Buckets may be the very best Christmas present ever. My favorite style is the round bucket, because it is easier to use on river trips when “shopping for groceries” or washing dishes. However we have oval shaped Buckets also with two straps for the handle. After you use these at the grocery store, to haul your pipe fittings, or your wet suit. Soon you will not be able to live with out one. they are handy beyond description.
