I've seen some folks say they've found pizza delivery bags to work well... but I haven't tested one out, myself. Anyone seen one in person?

I saw a bag that was discontinued by yimports. I guess it had bad reviews because it has chipped on the finish or whatever. Who knows, maybe we can make a custom bag ourselves with the right materials?

The folding boards and slotted boards are the best for portability. The 6 cm thick boards are really not suited for portable boards, they are too heavy and awkward to carry. If I were to carry one of those boards I'd use an appropriate backpack. It would be possible to protect the board by wrapping it in bubble-wrap or something similar. Using a backpack would give you the possibility of carrying the bowls and stones in it, too.

Great idea. I'll use my small boards for trips and use my big one for house guests! Still I'd like a bag in case I ever move. I don't think a backpack is wide enough for my board. Maybe if I check out an outdoor store like Cabela's or Bass Pro Shop I'll find a big enough bag for that purpose.

It's too bad YMI doesn't sell their nearly indestructible Board and Stone carrying case anymore. I was in Japan when they were carrying them about five years ago otherwise I'd have bought one.

I know that they still have the stone bags. Not for individual sell but with their sets. I love that bag. I'm trying to figure the materials they used for the stone bag and seeing if I can translate it to a board bag.

Start sweet-talking someone with a sewing machine that can handle canvas and heavy-duty webbing straps. Mine can't, so don't look at me, but that way you can specify your own dimensions and separate pockets for go-bowls and other extras, and with suitable padding and decoration if you want to get really fancy (an embroidered tsumego problem on the side?)....

That would be soooo cool. I'm going to see if a close friend of mine might be able to do it for me.

For serious padding to protect a good go board, consider asking the person sewing the case to try pads intended for backpacking (not the self expanding sort, the ones that look like waffled foam --- but these are foams with substantial strength as intedend to survive hard ground). They aren';t very expensive.
