    Ghost Whale as glasses case?

    I'm interested in using a TB accessory with o-rings as a glasses case so I can hook it into the system when running around time. Is the Ghost Whale soft on the inside? What would be the right accessory to use for glasses?

    I have a few of the Small size to use for my sunglasses. There's no padding or cushioning. in a Ghost whale, and the fabric isn't particularly soft (nor particularly hard), but I've been happy with mine!

      ​My sunglasses came with a soft bag, so they go in the soft bag first, then in a small Ghost Whale.

      Everyday carry (2 mile walk to work) is an SG23. Fantastic bag.

        Interesting, I wonder, does TB sell a clip or o-ring that one might superglue onto an existing case?

          As someone who uses prescription glasses and sunglasses, I prefer to have a hard case to protect the large investment I make an eye glasses. The Whale Ghost pouches do not provide any protection other than from possibly scratches but that’s it.

            I slip my regular glasses cases into Small GWOPs, Coyote Mesh. Sure, that gives me two cases, but it allows me to clip them onto O-Rings. The Coyote Mesh has a bit of give in it, so it stretches enough to completely zip closed.

              I keep 5 pairs of Rx glasses (mix of sun & reading glasses) in GWOPs in my LGD - no, it's probably not the most delicate solution, and if the bag gets crushed so do the glasses, but I'm pretty careful where I put the LGD so overall I"m not too worried. No problems over the last month+

                I would only use the small GWOP if my hard glasses case fit inside. I like the Maui Jim sunglasses cases since they come with a snaphook attached to them, which integrates nicely with the TB o-ring system
