I'm up in Billings for a few days, and stopped by a couple of Army Navy Surplus stores.

Found this at one for $5 ---



It's heavy canvas and looks like it might be German surplus?  It was the only one I found and it was in the bargain bin.


The other store had these for $7 --


It looks like new production, Asian-made likely.  It's a thinner, Cordura-type material.  They had green and black.  If anyone wants me to pick one up while I"m still in town lemme know.

The canvas one was just too bulky as I feared it would be.

The nylon one worked out really well, and fit in the Ag tool tube nicely!  I stopped by Sundance Equipment and they had an extra canister that was a take-off from a piece of equipment they'd already sold off, so I got it free!
Need to figure out a mount for it now.  It "kinda" fits on the left side under the panel ... I'm a bit worried about clearing the tire if they suspension is fully compressed, but I won't really be able to tell 'til I get it mounted up there and can bounce it around.  I think I just need a U-bolt that will fit around the frame towards the rear, and then a single bolt up front - there's a little tab that will be perfect to drill at, it's like a retaining clip for the inner fender I think.  Pics when I finish! 8)
