Alu-Box Group Buy ends 9/15/14

A042: Volume: 42 Liter, Size: 58cm (L) x 38cm (W) x 24cm (H),Weight: 4.7kg
A073: Volume: 73 Liter, Size: 58cm (L) x 38cm (W) x 40cm (H), Weight: 5.5kg
A081: Volume: 81 Liters, Size: 78cm (L) x 38cm (W) x 33cm (H), Weight: 6.2kg

Features:
• Spring loaded insulated handles.
• A rubber gasket outlines the rim opening to make them IP54 rated (dust and water resistant).
• Heavy Duty Cast aluminum corners for protection and stacking.
• All internal seams on these cases are sealed with silicone.
• Lock options available.

Aluminum cases are superior because:
• They are much lighter than steel and Pelican cases. They weigh 1/3 the weight of steel and has a very high structural rigidity.
• They are not only of superior strength but look & feel rugged and wears really nicely. The longer in use, the more they develop a nice patina.
• Aluminum provides a very high size to volume ratio. Maximum protection with the least wall thickness.
• Aluminum is immune to temperature. No changes in material characteristics.
• Aluminum is immune to water vapor and will not rust.

Can the 42L model be used as a pannier? The shape seems to be wrong:

You could, but I would not…

Lid should be on the short side to make a functional pannier.

These are more applicable for gear storage and transport on a support vehicle - Rally box.

The large makes a great coffee table in the man-cave

Not sure I understand this logic as this is a group buy… Not spamming and I have been on ADV for years - though not as active in the last year.

The group buy was sponsored on another forum and reached the minimum required threshold to make the buy. There is empty space on the pallets for the quantities listed of the two case sizes available. I wanted to offer the group pricing to the ADV forum as I have in years past gotten much in the way of information and support from the folk here. Happy to have it moved wherever is best categorized and helps the most people interested in the opportunity.

After lugging around pelican boxes at 35lbs empty - these are looking to be much better for gear transport.
