Australia’s Best Overland Storage Box
The Expedition134 is an Australian-made overland storage box 100% designed and developed for rugged and harsh outdoor environments by a 100% Australian-owned company. Overlanding is about exploration, not conquering obstacles. With the Expedition134, we’ve conquered the obstacles caused by so many other storage boxes, so we can all focus solely on the journey and those far-off destinations.
Unlike storage boxes made of other materials, the tough, injection moulded Expedition134 does not stick to your fingers in the freezing weather, nor burn you after being left in the hot sun. The innovative and engineered design enhances overall strength and durability whilst reducing weight. So although the overland storage box weighs just 3.95 kilograms, the lid is rated to handle up to 120-kilogram loads and can easily double as a convenient step. The box also holds up to 55 litres of gear.
The Expedition134 is a heavy duty storage box with no metal parts that will rust or corrode in harsh environments. The custom seal design also keeps your overlanding equipment and food stores dry and free from insects, animals, dust and the elements.
Overlanding takes a lot of self-reliance and we know you don’t need to be worrying about your equipment. No journey is too harsh or extreme for the Expedition134. It will travel with you to the most remote corners of the world. More importantly, it provides reliable storage in any environment, whether it’s rugged backcountry, salt-sprayed beaches or sandy desert.
This tough and durable overland storage box won’t crack, leak or wear away quickly. The Expedition134 will be the same storage box from the beginning of your adventure, until the end. It will have just seen a few more incredible places. We back our product with a 30-day money back guarantee and a 2-year warranty.

INTRODUCING OPEN SKY TOURING
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.Learn More

OPEN SKY TOURING REVIEWS
Great quality, love the tie downs and their anchor points, box fits on my spare fridge slide perfectly and I can use as a pantry box
Recently tried out these Expedition134 storage boxes. They are rippers! Aussie Made and Owned! They are great for boat, the 4wd, or around camp.
So easy to clean. You can lock them. You can open them without having to undo tie downs. And seal up great to protect you gear! Can’t say enough about them. Thanks Open Sky Touring for designing these great Aussie boxes!
Once again my delivery from Open Sky Touring arrived without a problem and I knocked the boxes together easily. I love these boxes and when finances allow will purchase another three. These are simply the best boxes on the market.
Strong, versatile and easy to store in camper trailer
After a lot of searching I finally found the best Australian made and owned offroad storage solution. These containers are exactly as described. The back up service it's awesome as well, I would give 6 stars for both product and service, well done Open Sky Touring
very well made have that quality feel do not feel flimsy
have already recommended to other people
I had a small problem with the lid of my box. Open sky were great to deal with. I sent an email on a Sunday and got a reply the same day! The replacement lid arrived on Wednesday. What great service 🙂
These are a really well thought out design. Love they have put in external anchor points to tie down the boxes. Great for our roof rack as we can gain easy access to our gear. They are tough and light weight. Well done on a fantastic Australian Made product!
Very happy with the boxes.
I have to say, the crew at Open Sky's are top shelf in the customer service department.
The boxes are strong enough for me to stand on and im 123kgs. They are smouth on the inside so cleaning is a breeze and inside space Economy is fantastic. You just dont getany of that leaf and dirt stuck in the inside corners like dune and other boxes. The colors are fun and make it easy to devide and concor during your midnight serch for the batterys. They strap down tight and best of all for me is they are water tight. Just cant say enough. Simple , rugged and useful addition to the rig.
I ordered 3 boxes and let the boys know the urgency as I was heading off to kimberly’s. I was over the moon when they arrived a day before the eta. Great product, brilliant customer service which is rare these days. Very happy with boxes, they look strong and for my needs, the perfect size. Well done fellas and thanks heaps.
Great product & service!
Bought 3 boxes which are fantastic.
The service from the outset was unbelievable especially in this day and age of online shopping! Nic and his teams attitude towards customer service is to second to none. Support Small Business!
I’ve been following the build progress on these since the beginning and bought them as soon as they went on sale for our work vans and my camping and traveling plans. What really got my attention was the custom dust and rain seal and the external tie-down points.
We’ve put these in all our technicians vans and our work maintenance crew boss reckons he aint seen anything like them, even in his Canadian snow plowing days.
I also really like the flat floor in them and the smooth walls for easy cleaning. This is what I hate the most about the big heavy boxes.
