The Hobie H-Crate has ample space for your fishing gear, keeping it organized and right at your fingertips. It's easily removable - and the H-Rail carrying handles are great to mount H-Rail accessories. Each wall of the H-Crate has a grid of recessed mounting points to connect just about anything. With four rod holders - one at each corner and four nylon tie-down straps, you can fish for hours. And when you're done, the H-Crate breaks down in seconds.

shipped almost immediiately. Great service over the phone. The crate looks and is built great. It also has lashing for storage of rods.
Kind of pricey, but I really like the mounting options and quality build that this box has. It has drainage holes and will stand up to a great beating. The rod holders on the corners are very secure with the integrated bungees.
I got this as a gift from my wife. It's made with very sturdy material so it is much more than just a box to hold your gear. I think the price is pretty steep, but I guess it's an investment and has a whole lot more features and durability than the box I used to bring on my trips.
I bought this after fishing for years using a milk crate. This is a lot more durable and has more mounting options than a simple milk crate does. The H rails let you attach other items such as rod holders or the Hobie tackle bin (highly recommended). This is not the easiest thing to put together, you will require a rubber mallet but once you put it together it is a solid product. The four rod holders at each corner of the box are a great feature. They hold the reeks verry securely whether they are conventional or spinning outfits. They make it really easy to put rods, although I will say that the 2 rear ones are a little difficult to access, I also attached 3 rod holders on the back of the crate, just like the arrangement on the Hobie Livewell. The crate is very solid and lets you take a lot of stuff in the box. I only wish that they made a lid for the box. I don't want to lose all of the contents if my Outback inverts in the surf. The clips that are included with the box fit onto the Hobie kayaks really well.
