that's cool but ridiculous for $125. Add the cost of an action packer and you might as well buy an indestructible pelican case.

You go first. Very Happy

I've seen one in person. Cool, but I wouldn't pay retail for it.

Looks like a bargain for that much bling.

You'd be hard pressed to build it like that for less IF you include your labor and pay yourself $20/hr, most guys don't ever add their labor into a project like that.

I agree on the cost to produce. There is no way I could build for that price and it is a bargain if it was functional. Which I guess it is, I just don't see the value.

My comments on the ridiculous is the fact that an action packer is a POS to haul stuff around in. There are so many better boxes out there. That said, most of my chit is in action packer... But I hope to add another pelican case for my tool box.

Since when did it ever have to make sense AND be affordable? Laughing

Some guys need the bling but I agree with you, I just want practical stuff that works at a price that I can afford.
