YOUR STORAGE PROBLEMS SOLVED
FRUSTRATED BY HEAVY CUMBERSOME STORAGE BOXES?
If you have used the big heavy types of boxes, then you might already know they are a great strong product but that they have some disadvantages too. One of them is their baulk and weight. These types of storage cases are what is called a roto-moulded product. And for those of us becoming more aware of the amount of weight we carry in our vehicles, understand that it all counts towards our overall vehicle and trailer weight calculations. And beyond that they can be a pain to lift up into ute trays and onto roof racks.
To solve this, we designed the Expedition Box. And, we opted to use the Injection Moulding process, which would allow us to build in the features we wanted. Yes, injection moulds are much higher tech and thus far more expensive with all the precision moving parts and hydraulics, but we believe the end product is well worth it. Importantly injection moulding allowed us to be precisely in creating a robust tough box without the unnecessary weight.
PURCHASED CHEAP INFERIOR AND WEAK BOXES IN THE PAST?
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
We had tried many boxes in the past and were often frustrated by the ability of them to be belted around in the back of the truck while on a remote trip. There is nothing worse than being remote or away camping and gear has been damaged, or the weather and dust has made it onto your clothes. It’s frustrating and painful to find a fix when away. It’s the last thing you want to worried about.
Our precision injected moulded expedition boxes are made to last and last trip after trip. We back our product with a 100% money back guarantee – because if you are unhappy so are we! We also provide a 2 year warranty on our expedition boxes for added piece of mind!
DUST AND WEATHER LEAKS
Dust and driving rain have a tendency to find their way into gear no matter how well it is packed, often spoiling or dirtying clothes and delicate electronics.
The Expedition134 boxes have been fitted with one of our key features – a custom weather seal and a matching high ridge to keep out driving rain and prevent dust leaking in. Relax in confidence that your gear will be well protected in an Expedition134 storage box.
UNEVEN FLOORS FOR STACKING GEAR
Heavy rotomoulded boxes are designed with multiple ridges and channels both across the floor and sides of the box to provide their strength. Unfortunately, this trait also makes packing them a real pain compared to a nice flat smooth floor. Food tins, jars, and bottles all will fall over no matter how tightly you pack them, often leaving you with a mess to clean up later.
The Expedition134 box was engineered and designed to have nice smooth flat floors and rounded corners to address this problem. This makes stacking and packing a super simple affair and helps keep your gear all nicely ordered.
DIFFICULT TO ACCESS CONTENTS WHEN IT’S ALL TIED DOWN
Traveling this great country of ours for any length of time nearly always means having to store some of your valuables on the roof rack of the vehicle. And with normal boxes, that always ends up with ropes or straps over the top of everything and then when you need that one item you have to undo it all.
Well, forget all of that hassle and use a box with dedicated tie-down points on the corners that allow easy opening of the box while it is still secured on the roof! No more being covered in dust and grime from pulling ropes and straps off and then having to re-tie them again. It doesn’t get any better than that.
BOTHERED BY RUST AND RATTLES OF BOXES?
It’s beyond annoying when on a long trip to a destination you hear continual tinny rattles that metal makes from those corrugations!
If you have used those big heavy roto-moulded boxes in the past you will know most of them have metal components. And if you have used them in the professional or commercial marine environment, then you’d also know that the hinges and latches rust out pretty quickly too, which is why they aren’t found much in that industry.
We solved this problem through our superior technical precision of injection moulding. This allowed us to remove all metal from our expedition products. If your using them at sea or at the beach then no need to worry about metal rusting. Importantly our boxes won’t create pain in the arse rattles in your vehicle!
WASTED SPACE WHEN NOT IN USE
A frustration of some roto-moulded storage boxes is the amount of room they take up when not in use. Roto-moulding is what allows these types of boxes to have the vertical or square walls and corners that we at Open Sky Touring used to think were necessary for ease of packing. A problem created with the vertical or square walls and corners is that these storage boxes can-not be nested when empty thus taking up valuable space in the shed or garage.
The expedition box design allows the lid to be removed and the box body to be nested inside another box body saving over 50% of the space.
Leaving your gear on the roof rack or in the back of a ute is great, but when you walk into the pub for a coldie after a long day, it would be good to know the gear inside your storage box is safe.
The Expedition Box allows for each latch to be locked. Importantly we have designed the padlock position to be under the outer rim which means the padlock won’t rub on other gear inside your vehicle or rattle on other metal.
LIDS POOLING WATER AT THE CAMPSITE!
Rain at the camp is not ideal but we all know it happens. It’s more of a frustration when the lid of your box fills with water. Usually meaning you get wet when removing the lid or your contents inside do.
We designed the lids so the water runs off and that puddle of water you forgot about from the overnight rain won’t end up on your lap in the morning.
HARD TO CLEAN
Nothing worse than a frustrating session cleaning up at the end of a long camping trip right? When you’ve been smashed all over the Cape, or just wanting to relax after finishing a long drive, you just don’t want to fight to get rid of all the dust and mud throughout your gear. One of the biggest problems with the heavy rotomoulded boxes is that annoying inside lip that keeps the dirt and muck in, no matter how much you try to hose it out.
Well, that pain is a thing of the past with the Expedition134 boxes due to the clever design incorporating that clean smooth flat floor and sidewalls with no annoying overhanging lip to trap the dirt and mud. Simply give them a hose out, wipe them down and you’re done with the cleanup.
Love our boxes ,damp in Karumba and our goodies are dry and safe
Very tough boxes
Have had a couple of trips away with them now and are great for my hunting and camping trips.
They are up there in price but definitely worth the money you get what you pay for and will be adding to the collection soon. 👍
Outstanding delivery. Boxes are solid and exactly what we need. Highly recommend.
Spot on and fit for purpose. Was thinking about draw system for rear of tub but after coming across this Aussie product decided this will suit my storage solutions much more conveniently. Will be adding more of these in the future without doubt 👍.
Awesome box’s tough as and very well built
These things are air tight, dust proof and don’t leak water. I use them whenever I get away for a road trip.
Great colour, nice look and function. Tough and good seal. Worth the expensive cost if you can afford it. Good product.
Another sensational transaction from the team at Expedition134. These EZY Anchor pegs are exactly what we have been missing on our adventures. They come in handy bags and fit it perfect in our Expedition134 boxes with our other camping supplies. Cheers lads
One of the best purchases I have made this year. Excellent quality, practical and so handy to have in the pack of the ute. I love the fact it is made in Australia. I have been looking for Australian-made products of this type and quality for years and now I have found Expedition 134.
Can't wait to try out our new boxes on our trip around Australia. Delivery was terrific.
This is my second Expedition 134 box and if there is a better one on the market I am yet to find it. Strong, durable, waterproof, basically I haven't found one fault. I particularly like that I can access the contents while the box is still tied down to the roof rack. Best of all, its Australian made! Outstanding Aussie product!
Like mine,but didnt get the straps.
Great quality fairly strong but light weight, heaps of useable internal space
Great product ,strong and sturdy no problems with order or delivery. Highly recommend this product
3rd box I've purchased awesome boxs strong and although I had an issue with 1 lid it was replaced quickly. great team.
