Padded Cells

Post by chief54 » Fri May 11, 2018 6:23 am

Outdoor Research used to make padded cells to carry stoves, water filters, etc. They no longer carry them. Any ideas where they can be found now?

I use this stuff:

It's sort of bubble wrap with foil on either side. It works great for padding, amazingly for cup and pot insulation and weighs next to nothing. I tape it up with:

any local lumber yard should sell the insulation by the foot for a dollar or two. I dump my freeze dried food into an insulated cup and 15 minutes later it's still to hot to eat.

Thanks everybody, I like the Tenba, just trying to figure out which one will work for me, I am leaning towards the Tool Box 8. Love your response Tortuga,pretty funny when I first started looking for padded cells that kind of stuff came up so I had to change my search terms. I could think of some folks who would benefit from such accommodations.
