Default Improvised weather-resistant, hard-shell, wheeled case

Going through some stuff in the attic the other day and came across an old tool chest I haven't used in years. At first I was going to donate it to Goodwill, but started thinking... hmmmmmmmmmm two trays, LOTS of room, wheels, pull-out handle. BINGO! Gadget and lens case!! It holds everything I have except my light stands and tripods. I had an old Bower backpack I set in the bottom as the insert for the lenses.

Nice. I bought one of those about two years ago that I keep my studio lights and modifiers in. I think I paid $50 for it at Lowes. You just can't beat it.

I got mine about 8 years ago (more or less), used it for a year, then stuck it in the attic. I think I paid a lot less than $50, though. Still, $50 is relatively cheap when you consider what a Pelican of this size would cost.

I have one very much like this and it helps me keep my gear in one place.

I like that. I just so happen to have something similar at home too. Thanks for the idea!
