Our Verdict

Before we started testing, we had all six of these cargo boxes laid out side-by-side in a garage. It was pretty readily apparent that our two $300 boxes, the ones we've deemed the "short and stumpy," were considerably less nice than the other four. What we were the most curious about, then, was what was going to separate a $500 box from a $700 box. At first glance they seemed really similar, so we couldn't quite figure out what the secret of the top-of-the-line boxes was, but we were determined to find out.
