I'm looking for a case that I could keep and/or transport my Helmet + PVS-14 in.



I've got the lanyard on the PVS-14, so would prefer to just leave it all attached and have a case that would fit this nicely and protect it during transport. I was thinking about a Pelican case, but would be interested to know what you guys might recommend.

Thanks in advance-

Shawn

I have not considered doing something like that, but I like the idea. Pelican of the required size would be my choice with pluck foam.

leaving the 14 attached for storage ad transport will mean you need a pretty large pelican case. I would personally get a small pelican case just for your nods, and then get a CVC bag for your helmet and stuff the nods in a pelican case in with it.

Old samsonite luggage at goodwill. $3. It doesn't scream "expensive stuff" like a pelican.

I use these for my NODs. US Palms NODS Garage. Stores the goggles protected by the helmet and then I use a soft bag for the helmet combination.

Really well built. I like them so much I bought 2.

I have a setup like that using a Pelican 1600. I like it, it's kinda heavy and big, but it's great for transporting all of you NV gear. It holds all of the stuff I have and has plenty of room for more, I already have a place picked out for my future thermal scope.




I also replaced the foam in the lid with this storage piece that can hold all of your other smaller accessories like batteries, mounts, lenses, etc.

I have several Pelican cases. For the most part, I find myself never using the big ones like 1750, 1600, etc. I use a 1450 and it holds two PVS14s and one magnifier. My helmet goes in a nice motorcycle helmet bag and most of the time when I'm actually using the stuff, the 14 is in a blade tech case inside the helmet in the soft helmet bag. I keep buying big Pelicans and then getting real tired of using them. If I had a big SUV or something with a trunk, I could see using them more. Now if I were flying into bush country, eh, maybe. Driving 20 miles to a farm to shoot pigs? They might be in the 1450.

But, the thermal gets its own 1400-sized SKB case that it came in.

To each his own, but the bigger the case, the bigger the PITA they are in my experience. I've got a spare closet that has 3 or 4 1750 rifle cases with custom foam. Don't think a rifle has been in any of them in the last 2 years.

On the lanyard- I replaced the clip that it came with it with a nice McGizmo stainless clip (extremely high quality) clip that makes the hook up or unhook process a lot easier. Glad I did it.
