Very useful for storing things you always carry in your car and want to keep stowed away neatly. The small size fits the back of a Toyota 4Runner and holds a huge amount. I don't have enough stuff [and I carry tow straps, folding shovels, food, blankets etc.] to fill the large size, so bear this in ...

We used the Modular Hauler 3 on a recent long-distance bike trip. We had BOB bike trailers, and the Modular 3 fit right into the BOB. The separate bags and color coding were great (food and cookstove in one, clothes in another, camping stuff in the last one). Would be nice if they had an option for additional shoulder straps. But they seemed strong and well-built.

This pack carries a lot of equipment and supplies. The best part is the modular pieces that you can take out separately. It's durable and well-made, and will last long time. The only drawback, once you fill it up it can be quite heavy and hard to carry.

I've been looking for something to make family road trips more organized. Instead of multiple suitcases, this holds everything our family (2 toddlers share a cube) needs for a quick get away. The negative comments concerning the rigidity of this, if not fully packed, do make sense on a certain level, although I prefer that it is able to fold down flat to be stored away when not in use. Also the Mountainsmith Cooler Cube fits this system perfectly, which makes it even more versatile. I would definitely recommend this, especially at STP prices. I intend to purchase as many Mountainsmith products as possible!
The hauler has piping for free-standing access, but the modular units only have cross panel webbing for added stability. They will stand on their own though.

No; mine collapse almost flat and are unlined.

No, the modular units do not stand alone.|Maybe once they are full, they might.|But, they are too flexible and soft to stand.

No foam sides. That would be nice.

There isn't any foam on the sides of the Mountainsmith modular Hauler but the modules fit well in their carrier by using straps to compress the modules. The modules have a see through top and also a storage slot to keep a storage inventory list or whatever.

The cubes aren't standalone. They fold flat. In order for them to fill up the space allotted in the hauler, they need to have something in them.

They don't have rigid foam sides. It isn't a problem if you stuff the individual bags full- The outer bag has no foam sides either-
