We purchased this for use as a college footlocker. Saw many a flimsy thin plastic footlocker failing on dorm move-in day. The Action Packer can be used as a step (up to the top bunk), a seat, table and, of course, it stores a ton of stuff. It would be great if they had a version with wheels.
A little on the expensive side, but we are hoping that it will last long enough to justify the expense. The main problem with this tote is that the lid is hinged and has nothing to stop it from being over-extended and breaking off. We installed little chains on the interior of one side of the lid to prevent this from happening.
I bought this to lug around all my atv gear. I took two u bolts and mounted it to my atv trailer. couldnt be happier! very sturdy for the price and beats expensive counterparts. i can easily fit two atv helmets, a tool box, roost protector, goggles, all my ties downs and tow straps and still has room
Using these bins for an emergency kit that will be left outside in the elements. Needs to be animal/rodent proof which regular Sterlite & Rubbermaid don't seem to be. These bins have a lip around the bottom and top that interlock which keeps the contents inside safe and dry. The front clip snaps nice and tight. I won't use a lock on mine since they're for emergency purposes and trying to locate a key after a earthquake or disaster wouldn't be possible, I might put some type of device through the locking hole to secure the clasp from being opened by larger rodents. I also used 5 gallon buckets to store canned food and other items in, marked the contents on the outside of the bucket and then put that inside these bins for a more safe storage (buckets have to lay on their side, too tall to put upright.) These bins are easier than using a deep garbage can that you have to unload to check expiration dates on food and water. They are plenty deep and wide to accomodate all types of supplies.
Very good storage container. Seemed water proof and rodent proof. Fit into my dog boxes perfectly.
It's big :) Yeah, you know that... It holds tubes & tools up to 30" long. The annoying thing is that... as it's big... you put a lot of stuff in it and... it gets heavy... I wished they had a similar model with wheels...
Product worked perfectly for my application. Lots of room, heavy duty construction and easy access.
We use the Rubbermaid 35-gallon Action Packer on our Polaris RZR 570. Great container for your tools, water, food, clothing, etc. when exploring on an RZR in the deserts and national forests. Price was great for a durable carrier.
This is a strong sturdy container, but it doesn't have large enough inner dimensions to fit the item I wanted to store in it. It would be helpful if they were listed along with the outer dimensions. I will have to return it and find something larger.
Cheap light weight plastic, cheap latch design, no side carrying handles, poor hinge design. Incorrect dimensions given...tapers a good bit toward bottom. I went with a Contico Pro Tuff Bin from Lowes instead. Same price, much better built product, built in lock.
I have (2)-24 gallon, (2)-35 gallon, that I just purchased from Walmart Site-To-Store, and (1)-48 gallon Rubbermaid Action Packer boxes that I keep all my hunting clothes in. They keep them dry and scent free (especially if you throw in an earth scent wafer).
When it comes to storage, I have purchased Rubbermaid, big box store brands, and nothing is as durable as these containers. They are not perfect for every use but if you need a rugged secure container it is worth the extra coin to get one.
Strong, sturdy and light!
I have bought 3 of these now as camp trunks for my 3 oldest kids. The 35 gallon Action Packer fits much more than the classic camp or college trunk and it isn't metal, so it won't rust. It also has a great latch that has a place for a combination or key lock, if needed. These are well worth the money and a much better bargain than the hundred dollar college trunks. When not being used for camp, they are great for storage in the garage and easily stack.
Corners inside box could be a thicker plastic to prevent getting holes in them. We use for all types of safety supplies and they get handled a lot, so we coat the corners with caulk to amke them last a little longer. Holds a good bit and they are somewhat waterproof.
I can fit a lot into each one and then stack as needed. The only drawback
is that they don't lock together when stacked. They can slip easily. I put a piece of non-stick shelf liner been them. That helps.
The Rubbermaid 35-Gallon "Action Packer" meets all my expectations at being a big container to hold things. I can see it from here, and it has yet to fail at holding the things I put in it. I would definitely buy another if I needed something of equal size and durability to hold more of my things in the same manor that the one I now own, holds my things. I only don't like that I can't see the things I've put into my Rubbermaid 35-Gallon "Action Packer" when it's closed. Sometimes I forget what I put in it and have to open it to check, but the top opens easily which is helpful. Overall, I enjoy the way the Rubbermaid 35-Gallon "Action Packer" holds my belongings, and I recommend it to anyone who needs 35 Gallons of things held in a Rubbermaid container.
only owned this for a month and so far good. appears durable. havent stood on it yet. if it can hold my 200 lbs for a few seconds without warping, bending or breaking then the bin is definitely worth it. three stars for cost. i expected a deal from walmart...
I bought this to use to keep personal items in at a barn. I had it shipped to my home. As I dragged it out of the box, in my driveway, the plastic surface became scuffed. I was surprised,
as I had selected this item hoping for rubbermaid type durability. The walls and latch of this trunk
are hard plastic and far more brittle and I suspect weak than I hoped for. I was thinking
harder, scuff resistant surface, and maybe some resiliency. I am afraid this will break easily, and just be like any old plastic box. It looks stronger in the pictures and from the outside than it is in person. I will see how it holds up over time and usage.
I use it to hold snowmobile gear in trailer everything fits great bibs coat helmet gloves boots and masks
Lids locks tight and strong enough to sit on
