I'm in the woods a lot and I've always used the hard carry case believing it keeps my total station less susceptible to damage.  I'm having some shoulder issues and thinking about trying a soft back pack.  Do they keep instrument secure?  Are they easier on your back?  What style do you recommend?

The best solution is make a custom soft pack with padding where you can put the whole hard case inside. Worked best for us. I have almost 18 TS and I am from Nepal and you know the difficult terrain. But you have to make a new one often like 3 months or so. But it dosent cost a lot here only about 30$. I have put a sample picture but you can make more improvement.


I really appreciate your suggestion. If it works in your terrain, which I can  see from your profile picture is both beautiful and extremely challenging,  it will definitely work for me.
