To be honest, you'd be hard pressed to find a box of this quality at this price point. Although the seal is not entirely waterproof, it's not an issue as an angler should really leave flies to dry in the open air prior to storing away.
The major issue with this equipment, is not the box itself, but the excessive amount of adhesive used on the label attached to it. I used various methods to remove it but even with acetone the situation just got worse, culminating in sticky opage residue all over (literally) the box, ruining both its functionality and appearance.
In Decathlon's defence, I used their Whatsapp customer service number to provide photographs and an explanation to why I thought the product was let down by this overengineered labelling, and they happily sent me another one and covered the postage costs.
For this reason I will score the product 3 out of 5 stars but this does not reflect on the product itself, which is more than competent for its intended function.
Congratulations to the Decathlon Team for understanding the problem and being prompt and efficient in rectifying it.
For anyone wanting to purchase this box, I recommend avoidingf solvent to remove the label, opting for almost boiling water (careful, it's hot!) and a sharp implement like a scalpel. Take your time and it will come off, but don't rush the process.
