Default I miss my Stanley XL parts organizer (now discontinued)

Last year I had a really nice set up for small service work. I had 2 of these XL parts organizers
http://www.ebay.com/itm/STANLEY-Tota...p2047675.l2557

however they were stolen a few months ago amongst other things.
As a replacement I am now using these fat max bins
http://toolguyd.com/stanley-fatmax-d...ro-organizers/

and although they are nice and durable, they just don't match up to the portability and storage capacity my old bins had. These new bins are stackable but after stacking 2 of them and locking them into place, they are kind of awkward to carry due to one handle being offset.
So do any of you guys know of a suitable bin to my original one and where I can pick them up?

Stanley XL organizers were by far the best. Having rough times finding something that can fill its place. Can't believe there isn't something similar.

I feel the same way. This is the replacement for its discontinued model http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-STST17...=dp_ob_title_h
not a comparable product if you ask me.

I just need to find a parts storage carry all that can hold massive amounts of screws, fittings, etc that I an carry with one hand.
The Stanley XL had 46 compartments! Wish there was something comparable and as durable on the market.

Lol, yeah, tried the 3-1, definitely not a decent replacement. It's 1/4 of the size

Kinda pricey though:

Have you considered a rolling tool box with a handle
(like an airline rollerbag /carryon)?

Yes very nice and portable, looks durable too but likely way over my budget.

I have thought about it but I do a lot of resi service work and going up and down flights of stairs with a rolling cart is not practical.
