I have a black bag with handles--works great. Have to put the lid in the bottom of the bag first, so the feet of the DO don't poke through the fabric. Then set the DO in on top of the lid.

Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/Lodge-Camp-12-Inch-Dutch-Oven/dp/B0008G2W0M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1332724952&sr=8-1

This one isn't padded, but I don't think the padding is all that necessary. Cost is $21.39. It keeps the mess contained until you can get home and do a thorough cleaning. I've run the bag through the wash, too.

There was a Sportsman's near my house in TX. Got all the Lodge camp ovens from 16in to 6in in regular and deep (except for the 16in) and the padded cases for them. I got things a piece at a time until I amassed my collection, it didn't hurt as much that way. Was browsing a store recently and it seems like the prices have gone up since I got mine.

Sportsman's carriers are cheaper than Lodge's & are actually better made.

I had Craig make a wood disk to fit in each of our DO carriers. Each disk has holes routed in it for the legs to sit in...problem of poking legs solved! It also can be used to set the DO on any surface.

To solve the feet poking... I cut out a few layers of packing foam sheets, glued it together with construction adhesive, then poked holes for the legs. The feet never touch the bottom. I later added a piece of wood cut out to place on the bottom of the bag, and used for setting on top of a serving table so not to leave burn marks.

bobhenry, that frying pan is just a bit rude. :lol:

My grandma's cast iron never had cases, my mom's cast iron never had cases, doubt if mine will ever have cases. Dedicated spaces in the camp box, yes, but custom cases and bags, no.

Of course, if we don't get some precipitation soon, this summer will be another lost cause for fires at camp sites, anyway. Global Sun Oven Dutch oven cooking, anyone?

I was not readily concerned about the iron itsself but containing the residual ash and cooking residue (inside and out) . I was transporting them bagged in garbage bags in or on the mattress and bedding. After a few accidents I wanted something cheap to contain the mess rather than wiping in on the bedding.

F.Y.I. take the diameter of the d.o. x 3.14 and add about 4" for the waist size of size jeans needed.

ie. A 14" D.O x 3.14 = is about 44+4 is 48" waist. I didn't add the 4" and mine are a bit of a struggle to get the iron in. My error was not allowing extra for the ears and the bail.

I did cut a circle of 3/4 foam to stab the legs into and this help protect them from a direct blow if dropped as the legs can be rather fragile.

Year ago I bought a cover from a local tent and awning shop that had brass grommets in the bottom that the legs poked thru. I don't know if they still make them but they were $10 or less and had a zippered lid and good handle sewn on. Try googling Kirkham's in Salt Lake City and see if they still make them. Good quality and affordable. I even bought my first tent from them, a springbar, one of the first companied that manufactured them years ago. Best tent made!
I cut it three times and it's still too short!!

Catherine, I think it's been tried. Apparently the DO has to be hot when it goes in the cooker. I don't have a sun oven, but I am going to try a solar powered DO cook or two this summer. Probably helps my DOs are tiny. :)
