    Default Recommendations on buying a new gear bag....

    alright, so i've recently upgraded my setup from just one AIO controller to a modular setup. and i am in the market for a new back pack, i have been scouring google and amazon for one, but it seems like every bag i see just does not look like it will fit well or protect my stuff... can anyone reccomend a good bag? my requirments are that itt must be small enough so when im flying to another city i shouldn't have to pay extra for it ( basic carry on ) but must be able to fit three controllers and a laptop. .. see picture below

    (btw my stand isnt shown in the picture, but it will be going in the bag as well. its the Hercules laptop stand)

    I'd say your best option is to buy the BIGGEST carry on bag that you can find, then buy some black/grey high density packing foam (like you get in flight cases) and cut it to size so that all your gear is properly protected.

    I suspect you'll need 2 layers of storage, so you'll want 5 layers of foam (2 layers with the cut outs for your gear, and then 3 layers of front/back protection for those layers.

    As long as your 2 layers with the cut outs are thick enough for the gear to sit in comfortably, the 3 "inter-layers" can be made from thinner foam.
