I've got a couple of CPL filters from B+W. The soft plastic boxes they arrived in seem so vulnerable in my heavy camera bag.
The surface of these boxes bends inwards too easily. :/

Where can I find some proper hardcases for my filters? Something like this:

While not exactly what you requested, I find these compact & effective for all my B+W filters
[ND, CPL & UV(for harsh environments)]…

How many filters are you carrying? Rather than hard cases, I use a Tamrac filter pouch and put it in one of my lens slots inside my bag; or it can just as easily be strapped to the outside of the camera bag. I find this to be much easier.

Thank you. Both looks great, but the one Mary suggested is just what I needed. :)

Cheers!

FYI - The link in my original entry has been revised/edited.
(was: incorrectly link to used dept; now: corrected with link to new dept)
sorry for any confusion.

Also-
If you need 82mm stacker cap,
(I could never find them listed on B&H Photo web site); however, I did purchase the 82mm at Adorama:
http://www.adorama.com​/PROCLS82.html?discont​inued=t (external link)
but now see Adorama no longer carry this - perhaps another POTN person can suggest a source for an 82mm.

I use the Tiffen version of those pouches. I have two, the large one for my 77mm filters, and the small one for my 58mm filters. That setup works great for me.

I've always wondered - are the inside dividers a safe material for filters? What happens if the pouch gets squeezed - do the inside dividers push on the filter glass?

I use the plastic hard cases for my circular filters and my Singh-Ray filters are in their own individual soft pouch, seems to work very well.

All the exterior walls and internal dividers are padded. When installed, each filter is sandwiched between padded layers on all sides. I just tried squeezing, and you'd have to squeeze pretty darn hard before anything got damaged.

Things inside my bag does get squeezed pretty darn hard some times. Especially when I'm traveling with full gear. Hence why I asked for hard cases like the picture I posted. :)

Yep, makes sense. The hard cases seem best for you. I don't pack my gear that tightly, so that kind of damage is less likely for me.

I use this same Tamarac pouch and couldn't be happier with it. I've looked at some others (Tiffen, ect) that don't look like they protect as well. I carry three 77mm filters (CPL, 3 and 8 stop NDs). All three fit nicely in the pouch along with three stepping rings which makes a nice, compact kit that goes on my belt when I work. Never in the way and always available. It's hard to beat.

The pouch has five available slots so you could pack your filters in middle slots and use the outside ones for step rings or just extra security. It's pretty thickly padded. I would think that if it didn't provide enough protection, you've got a bigger problem than finding a hard case.

I have 4 rectangular neutral graduated filters, one polarising filter and 2 filter holders. So need a bag with slightly more options than the ones shown here.

Does such a bag exist, or am I hoping for the moon?

I use both a pouch and stacker. Each has it's place, but I only carry round filters.
