You Can't Go Wrong with These Travel Trolleys Shaped Like Jerry Cans

For some reason, when you say jerry can this editor can’t think of anything else than a Land Rover Defender. Sure, I’m not talking about the newly-furbished models, but rather 1970s 4x4 issue that you still find in the wild being driven by real off-road enthusiasts. The later that’s what you need to be to buy a travel trolley-shaped like a jerry can.

Don’t be that surprised somebody considered turning fuel containers made from pressed steel into travel trolleys, after all isn’t that what you do with fuel? There’s no proper road trip without a full tank, and that’s a fact.

Nevertheless, the 1930s Germany military jerry cans are far from what you get these days. The uses of these metal boxes have spread quite a lot. Heck, they even manage them in folk music of Chitral, a remote area in KPK region of Pakistan, where it has a centre role as a drum.

The travel trolleys you can observe above measures 460 x 350 x 160 millimeters (18 x 13 x 6.29 inches) and are therefore approved for air travel as hand luggage. Apart from its peculiar design, it comes with the regular extendable telescopic handle, while the rubber wheels ensure a comfortable handling.

Formally, they are called G-Cases and are available in four different colors (green, grey, white and black). Some special edition models are available on demand too. In case you were wondering, it’s a Belgium company manufacturing them and one unit will set you back at 168 euros which is about 188 American dollars.

Again, carrying one of these metal containers in an airport may attract all the attention, some of which you might actually want to avoid. And we’re saying that because the German/British design jerrican is still a standard fuel and other liquids container in the armies of the NATO countries. On the other hand, you’d probably be one of the few people out there to travel that way.
