    Great option for missions travel

    How convenient to have rollers to manage the 50 pounds inside (allowed by airlines). Our items arrive in foreign countries in better condition and are more manageable when arriving in a third world airport location. What is even more great, is that this is such a wonderful gift to leave behind. The children's homes appreciate these footlockers to store the children's belongings, they are stackable and take up little space. These footlockers may have to be collected at a customs retaining area upon arrival in some countries, such as Venezuela. The downside is the latches aren't as durable as would be nice to have. The latches do not always withstand the intense handling and can be crushed, mishapened since the metal is not heavy duty quality. It is nice to be able to use a padlock after one's arrival.

    LOVE these!

    I currently have 4 of these footlockers (each in a different color) and plan to buy several more. I have camping gear in one, car emergency gear in another, Boy Scout banquet items in the third, and put general road trip items (coffee pots, munchies, etc) in the fourth. I'll be getting several more to store emergency clothes (for when we're working at off-road races), and other items. I'm a "grab-it-and-go" type person, and these footlockers are the right size for me to grab. I don't need to wait for one of my sons to carry them. The side handle makes it easy even for me to carry. They're stackable and really quite sturdy. I wish Walmart carried the full range of colors, including the safety orange, but I've managed to get the black, grey, teal, and pink already. That makes it nice because I don't have to label the units - I know the sleeping bags are in the pink one, the road gear is in the black, etc. The only thing that would make these better would be some sort of handle to make pulling them on the wheels less awkward. But for the price, I can live with jerry-rigging a handle.

    Road cases for local musicians

    Road cases for musicians running around a city are ridiculously expensive, even old and extremely beat-up ones. When it comes to such things as carrying powered PA speakers and monitors, or assorted gear such as cable bags, laptop bags, snakes, etc., who wants to blow $200 a pop and end up with stuff that weighs a ton and takes up a ton of space? For random gear, this footlocker is great. For the speakers, I took 2" foam cut to a large fat X shape to fit the bottom and sides and used spray adhesive for foam to make it permanent. The speakers are safe and the total cost was only $30 a speaker. It makes a serviceable case for running around town. The latches are made of cheap stamped metal and bent wire rods. I slap a strip of gaffers tape over them to keep them from snagging. The wheels are cheap as well, but they do the job (I use a collapsible cart for transporting from the van, anyway, so the wheels are not a concern).

    Good but should be better. NOT WATERTIGHT

    These Footlockers (2 per set) are excellent for storage. No food, or perishables such as protien bars or meal replacements. As other reviewers stated, they ARE NOT WATERPROOF. Not even water resistant. I knew this when I bought them, as I'm using them to store equipment INDOORS, that are not affected by humidity or insects. I would not reccomend this as a footlocker for camp. The gap between the lid and locker is enough for ants, roaches, water, ect to get into. Clothes will mildue in this footlocker if it's stored in a damp basement. Running a dehumidifier will make a difference, but at $$ energy bills. I guess one could try and seal the lid's gap with a dense foam, but the hinge area would still be compromised. So why bother? It's great for heavy garage items, tools, paint, hobby equipment and the like. They stack great and the wheels are durable for smooth floors. Get my drift?
    I just purchased my third set of Sterilite Footlockers. I've got two kids in college and these lockers are perfect. So easy to manuver down sidewalks and hallways with the built-in wheels. When closed, the lids have a good rimmed edge that allows you to grab hold, pick it up and carry it. You can easily stack one upon the other without worry of one sliding off. My kids have stood on them, used them for seating and stuffed them just short of bursting at the seams. For security, just add a pad lock. The first set is over three years old and has seen many moves from home to college, dorm to summer storage. The price can't be beat. Two lockers for the price you could have paid for just one.

    Not bad for 20$

    Bought 2 One came with a latch not attached, but for 20$?? It’s still a good deal!

    Sterilite 16G Footlocker... A ok!

    I like the Sterilite 16G Footlocker and would have given it 5 Stars, unfortunately the wheels don't work smoothly. I do like how you can put a padlock on it to keep valuables somewhat safe in a college dorm. Lightweight and it will get a lot of use.


    Its a little flimsy. It work great for me. It holds my jack and jumper cables for my car.

    Sterilite Footlocker -

    To be sure, as others have already pointed out, this is not meant for outdoor storage, but if it is under cover, like in a shed, would be ok. The lip and lid could be better designed for overlap to keep water from getting in, but this is a storage locker, like you would put in your basement or closet (as I did), not a heavy duty military grade foot locker. So, this does well for organizing your seasonal decorations or in my case, organizing non-essentials in preparation for a move. The wheels work ok and the shape of the handle-grabs on the side make it easy to pick up altogether when you need to stack them.

    Good for the money

    Looks like a very sturdy and spacious container. Great for the price. Only con is that one of the wheels doesn't spin freely. I'm hoping that once there is some weight in it, it will spin better.
