I ordered 2 of these and I am simply amazed at the quality of this Item, I bought these to shove in
pockets (I hate wearing such things on a belt, looks kinda nerdy) well with this product I have
changed that, It looks like a Zune MP3 player Case on your belt It is not too bulky and not too
tight, I can get everything I need Comfortably :)
Here is what I have in Pouch #1 with
space to Spare:
Deck of cards /w Dupe
Packet trick - Strange Travellers (20 Cards)
Packet Trick - NFW
Packet Trick - Color Monte
In the coin compartment I have:
x Half Dollars
1 x Folding quarter
1 x Half Shell
1 x Butter Coin
2 x Rubber Bands
there is still plenty of room and no bulk :)
Case #2 Consists of the following:
Packet Trick - Penguin Monte
10 x Extra Gaff Cards Double backer, etc..
Oh, I forgot I have my business card in the front window of each Case. I still have a ton of
room in my second case as well but deciding what to add is tough for me.
I would highly
Recommend picking up one of these for any serious card worker, there are so many things that can be
packed and you do not have to worry about damaging your cards in any way.
This is also a
great way to organize your things as well I am considering picking up a few more just to use as an
organiser for things that I use less often.
Thanks for reading my review, Roy

I'm not sure about the other reviews talking about all the room it has. I just pulled mine out to
start using it and there's almost no room at all to close the flap. With nothing in the carrier
the flap closes fine and attaches with no problem to the velcro fastener. When I put in just a deck
of cards the flap closing becomes pretty snug. The top of the packet was fine but the along the
sides it was fanning out at the bottom with the accordian fold. When I added just a few extra
cards and 4 coins the case itself was fine but when I tried to close the flap it looks VERY packed.
There was no flap size onsideration for trying to close the pack when full. The space on the flap
between the front and back edges needs to be at least 1 inch bigger. this way the pack could hold
more than just 1 deck of cards. I hope it makes sense what I was describing.

I love the idea behind the carrier, and I can't wait to use it. It looks pretty cool and
professional. The quality of the leather is terrific, and $20 is a pretty reasonable price for it.
There are a few things that could have been better though.
The cards are pretty snugged in
the carrier making it a tad hard to close the pouch. Overtime after breaking it in, maybe the
leather will loosen up a bit and have less tension. Still, I wish the product was just slightly
larger so that I don't have to put to much stress on it to begin with so it could last longer.
The number of pockets are there, but everything is just to tight. I feel like I'd really have to
dig in to the pouch just to retrieve what I need, and I don't plan on carrying much either.
This worries me the most. The straps that attaches to your belt is also pretty tight. Like many
cell phone pouches, why couldn't a clip be built in as well? This would put less strain on the
product when being worn, and it would also make it much easier to take off when its in the way or
not in use.
I can't imagine this product lasting to long if you plan on wearing it as
often as I do. But if you're curious and have the money to spare, then go for it. I really really
REALLY think Joshua Jay should work on improving it though and come up with some sort of Pro Carrier
version 2 or something. Perhaps add in additional strap or clip of some sort to hold your sharpies

Don't get me wrong, this is a great idea. It simply isn't big enough to do what it says it does. It
won't hold a full two decks, and close, but it is still holds a fair amount of coins, packet-tricks
and small props. Still, a nice looking case for some light duty walk-around magic.
I am very pleased with my purchase of The Pro Carrier. With this on my belt I have access to a lot
of magic. It's not bulky on my belt, and looks very professional. This pouch is not designed to
carry everything you own. If you are trying to put everything you know how to do inside the pouch
you may be disappointed.
Having this on my belt has freed up my pockets a lot. This allows me
to work a few items out of my pockets with plenty of room.
The Pro Carrier is not expensive, is
well made, and is easy to work out of.
I highly recommend picking up The Pro Carrier.
I got this because it organizes everything very nicely. In the carrier I have a blue deck set up for
Exposure by Cameron Francis, and I also carry the gaffed joker for corner in the inside transparent
compartment. I also keep paper clips for Marcus Eddie's Stairway in the zipped compartment, and a
set of cards for R&B by Dan Harlan. Amazing case. I gave it four stars because one of the belt loops
broke after just over a year. I thinks the integrity of the loops could be made a bit stronger.
I like the sleek look and the multiple dividers of this carrier. It will handle a single deck and a
surprising amount of other magic paraphernalia. I can easily get one of my long sets into this case.
Only two drawbacks- it’s too small for most plastic card holders for packet tricks and I agree with
another reviewer about the 2 deck issue, not sure how you would close the carrier with 2 decks.
I actually own two of these, one I use on my belt and the other as a clutch. I have purchased
several Joshua Jay products and have been satisfied with all of them.
A number of months ago, I related on the Penguin Discussion Board my propensity to accidentally
spend gaffed coins, in effect buying a $20 Coke. A fellow Penguin recommended this carrier as a
place to store these gaffs.
I took the advice of a previous reviewer and purchased two of
these, as they don't hold a lot. (Now that I'm performing "Exact Change," I've lost my goto pants
The leather quality is great, and with two, I should be set-up for a bunch of
walk-around effect (including the remaining pants pockets and pockets in my sports jacket.)
The reason I took a star off is because of the leather loops, not clips, to attatch it to your
belt. This means that you need to take your belt off and thread these every time you want to use the
carriers. Also, when the leather does begin to wear, it's the straps I expect to go first.
Finally, the price is incredibly reasonable for what you get. (I was looking at another system
that cost more than $300!) The way I look at it, the very first time I don't spend another gaffed
coin, the Pro-Carrier will be paid for.
may not hold a lot but holds the things that i need to perform right on the spot. thanks joshua for
something that i can use.
One of the biggest problems of walk around magic is having bulging pockets.
on your belt, behind your back keeps it out of sight and keeps the stuff in your pocket at a
The only gripe i have, as mentioned in other reviews, is that just by putting a
deck in, the flap doesn't close completely. Not so much of a big deal since its out of sight