Although I can easily swap them from the back of the Patrol up onto the roof, I use two in the back beside the fridge and one on the roof for the gear that I use less often. The external tie down points are great and mean I can open the box without having to undo the ratchet straps. Fantastic feature. Great that they are lockable as well. A very smart combination. These boxes are really well made and far more solid than I anticipated. Highly recommend them.
First rate service on a first rate product
I took my new Expedition 134 box out for a run the first weekend after delivery.
The tie down points were great and made securing it to the roof rack quick and easy. And then, access to the box while tied down was so easy.
The box is a great size for a roof rack too. Big enough to put plenty of stuff inside without raising the overall height much at all.
I will be getting myself another one when they come out in different colours.
Thanks guys. Awesome result for all the work you have put in.
First of all, I’d like to say congratulations on producing a top-quality Aussie product. I’d have to say the quality and finish of the container is very, very, good! I love the smooth internal finish, the look/feel of the container, the size, the tie down points and general construction of the container.
I look forward to testing it against water and dust ingestion by running it on the back of my Can-Am Maverick SxS buggy, which is what I principally purchased it for – all other containers used so far have let in stacks of dust! I am quietly confident yours won’t!
On a side note, used to own and run a 4×4 Accessory Shop so consider myself to have a LOT of experience with 4×4 products, the good, the bad, the ugly and the plain ‘how can you sell such rubbish’! I am a passionate 4×4 enthusiast, have toured Australia extensively (using products that range from great to absolute rubbish) and love everything 4×4 related, especially good quality products that make touring easier and more practical. Again, congratulations and well done on a well thought-out, conceived and tested product.
One grey box received and put to good use last weekend. It bounced around in the back of the ute over rough roads, creek crossings and steep hills. I ended up with the usual tray full of dust, but the box remained 100% dust proof. What a brilliant box!
I am heading away at Christmas and I want to retire my other two ‘Bunnings boxes’ so I have just ordered another two from you.
You have a great product – well done.
Thanks for the super-fast delivery of the boxes! I’ve loaded them up for a quick weekender. I’m very impressed with them! Haven’t had a chance to fully figure out how to utilise them best, but so far, so good.
Besides Barrington being 90% gated off to anyone, the trip went well. It hailed and stormed for about 30 mins which was interesting. I used the boxes as a step to get into my roof top tent, it’s awesome you can stand on them. Also, when I came back down to sea level, the seals were so good that they had almost sucked the lid in. Maybe need to put an equaliser valve in them…
I love them though. I’ve been searching for a smaller box than my Trimcast ones for ages and this ticks the boxes. I’ll be buying more for sure. Have you thought about making yellow ones?
very happy with product and prompt delivery.
I bought 3 of these for the rear of my canopy, to store recovery gear, emergency overnight gear and tools. They are tough and strong, I did the stand on it check and they were faultless! Perfect for reaching to on top of my canopy. I love that you can mix and match the colours (which I did). The grooving on top also helps align the tie down strap. The seals and closing latches are firm, I can’t see how dust or water would get in.
Brilliant product, highly recommended!
Love that they are Australian made!!
Super impressed with the quality of the boxes. Really like the way the tops and bottoms interlock for stacking. Looking forward to not having to clean the red dirt and dust out of everything the next time we go off road. Customer support has been outstanding as well. We’ll be buying more!!!
I recently purchased 2 of 55l expedition 134 boxes and well needless to say they are quite possibly the best crates/boxes on the market today. The seals on them are ridiculously strong. I tested them in a creek with all my clothes in one and submerged the box fully underwater, floated downstream and even tried to stand on it underwater only to open the lid back on land and everything was still bone dry. Not a drop made it in. Other amazing points are the fact it is 100% ozzie made and owned which makes me happy that i can support an australian business, they have a great range of colours to colour code all my stuff and the fact you can strap them down and still open the lid. These lads have really thought of everything and i now cant justify buying any other product alike due to how well these are made.
Oh and the customer service was on point as well. A higher star rating would be put if it went higher than 5.
Storage boxes are as described and very strong. Able to be sealed from water and dust. Very happy with this purchase.
Great storage for my camping equipment. The latches are super tight so I think they will be completely waterproof
Love the boxes... great product. You guys should be proud of your exceptional customer service... great support and advice with follow ups. Don’t get that anywhere else these days. Thank you
These Australian made Storage boxes are awesome for camping. Great design and well thought out! Love them!
