Ther are actually several different models: The one pictured (all black tough box a CONTICO 37" Work Bin or ProTuff Bin, 50 GAL measuring 37" x 21" x 20"H), another with similar dimensions but it also has wheels and an extending arm (Used but SF professional who only buy made in America, the Stanley Promobile Job chest, 50 Gal with approx the same deminsions) for easy movement from the tarmac to your living quarters or the truck that is driving you there;and a smaller black plastic foot locker (made by Contico,flimsy, easy to break into and must be totally covered in tape to get your stuff home). This one has two non-lockable latches and a hole on the middle side to place a pad lock (just above the carrying handle that everyone seems to buy to mail things home in but then they use it on their 2nd, 3rd, or 6th deployment. I have deployed using two of the first type (unit purchased) and mailed items home in the last type (bought in AFG for $15-$20). The second type I recieved from a 7th Grp guy, who's unit purchased them for all the deploying paxs, and he gave it to me when he returned because I helpedhim out prior to and during his deployment.
