    Trying to find a single space rack bag (is that what it's called?).
    Just want something small for a parametric eq. I've seen them in a 14" depth but that wastes about 6" for me.

    Is it a half rack or full 1u? Perhaps a gator IEM bag if it is half rack.

    edit: fixed my autocorrect misspelt word...

    it's a Symetrix parametric. Full rack width--only about 7" deep

    I bought the SKB Xrack3.
    It is 10.5" deep, just sufficient to mount a Crest ProLite2 power amp.
    These racks can be a bitch, because they have a flat rear cover and not the removable lid of the Standard racks.
    With my ProLite2 installed, I cannot reach into the 3RU space to make connections.

    If all you are mounting are short depth devices, you should be OK.
    I'd think a 1RU will be too small to get your hand in the rear opening, so heads-up here.

    what I really want is what I guess you'd call a "rack bag". They make 'em for a single rack space but it's 14" deep and would be a pain as far as connections. This is something that I'd like that was small enough to use a shoulder strap with. Minimum size is what I'd like. I thought that they'd make one for guitarists that just wanted to carry around a shallow depth effects unit or something.

    Here is one, 8" deep, but it is U3.

    Gator Cases makes shallow racks but I don't think that they make a shallow rack bag.

    Mike, the problem you are coming up against is the 1 space need; 2 or more rack spaces would be the norm, here.
