Airtight seal, clear sides so you can see inside and wheels to help you move it around.

According to specs on the manufacture’s website model #NMP-XL has a capacity of 67 quarts.  67 quarts = 16.75 gallons.  My rule of thumb for unmilled grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate this would hold about 83.75 lbs of grain.  67 quarts should be able to easily hold a full 50 to 55 lb bag of grain. This is a rough estimate.  Actual capacity will vary.

    I have to pipe in on these. I’m not a fan. I have a small one of these (not sure the volume) but it isn’t very good. The plastic is thin, and thus the walls can be pushed out of shape and allow for gaps in the gasket. The lid is “snapped” on with a hinge and a latch. This doesn’t appear to be air tight at all times… you need to fiddle with it to get it to look OK, but who knows if it is really air tight.
    I think brewers would be better served to get something more substantial.
