I just got the Sachtler arm soft bag, its just like Tiffen, but Sachtler.

The Price for me was 170.00 USD. But maby you can get better price...

Anyway the soft bag for my arm is the way to go.. easy and well done, very good quality.

Regards Johan.

Gents--

I have upgraded my arm bag recently to a product from Black Diamond. These folks make some outstanding climbing and expedition items.

The one I chose is a climbing rope bag. I added a piece of closed-cell foam to protect the arm inside the bag. I also store my custom arm weather cover inside this bag.

The bag opens along a lengthwise seam with a large and durable YKK zipper which makes removal and insertion a breeze. This style of operation also prevents "helpers" from dropping the arm into a big and potentially dropping the whole deal onto the floor.

Here is a the bag:


I purchased this item from Mountain Gear which is based in Washington state. Cost was some US$38. plus shipping.

I heartily recommend it.

Best,

Brant S. Fagan, SOC

Alec/Brant thanks!!!

Brant, this closed foam you mentioned, can this be sourced locally? yeah i dont like the drop down in to the bag type opening on another case i saw/used.... :huh:

Alec, modular 51 has some exciting products. i spoke with a sales guy there and they would have to make these on demand. i kinda need a bag like in the next week! :-) Brants idea is sound and price cant be beat.

thx guys i appreeciate the input.
