    I was thinking about making my own carrying case (I used to make purses and bags that I sold in various places) and I have a little bag I used for my ipod, but it's occupied! :)

    The problem is, I am so new at vaping, that I haven't yet figured out what the ideal bag would have... ie: how many pockets, for what, zippers, ya-da ya. I know I want something little, so I can toss it in my purse, but I also want it to have a little handle incase I don't want to put it in my purse.

    So lady veteran vapors...

    If you could make the ideal little carry bag, what could you not live without?

    start a business making them and advertise here. more options are needed for portable storage.

    features

    - easy access (velcro or flip top) for fully-assembled e-cigs
    - extra atomizers and full cartridges or cartomizers
    - empty cartridges or cartomizes
    - tweezer, syringe (for those that fill way), and extra 1-2 batteries
    - 1-2 ejuice dropper bottles - 3-10 ml

    if you need anything more than this, use a camera bag or portable diabetes bag. they got lots of pockets and compartments. the goal is for something to throw in a purse or pocket.

    materials

    - nylon canvas, vinyl, leather, velvet, etc.
    - padded, foam, support, or other inserts and liners
    - velcro, zipper, flip-top, open access
    - elastic bands, dividers

    I feel the standard sets maybe can meet the need. But the manufactur still need to develop new product. Waht do you think of it ?

    sets need to meet more flexible storage and easy access for fully assembled e-cigs, with velcro or open access... and need to make better use of the space.

    Henry: yes, I batted the idea around for a few days. But in all honesty, I stink at the business end of things. I am a total artsy kind of gal. That is why I do better selling from little gift shops or randomly. I make one-of-a-kind items with whatever interesting material I can find to use. The last store I sold at would just let me know when she needed more, and I would send them (or special order) Trying to fill the niche (that is obviously needed here) would be a bit daunting to my whismical self.
    However, you have given me some great ideas! TY!

    Key: ah yes! Napkins. I thought about a small pouch for a small cloth, but disposable napkins would probably be more useful..or wipes.

    Jemmy: yes there is a lack for those that want to carry their supplies in something other than a tackle box from Wallyworld. I like the new cases that Vapeboxz has come up with, but I am a purse/bag freak. Also prefer something more unusual.

    Of course it needs to be practical too, and I have yet to discover all the things I will need while out and about.

    leannebug: Have you tried Etsy? Then you could post whatever you felt in the mood to make.

    Yes, I have looked into Etsy. It seems to be a great place (better for handmade items than ebay, certainly) and I have purchased a few items too. Love anything handmade.

    Just still looking for my "niche" I suppose. I do it more as a hobby, and since my art interests are varied, it can sometimes complicate things. (ie: should I make this? should I make that?) lol

    <.......... a bit scatterbrained


    but as to the pouch for supplies, I'm still trying to find out what are the most important featuress. For instance: I was at the grocery the other day (stealth vaping) when suddenly I realized I had juice all over my hand. Now, if I had some napkins or wipes with me, hey no prob, but I didn't... so I had to walk around the store with my hand sticking out, till I could find something to clean up with. These are the things I don't know, will eventually discover, but was hoping to "pick the brains" of those in the know! I like to be prepared!

    Since you're going to be making these one at a time by hand, you may as well custom make them to order. Rather than try to come up with one design to fit everybody (which is impossible), simply list a few sizes and shapes, and then add pouches/loops/holders by request. There are already a lot of "pretty close" options out there, but I think some people would pay a good deal more to get exactly what they want.

    Actually, when I first started vaping, this was the bag that I used. Barre Army/Navy Store Shopping Cart [​IMG] You will have to select tool bags, and it should be the second one.

    You can get them anywhere now, but mine was issued to me. The pockets (total of 8) hold bottles perfectly, the external pockets (enclosed 2), hold PVs, batteries, and atomizers very nicely. This keeps your e-cig supplies away from your cosmetics and what not. I have also found that the various pockets are great out on a camping trip, as the bag stays at a decent enough temperature. Just keep it in the shade, and it stays really cool. Also the bag is washable.

    Cool. Does the website show the inside? I looked at some "coolers/lunchboxes" yesterday at Wally World. Thought about that, but there wasn't anything small enough, that didn't have Spongebob or Batman on it.

    What size is yours?

    I would say that it is about the size of a purse. about 10 inches across by about maybe 5 inches tall?

    Before I caught the mod bug I kept everything in a little hard leather covered glasses case. Now I carry all my accessories in there, and my juicebox in the pocket. Something tells me I don't count though...not a lady vaper.

    The problem I see is for me, in the summer months, I usually wear shorts, shirt and flip-flops...Plus being a guy,,,,,no purse...(My preference, of course - lol) so my pant's pockets are becoming my storage areas...
    No problem so far.....Enjoy

    Diabetic Bags ? Travel Organizer Bag for Diabetics

    The back compartment of this handbag is what is needed for e-cig cases. I have a purse not unlike this one. I had to alter the elastic straps a bit. There are pics of mine fully loaded on my profile. You could do just the pouch with a carry handle or a strap. I love mine. If I am not taking the purse, I just pull the pouch out and go!

    Thanks Raven :)
    You boys count too! ALL input helps... we are a resourceful bunch, aren't we :)

    Thanks for the pics Hz! That is a very cool looking purse! I'm a purse fanatic (hence why I make my own, but I buy a zillion too) Where did you find that one? The only diabetic carry case that I've seen is at Walmart. It was one of those hard sided ones (lockbox)

    I'd like to find a lanyard. I spend alot of time on a lawn tractor or fishing, or out with the dogs. Time without a purse. I've already had the Tornado go off in my pocket and there isn't a good place to put an e-cig on the lawn tractor.
