How do you transport your gear?

Post by Dahrken » Mon Feb 20, 2017 5:33 pm

Greetings all,
When I first started my kit build, I noticed everyone in my garrison had the big Husky rolling storage units, so I went ahead and bought one. As I got to the point that I could troop in my TI Reserve kit, I didn't need that big of a kit box, so I used an old suitcase. Now that I've added my hard armor & helmet, I am having to finally upsize and the bin I bought holds everything. The problem is that it will not easily fit into my small car like it did in my wife's SUV. I will most troops be going without her, so I'm having to go back to the drawing board. During my first troop this weekend, I was able to utilize a nice big rolling duffel bag for everything but the helmet. but had to carry the bucket loose. Has anyone found or are already utilizing a helmet bag that they could recommend? Or a different bag that might fit into my Mustang?

Thanks,
Dahrken

This post has information on how people carry their set up. Helm and all the other parts too. I don't have my kit just waiting on the helm and armor. But I wanted to just have the right information before I posted and pointed in the wrong direction. hope it helps :)

I use a Blue Hawk rolling tool bin from Lowes. I think it's a 28 gallon one. It fits everything including my helmet.

I use one of these;

About $20 from Target or Wal-Mart and fits in most cars, if not the trunk then the back seat.

Sadly, that is the case I bought that won't go in the mustang other than in the front passenger seat if nothing else is in the car.

I used to use a rubbermaid bin & loaded it so that my helmet was safely nestled in the middle.
