Hi Fellow head-fiers
 
Since we pride ourselves to have the best "portable" set ups on the planet or at least for most our aim is simply to create the best sounding portable rig we can buy. I saw a few set ups that stretch the boundaries of the word portable:)  I was therefore wondering what everybody is using to carry their "portable" set up.  
 
So What do we use to carry our stuff to and from work / school or just for fun when shopping. Do you use a back pack, wheelbarrow or just a camera slim case
 
my set up:
 
Rig 1 [size=medium]Type[/size]
Source [size=medium]RH1[/size]
Amp [size=medium]RSA The Shadow[/size]
CEIM [size=medium]Heir 8.a[/size]
Cables [size=medium]Toxic Silver Poison[/size]
Case [size=medium]Obbi custom case[/size]
 
For the above rig / set up I am working with James from Obbigoodlabel to create a custom carry case. We just finished the design phase, so can not show the finished product yet. I would however love to see your set ups to appreciate will I continue my wait for my own carry case.

Indeed I supplied the design and they provided feedback on what was achievable. We worked together over a few days to find a design that would work for me.  The only thing they could not do was locate the hole for the Mini to mini. So I will add that myself.

This looks like most recent thread about solutions for carrying a portable rig, unless I missed another.   I am working with an iPhone6 and a very basic TEAC HA-P50 amp until I can get Chord Mojo. Carrying them as a block with bands in various large pockets leaves the USB-Lightning cable exposed and bent at the bottom of the rig.  Volume control is on top of rig so whole weight of rig is riding up and down on the bent cable.  Secondary issue is rubber bands making it hard to take out of pocket unless wearing hiking pants with big cargo pockets. 
 
It may become a non-issue if I eventually go in DAP direction, but in the meantime direction to any nifty products out there is appreciated.  McClelland
