Default Pit stuff carrier

I dn't even know what to call what I am looking for...

What do you guys use to carry your starter box, tools, fuel bottle, etc. back and forth from the pit lane to your truck and back when you race where you can't leave your stuff? I have seen some homemade carry bins, I've seen 5 gallon buckets... Is there a nice product on the market for this?
Thanks!

You may have to find an equivanlent at Lowes or Home Depot or something, but this is a popular option up here.

The bag on the left of the picture.

Heres a couple Home Depot Options:

$18.97

$29.99

I have one with a top flap...Keeps the snow off the gear.

I think he is looking for something to cary his stuff from his pit table to pit lane. Not from home to the track. If you showed up in pitlane with one of those massive Stanley jobbers in Pit Lane you'd probably get tossed.... Limited space as it is.

i think the milk crate is gonna be a good cheap solution..

your pit man is 7 so that means hes short. like said before, you get to the pit.. and pitman has something to stand on to get more hieght

one of the pit guys at my local track is a little person... yes a real little person.. and he uses a folding chair to stand on. his driver has a spare bump box that he keeps under the pit table all the time. its hooked to a car battery the entire time. noone bothers it.. we are some tight club racers here.. everyine knows everyone, and a newcomer is watched closely...
