About this deal

Holds a lot: We considered bins that would neatly and securely hold a variety of items and stack without wobbling. The bins have stayed watertight when I’ve left some outside in the rain for weeks here in the Pacific Northwest, and even after they’ve lost a latch or two (which happens a lot), the seal still keeps moisture out. We took particular note that commenters—ranging from a personal historian stowing photos and personal documents to small-apartment dwellers—rave about the watertight seal and neat stackability. They were also the tightest-sealing clear bins we tested, thanks to a foam gasket in the lid and extra latches around the edges (most bins have only two on each end).

Flaws but not dealbreakers: Like other polypropylene bins, they’ll become brittle in cold temperatures; we don’t recommend them for storage in a freezing garage or basement. In testing the wheels did pop off of this bin—we think that’s due to the sheer weight and size of something this big taking a tumble down a flight of stairs—but we easily reattached them.To find the best, we tossed 32 bins and totes down a flight of stairs, left them in the rain, and stuffed them full of books and blankets.

Unlike the super-durable Brute totes, the HDX bins are made with polypropylene, so they’re not as tough in extreme cold temperatures and they break more easily when dropped. If you do plan on packing one of these full to the brim, be mindful of weight (we’d recommend things like clothes and decorations over documents and dry goods). Long-term test notes: I’ve used the test samples for three years, and they do a solid job of keeping everything inside clean. We also like the iWill for items like scarves and belts—accessories you don’t use every day but still want ready access to.

For this guide I spoke to professional organizer Beth Penn, owner of Bneato Bar and author of The Little Book of Tidying: Decluttering Your Home and Your Life. The latch still works perfectly, and if I had padlocked the bin (the lock was purchased but sitting in the house forgotten), I’m pretty confident the bear would have failed in its quest for food.

Though the container would probably need to be replaced after a major fall, your stuff would stay inside. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. The Brute’s molded handles also made them more comfortable to carry than the less expensive garage bins we recommend, the Home Depot HDX. We looked for bins with closures that were easy to use and worked consistently, as well as bins that were widely available. Not every bin needs to withstand heavy abuse, so we also considered some that were less durable but highly practical for storage.A durable protective storage solution, the transparency of these boxes also makes organisation easy as contents are always visible. Our plastic picks are made with polypropylene (labeled PP, the most common plastic we found) or high-density polyethylene (HDPE, for heavy-duty containers).

After we threw it down the stairs, a few corners were a bit dented but the latches held and the lid stayed tightly closed.
