These are not your everyday patrol boxes. First, they are aluminum which makes them lighter and more durable than wood. After years of camping experience by many in the troop, we designed and had someone fabricate these quality aluminum patrol boxes. A couple of things that constantly bothered us about typical wooden patrol boxes were the weight and you really couldn't put a LP tank and stove in them. For the same outside dimensions we have accomplished everything, in a lighter and more durable box. This is the complete and ultimate patrol box.

A detailed inventory can be seen below.


  • Aluminum construction - won't rust, rot, splinter, or fall apart
  • Very strong - will easily support 300 lbs standing on it (we've tried)
  • Very light - the box empty weighs in at just over 40 lbs - half the weight of one with plywood
  • Holds 5 lb LP tank and camp stove
  • Everything stored in Rubbermaid containers - keeps things clean and organized
    • Bread boxes for paper towels; foil, zip-loc bags, garbage bags; utensils
    • Two spring-loaded recessed handles on each side for easier carrying by younger scouts
  • Baked on powder coat finish - as strong as the aluminum it's covering
