Finally, a place to sing the praises of the Rubbermaid Roughneck Storage Box! I've been using these for over 20 years, both for personal storage and in my used book business. I've got well over 500 of them now, and I have seen exactly one of them ever fail (more on that below). They are not only the best tote for the money, they are the best tote in existance, bar none, and possibly the best product of any kind I've ever bought. Strong praise, I know; I don't generally rave like this, but they deserve it! Here's why: They're strong and durable. They last and last. They're flexible, so if they get bent out of shape you just pop them back into shape. If they've been bent for awhile they'll hold that shape a little for a few days or weeks, but soon you can't see the difference. Most of my old ones you can't tell from my new ones; they get a bit scuffed but basically they stay the same. I've used mine in a traveling setup for 20 years, loading and unloading, packing and unpacking them many times a year, and they are still going strong. They perform as well in very cold weather as they do in very hot weather; I use them in northern Canada in winter, and outdoors in hot Mid-Atlantic U.S.A. summers. They're stackable. I use the ten gallon size for books and magazines, and as long as the boxes are full they stack six or more high and are very stable. To be safe I'd not stack more than four or so without a wall or other stacks to keep them upright, but you could; if they are full and not overfilled they stack quite high and the stack stays stable. The totes are well-designed not to crush even when several are stacked on top of each other when they're holding lightweight to medium-weight things, such as clothes or yard sale items, but if you're storing books you have to be sure the bottom boxes of your stack are full; otherwise you will get the Leaning Tower of Storage! I have shelves that fit two stacked totes, and that works well also. Plus, the empty totes stack well, which helps to conserve space. They are water-resistant. Moisture is the enemy of books, and I never have to worry when my books are in these totes. I once accidentally left two stacked totes full of magazines in the yard for 2 months, through several bad storms, and the magazines were still in perfect condition. The totes are waterproof, but of course the lid does not make a waterproof seal, so as long as you don't actually submerge the whole tote in water, the water's not going to get in. Rain is no problem, no matter how hard it rains or in what direction. They look nice. My show booth is hunter green, and the hunter green totes look classy. In the storage sheds, the stacks of totes arranged neatly on shelves are so much more attractive than odd boxes or other tacky-looking totes. Even in the house, they look nice enough that you don't have to hide them in closets and under beds (as long as your stack is all the same color). They keep my stuff free of dirt, bugs, and critters. Mice and such can't get in unless they chew through the box, which they are capable of doing, but I've never had that happen, though I haven't stored food in them long-term. We have had mice, and they have gotten into drawers and shelves and made nests and pooped on things and ruined things; we switched to storing things in those shelves and drawers in totes; no more problem. Dust and dirt, like rain, don't get in. Little bugs could get in, but they don't seem to; I've never had a problem with them. I throw a few silverfish baits in the book totes, and a few mothballs in the sweater totes, just in case. They are comfortable to move and carry, too. The handles fit my hands well, and the sizes are not unweildy. The lids are not prone to popping off. They are the perfect fit for my needs. For books and magazines, I use the 10-gallon size. The larger totes are too heavy when filled with books and magazines, and their narrower bases aren't ideal. Two stacks of magazines or large books, or four stacks of ordinary size books fit perfectly in one 10-gallon tote. Plus, you can mail them; on book-buying trips, I can mail books home in the totes to save space in the van. I also use the totes, mostly still the 10-gallon, which are the most convenient size for me, but also the 14-gallon, for other purposes. Besides the ordinary household uses (clothes, linens, holiday decorations), I use them for dogsledding and horse-camping trips, and in the tack room. One tote each for dog harnesses, sled bags, dog booties, baggies of pre-measured dog or horse food, horse blankets, saddle pads, etc., etc. We do pack people food in the totes for camping trips and have never had a problem. We pretty much just use them for everything! Drawbacks and problems: These are very minor, few and far between. Labels don't stick well on them, and will fall off eventually. You can write on the totes themselves, but I don't like to, as I re-use them. I had one tote that just completely disintegrated once, which was very weird; you could just crumble it in your hands. It had been in a storage space for several years. I'd love to know what the deal was on that one, Rubbermaid; I figured it was just one from a bad batch of plastic; all the other totes in the stack were fine, and are still fine. But I'd say that one tote out of well over 500 in constant use for 20 years is a pretty good average! In conclusion (finally!), thank you so, so much, Rubbermaid, for this wonderful product! I recommend these to everyone. I've tried the others, and they simply don't hold a candle to these. Never stop making them; there is no replacement!

Product is great but product dimensions are not the sizing at the bottom of the container ; they merely reflect the opening at the top of the container , therefore won't fit items that would be accomodated by the so called size because of tapering of the container from top to bottom .

Proven Endurance!

By tropicaldaze

from West Palm Beach

Comments about Rubbermaid® 10 gal Roughneck Storage Box, Dark Indigo Metallic:

I've used these Roughneck totes for years now and I plan on continuing to use them because I move often (military). These are excellent for storage and pretty much indestructible. I store my off season wardrobe in them with a dryer sheet or two to keep them contents smelling wonderful. I also have my accumulated overseas military "memories" in these and use duct tape to seal the totes shut. I write my name, address, email address, and phone number on them in case of a hurricane. My only complaint is that they are difficult to find in stores these days and I had to order online.

I like the durability,stackabilityand quality of the Roughneck storage box. It lasts much longer than any other brand. It costs a little more, but worth it.

Best totes I've ever purchased.

By jbb1

from Michigan, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid® 10 gal Roughneck Storage Box, Dark Indigo Metallic:

Great totes, great size. The only problem I have is finding them. I used to see them all over the place, now I can only find the 14 gallon ones online. I also wish there were more colors available.
