, but I would gladly pay, if they were truly pest proof (pantry moths!) and moisture proof .
Asked by: CrankyGoddess
This product has a seal that creates the airtight fit. While it is water resistant, it is not designed to be submerged as it can compromise the seal and cause water to get in. The product works well against pests, it keeps dust out, and it is a great solution for items that need extra protection. We recommend contacting Customer Solutions if you have any additional questions or concerns.

The 1965 Pearson Commander 26 came into her life when she met a sailor in San Francisco and they bought it for $350. The sailor has long set sail, but Holly's Golightly has stayed in her tender loving care, as she has totally refurbished it into a fabulous living and entertaining vessel.
