Wow those cases are pricey but nice. What is difference between the silver and black?I keep most of my dry food, canned goods, unopened jars in a couple of Zarges cases. How it's packed changes and evolves depending on adventure, where I'm going, and how extended, and usually includes other kitchen stuff like foil, trash bags, containers for leftovers, etc. The Zarges cases are certified bear-resistant, which is pretty handy in places where you might get fined for leaving food out. Park Rangers have come into my camps and nodded at them and said "Good."

Love how they have the same foot print, that makes things easier. Good find though!.
The silver cases are the Zarges, the original expedition style cases. I chose two of the bear-resistant K470 sizes that have the same foot print, so stack very nicely and fit well into my packing scheme in both trailer and van. I have one deep one (#40678) and two shallower (#40810), and they've been worth every penny. You can strap them up top, leave them exposed to weather, stand on them, throw 'em in a lake (they serve as flotation in some vids I've seen) and are two of the three Zarges K470 sizes that are certified by the IGBC as Grizzly Bear Resistant.
The black cases are Front Runner Wolf Packs. Actually South African ammo cases private-labeled and sold by FRO and others for expedition travel. VERY handy and stout, and though plastic, very durable. I also have the Front Runner Cub Packs (image below), which are a bit smaller, though equally handy and durable. Both sizes stack really well, are super handy for all sorts of gear, and save space over a lot of other containers because they are straight-sided. They too can be packed up top and work really well with FRO Stratchits for securing.

Four FRO Cub Packs and two FRO soft-sided Flat Packs on end in the nose box of the trailer.
A lot of my gear was chosen so it will survive me, so that my kid and her kid would hopefully use it in years to come and remember the adventures we took together and used it, from deserts to mountains to bayous or ocean shores. They get more beautiful with age; those Zarges cases especially; stickers, scratches, etc.
I like these Husky Professional Duty storage containers, too. Many sizes to choose from.Husky makes red weatherproof storage tubs in various sizes. They have a nice seal around the lid and are great, keep moisture and dust out for a reasonable price. Check the out at Home Depot
