    Hi EDCForums,

    Anyone used any pelican/storm cases for sunglasses?

    I am looking for a case that is large enough to carry some sunglasses (2 at a time). On our most recent vacation, I took some for the water and then another set as backup. Thus, I had two cases for the trip. Just looking for options to carry both in the same case.

    Thanks everyone!

    I have been interested in the hard molle mount cases like tactical tailor makes (I have their large version too big for sunglasses IMO) for ease of mounting on bags/packs etc.
    Will probably pick up a pelican micro case for the truck whenever I get around to buying nice glasses...

    I'd get two pelican 1030 cases. They're a lot easier to work into luggage than one larger case. They're also cheap and durable.

    Do they have to be hard or soft cases? Either way I’d look at Oakley cases. Some of their tactical cases easily hold two pairs of shades.

    Thank you everyone for your input.

    @Rdog - I have been looking into those too. Just seems like they may only fit one set though.

    @onebadwagon - thats always an option. presently looking for one case to hold both. can always go for two cases if that doesnt pan out.

    @MCPOWoller - its a personal preference to go hard case. currently, i have a pair of costas (with a soft/somewhat hard case) and then another pair of oakleys (with a softer case with minimal crush protection).

    Ah I am glad this came up, I need a hard case for my Oakleys. I did look in an Oakley outlet, but they were so expensive.

    @Rdog - thanks. That's very similar to my Costa case, so yes, not entirely what j am looking....yet thank you for posting as someone may need the link or be interested in that case in the future.

    HAZARD4 has a hard case for glasses. I have one that rides on a carabiner on my pack.

    I like the Hazard4 case, but it seems to be very similar to the Duluth Trading one linked above. It is very durable though, I have it attached to my bag the same way.

    Look at the S3 T3500 and T4500. I use my T4500 for sunglasses.

    +1 on the Hazard 4 case. On the strength of the posts in this thread I went ahead and ordered one in khaki from Amazon. Very happy with it. I have a pair of Nike that ride in it.

    L'chaim!

    Won't break or crush. Also works great for cigars.

    I wear Costas as well - their case seems pretty solid and durable.

    I'd say probably Pelican 1030, 1040, 1050 or 1060 depending on the size of the glasses when folded up.
