Why Choose the Expedition134 Plastic Storage Box

The Expedition134 plastic storage box is an Aussie-made, heavy duty storage box 100% designed and developed for the rugged Australian environment by a 100% Australian-owned company. The innovative design behind the Expedition134 is based on years of experience in the mining and extractives industry and dealing with mining equipment. It includes features missing from other storage systems, creating an affordable, durable and convenient storage solution for mining.

The tough-as-nails 55-litre storage box has been injection moulded, enhancing its overall strength and durability whilst reducing weight. Although the storage box weighs just 3.95 kilograms, the lid is rated to handle up to 120-kilogram loads.

The Expedition134 plastic storage box comes with reinforced external tie-down points on the corners, so you can secure it in the back of a ute and still open the lid without having to undo and redo ratchet straps. 

The storage box’s flat internal floor makes it ideal for packing and easy to clean. These boxes are also designed to be stacked on top of each other, with the base of one box locking into place with the lid of another.

Unlike other storage boxes, the Expedition134 is a heavy duty plastic storage box with no metal parts that will rust or corrode in harsh environments. The custom seal design also keeps your mining equipment and tools dry and free from insects, dust and the elements.

The Expedition134 storage box also comes in four different colours, allowing you to colour-code your mining equipment and identify which box you require at a glance. The Expedition134 offers excellent value for money for those seeking a tough, durable and well-designed storage box for work in extreme environments like Australia’s mining industry.

Open Sky Touring was established in 2015 by Ben Kincade and Nic McKenzie, from a breakdown in the Simpson Desert. From this, an idea spawned, and we developed the Expedition134 brand of products and have some more ideas in the pipeline. As we push to grow our range we remain just as keen on touring and being out there ourselves.

As proud Aussies we also 100% make our gear in Australia and go out of our way to support other small Aussie businesses as well. Our Expedition134 storage boxes are made in Brisbane, and our unique, quick-release straps are custom made in the small rural Queensland town of Mareeba. Accompanying our own products are what we consider is other quality made gear that we have used and proven ourselves, and as we find more items that we love, this range may expand even further.
