Looking for something to protect the Nox while travelling in the car and was just wondering what other people use?

If I break the detector down into three pieces, it looks like I would need a bag 30" x12", but if I leave the top two sections together it would need a bag around 36" x12"...

I don't really need the bag to have loads of external pockets, nor do I want buy an excessively long bag either...so far in have seen several so calledtactical rifle cases on Amazon that look promising, but are obviously Chinese made, so I am a bit dubious of their quality...

If anybody has any suggestions, in would be most appreciative,

Regards

Peter

I haven't seen these in the flesh but they look about the right size and says same day dispatch from Ireland - just happened to be the first I saw

It sounds like a small detector bag would fit the bill. I have one of these and the quality is good. https://www.crawfordsmd.com/metal-detec ... ag-black-s
Maybe a bit pricey for what it is but mine was free. :D
Why not just place it in an old blanket for travelling?

I`ve always found I`ve never needed a Bag myself, I`ve always just put it either on the back seat or in the boot surrounded by other gear I`ve taken along to stop it possibly moving , and in all the years I`ve done that , not once has anything happened to the detector that wouldn`t have done if it had been in a bag. So my view for what its worth , is ..............save your money . ;)

Like wise I just put a carrier bag over the muddy coil if it's going on a car seat. Even though I own a detector bag I don't use it. Detectors are pretty tough and can stand some good knocks, it's just a tool. The only part I protect is the screen and have a phone screen film on it.

Read somewhere that some use a snowboard bag - maybe worth looking into.

Thanks for the advice everyone...

Like many folks, on my day to day detecting trips, I am happy to pop the detector on the back seat of my vehicle...However, with the nice weather being hopefully around the corner, I was looking for something to protect my detector while on weekends away ect, when the car is already full of luggage and possibly with other people in the vehicle as well...

Quite like the size of the CMD one as it should hold a 15" coil as well, should I ever buy one....