Couldn't be happier with the Expedition 134 boxes that I purchased. They are a credit to their designers and everyone involved. Would thourghly recommend getting some. Finally an Ant, Dust and Water proof storage solution for all my on roof items
They are that good we just keep buying them, now have 7. Makes camping and travelling a lot easier. Used for all purposes including water storage.
I've had a couple of these Expedition134 storage boxes for over a year now. They hold my camping gear, tie-downs, car cleaning products, photography gear, food, drinks, clothes and anything else that I can fit in them. I've traveled everywhere from the South Australian Coast up to central Queensland Coast inland and coastline on dusty roads, flooded roads and sandy beaches and the seal hasn't failed me yet. They store easily in the Ute with the interlocking lids, easy to colour coordinate between the interchangeable coloured boxes and lids, you can attach small ratchet straps to tie them down and padlocks in you need to.
For anyone considering purchasing new storage boxes, I highly recommend the Expedition134. Strong, weatherproof and affordable.
After many travels and more than a few camping tubs which didn’t last, we stumbled across these ripper camping boxes . I can not recommend highly enough. Super strong, easy to keep clean. We use every adventure and camping trip we go on. Strong enough to use as seats and steps into the Ute . We have a whole set of colours and brought more to set our young bloke up. Fantastic Australian company. Highly recommend you will not regret it.
I was set up with these cracking expedition boxes. I have the set of colors and also the mixed lids so I can differentiate what’s in them. Could not recommend these enough. Tough as nails, easy to clean and being able to stack them, they take up heaps less room on the Ute. All my mates want these boxes. Bloody choice!
We have been using these boxes for a while now and they are the best plastic storage tub I have ever used. Highly recommended them if you love the outdoors
These boxes are expensive. BUT, totally worth it. We were looking at buying a step ladder, another table, and trying to figure out how we store our clothes in a camper trailer for a year traveling around Australia. The solution to all these problems was a quad pack of Expedition 134 boxes. Camper trailer storage is tight, as anyone knows. With these boxes our clothes can stay outside and be dust and water free in any conditions. On top of that, they don't get in the way because we can use them for other purposes. And, if we want them off to the side, we can stack them up and put them anywhere knowing our gear is safe. When they're in the car we can stack them up and tie them down safely knowing the won't budge. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for the best possible storage solution for camping and caravanning.
Purchased 3 expedition boxes and we have used them a couple of times when out camping. They are at a very reasonable price, can fit our items easily (pantry items, cookware, general storage). I’ve used other storage boxes (pelican and rhino) and this by far exceeds any storage box - they are lighter, compact, easier to handle. Boxes sealed well and items were kept clean. Can highly recommend buying the boxes and also the straps that can be purchased with them.
I can 100% recommend these boxes. Pictures just don’t do it justice on how good the quality of these things are. Easy to stack,waterproof, can mix and match the colours, if you choose something other than this you are making a mistake! Just love the things.
Excellent cases! I've previously used military-spec spacecases obtained during my army days but these are equal to or better than the mil-spec. The material they are built from is thinner, but is obviously a better grade of plastic because it maintains its integrity exceedingly well. I bought four - one on orange to keep all my recovery gears, and three in black for clothes, toiletries, cooking gear and food. they stack perfectly and saved me needing to take camping chairs oput with me as they put up with my 110kg weight without any warping. Excellent after-sales service - my dog chewed two clips and they sent out replacements immediately! 10/10 do recommend for any function, whether camping or keeping your cyclone-tsunami-sharknado-coronavirus-zombieapocalypse food stores in, watertight and sturdily...
We bought an Expedition134 box for our 4wd’ing gear and absolutely love it. Sturdy, tough, and secure: we are confident using it for gear that normally would crack other plastic boxes, and it doesn’t twist or warp at all during use or storage. We will definitely be back for more!
Purchased 2 boxes and I highly recommend them. Easy to stack, tie down and clean and have used them on a couple of trips and have had no dust or water issues. Fantastic bit of gear.
We have 4 of your boxes. Been camping for 20+ years and gone through many storage ‘solutions’. These boxes are the ducks guts. Highly highly recommend!!!

I first saw the concept of this box may years ago, when I was working as Editor of Australia's biggest selling 4WD print mag - the boys sent me their 3D CAD drawings and outlined their features and benefits.
I was immediately excited by the idea and prayed that it came to fruition.
Fast-forward a few years and I was looking at my very first Expedition Box - wow, I was blown away.
