I cannot think of any situation in today's date when that would happen under normal circumstances. Having a can handy at home and using it for that occasional trip to the wilderness makes sense, but having it in the boot all the time....well, at least I don't see any value in that.

This is a really useful thread....getting all the little things we plan / buy compiled in a single place helps a lot.

Many Thanks for sharing and also for the effort in creating the thread.

I recently purchased a Meba Bag from Instamojo.

These bags are made by a fellow TBHPian - patchyboy.

https://www.instamojo.com/Meba/?ref=profile_bar

https://www.instamojo.com/Meba/flexi...ack/?ref=store

https://www.instamojo.com/Meba/flexi...nly/?ref=store

I bought the Flexi bag with the lid.

It got delivered in reasonably quick time (though I felt it could have been faster. Probably, I've been spoilt by how quickly stuff gets shipped nowadays thanks to Amazon).

Apart from that, I cant think of a single negative point.

My views:

The bag is big. It's not small but then I wanted a large bag! The footprint is good for how much it can swallow. It has dividers which you can use to customise the size of the individual partitions. Everything is velcro and doesnt seal very well but works decently.

The bag has a base which is made of velcro. This helps the bag stay in place on a fabric carpet like what is in my car. It doesnt move around when you are driving. This is a very cool feature and after a lot of high speed driving, I can safely it works like a charm.

What I really like it, it has a LOT of space! I used to use a large carton box earlier and just dump everything inside it. Now, I can use the pouches on the sides of the Meba Bag to store some of the smaller items and the larger stuff can be stored inside.

With the lid, it looks a lot better and reduces the dust going inside the bag itself.

The quality and fit and finish of the bag is extremely good and it feels like it can survive a few years in tough conditions.

Overall, I'm extremely happy with this bag and for anyone like me who typically has a bunch of stuff in the boot, this is a must-buy.

I usually keep a bunch of tool kits like an allen key set, a Force Tool Kit, a screwdriver kit, multimeter, puncture repair kit, lots of microfibre cloths, a steel funnel, and so many other things that I dont remember right now.

One thing for sure. Honda cars are very short of Lighter sockets. I can see thr need fot one or two for phones, one for GPS, and one or two for other things. Most adapters for sockets support very low currents so cannot be used for heavier stuff. I had a lot of trouble finding a two way, 10A adapter. This is the absolute minimum for me - car fridge, and GPS!

For a change, the new WRV has 1 HDMI, 1 USB and 1 12V socket.

I have added 2 sockets in my car by tapping the empty fuse sockets. Looks very OEM, you can get up to 30A power if needed, no dangling wires and no OEM wires to be cut.
