My fishing glasses by Costa always come in a nice case, they may sell these separately. You could glue Velcro to it and sew a strip on your pack. I have seen some tactical styled cases that take the Alice type clips or have their own straps this would be fool proof almost. Most packs have an accessory strap or one for a water bottle that would be a good place for the case.

I know the military used to have a hard plastic case that clipped onto your web gear. It sat vertically and had a hinged lid. Maybe could find a surplus one.


Its not always easy to do the right thing, But it is always the right thing to do.

As vital as your glasses are, best keep them inside of the pack (and have a spare set, too).

Are you referring to the one that Tactical Tailor makes?

I've worn glasses my whole life, and quit wearing contacts about 5 years ago. I find many of the current hardcases too big. I've been using the semi-hard case from Lowe Alpine for many years now and haven't found anything better. In my cargo pocket, hanging from my belt or shoulder strap, in luggage or carryon, in my jacket pocket while skiing - I've never broken a pair of glasses.