They had met every single design target; lightweight, strong, UV resistant, dust and waterproof, lockable, stackable (and smaller stackable in storage with the lids off). Not only that, there are other awesome features like a smooth clean interior, unique corner tie-down points (for easy contents access without having to untie straps) and strap channels for traditional straps.
I am pumped by this box and its versatility. Nearly a year later and I am now the happy owner of two boxes (and recently four of their super-strong straps). I have put them through the normal bashing one would expect to give out bush on plenty of trips and apart from some minor scratching on the outside (lets call it bush-character!) they are still perfect. They have endured wind-driven rain and plenty of dust on my roof, never have I had a leak to the inside and my contents within.
Top job boys! Happy to recommend this wholeheartedly to anyone.
An Australian made quality product. Need I say any more. Have owned an Expedition 134 box for over a year now. Typically resides in my vehicle storing clutter however to date it has been utilised for multiple purposes - touring, camping, carrying goods across the farm. Never an issue with water or dust ingress. Only problem I have is that I need more of them!
We’ve just brought two of your boxes , we were originally going to buy an allubox, but after a bit of research and the fact that yours are Australian made , well that sealed the deal for us , we were very impressed with the quality and how quick it was , from ordering to receiving our order .
Definitely in our top 10 bits of camping gear
I have a set of these boxes and from what I can say is WOW! Absolutely brilliant!! The external tie down points are a great idea, everything can be tied down on the ute and still easily access the contents in the tubs with out having to untie every strap!
I use mine for cooking gear as the cast iron hot plate and cooker can bounce around in the box and I know that the box isn’t going to break on me like my previous cheap and nasty tubs! Highly recommend!
Need to start by commending open sky touring for finally providing a product we have been searching for.
For years of breaking plastic tubs, trying metal and having them rattle and drive me crazy or others that are overweight for their size. Finally have a strong box. Can use it as a seat, a step or a bench as the lid does not budge.
Zero water or dust gets in when it's on the roof or the trailer. External tie down points so you can still open the box without having to remove straps. It's lockable and durable. Well done. We have given this product hell and still in perfect condition besides scuff marks as you would expect but none look like ever rubbing through.
Looking forward to many years ahead of touring with these boxes.
The night before we tackled the border track
I gotta say I'm absolutely loving these @expedition134 storage boxes.
We were in a national park so we needed to bring our own firewood. I didn't want to drive 2 hours with wood strapped to the roof & I wanted to keep the weight as low as possible as my hilux is already too top heavy. So I loaded enough wood for 2 nights in these boxes and stacked them on my back seat without any mess in my car. They are incredibly durable so I had faith that even though they were fully loaded with wood they weren't going to break on my during the track. Highly recommend them
I began looking for a secure storage box to protect my camera gear from dust and water while traveling out west. That is when I found the expedition134 boxes. They were perfect for the job. Not only did they keep my camera gear clean and dry they also kept everything secure as they are lockable. I was so impressed with them that I also began using them as a tucker box, clothes box and general storage for tools etc. I tied one onto the top of the camper and even after several thousand kilometers of dusty corrugated outback roads the inside was as clean and dry as the day we left. If you are looking for a touring storage solution then look no further then the expedition134 box.
I bought 2 of your boxes recently, to use in our camper trailer.
For 11 years we have used (multiple ) plastic tubs bought from Big W or Bunnings. Multiple tubs because, of course, they don't last. Normal camping use has seen them crack, dust get in, even some mice in our food box once.
So I recently bought 2 of your boxes and we packed them, using 1 as a food box and the other as a kitchen/cooking gear box.
We have been on a 2 week trip to the Warrumbungle and Pilliga National Parks in Western New South Wales.
Not the roughest roads this trip, but all our camps were very dusty and the odd rodent or odd million flies.
In our boxes each time I found, food or kitchen stuff. That's it. No dust, insects or mice. How good is that! Plenty of dust on the outside of them.
The boxes also changed the way I packed the trailer. Much better! They fit in great.
We used them as seats at times, and as a footstool.
Great boxes. Very happy with them.
Absolutely one of the handiest storage items I have ever used.
Used to carry alot of the generic plastic tubs and they would break from being tied down, or leak and just didn't last the test of time. The Expedition 134 boxes have lived in the back of our Landcruiser wagon to stop loose items flying around and I also take one on the back of the Landcruiser ute for long trips to keep certain items safe and dry. The best feature is not having to untie everything to access the contents. Wont be buying any other storage containers
