    detector cover

    i was told to show off my new two piece cover for my DFX i got a little over a month ago. i have to say this cover is really really well made of Dupont water resistant army grade cordura material. very tough and i would highly recommend it if you want to save your machine from the elements , dust or if your the type to go into the thick under growth of the woods ect. i've only had mine for around a month and it is one hardy product . if anyone is interested in getting more info on them as this company makes them for a few different detectors ( whites, minelabs, and a few others as well ) let me know . i don't have any stock with the company i just think that they make a quality product is all.

    Yep, I've seen it and it looks like a better, more durable cover. Tighter fitting too. Where we hunt, you need every extra protection for your gear, that you can get Not much more costly than other covers.

    That's as good a cover as any... and those canvas like material surely is more rugged that that windbreaker material most of them are made out of

    They are sold by a small UK company called Thesaurus Accessories. They have an eBay store HERE, but I think that's about. Some dealers might carry a few of them for different machines as well.

    How's the plastic window? Mine gets smudgy and and hard to see through after having it awhile.I guess it's from condensation getting in on the other side of the plastic. Is this one pretty air tight?

    Thanks I think I'll invest in these. If it starts drizzling when I'm hunting I don't like to stop Sometimes forget to keep the baggies stocked in the car....

    Re: detector cover

    Yep there nice have a set for my MXT they have a waterproof looking material on the inside and very thin layer of what looks to be padding in the middle with the heavy nylon shell on the outside. I heard they are handmade and they fit like a glove, they are real nice to keep the dirt out and if you have a MXT or M6 they will keep the limbs and saplings from turning knobs and flipping switches while hunting in the woods. You can order them from detecnicks in the UK if shipping to the US you will need to E-mail them for the price and pay with paypal just have them send the invoice when you have the funds in the account. If your like me and don't want to link your checking account to paypal you can buy a moneypak card from walmart and other places I think to fund the paypal account.

    They look like they will take a lot of abuse.

    Re: detector cover

    I found a nice cover for my XLT in ebay, made in the states. Made for other makes and models also. It's a 3 piece set, box, display and even the hand grip. Fits and looks good and made of digital pattern camo cordura. I like it for the 21.95 shipping included. I am in no way affiliated with this product, just trying to share the info.

    Hi Dan, sorry I don't have anymore pic's right now, however I can take/post additional later. The cover has two reinforced slits that each side of the arm cuff fits through. The top of the cover has velcro that runs the length of the box, there is a hole for the headphone wire with a flap and velcro closure. The front of the box closes around the coil wire with velcro also. When I ordered the cover I had to specify it was for the MXT or DFX, I got the one for the DFX because the box is the same as the XLT-no knobs. Hope this helps.
