    Awhile back, Army-Navy surplus stores had an abundance of canvas insulated cooler bags for transporting Jerry can sized water containers for troops on desert maneuvers. These were built like proverbial tanks and the insulation provided thick protective cushioning. They opened and closed via heavy double brass zippers and had shoulder straps---available in any color as long as it was coyote tan. I'd check out Army-Navy Surplus stores in your neighborhood and see if any are still around and if it'll fit your Ansco. I have one for my V8 'dorff and another for film holders
    They've replaced my Ice Chest for car carrying ever since Yosemite Bears have learned to read "Igloo" and "Coleman." Apparently "US" still has them stumped
    These are them:

    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    What do you mean by transport? Walking around with it? You wan to put it in a car or something and then take it out and put on tripod and carry it?

    Transport to me sounds like putting it into something, going somewhere without using it, and then removing it to use. For that I've done different things like a large plastic from Target type thing, and egg foam all around. Now it is in a pelican case and I can throw it in the back of my car.

    The thought of hiking with this behemoth is out of the question. I want to put it in the car, walk a half mile or so and shoot.

    How about this? We've been kicking around these Gator cases on the ULF forum:

    Half a mile is quite a ways to lug a case, or to carry a heavy 8x10 rifle-style, over the shoulder, attached to a tripod. Do you plan on consistently walking on just paved surfaces with it, using a wheeled cart?

    I bungee whatever case to an old-style wheeled golf dolly. Light, compact, breaks down, cheap, good wheels for non-technical or super steep terrain....
    May tomorrow be a better day.
