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 ...

Got this to better organize my gear for car camping and road trips. I do archaeology field work and often camp on site. These are BIG and roomy. I used one for sleeping gear such as bag, pad, pillow, etc. Another for assorted gear such as camp stoves, kitchen items, lanterns, toiletries, I'm thinking of getting smaller zip bags for the small items to stash in this cube. Then I use the other for folded clothing. Fits in the back of my Honda Element just great and keeps everything in order. I first tried it on a long haul to Texas and back and couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.
Another reviewer mentioned the see-thru tops but really they are transparent, not clear and part of it is obscured by a pocket too. So you really cannot see what is inside. So that feature isn't as helpful but the colors do help.

Whether a winter ski trip or summer expedition, the Modular Hauler is the best way to stay organized when you are on the road. Great quality--the cubes take the abuse of being stuffed full of gear and then stuffed into the car.

The other reviews are accurate. Nice, large compartments....cardboard or plastic is needed to keep their shape. Sturdy construction, quality zippers. Not really sure how pleased I am to have transparent covers to the cubes, since I bought this as a truck organizer and I don't like people able to see from my truck window what I have packed away. All in all, though, quite a satisfying purchase.
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-

No they don't stand alone.
