I use totes when I can, but since I'm carrying a wife, 2 sons and 2 dogs in the truck with all our gear, things get a little tight. I've resorted to using duffle bags lined with plastic garbage bags. I use sodium bicarb sprinkled in. When we get to the farm, I use a totes to sort the stuff out for the three of us. When I'm leaving camp to come home, the scent-sensitive stuff gets put back into the duffle bags for the trip home.
The last place I worked received a lot of heavy stuff in wooden crates. I was able to snag several of them, painted them up and put lids on them. Their dimensions are like an army foot locker blown up 2-3X. In the off-season, these crates take all the hunting gear sorted into garbage bags. The wood keeps the mice out. The bags keep scent from accumulating. Of course, I sprinkle in some sodium bicarb.
Since this is a hunting camp, some of the crates were dual-purposed into furniture. One got varnished and had a back put on it, and sofa pillows re-covered for the top. That one takes all the turkey gear, and it also serves as seating in the dining room.
Lastly, I have several nylon army surplus duffle bags that hold our outerwear, and the other stuff that seldom sees a washing machine. These duffles are waterproof and have backpack straps on the side. When we are ready to leave for the stand, we throw our gear in these bags and head out. We don't climb into our outermost layers until we're in the stand. It saves us a lot of sweat and stink.
