25 ltr water tight bucket, where are they 4sale online?

Yesterday I had an accident completely ripping my tesch boxes appart...

But I saw two germans driving around with each 4 25ltr water tight buckets with a screw lid on top and that put on a frame...

Does anyone know where I will be able to find those online so they can be shipped to me?

Thanx

the ones I've used for caving and canyoning are white drums with red screw tops. does that sound like what you're after? we got ours from Quip-U in Bristol: +44-117-955-8054. Paul will be able to sort out postage or tell you who makes them. I've seen them in France, too, so you should be able to get them locally from any good outdoor stockist or boat shop.

For the best waterstorage available, check these out. You can rool them up when empty. I've got two. I tie them to the bike when needed. You cn even drop them, they are bomb-proof. Mine are about 5 years old, never leaked. Also, hang them in the sun and they become a shower.

The buckets at the bottom of the page come closest, but the ones I am looking for are not round but squars and a round lid at the top. I have got a picture of them but as my laptop broke I cant readout my digicam...

The msr I have got one but I dont wanna store water, I want to store my gear ;-)

safe, cheap, soft ... sounds like the rear suspension on a tenere!
they certainly look interesting and more damage tolerant than aluminium boxes
