About this deal

The ActionPacker’s deep, rounded handles make it easier on the hands than the Brute, Roughneck, and HDX bins we tested, and the 24-gallon size is much easier to haul around than its big sibling, the 35-gallon ActionPacker.

Nothing we tested, including the smaller and larger ActionPacker sizes, beat the 24-gallon size for its combination of durability, security, and portability. 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. If you still prefer writing on the bins, we suggest dry-erase markers instead of Sharpies, particularly on clear storage containers. Why it’s great: Take the Rubbermaid 24 Gallon ActionPacker camping or throw it in the back of your truck—it’s the best storage container we found for outdoor use.We’ve dropped them and tossed them down flights of stairs (which, we’ve found, is relaxing and pretty good for stress relief).

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). 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. Why it’s great: If you want bins for your garage, attic, or basement that can take a lot of abuse, we recommend the Rubbermaid Brute Totes. It’s made of a polypropylene and HDPE blend, so it’s stronger than the clear polypropylene Iris Weathertight Totes. 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.

If you live in a temperate climate you can probably get away with using these in a garage or unheated part of the house. 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.

Not every bin needs to withstand heavy abuse, so we also considered some that were less durable but highly practical for storage. Improved hotmelt seal provides a hermetic closure that is ideal for storing keepsakes, important documents or anything with sentimental value.Black Base and Lid - Black plastic provides extra strength for storage of heavier items compared to Clear alternative.
