    After market case for light and battery?

    Does anyone know of a good protective bag or case to store and carry a bike light and battery? Is such a thing made? I know some lights (such as Gemini) come with one, but many don't. Or maybe there's something made and sold for another purpose that would work. Any ideas out there? What's everyone else using?

    I think I picked mine up at Academy Sports, but any place with a fishing tackle section ought to carry them. I paid around $5.00 USD for it.
    I like that the hook hangers let you hang your wires in them to keep things sorted.

    Here with some MagicShine batteries and light head to give everyone an idea of size.
    The compartments are deep enough to put two round metal canister batteries in on top on each other.

    That's the perfect thing! Great idea -- and cheap! Thanks for the pics, too.

    Google "blow molded cases" Gun guys get a premium for their cases.

    I second Bullcrew's video/camera bag/case idea, there lot's of choices out there and are relatively cheap. I personally have a Pelican case that I use for traveling with lights, not cheap, but they are super burly.

    Yeah...$10 for a Doskocil single scoped pistol case with foam included is outrageous.

    I like the camera bag idea too. In fact I dug around and found an old SLR camera that I'll probably never use again in a nice camera case. I stuck the camera in a box and repurposed the bag for my light kit. So now I'm set. Thanks everyone for the great ideas...
