Office Depot� Brand Plastic Air-Tight Storage Trunk, 21.8 Gallons, Gray
I purchased this for transporting my hunting clothes for a bear hunt. I like the idea that it had an air tight seal to keep foreign smells off my clothes. The construction is good and it seals good, but it absolutely WREAKS!!! I tried everything I could think of to remove the smell, I soaked it in baking soda and water, I made a baking soda paste and covered every inch of it and let it sit, and I tried just leaving it out in the sun for a few days, nothing would remove the nasty "plastic" smell. This product would easily get a 5 star rating from me if it didn't stink so terribly. If you want to keep your clothes scent free, do not use this product.

This thing SMELLS!!!!
The quality of the tote is great and I love the fact that is will seal air tight. The problem is trying to get the smell out of it!! It absolutely wreaks like plastic and no matter what I tried I could not get rid of it. I tried a baking soda paste, baking soda and water soak, leaving it in the sun, nothing would take the smell out of it. As a hunter, this is unacceptable when I'm trying to keep my clothes scent free. This tote would easily get 5 stars if not for the terrible smell.

Good quality but not what is represented
If you look at the left-most photo of this trunk on the description page this trunk has storage in the top. This trunk, item number 453697, does NOT have storage in the top. The trunk that is represented is item number 453733, which is a 25.5 gallon non-airtight trunk. With this being said the quality of the item I received seems quite good with a fully gasketed lid and fairly stout closures. It seems the ideal trunk for storing my hunting clothing and am considering purchasing another. The most refreshing part is that it's made in the good old USA!
