We have plenty of topics about the latest guitars, amps and effects, but what does everyone actually use to store their leads, pedals, picks and various other accessories? I've got a silver flight case which sort of does the job, but I'm looking for something new and wondering what to go for.

When I go on gigs I usually carry a backpack with cables and all the necessary stuff. But make sure the backpack is sturdy enough, cause light ones could tear apart. For pedals I have a Boss BCB60 pedalboard to keep the pedals, like this:



For the amp, I plan to get a cover like this


But for long travels the safest thing is a flight case like this:


There are many available flight cases, so you can choose whatever you need. They are pricey, but well worth it if you have a lot of quality gear that needs to travel long routes.

I use Boss pedalboard BC-60 for my pedals , ac adapter and 2 cables..My bass is in a hard case.Other stuff like spare clothes , more cables , picks etc is stored in my backpack..I always travel to gigs by bus or car..I can't imagine traveling without a hard case and sturdy pedalboard...What exactly equipment do you want to carry with you (there are special cases for almost everything - like for rack gear , amps etc..)...If you travel by airplane I recommend flightcases because they are specifically designed with that mode of transportation on mind..
