Well, I've progressed beyond Stage 2, but I'm not happy about it.
Yikes, that's a killer deal - if only I were a bit taller.
My wife asked that same question, without the smiley face.
Specifically, Pelican Hardigg Cases:  
Nothing, actually.  But you need good containers if you want nothing protected, and these are the best.    
 I'm an order of magnitude over that, so $200 doesn't surprise me.  Total weight is 333 lbs and also pretty bulky - in the end the pallet was about 4' x 4' x 6'.   I ended up arranging the shipping myself and found a price comparable to eBay's, so hopefully it's all O.K. Thanks.

Not uncommon here as well.  That Luciano Barbera jacket I copped was listed as a 50 but with an oddly small 20" pit to pit.  I thought since it was unlined, I might have a chance of squeezing into it.  Turns out it's actually 21.5", and being unlined, a bit big.  So it goes.
