    Default Transmitter bags

    Hey there fellow Viners!

    I'm looking for a new bag to carry my leads, transmitters(vm-810, 850), and probe rod.

    Do you use anything to carry your equipment?

    Where did you find it?

    What fits in there?

    Thanks!

    I use a five gallon bucket with a bucket liner / saddle bag that has various pockets to hold things.


    An old 5 gallon spackel bucket thrown away at some construction site or you can buy one at home depot. Home Depot also carrys the bucket liner.

    I tried lots of bags and finally discovered that if you just shop around for one of those ice cooler duffel bags, you'll have a great waterproof bag that works in all weather conditions. Zip it shut with just the leads hanging out and the inside stays perfectly dry on the wettest day. They're worthless for putting ice in anyways as you'll have a bag full of water within the hour. Sharp tools will cut the lining after a while but many come with outside pockets for that. They're not that expensive and you can find them almost everywhere. It's just a matter of picking the right size and shape. Durability doesn't always follow price so don't assume the most expensive one lasts the longest. I've had one last three years that I got for $12 bucks at an Aldis grocery store. I had a company provided $40 bag that I never used because it didn't measure up.

    I used a Dewalt tool bag for years. It is a black and yellow bag big enough to hold your transmitter and tools.

    This is the bag I think.

    the can cooler bag I just do not see how that would hold up with daily use and dropping it on the ground and such. I did pick up a cheap one to use as my bad weather insert t my tool bag. The 30" bag seemed a bit over kill unless you also put your receiver in the bag. A lot of my bags seem to wear out on the bottom. I use a 16" fat max bag by stanley. It has a plastic bottom so it does not wear out. I like to have zipper pockets for my tools but their pockets are to small so I use a tactical pistol clip holster and have it attached directly to my trnsmitter.
