I did a quick search but didn't find anything on the Café. Does anyone own this? If so, what (or how much) can you carry in it?

Thanks in advance!

Here is a link to it...

A friend of mine has one he uses all the time. He swears by it. I liked it so much, I am ordering one. Well worth the money.

Mine broke before I ever got a chance to use it. The zipper came right off.

It is too small for my liking. Some will like that it is small but I think a small fanny pack is much better. Or, better yet, have a leather guy put belt loops on a small fanny pack and ditch the belt itself.

I think the idea is pretty good but a little bigger would be better so you could put a little more in it.

If all you're wanting to hold is a deck of cards, a packet trick, a few coins, and some business cards, it's fine.

Josh told me he's never heard of a zipper breaking before so who knows.

He did give me a refund without question.

I have such a thing lying permanently in my car. In it are a new deck of cards, four coins plus shell, rubberbands and ult. 3 card monte.
I call it my 911 magic kit.

I personally like using card guards inside a fanny pack, holds everything and the guards keep the cards unwarped!

A body shop toilet bag with 4 zippered compartments that roll out inside the covering case. Each compartment is velcroed to the case and is made of mesh so you can see what's inside... Available from any good BodyShop outlet

Body shop outlet? What is it? I haven't heard of it before. The only body shop I know of is where I get my car fixed. Smile

The Body Shop is a UK chain of toiletries, soaps etc. I don't know if they do mail order/internet sales.

I own one, but don't find it useful. I also own Mark Burger's Kangaroo Pouch...they cost more, but are worth it.

I have it and carry it around all of the time.
In it I have:
-Blank Deck
-NFW
-Back Flip
-Henry Evans rising card gimmick
-Chap stick with fo***d card inside
-Stealth Retractor
-Jumbo coin
-2 Mogar knives and one tiny knife
-Okito Box (filled)
-Fo**ing coin
-Double F***d copper silver coin
-Coin Unique
-Rubber bands
-Ring (string on the back in the belt loops.)
-Mini Sharpie
-A few cards for tearing

It's quite weighty but it closes. My zipper broke (before I had all of that stuff in it) and Joshua Jay said that he would be glad to take it back and send me a new one.
I think it's great.

Here's what I use now:
http://www.theambitiouscard.com/aitem.cfm?itemid=64

Holds a lot. Small. Hides under your suit jacket. Large enough to barely hold ninja rings. Coin slots, etc. Does NOT use a belt loop on back. Uses a clip so you can move it, take it off, etc.

It's a great improvement in prop mgt. for the strolling magician.

Joshua has a nice carrier, I have one and I can carry a few items in it. I'll have to admit thought I can not get as much as "Reuvanes" above post can get into his. I carry a deck of cards a few business cards, bands, coins and a packet trick. These fit comfortably and are easy to get to. For walk around that is all I need.

I have a Pro Carrier, it's not the best - but it's alright.

I can carry a deck of cards, some coins, and maybe a hot-rod. The pockets are good for holding business cards.

I bought it, but now it is already to small for my needs . . .

I bought a Pro Carrier a few years ago. It sits in a drawer and collects dust bunnies.

The leather belt straps are too wide and don't fit my belt properly - stretching took place - it's not pretty.
Think inside the box. . . it's less crowded.

I have one, and find it a little small for my use.

This sums it up well - it is solid but the main drawback is one must open a flap that covers two sides outward to get at anything. It also displays your business card like a badge if not covered by a shirt, particularily troubling with a white business card, I imagine.
