    Hmm, pelican case, that's an idea..
    Any detailed thoughts on how you'd mount it?

    I'm thinking on 2 aluminum holders (custom made) like the handguards clamps attached to the panniers rack and the iM2050 pelican case centered in the pannier mount so you can open the Pelican lid to the outside between the pannier mount frame

    The upside is that it is "locked" by the case when it is attached to the bike, the downside is that you have to remove the case to access it. I suppose if all you are going to do is put tools, first aid, tire repair stuff this is a very good option. I tend to use that case to sit on when working on the bike anyway. Hmm...yous gots me think'n. That TT unit is just stupid expensive, but I like the idea of the case to get tools and tire repair kit out of my pannier.

    That's the idea to get rid of those kits (tools, tire & first aid) and have a lockable and waterproof box

    LockableTooltube would be a much cheaper option, if your not hooked on the asthetics?

    True, the tool tube is cheaper, but it doesn't hold as much, and the objects have to be round.

    I've got 2 tool rolls, and a mini set of jumper cables I'd like to stash somewhere to free up space in my pannier...

    I agree though, it's an egregious amount of money for a plastic box...

    12" long with 3.25" diameter is good enough for me. At $4.99, it's a steal, if you're not much into aesthetics. Photo and link, courtesy of Rick (Kildalla). Thanks, Rick!

    I already have a tool tube and I need more room for tools and parts for the big trips. I need to get the stuff out of my panniers and was also hoping someone had experience with the Twalcom box since it seems to be a nice size and uses an out of the way spot.
