I am looking for a bag to carry 2 to 3 external 3.5" hard drives at the same time. Some kind of protection (like padding) is highly appreciated. Anybody any ideas? Thanks :)

I use a pelican case to carry my hard drives that I use for backup. Works a charm.

Thanks for the tip. Haven't thought about those. Which type are you using?

I would second a small pelican case. Don has a pic I believe I have seen him post of his setup, let me see if I can find it before he posts it here.... Thats by far the best option IMO.

Looks good. It would still be helpful to know the type. There are A LOT of different Peli cases to choose from :)

What kind of transport are we envisioning?

I pack my WD MyBook drives in generic WalMart sourced plastic storage containers with the appropriate amount of cushioning.

I much prefer the smaller Passbook models, much easier to transport.

In case somebody else wants to know... Doc's Peli case (in the linked pic) is the 1450 type. I got one myself and it is perfect for storing / carrying 5 to 6 x 3.5" HDD's. Case closed :)

Thank you for this information. I was in need of something for my G-Drives. What type of drives are you using?

I have several 6.2 x 4.9 HDD's, and I'm wondering approximately how many of these that I can fit in that 1450 type Peli with of course the foam dividers...

WD / Lacie 3.5" external drives. Mixed bunch. But sizes are roughly similar around 7.5" x 4.5" x 1.5".

I place the HDD on their sides (like in Doc's pic). The 4.5" is a tight fit. I am not certain if you'll be able to close the 1450 with 4.9". But if you are able, you can fit at least 5 HDD's, possibly even 6 (depending on how you place them). Hope this helps.

BTW The 1450 comes with 'pick and pluck' foam. You can tailor the entire lay-out of the foam to your liking. There aren't any dividers that you can move around like you have in photo bags. Once you have plucked the foam, it is final (unless you want to glue parts together again). There are spare P&P foam sets available though.

Thanks. I'm assuming you now have the Peli 1450...
