Stoner MacGyver marijuana product review: GearBox stash box
Cases like this are ideal for people who like to travel not only with meds but also with a nice piece of glass to smoke out of. Throwing your pipe in a case like this keeps it safe in the car and also prevents your ride from filling with bongwater stank. They aren't completely smell-proof, though; the manufacturers say the GearBox failed against a drug dog's nose in one experiment. But both cases are also waterproof, for you river rats looking for a way to keep your stash dry this rafting season.
Price-wise, you can find cheaper cases at sporting goods stores, but you get what you pay for. Although I have a large Plano case that was about half the price of the $48 GearBox, it's made of flimsy plastic that bends and can pop open with stress; it split apart after getting partially crunched under ski gear this winter.
It's also possible to find top-quality boxes from Pelican -- arguably the only company to match GearBox's rugged construction -- for comparable prices online right now. But again, if I am going to be buying a case anyway, spending a few extra dollars for something made in Colorado that's made specifically for tokers like myself is worth it.
We've got an extra GearBox to give away this week for the best stash-spot story you've got. Tell us the most creative, stealthy or downright stupid hiding place you store your cannabis accoutrements in the comments below and you'll take home the small-size GearBox. We'll announce the winners next Friday.
We can't guarantee all products sent in will be reviewed here at Stoner MacGyver, but if you've got something you think is the greatest invention since sliced pot-bread, send us an e-mail at email@example.com.
