I'm looking for something to carry my Nox around in and figured might as well get the Minelab Carry Bag.

Do any of you use them? I was unable to find a pic of one open, is the padding decent? I'm sure some of you entrust it on much more expensive detectors than mine.
I was also wondering if there was much room for accessories?
Worth the 70 odd bucks?

I'd be happy to go with a generic one but I just can't find them for sale in Aus. I also looked at rifle cases but some can be expensive.
Although I wonder if I would be best go for something like this. Awesome storage, plus it has back straps on the obverse.

I've got one. It's not overly padded & not a great deal of room in the storage pocket. It seems a tough type of material though.
To be honest I wished I'd stuck with buying Keyboard cases that I've used in the past. The ones I've had have been more padded & have a good sized storage pocket or pockets.
These are the type of bag I'm talking about:

Lots on fleabay too.
Just need to work out what size would best suit you.
The DD Leather bags are also better than the Minelab.


Everything we use comes from mining or farming.

Double D Leather make padded bags with side pocket, different sizes to suit and would prob do a custom.
Located in Bendigo, I have a large and smaller bag for GPX and coils etc and they're great quality.

Cheers mbasko! never in a million years would I have thought of a keyboard case.

The DD Leather look like great quality as well. Will have to toss up between those and the rifle case. thumbsup

i use gun carry case for mine but make sure you try one first they just fit the GM1000 and Garrett the keyboard ones might be a bit bigger

When I need to go for a hike, I put my NoX in the bag I got with my camp folding chair along with my utility belt and shovel. it is not padded but does roll up and gets tucked into the back of my belt when I don’t need it. Looks just like a camp chair too, so have not been dubbed in for carrying a weapon either.

it is a shame the Bathurst race weekend is over, you could have chosen from a hundred different varieties and colours, all for free.

Oh really Wally? They just left them all up there?

I didn't even bother going up for a look.

I am on the lookout ATM for one with the shoulder strap so I can robin-hood style my kit while climbing steeper escarpments. Not having two free hands has been proven to be dangerous. ops Best bags are made for the ‘big boy’ chairs.
