How do you store yours? I have one mini, an AC3 and 3 flex units. I love them but finding a good storage solution has been a challenge. I'd like something as compact as possible, but it needs to give some protection. Right now I just have them in one of the compartments of my ThinkTank Airport Security 2.0 bag and move them to other TT bags, as needed. Would like to find something to put them in that I can swap between bags and keep them protected.

I have this box, made by dolfinbox, and sold by anaconda in Australia as Seak brand
It only carries a mini and 2 flexes though

Pocket wizard sticker was added by me, it's NOT an official PW product

It required some modification of the foam inside so it didn't crush the hotshoes, and they now fit perfectly
It also holds a spare mini battery and a iPad CCK

Since I can't see a location in your profile.
Got a Container Store nearby?
Tons of things in all sizes.
Very easy to add adhesive backed foam to ones
slightly larger than the items to be stored.

Check it out.
