We have a hard plastic tub. I think it's protects the back wing and the antenna, and you don't have to worry about something getting set down on top of it.

And, it's easy to drop in belt, holster, blaster, and odd and ends and slide it into the back set of the car.

We also use a hard plastic storage box that we got at the local craft/fabric store, we also slip the helmet inside of an old t-shirt that way if there is anything else in the bin we don't have to worry about scratches. Smile
