I found some K&R pouches at Sears and OSH.
I assumed that since Kmart owns Sears they'd be the same ones.

Just out of curiosity, does it have a main pocket suitable for 2 decks, a secondary pocket that could hold 1 deck, an elastic pocket that could hold a TT and a pen loop? All nylon, with a velcro closure?
Think inside the box. . . it's less crowded.

Ah, I see you didn't opt for the combination trash-compactor/margarita maker attatchment. Oh well, do what you can with what you have I suppose Smile

Surely it all comes down to personal preference. Before I got an Assassin's Pouch I always wore a bumbag (I'm British ok, no idea of the US translation) which carried everything. In fact so much that I struggled to find things quickly in restaurants. Now I've got the smaller assassin's pouch I think much more about what to take. And if I need more I improvise. But how amny tricks do you need.

I have one with two sharpie pockets and have had no problems so far. So I guess this is the later model, purchased last August from Davenports of London. I did look at lots of other options including camera bags, pouches etc but they did not hold the things that I wanted, and yes I like the TT holder.

So as I started it is personal preference.

I saw Sankeys pouch and my first thought was....I can make this.

I went to Wal-Mart and bought a camera case utilizing that with some 2 inch nylon straps (the kind that the non leather guitar straps are made of) I was able to make a really nice walk around pouch. I put a TT holder on the side and a sharpie holder on the other. The front came with a zipper pocket that I put some hankies in. Flip that up and I stitched on two pieces of nylon that holds four coins and another strip that holds my hopping half set. It works great, and theirs still room for 2 decks, rubberbands, spongeballs, etc. All in all it cost me 10 bucks to make, and a little time with a needle and thread.

Then here is a general view of what I can fit inside. There is even a little more space for any extra gimmicks you wanna carry. Sankey talks about putting a magnet in his. Well I tested mine out, and the bottom "shelf" is a perfect thickness for a one coin magnetic load. For me this works perfect and I could easily do 30 minutes with this case. Let me kno what you guys think

Not exactly. K-Mart and Sears are supposedly equal partners in their corporate merger.

So, instead of two has-been retail giants that are losing money hand over fist, there is one very large one. Smooth move!

Great Job Josh
I was in a dollar store around my area (wpg. Mb, Canada)
and saw a cd player carring case for a $1.97
I don't do much walk around magic gig's, but I work in a school
and carry it around and show the kids tricks
"i guess, I can say I do walk around magic."
I carry about the same amount of stuff you show in your pictures.

I tried to attach a picture but it said it's to big
Thanks'

Very nice Josh.
Is that a Samsonite "Journey" being used as the base?

I ran down to Wal-mart yesterday to see for myself. I believe what you've got there is the Samsonite "Journey" Large.

It comes in three sizes, Small can hold a single deck, Medium can hold a deck and business cards, and the large can hold 2 decks - main compartment.

Then in that case, I definitely believe you are right. I large as I can keep two decks.

I tell ya though, as you saw by the price of just the case. The whole thing is a steal when you put the little time, and stitching in needed to make it a real worker. I keep all the stuff I use on a pretty regular basis whether for practice or performing in there. It's really great.
