Looking for a carrying case for the Rode Videomic Pro. Something like a small Pelican case. Any ideas?

The original box is huge compared to the mic - lots of wasted packing space. Something like a small Pelican offers better protection and packs much smaller. Or a small dedicated utility bag like the ThinkTank Trim Changer allows you to keep the Videomic Pro in one padded compartment and accessories, like a recorder and other bits in other compartments, and would STILL pack smaller than Rode's OEM box.

Yeah, I know... I already suggested that. I was hoping there would be other alternatives too :)

I agree, the original box is not really a protection because it is just made out of card board. It is way too big as well.

I also use a small pelican and it is the only option I would suggest.
