About this deal

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.

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. The bear stole the bin from outside my chicken coop, dropped it on the latched side until it popped open, and made off with some chicken food. Nothing we tested, including the smaller and larger ActionPacker sizes, beat the 24-gallon size for its combination of durability, security, and portability.Flaws but not dealbreakers: The iWill doesn’t have a slot for a label and because the container is opaque identifying what’s inside is difficult. One reviewer uses them to stow Legos, and we saw several mentions of people keeping craft supplies in the boxes. The grooves in the reinforced lids means these 19 quart stackable totes with lids can be placed on top of each other to save space, stack two of the 6.

They fit neatly on my closet shelves, but they’re not firm enough to stack if I fill them with anything bulky or heavy. Long-term test notes: We still think these are the best easy-access bins, and although they don’t seal as tightly as our other picks, I was surprised to see how dry, dust-free, and pest-free our test Akro-Mils bin stayed after a year in my storage room.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. Long-term test notes: Over the past three years, I’ve used the Iris test samples for everything from storing my daughter’s artwork in a closet to housing baby chicks ( with a hacked lid to let air flow) until they’re old enough for our family’s chicken coop. Long-term test notes: In three years of long-term testing, we haven’t had any problems with the plastic degrading, although we have seen at least one reader comment noting that this happened to their bin.

Some popular bins were hard to find, so we focused on containers sold by multiple retailers or sellers with reliable inventory. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. I have experience maintaining entire school libraries, keeping hundreds of yards of fabric organized, and storing and cataloguing the onslaught of sheets and blankets I’ve tested for Wirecutter. The clear material allows for easy viewing of contents while the durable plastic construction keeps contents protected from moisture and other damage. We filled clothing boxes with sweaters and hoodies, noting how much the boxes held and how easy they were to pack and empty.quart boxes securely on top of the 19 quart Iris tote, or stack two 19 quart totes on top of the 41, 62, 74, or 103 quart totes to create a customized storage solution. Black Base and Lid - Black plastic provides extra strength for storage of heavier items compared to Clear alternative. We looked for bins with closures that were easy to use and worked consistently, as well as bins that were widely available. We saw several commenters saying they’ve used the ActionPacker for years and that it’s held up through all types of weather. 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.
