Belt clip bag (?) to carry rig around while using it?? - Page 2

post #16 of 83
For my portable rig i bought a matias armour clip and attached it to my go vibe 3 so i dont have a bulky bag on my side.

I picked up the Crumpler Bundle (L). May be a little too large for some folks but I like the size. It will hold all I need.

Being a camera buff myself, I've always had spare 'pocket camera' bags lying around. One of them has always worked out for whatever rig I'm using portably at the time. They're durable and you can generally pick up a cheap one in the camera store (or even some Tandy) bargain bins.

I really like the looks of these but would like to be able to find a detachable belt clip to add to it instead of the malice clips.

Good price but lack of belt clip I'll keep searching for a belt clip that would work with this.

More great ideas here. If the Crumpler bag doesn't work out, I will try one of the other suggestions you folks have posted about. No shipping info from Crumpler as yet but I am hoping it will arrive this week. I'll have my RSA amp and v-moda Vibes by Tuesday, so, except for the carrying bag - and a protective case for my Nano - I am going to be all set.

I ordered the M2 today...

It's small but may also hold my cell phone and pager and a couple pens...







I'll post some pics when I get it.

The M2 looks quite nice, ALBPM. What did you decide about the belt clip?

My Crumpler bag is supposed to be delivered Friday. I received my Hornet yesterday; it is a lot smaller than I expected! It looks very nice with my Nano. Still waiting for my IEMs to arrive so I can actually hear what everything sounds like.

For now I'll just use the malice clips (bottom pic) and slide my belt through them.

May be able to use one of those universal cell phone belt clip replacements and attach the tab to one of the composit malice clips.

Sounds as if you are set then, ALBPM. Please let us know how it works out - a picture of your set up would be nice, too.

I received the Crumpler Winkler today - and it is TOO SMALL! It looks really nice and is very well built, but it is apparently only made to carry the MP3 player itself, there is no way to fit an amp in there as well. I am very disappointed. I obviously should have looked at the measurements a bit more closely.

Back to the drawing board.... I will look into the Bundle, I guess, since I am impressed with the build quality & appearance of Crumpler bags.

And here I thought I was all set. Sigh.

Can you take some size comparison pics of it?

I've been looking for some sort of small gear bag thing to put the ipod and Hornet in my coat pocket whenever I'm using a backpack. It's a tall order, because if a camera case is big enough, it's too big to fit in a pocket. And if it's small enough to fit the ipod, amp and pocket, it'll be too small to fit the very flexible and smallish cryodock. You'd someone would make a bag that would suit this purpose.

So, while I wait for someone at Headroom to redesign some bags, I'll give the Vaja pouch a try and see how that goes. The leather is thick, the inside is lined, the drawstring stays shut and it doesn't look too big or too small. I think it's worth having a go, since my Longchamp purse has enough pockets to not need any extra pouches or gear bags.

I got the M2 tonight!!!

Lots of room and potential for a small to medium sized bag.


Stuffed with player, amp and cell phone in front pocket. It would
easily hold a DAC along with the player and Amp.


Here's the front view. With cell in front pocket.


5.5" to 6" tall.


3" thick with cell in the front pocket.


Just under 3" wide.


It has a wide belt loop in the back, You don't need the small malice clips
to put it on a belt.

Not bad for $25.99 plus shipping.

That's what I thought, their bags used to just be unlined simple leather pouches, but it looks like they've taken it up a notch. I've placed my order for just a default black one, so it should be here within the week. I'll see how it does.

I wanted to get a darker brown, to match my purse, but there's no point. I'm not using it with my purse, I'm using it with a STM Small Loop bag. Oops, looks like I got the last small. Anyway, imagine a backpack formed for the Macbook form factor.

Thanks for the real-life pics ALBPM! My husband might could use that for his iPaq hx4700, Samsung i320, and Qtek 8310. Why two smartphones? To make landscape and portrait homescreens and skins of course.
