Plano 3600 + Plano 3601 gets my vote.
It isn't as fancy as those inserts, but it gets the job done and fits in the original box.

But if I had to vote for one of your options, I'd probably say the Broken Token one. My Lords of Waterdeep insert from them really is a thing of beauty.

I have used the plano option as well as crafting my own foam core custom insert.

The advantage inserts have is the plano's have the lids that flop open and take up space on the table. an insert does not, so in a game that already takes up a decent amount of space, the storage solution is minimized.

I do have the brokentoken insert for Pathfinder ACG and its production value is very high. Since I bought it though I have started to do my own work with foamcore and I like it better, and over the long haul of making inserts for multiple games it will be cheaper.

To be honest, I might end up writing off the Plano boxes and getting the BrokenToken insert for Caverna someday... I just hadn't heard of them until after I set up the box the way I did.

Price looks close enough to equal.

Daedalus offers an assembled version at double cost.

I built my Broken Token insert... I found it easy - I've built 3 different game's inserts.

Flip a coin?

There are lots of BT users in comment areas. I have never looked at Daedalus' groupies comments.

Good Luck.

There'll be an officially licensed insert by go7gaming coming soon. That's the real deal.

I'm planning on picking up the Broken Token version.

I've been using a Plano-type box and don't like it. I think Tom Vassel may have covered this exact insert on (Monday's) Board Game Breakfast this week.

Only have experience with Broken Token. But I LOVE it and think it's worth every penny. It has significantly reduces set-up and take-down time, and considering the number of plays Caverna has seen, that has really added up.

Make your own with foamcore. Unless you are the type of person who has to be showing off his latest stuff everyday it's cheaper and more satisfying when you are done to make your own. Plenty of plans on the web and it isn’t that hard.

During setup you can remove most large plano boxes and set them aside.
