I have Tim's vest bag from RockSteadi. It is great for a FM vest & the arm too sits nicely within the vest. However this bag will not get the BM vest in it without first removing the Carbon Arm. Even then I have to use some effort to squeeze it in there. It just became too much bother, so now I use the soft carry bag that comes with the BM vest. I can get the arm inside the vest (in the Rocksteadi Arm bag) w/ both in the Klassen bag.
When I travel with it I pack it in a Rubbermaid Action Packer and this works well for shipping. I believe Howard makes a nice rigid / padded case for the BM vest. Certainly take a look there before you buy elsewhere. Also, the fact that the new Genesis version of the Klassen vest seperates completely at the front door, makes it much easier to pack small. I am having my traditional vest retrofitted with this Genesis front door panel as I found it to have a much better fit across the front of my hips.
Let us know what you come up with.

Ive just received my new Vest case from Tim at Rocksteadi:
He has modified his original design to accomadate my Klassen Vest. My vest fits easily into the new bag with the carbon arm attached, and plenty of room left over. Its a very nice semi-rigid design and attaches to the end of your magliner, which i think is really cool. Im a pretty big size vest so id imagine this bag would accomadate most/all sizes of Walters fantastic vests. Heres a picture:
On a related note i also got one of Tims "anita" pads for handheld shooting: a really cool idea that saves your shoulder alot of discomfort, and very reasonably priced too.
