It is NOT HIGHLY WATER RESISTANT, or PRESSURE SEALED
For those of you who are interested primarily in the "HIGHLY WATER RESISTANT" & "PRESSURE SEALED" qualities....IT FAILED, MISERABLY!!
There's a product defect that occurred during the molding process, and poor design QA "quality assurance". The raised lip on my "LARGE" box has a profound "dip" in it. It's on both sides of the lower half, and it's found directly above the side handles. If you run your thumb across them, you'll feel the dip. It's even more dramatic when you sight down the length of the raised edge, from front to read...on both left, and right side of the box. When the lid is closed, the lip at that low point, will not compress the yellow plastic gasket on the upper lid.
How did I test it? I took a piece of writing paper, about an 1" in width, and a few inches long, and placed it across the raised lip seal on the lower half of the box, directly about the side handles, so that part of the paper is hanging out, and the remainder, hanging inside............. closed the lid, and secured the metal clasps. Pulled the paper out, with absolutely no effort/no resistance, which proves that the raised lip was NOT contacting the upper yellow seal. Perform that same routine anywhere else on the box, and you cannot remove the paper without giving it a good hard pull......meaning that the seal is doing it's job.
So much being water resistant, and pressure sealed. Shame on DeWalt!! Other than those two highly touted qualities...... it's still a good tote box. Just don't expect to keep the contents dry in wet conditions. Of course, now it's a bit hard to swallow the price, since it's now in a different class.
Pros: DURABLE, and REASONABLY WELL DESIGNED, but....
Cons: poor water seal, and not pressure tight
