Waterproof-ish toolbox

Any suggestions as to what's best for a semi waterproof toolbox? My previous one was a sort of tool bag but the zip has rusted solid now. It is kept inside the console so it does not need to be fully waterproof however some water definitely does go in there. There is also a relatively small access hatch to fit in there so most of the traditional plastic ones won't fit, not that they're necessary either as we only carry a basic selection on board.

Thoughts?

I use one of these from solent plastics.

It's waterproof, but also has a rust inhibitor in the plastic.

I'd make your hatch bigger to fit something decent in.
