Quick question - Tote for Armor

Post by Toweun » Wed Mar 19, 2014 10:28 pm

I am looking to get a tote big enough to store and transport my sandtrooper gear. I looked at a few and have a theory on how to get my gear in one. But what size, i looked at a few tonight, they seemed to small or just to big. So what size totes do you use?

Most of us use these... it may be a bit large, but having extra room is better than cramming.

Also, most Sandtroopers put their backpack on top of their tote when they roll it around (held in place by bungees or cargo straps) and just the rest of the costume is inside the tote.

The Stanley tote for sure. Then you always have room for a second costume inside!

I use the Stanley tote for Vader, but for my TK I use a larger rubbermade/sterilite with wheels. The stanley weighs more than the whole TK setup does.

Exactly why I never have used a Stanley tote for any white armor costumes.
