Title: How do you store yours? My Jaguar
Post by: Cryptic33 on November 30, 2017, 14:01:05 PM
Hi everyone,

I have just this minute made my second video with iMovie about how I protect my Jaguar.

I hope you enjoy the video and feel free to ask questions.

Very nice! :)
Thanks, I made a bad spelling mistake but hey ho 😂

I like to experiment, but in this case it is how I carry my Jag around and it fits just right.

Great idea and a sure way to protect it long term mate.

Very nice way of storing the system.  I keep mine in a plastic container as well with some silica to remove humidity as well.  I also have mine covered with a leather...well, cover.  :)

I used to keep mine in a laptop slip (black with red trim of course) for years, but I had this idea for a long time and one day took my notes with me to check the dimensions and decided I could make this work. I’m guessing you have one of those purpose made covers with the logo stitched in to it. They are nice but expensive, I feel.


I keep mine in the original box. I did the same for years, bit of a pain if you want to set it up though given how fragile the insert is. Now you have a possible alternative 😉 then you can place the box on display 🙂

Yes, it is one of those leather covers with the console logo. :)

Nice, I do like the look of them but I haven’t seen any pictures of them on the console. Do you have any pics perhaps? I always wondered about the CD cover, does it only cover the upper CD unit? Do you see where I am coming from 🙂

I have pics for all the consoles in my collection thread.  Not sure if I have one for the Jaguar with the CD unit on it.  If there is no picture of it, I can certainly take one.

Thanks, I’ll check it out when you have chance.

Just saw the video and have to say, very nice 8)
I'll have to dig something similar up and preserve mine the same way. Right now, one unit with CD attachment is in a Jaguar rental case (awesome) with 2 controllers, a Scatbox and Battlesphere Gold. 2 PSUs and a set of composite cables as well. Couldn't believe it all fit.
The 7 other units are either in shipping boxes or igloo coolers. The one unit I use is covered with the leather logo cover. I had the presence of mind to order a ton of covers in case the people stopped making them and it was a great call.... since they did :(

If I can find these containers I'm going all in. Thanks for sharing this cool idea 8)

I'm sure I've seen those covers with logos, or some like it on etsy.

Thanks for your comments Saturn. I used an 18litre Really Useful Box, they are available online, though one box would cost too much in postage, and can be found in various outlets. Here in the UK, Staples have a good stock but you may also get one from The Range.

I’ve seen them still on eBay but I never ordered one.
