Low cost carry bag for Elecraft KX3

The KX3's front face controls makes it vulnerable to damage when being carried with other items. In the past I've put it in a solid case but it's rather large. This week I found a camera bag for $20 that fits it very well. It's a Manfrotto shoulder bag, Amica 25W.

Pockets on the side can carry mic and a small end fed antenna.

It's a snug fit and won't allow operation while inside the bag.

I've been using 3S LiPo batteries from a quadcopter and one of these might almost fit in a side pocket.

These bags are $20 at Fletchers Fotographics in Chatswood. The price seems better than online so perhaps they're running down the stock.
