Does anyone remember who made the cheap alternative helmet box? Thermos or Walmart or someone... it was a cooler or truck organizer thing.

Thanks
Dave

I used a "Thule Go Box" in my car.

This looks like a cheaper version:

good link, one of the "also bought" cases looks perfect for a transit headset holder I have been looking for

line it with some cheap foam padding, tie it to either side of the car to secure it.

Those both actually look much better and sturdier than my old OMP helmet box which currently retails for $120. I didn't pay that much for it, though, seems like I got it for next to nothing way back when. It's literally a cardboard box covered with cheap seat fabric.
