    Some ideas that have crossed my mind:

    Put your mod and juice inside an oven glove - one with a thumb. Mod goes in the hand section and juice in the thumb.

    Roll your mod in bubblewrap.

    Put your mod and juice in ziplock bags - separate bags for each mod and each juice, so if there's a leak it won't cross-contaminate.

    @Rob Fisher What on earth is a Desce bag? It must be good if you use it, so where do you buy it?

    They are little bags made from wetsuit type of material so they protect the mods and tanks stored in them as well as being waterproof. Unfortunately no vendors stock them in SA yet and I picked up most of mine at the Paris Show.

    I'm sure you could use any neoprene cellphone pouch with the same effect. Or a small Lowepro camera bag.

    Or ... will vaping issue in the return of the moonbag?!?!?!

    Ive been using a LowePro camera bag
    A medium sized one
    The reason i like it is i can fit 5/6 mods very comfortably in it - and they all stand upright
    Its ideal for going out for the day to friends or for a lunch etc

    But

    Its not ideal for vapemeets or VapeCon etc, where one needs one's hands free and its a hassle carrying a bag around the shoulder.

    I think the idea of a moonbag sort of arrangement around the waist would be ideal -
    Need to investigate this further but havent had the time

    @Blends Of Distinction , hows your moonbag contraption? Are you still using it?

    My ideal setup would be to carry 2/3 mods that wont fall out but are easy to access. Stand upright. And space for one or two batteries and little juice bottles.

    Lowepros are brilliant. There is a little pocket for an extra battery as well.

    @Mac75 , thats great
    I never thought of the small ones
    Maybe two or three of those, dont they have belt nooses?
    Hmm...

    But i dont like the ones with zips, they must have velcro flaps for easier access, to take it out and put it back in

    The small ones are perfect for BB’s and similar sized mods including attys. They do have a belt noose though I have never used it except for when cellphones first came out with belt cases lol. The zipper is ok - i us the noose as a finger latch when walking or moving around.

    The protection is great if it finds its way to the floor!

    When I ordered my vape gear I thought about carrying this stuff to work every day so I picked up the following:

    2 cell 18650 Molle pouch:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/SIV...-dbe5-417d-a7e6-a3acb7a2e41b&rmStoreLevelAB=5

    Molle 5.7" phone pouch as I reckon the size would be the same as the mod and tanks I ordered:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/100...32762675739.html?spm=2114.13010708.0.0.QnVPD4

    Molle bag strap replacement with extra pockets:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Hun...32806993602.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.qa9roM

    Also ordered a Nitecore NBM40 carrier for 4x 18650.

    Those Molle items should go onto the Molle-compatible shoulder bag I ordered to carry daily stuff to the office rather than me trying to hand-carry everything and a cup of coffee out of the car every morning. Not exactly out-and-about stuff, but it seems like something with Molle options would be good for expansion.

    It should be great ... if it ever arrives!!!!1

    @SinnerG I often use a moonbag (but slung over my shoulder) but still wrap everything in bubblewrap

    @Rob Fisher When I first saw your photo above - and now again - what catches my eye is the red on the right side of your mod. And it looks like a packet of goulash/stewing steak.
    It's only when taking in the whole pic does one realise what it is!

    I don't know if I'd feel comfortable carrying a bag with me wherever I go. I mean, this is my wallet:

    [​IMG]

    Too many cards in there as it is.

    Then again, I smoke rollies and right now I stuff my pockets with a 50g bag of tobacco, a full-size roller, bag of filters and paper.

    I just looked at www.vapesox.com. They look alright, but don't cover the atomiser.

    Hi ho silver

    I love my bag bought it at a travel shop.
    Was a bit pricey but so worth it
    It’s made from non tear parachute material and is fully waterproof both inside and out and is a light sling bag. Also fully machine washable

    It has 4 spectate compartments.
    The back Zip up one I use for documents and paper, next one use for all my personal stuff, cellphone, wallet and glasses.
    Next one is Vape section. This one can easily carry 4 mods, Each in their own compartment. Also can simultaneously fit up to 4 100mls juice bottles or upto 8 30ml juice bottles. There is also little spectate pockets and sleeves in there for spare atties, cotton and wire etc

    Front Compartment I use for batteries

    Wife calls it my “manbag”. Wherever I go it goes
    As you can see from pics it’s also not to big and bulky
