Portable, durable and water-tight marine trunk gets put to the test

Plano's new line of high-impact plastic Marine Trunks have a durable reinforced lid. They are secured with heavy-duty latches to protect your gear and can be easily taken anywhere on land or water. I personally like to use mine on my kayak that way I have even more dry storage.

The Marine Trunk is available in three sizes:

  • Large: 37.75"L X 18.25"W X 14"H
  • Medium: 30"L X 12.75"W X 14.25"H
  • Small: 24"L X 13"W X 15"H

Each Marine Trunk is stackable and will not slide around on you.

The rubber O-ring seal keeps your items dry, and I put it to the test. I took a garden hose and sprayed mine all over and at different angles. No water got inside of the small-sized trunk, allowing me to feel much more secure about my items staying dry.

One of the nice features are the padlock tabs for added security. Personally, I would run a cable through it because I believe this will only keep honest people honest.

I also tested the trunk's weight capacity by sitting on it. I'm a big guy and was able to sit on top of the trunk with no sag or it collapsing.

The truck has very impressive heavy duty latches paired with tie down brackets on each side too. It's nice for those times you want to throw it on an ATV, fly across the water or secure to a trailer for transport.
