I Recently picked up one of these great cases on Amazon for a very reasonable price. This case is also available on eBay. I would recommend checking both places as prices tend to fluctuate. It has a very solid build. All rivets are flush and the case and lid line up perfectly.
I decided to do some research on cases that I could take with me. I own three of the Odyssey 200 LP Cases and they are great for storing records at home, but I needed something for on the go.
This Odyssey case is perfect for that purpose. The built in handle makes it a cinch to transport up to “80” LP’s. I have found that it actually only holds around 60 LP’s if they are in 3 mil outer sleeves, or if you have some gatefolds included in the mix.
What really makes me enjoy this case is that I am able to put it in the back seat of my car when I am out record hunting. Instead of fumbling with a pile of 20-30 vinyl records I can place them in this case and not have to worry about them sliding around while in transit.
Now I know the cheapest route would be to use a canvas grocery bag and I have done this in the past. The main problem I had with this is that my album covers were not protected well enough. I would frequently end up with corner dings even when carrying them carefully. The weight of numerous records is also a bit more than some canvas bags can withstand.
I have also used vintage record carriers, but have had a couple handles come loose due to the weight. Since these were quite old and not made of the best materials fixing them was not an option. The vintage carriers do work, but I prefer the Odyssey Flight Cases. There are however some vintage style carriers that get great reviews. Click the image below to check out the Crosley CR401-TA Record Case on Amazon. This may be the route to take if you are not carrying a heavy load of LP’s on a regular basis.
I also considered the Odyssey KLP2SIL. I decided to go with the FZLP80 becuase there was a little more space and it also looked like it was a higher quality case. The KLP2SIL gets good reviews as well but for my purposes the FLZP80 was a better fit. At the time the two cases were pretty close in price from a couple sellers. I now see a some listed at the amazing price of $49.99 with free shipping on eBay. Click here to be taken to where they can be found at the best price.
Now the absolute best protection I can recommend would be the full size Odyssey LP Record Case. It holds up to 200 single LP’s and around 100 or more Double LP’s depending on thickness. The link to this excellent case can be found in the photo below. I also have another post on this site that goes into more detail about these cases. But for under $200 I have not found a better storage solution.
No matter which case suits your needs best you can’t go wrong with any of these. Based on personal experience and the great reviews they all have I feel confident in recommending them all. If you have any questions for me about Odyssey Flight Cases or anything else please feel free to leave a comment below and I will get back to you.
Have a Great Day and Happy Listening!!
