Hiya and welcome into The Hub :thumbsup:

I can sense your excitement to get out detecting just through your words, you will soon be hooked! :ugeek:

I dont think Nokta do a bag as standard for the simplex, so it looks as though you are going to have to improvise
Not sure if a guitar bag would hold it if the machine was collapsed down?

Hopefuly someone sensible comes along with a more efficient solution :lol:

I bought a bag on eBay for my deus from a lady who makes them.Well made and has a pocket on the front for headphones. Not sure what size the simplex collapses down to but if it’s a similar size it might be worth a look.
Search for xp deus bag on eBay, it’s camo and £30 . You could message the lady to see if she could make one to suit if it’s not suitable.

Hello and welcome :thumbsup:

There are two ways you can go on this - a specialised bag or a standard bag you can work with. I've gone the standard bag route, a (new) 15L rucksack I picked up for a tenner which is plenty big enough to stuff my Deus and assorted accoutrements in and with pockets to spare.

Personally, I'd rather spend my hard-earned on good equipment rather than something to tote it about in, but each to their own :thumbsup:

Not sure how short your machine will retract when not in use, I use a tennis racket bag for my detector and all the bits and pieces, might be an alternative
Bought it from sports direct for £15 some while ago

It is quite usual to just remove the lower stem for a smaller flatter package that will fit into a backpack. Though it will likely fit a full size detector bag. Best to just measure it and find a bag of suitable size. :thumbsup:

Quite agree with the Steve and Easy above. I used to fly and if you stuck "aero" in front of anything (such as engine oil) the price quadrupled and I think detecting is going much the same way with regards accessories. Some are brand fanbois and must have the "proper" gear and others make do.

All that matters at the end of the day is getting coil to soil and how you transport it there is up to you :thumbsup:
