    Waterproof film container/box, where/who sells them?

    I've google'd my brains out for the last hour, and I cannot find a film canister/container/box/whatever that holds rolls in bulk (5 or 6 rolls) and is preferably waterproof. Nothing for 120 either.

    Only things I have found are some black 120 tubes, but they are for just a single roll.

    Anybody know where/who sells something like what I'm looking for? I know I've seen them before.

    Try Porters camera -- look in the film and darkroom accrssories. I was just looking there and saw some containers.

    This waterproof case might hold four bulk rolls? Not sure of bulk roll dimensions...

    In surplus stores you can find cheaply a decontamination kit which is waterproof and can be carried on a belt, if desired. It's just an isopropyl alcohol vial and pads.Take out the contents and it will hold 5 -6 rolls of 120 or 220 in wrapper.

    Try the very small Pelican cases that hold iPods, cell phones, etc.

    I use Ortlieb map cases. They are 100% waterproof and very light but strong. They make some very large ones; I use A3 size ones and bought over web. Dave

    I just bought a Pelican #1020 as a waterproof case for a GPS, it will hold 5-120 rolls easily probably 8-10 rolls of 35 depending how they're arranged. It's a tad bit oversized for it but, Oh well.
    They ain't cheap at around $20 but should last a lifetime. I got mine at REI outfitters.
    Some small fishing or shooting boxes will also work. I got the Pelican because the top is clear not opaque.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    A couple of ideas. This case is made by Fuji and sold at Japan Exposures. It holds ten and has a push on lid. I've never held it under water, but it's certainly splash proof:


    This case is no longer sold but holds 6 rolls with a much tighter seal and a clasp. Again, never tried it under water, but it certainly seems water tight. This cases are still sold, they now form part of a camera 'cleaning kit' containing a cloth, blower, and some fluid and can be found on places like Amazon. The case is curved like a hip flask and fits well into a pocket:
