This is an expensive chunk of hardwear and I was wondering how many board members had taken the plunge on this purchase? Also what are you all carrying these things in if your not using them? I saw a small molded plastic case for the 14 but alas I have lost the link for them. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Don't have the PVS-14 (yet) but Tactical Tailor makes a plastic hard case.

I may be mistaken, but, I think the hardcase @ Lightfighter is from Blade Tech. I do know Blade Tech makes a PVS14 case that looks exactly like the one on Lightfighter's website:

I have one (PVS-14)....

Just keep it in an outer pocket on a small backpack, with the demnist cover on the lens, they are pretty durable.

Me me me me! Oh wait, I bought it from you, hehe.
It stays on the rifle, and goes into the case with it. Was thinking about getting the Tactical Taylor one, but the case you gave me works just fine.

The BladeTech pouch is the heat. Best hard case on the market for the 14, without a doubt.

Ive got one, I just keep it in the bag it came in. I figure I used one of those bag for years in the Marines for PVS7bs it will work for me in real life for my PVS14.

... Interesting post. On a somewhat related issue; I never have liked packing my AN/PVS-7B on trips. Seemed too susceptible to damage. I’ve decided to buy the right-sized Pelican® case and custom cut foam inserts for the goggles and accessories. Rigid, hermetically sealed, waterproof and a lot cheaper than replacing a tube.

Litton PVS14 Delta spec.

It comes with a factory nylon soft case but I store it in a custom fit Pelican 1200 case with other related gadgets together.

Factory hard case is nice also. It is made by SKB Corporation:

I've been running a PVS 14 for some time now. I use it head, helmet, and weapon mounted with good success.

A small pelican case protects it from damage in the cab of the truck generally.

With all these attempts to replace the PVS 14 coming down the pike I think I am going to Stick with the 14 as a primary monocular platform. I have been wanting a pair of 7B/Ds for general viewing but have not been able to scrape up enough working parts. I am now going to turn my attention to building a set of the dual tube ANVIS googles. Don't get me wrong I think the 14 is truly the cats MEOW in night vision. The MUM mentioned above is even better albeit way out of my budget at the moment but it is even better than a 14. I went form using a PVS 4 to a PVS 14 and and Aimpoint / ACOG and I can't be happier. However I want something I can look through with both eyes for extended periods of time and I think a set of ANVIS googles might be the ticket.
