PVC Carrying Bag Answered

I've been trying to find a bag to easily transport a project made out of PVC after it's be disassembled. The longest piece is 5ft. My first thought was one of the bags used for the colorguard flags, but those don't fit a whole lot. There has to be someone on here that's run into this problem before. Maybe someone has figured out a good way to carry PVC that isn't a bag? Any ideas?

Bingo! This is exactly what I need, and I found one for ~$20. Perfect! Thank you!

All these other ideas are fantastic too, but a reusable bag is perfect.

I've seen fine woodworkers carry their works in progress by tying one end of a strap at one end of the bundle, the other end of the strap at the other end of the bundle, thus forming a shoulder strap. this might be used for any number of sticks of wood.

sounds to me like you need to hit up the army surplus for a large duffle bag.

If it's all long pieces, why not use bungees to hold them together?

Bungees are definitely an option, but a bag would be more convenient if I can find/make one easily. I'm imagining a long bag that all of the piece can be tossed into and then swung over the shoulder. Bungees would certainly be better than what we do now (one person tries to carry 10-15 pieces of PVC that aren't tied together).

If you're after an actual bag, it should be fairly easy to cut a rectangle of fabric, sew two edges to make a tube, cut a disc to fill one end in, and add a draw-string to the other.

Add a shoulder-strap, and you're away.

it's probably going to be easier to add shoulder strap before sewing up edges to make the tube.

Interesting! This looks like it might be something that works for me, thanks!

Because they are made for spearfishing they are made very durable, we have had ours for years and we got it second hand!

Depending on how often you need to travel, why not just wrap it with "stretch wrap"? Anywhere they have moving supplies, office supplies, buy a roll of the stuff that is like a thinner plastic sandwich wrap. You can bundle up odd shapes with a couple of wraps. Peel or cut off the wrap when ready to use. You can even loop extra to make carrying handles or pulls.
