This armored trunk puts other footlockers to shame

My daughter will be going to college in the fall, and we’ve already started thinking about the things she’ll need to take with her.  She wants a footlocker, and I agree it will be great for transferring stuff from home and for storing things in her dorm room.  I had a footlocker when I was in college back in the dark ages, but it was nothing like the trunks you can order from DormCo.  The trunks themselves are made of 3/8″ premium grade Baltic Birch hardwood plywood, covered with Armored 1000d Cordura Nylon textured sheathing material, and finished with heavy-duty proprietary nickel plated steel latches, lock, and hardware.  The trunks are waterproof, scratch proof, and dent proof.  Add a lock to it, and it sounds like the perfect storage spot for your valuables, right?  You ain’t seen nothing yet!  You can add wheels so Dear Old Dad doesn’t get a hernia carrying it in.  You can have them install a Honeywell laptop safe in the bottom, and you can add an eyeball anchor and cable lock so you can lock the trunk down to a piece of heavy furniture so no one can remove it from the room.  Oh, and you can add a hardwood tray to it to hold your socks.  The College Trunk is available in 16 colors for $229.19.  It’s about $414 with the laptop safe, cable lock and anchor system, wheels, and hardwood tray.  It’s a big investment, but it will make it through the college years (perhaps more unscathed than your kid) and will protect all that expensive gear required these days.

    Sadly, this is probably to be recommended these days.
