Review: Mad Cow Metal Works Dry Box

Sick of getting your stuff soaked while floating? A beefy Dry Box from Bozeman’s Mad Cow Metal Works is the ticket. The standard container (36” x 13” x 13.5”) is a great all-around box, providing plenty of room for your blue tarp, pump, patch kit, first aid kit, camping gear, food, and that special bottle of scotch for around the campfire (or for when your vessel capsizes and you valiantly decide to go down with the ship). Burly aluminum construction makes this sucker seemingly indestructible. A full-length hinge on the lid will stay strong for many summers to come, and can-jar latches keep the box closed tighter than a duck’s behind. $450;
