The volume units are given as litres, but the linear measurements are given in inches. The 22 litre box isn't available on the US site.

The closest they have to the 22 litre box is the 26 litre box. It's over 31 inches long, which is a bit long, but I thought the extra space could be used for something else (dice tower? pocket rule book? scotch flask?). I was going to order it, but shipping is a steep $20.

If you're considering a plastic container, try to identify its interior dimensions. They could be smaller than the exterior.

Also, some containers may taper in size from the top to the bottom. So a mapboard that fits on the upper portion might not towards the bottom.

That's a good thing about the Really Useful website - they provide both interior and exterior dimensions.

As discussed, the 22 litre box isn't sold in the states, although you can order it from Amazon for four times the UK price ...

Maybe MMP will sell you an empty cardboard shipping box the same size as the box they ship the map sets in...
Maybe they might bring a bunch of them to WO...
