Storing and Transporting Armour

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I’m a newly minted TK. Just wondering what people find best for storing their armour (when not in use) and transporting it to/from troops. 

 

Assume a motorbike helmet case would be good for the lid?? Any ideas for the rest? Thinking something with wheels would be easiest.

 

any thoughts/comments/ideas welcome.

I use a suitcase you stack parts inside parts but I do have a seperate helmet bag. Basically it like a bowling ball bag with my TK ID stitched into it and FISD shield patches and rank patches added.

Same as Andrew, suitcase and helmet bag, works well.

I use a Stanley 50gal job site box because I am too lazy to take the armour apart.  It's brilliant but huge.  Helmet goes in a motor bike bag just because I want to make sure it's not sat being squashed for any period of time, though it once took a hit in that bag....

 

Some people use a smaller 120L (about 70L less than the big ones) boxes.  I used to but just found the fit a bit more of a faff so got a bigger one.

 

Some use a large suitcase.  I need to get one as for some troops the big Stanley is just too big and heavy to get on things like the Tube.

Couldnt find a 150L toolbox in New Zealand. Have bought a cricket bag with wheels. Separate compartment for the helmet and the armour fits perfectly.
