Weapons bag recommendation?

Hello,

Does anyone have a recommendation for a weapons bag that can carry a bokken, jo, and iaito?

Re: Weapons bag recommendation?

If you need luggage style heavy duty with padding, good zippers, etc, - which most folks with iaito do prefer for obvious reasons! - not sure your best bet these days (used to be Bujin Design but not sure if they are still doing them)
If you want a cotton canvas open at the top, foldover design for just carrying back and forth to the dojo, I do custom work - https://www.zanshinart.com/

Yeah I was hoping to find something padded for all three. It looks like Bujin is doing the silk route as well. You do have some nice designs though. I will bookmark for when my current bags eventually break.

If I come across a really good padded one I'll post a link! Oh, you might check Mugendo Mudogu and Budo Nevada Tailoring....

One of my old instructors made a new dojo maybe 30 years back and used canvas cover on gym style sponge mats (common in the UK). He made a few weapons bags from leftover canvas. Still have mine - it is as good as the day I got it.

Re: Weapons bag recommendation?

when it comes to Iaito and air travel, I find hard shell gun cases with egg foam inside by Flambeau work great. Pretty inexpensive, $20 to $30 and have been sturdy. Also faily light weight.

Room enought for two iaito or an iaito plus a bokken plus a shoto.

This looks like or may be the same model as I picked up at a local sports store.

I always start with, "It's not a gun. Sporting goods, no moving parts."

if it's for aikido and need to carry a jo, this is too short. But then when traveling, I can often borrow a jo locally.
