    I put one in a small thin light weight zippered nylon bag like you use for travel or backpacking (opaque enough to tell whats inside), but this was more for storage in a trauma kit, not everyday use. I think they were made by Eagle Creek

    Perhaps your father lost a cat inside the walls of your house..... that's why I ended up getting a stethoscope. :blink:

    I carry mine in the hydration compartment of my Rush 12 along with a spare work shirt. That gives it a decent amount of protection.

    Seriously, I actually lol'd. How does that happen, and how does that get resolved?
    Holy :censored:! I didn't even know those existed!
    LC3 also. I do the same thing, just inside my bag. But if you wanted something, a pencil bag from one of the big stores would work just fine to keep it from being floppy all over the inside of your bag.

    MAXPED fatty (or..beefy?). Holds my scope (Littman Cardio), shears, penlight, notebook, pen, and a few other items. It does not need a home though, I just like to keep everything together so I dont loose :censored:; it has lasted over a decade of hard urban abuse

    The maxped organizers are my modular system for my bags. Have custom patches made for them with the contents or module name. I add paracord to handles to identify from the top as well.

    - EMS
    - Electronics
    - Boo-boo (minor medical), Meds
    - SERE
    - Gym (single-dose supps, wrist wraps, spare head phones)
    - Tools
    - Admin
    - DOPP (toiletries for overnight trip)

    I have seen a number of ambulances with those stethoscope clips clipped to the net 'medic-catcher' on the end of the bench seat. Never have I seen a paramedic with one attached to their person once they hit the field, lots of them in school however....

    I sling mine on my neck from the house to the car then throw it in there and then back on my neck to the truck. You can toss them around and be rough on them and they will be fine, if they were fragile we wouldn't use them in EMS lol.

    Here are a few pics of where I carry my stethoscope when I am at the fire department. The bag is a G2 Kifaru bag.

    At the rear of the bag is an outside pocket to put things in. It is the perfect spot for my stethoscope.
    [​IMG]
    As you can see is sits completely inside the outside compartment.

    This is inside the front compartment which holds my SCBA mask, 2in tape. Oakley safety glasses, and extrication gloves.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

    I keep mine in my BP kit, but I like the pencil case idea.
