Nothing we tested, including the smaller and larger ActionPacker sizes, beat the 24-gallon size for its combination of durability, security, and portability. In testing we consolidated three bins of holiday decorations into the Sterilite and wheeled it into storage—quick and easy. Like most bins we tried, the Brutes didn’t let water in, although in our tests, the deeply grooved lid collected a lot of water, which can attract bugs and bacteria. It’s perfect for garments that need airflow, like wool sweaters (just keep in mind that they aren’t moth-proof).

Our picks include clear plastic storage bins for indoor closets, a heavy-duty garage tote, cheap bins for big projects, an extra-large wheeled bin, an indestructible container that’s great for camping, an easy-access box, and zippered cloth boxes for clothes. Holds a lot: We considered bins that would neatly and securely hold a variety of items and stack without wobbling. One note: I noticed that while the bin was in storage over the 2020 holiday season, with only empty ornament boxes inside, a critter got in and chewed up a small box. Over the years we’ve simulated flooding and water leaks by hosing the bins down, submerging them in a kiddie pool, and leaving them out in the rain overnight. In the quest to tidy, storage containers can make the difference between an organized home and one heaped with mismatched boxes in the closets and garage.

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. quart, 19 quart, 30 quart, 41 quart, 46 quart, 62 quart, 74 quart, and 103 quart WEATHERTIGHT heavy-duty storage totes. If you still prefer writing on the bins, we suggest dry-erase markers instead of Sharpies, particularly on clear storage containers. 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.

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.Black Base and Lid - Black plastic provides extra strength for storage of heavier items compared to Clear alternative.

It’s the only bin we’ve found with wheels and a big, comfortable handle that folds down when it’s not in use. We tried to attach a few sticky labels but they fell off immediately, so we think a marker or a good memory is the best way to keep track of what’s inside.The Iris Weathertight Totes we recommend will also work in your clothes closet and they’re clear, so you can see what’s inside, but we prefer the iWill’s zippered closure to the Iris’s heavy latches, which can feel like overkill when you just want to grab something. I have already put some food items in it and put it in the concrete outdoor shed we have to make sure that it can keep food dry. Neither material should be affected by the hottest outdoor temperatures—weaker PP doesn’t break down until about 176 degrees Fahrenheit. 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. The Brute’s molded handles also made them more comfortable to carry than the less expensive garage bins we recommend, the Home Depot HDX.

Long-term test notes: I’ve used these bins to pack away all of our family’s holiday decorations for four seasons now, and the wheels, handles, and latches have held up to an increasingly large amount of stuff packed inside, in addition to surviving being dragged up and down a hill and across our gravel drive (our storage room is outside). Both PP (PDF) and HDPE (PDF) will degrade eventually from exposure to oxygen and UV from sunshine—which can cause discoloration—but the bigger concern is cold. 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. Flaws but not dealbreakers: The Brute’s lid was tricky to open when the bin is empty but it was much easier once the bin was full of heavy books. 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.We’ve dropped them and tossed them down flights of stairs (which, we’ve found, is relaxing and pretty good for stress relief). It’s usually sold in a two-pack (Sterilite told us that it sells the bins to retailers in pairs), which may be more storage than many people need. Polypropylene can become brittle at just below freezing, which is why we don’t recommend PP bins for storage in an unheated basement or garage.
