    milk crate would be too small...i have my stuff plus my fiance's....so it looks like a clear bin would be good...was hoping for some typre of container that had different sections....i'll go out tomorrow and see what i can find....

    i did find some nice storage for suv's...they were drawers that lay flat but the tops pull up as well...super $$$$ though

    chinkerjuarez - my mountain bike gear smells way better than my hockey equipment...lol

    picked up a 52.4qt/49.6L rubbermaid cleverlatch clear plastic bin today...i think it'll do..currently holding shin/knee pads, elbow/forearm pads, 2 helmets, 2 sets of gloves, camelback charm, dakine nomad, shoes, and may add my ff helmet in as well (with some rearranging)

    Yeah, one of those except the kind you can't see though. Nobody is tempted to steal what they can't see.

    I bought this bag at Performance, although I didn't see it online when I just checked. Shoes, helmet, gloves, glasses, radios, spare parts, spare clothing, extra food, it all fits. Seat and post are in shoe slots. I don't carry pads, but they would fit if I got rid of other stuff. I don't like anyone else to carry my gear bag because I don't want them to get hurt, and I am embarrassed at by much it weighs.

    Cardboard box

    I use a cardboard box. I wouldn't put any that has sweated on in a closed container or bag because it's will get ranked.

    Some bros here use a duffle like bag that looks like it made out of big fish nets. I think they got them at diving or fishing stores. Minimizes stuff getting ranked.

    yeah i thought about things getting stinky and thought i would just air it out before i put it in (like i do with my hockey equipment)...then i also thought i could drill a few holes for vents

    this isn't a pic of my truck but it explains the privacy cover....i would put the bin in the trunk space of my suv and pull the privacy cover over the bx which would hide it from any passers by

    Something else that might help

    I had a bugeye WRX and had a problem with driving it like crazy all over the place. I would occasionally hear all of my bike crap slide from one side of the car to the other and slam into the inside of the trunk.

    I purchased some rubbermaid tubs and put velcro on the bottom to keep them in place. Worked like I charm though it did occasionally buckle the carpet.

    Here in the islands the dominant sport is surfing. Some times you see bikinis tied to the car antenna to dry out.
