    Nah, that was our bad. We are currently using a 3rd Party Logistics agent to pack and send our stuff and they f..'d it up. They are on the way now though!

    Been looking for a low profile (around 200-250mm high) storage box or two to go my racks but they all seem to be much larger sizes.
    Seen anything around?

    If you have a look at the YouTube channel Sidetracked, one of the guys had a GU with a front runner roof rack and has one of these cases mounted to it.
    He drilled some holes through the base and bolted it from the underside with lock nuts inside the case.

    Yeah, I don't think there is a lot of low profile stuff around.

    Spacecase do a low profile version but even that might be slightly higher than you are looking for.

    Might sound stupid. But have a look at some guitar cases going around. If a suitable one was to be found, just rip the original foam casing out and reline it with something of your chooice. One of my guitar cases is un-destructible. Unsure how they would fair out in the weather though.

    Seen a few made for various specialty uses. Best option I have seen so far are the ones used for tools/took kits as they are quite solid. Some aren't moulded and just have foam lining that can be easily removed, but most are not water and dust proof. This one looks like OK and is my pick so far, but will have a look in-store first.

    Thanks everyone for the ideas.
