It holds 16 bottles, I use it for my shock oils. I keep a paper towel in the bottom to absorb any drips and its nice because it will contain any spills. It also fits perfectly in hauler bag drawers.

Best part about it?? $5 bucks on Amazon

Who the hell would pay $50 for a bag to put shock oil in?

High rollers bud...high rollers.


Wife picked me up a box from Hobby Lobby. She was tired of me using a little cardboard box ( bottom fell out finally and duct tape wouldn't stick to it due to it being saturated with oils for 15 years) for like $10. Cant remember the name but it's made by a company in England. Tall enough for those odd size bottles and fits about 30 of them. Lid locks both ways so you can stack multiple without them sliding everywhere. Not bad for $10.

Guess its $7 on line

this is why I just roll with a tackle box. all these specialized containers are annoying. having a big rolling $150 bag might be cool for travel but I don't need it.
my shock oils fit in the top they made for hanging lures. it doesn't hold every bottle I have so I bring only the weights I know I'll need.
the tackle box holds enough parts to build a whole 1/8 scale buggy(out of their packages) and all of my tools. very happy with it. I didn't think I would be and now I feel it's the best $40 I've spent

That is not high rollers, thats just foolish. I have a Hudy bag for my on-road cars as well as a pouch for my tools. I did not pay for price for them, I would not pay Hudy prices for their stuff. Its quality, but not that quality. I am far from poor, and I love to spend money. But I would rather spend $50 on so many other things than a Hudy shock oil bag.

So I wound up with getting a plano amo box from dicks. All of the things you guys post would be fine if I was storing the 2oz bottles. But since the 4oz bottles are twice as big half as many fit. I was trying to get away with using one container.
