Stop grinding your wetsuit into that poorly paved asphalt at your homebreak and throwing it soaking wet into the back of your car to stew all day. Your wetsuit will thank you. Your car's interior will thank you. And most importantly, your coworkers that you grab lunch with will thank you. Nobody wants to drive around in a car that reeks of well-marinated, rotten neoprene. Buckets are available at any big-box retail store; we approve of the $10 to $15 version, which will more than suffice.
