Figure someone on here might know.


Is there a source for these in Sask? I called Quinn the Eskimo in S'toon and they don't have anything right now save for some very small cases. Quinn the Eskimo here is only open three days a week so I'll check with them on Friday. Is there anywhere else worth trying? I'm hoping to find a couple of the medical supply cases as I think I would find it difficult to drill holes in a $300+ Pelican case.

The guy by Maymont if I remember right had some hard cases. The guy has a ton of military stuff.

That's the place on the way to North Battleford? I've driven past a couple times, always wondered if he might have some M101CDN's kicking around.

The last time I stopped he had a couple 1 ton trailers. I had my trailer and he's had never seen one before. If you go by there it's worth a stop, it's worth it to just meet the guy!

what size are you looking for? I haven't found anybody locally (sask) that has any on a regular basis. I was checking out roses auction for military stuff but it's very hit and miss. (in Saskatoon)

Ended up buying a hardigg and a pelican case online.

For what it's worth, I prefer the hardigg case over the pelican. I know they are now the same company.

Iím hoping to find one of these (http://www.pelican.com/cases_detail_mobile_military.php?Case=472-MED-30180802). Theyíre going for about $90 on Ebay in the states, but then itís another $90 to ship.

I really don't have anything all that interesting in mind.

I'm thinking about how I can actually make use of my roof rack (the main purpose of the rack is as a large light bar mount, which is kind of backwards). I was thinking if I wanted to put items that I didn't want soaked on the rack I could bolt a Hardigg or Pelican case on with u-brackets.

I've also been thinking about storage in the rear. I don't really want a drawer system, but I was thinking about maybe having a flat piece of aluminum cut that bolts to the existing threaded holes in the floor. Then weld on some small brackets designed to hold a case or two (or maybe a case and a fridge) in the load area.

Might just go with this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Hardigg-Case-22x18x11-/161060770170?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item257ff8517a&_uhb=1

Not as big as what I'm hoping to find, but seems to be a more common size.

This is what I'm really after, but shipping is $$: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Hardigg-33x21x13-Wheeled-Single-Lid-Hard-Shipping-Case-Military-Medical-Chest-B-/400268093236?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d31d66734&_uhb=1

The problem with a big case is that it gets heavy...fast. I don't think my wife could lift my pelican case I use for a tool box out of the back of the truck. And it's fairly small. I do highly recommend a pelican/hardigg for a tool box though. I love it. Way better then an ammo can or a bag and everything stays dry.

I always visioned using a roof rack for light things that are either wet already or could get wet... Stuff like tarps, poles, life jackets etc. Have you looked at a Rocket box from thule or yakima? Way bigger and lighter. Not cheap either.

We got rid of our drawer system as well. To big and bulky. My plan is to go with a fridge slide and one drawer. I do like the drawer system for easy access to things instead of removing X amount of items to get at the stuff you want.

I have the Hardigg iM3300 case and REALLY like the clasps over the pelican cases. It's a big brute.

if I had a $1000 burning a hole in my pocket I would be all over this:

I've seen those tool kits before and I absolutely love them. $1000 is a bargain really.

Your line of thinking about using the roof rack for wet/light items is probably a better way of looking at things. No sense in raising COG for no real reason. My Scepter cans will probably find their way up there for trips until I decide which rear swing out Iím going to go with and theyíre quite heavy so keeping additional weight down low would be smart.

I agree. I added up all the kit once and was in about $1700 for just the tools. If a guy wanted a buy it all at once option, those would be it,
