I should probably add that the "waterproof box" isn't really 100% waterproof -- there are a couple of small holes near the handle that would allow moisture to escape.

But I also like the idea of those silica gel packets. Might have to pick up a couple.

I too thought about putting my trunk kit in a duffel bag, but decided against it for now. The box fits just right in the corner of the trunk and still allows me to carry my work gear. I think a backpack would be even better still -- I may roll up a small one and stash it in the trunk.

Then if it really hit the fan I could walk with my survival goodies.

Sounds like a plan.

That is an impressive kit case. Why don't you use Pelican case? Is it ok to store MRE meals in case too?

I didn't use a Pelican case because of the cost; something in this size would be over $40 at least. The orange MTM waterproof box was about $12.

There's no reason MREs couldn't be stored in something like this, but if you're planning on it sitting in your trunk through multiple freeze/thaw cycles and the summer heat -- well, let's just say I wouldn't eat it.

Try Underwater Kinetics, or the Storm Cases at Galls. I don't know if they have the sheer, raw strength and the boyancy of the Pelicans and Otters, and I know they don't have the Peli's bells and whistles, but still water tight.

Might be worth a shot.

If all you want is water tightness and don't mind the weight, scrounge the surplus sites for 50cal ammo cans.
