When I had a GB-2 I carried it in the regular Fisher bag, and just wrapped the box in a little extra padding. I saw a guy at Rye Patch once with a Minelab GP and a GB-2 laying on the open bed of a 1 ton truck barreling down the road over the wash board ruts with the detectors bouncing up and down. No case, no padding, no nothing. Didn't seem bothered about it. (yeah, I know. No brains either?)

I take my detector boxes off the pole and put them in a shoulder bag. I use a little camera bag for the GB2. 

It makes them a lot easier to carry all day. It allows you to just throw the wand and coil on the ground when digging without worrying about the control box. And it keeps dust and dirt out of the box.

After several years of working above and below ground with the GB2 I don't carry it any other way. It eliminated the need for a carry case and protects the control box all the time.

Plus you sometimes want to keep a lower profile in some places, so breaking down your gear and packing it up makes good sense.

I use to use a Snow Board bag, its big, its cheap, has lots of padding, works great big enough to get a Minelab GPX in with extra coils. Grubstake
