A River Runs Through It
Yep, the complete mag-loop antenna when dismantled fits into the storage bag seen with my antenna analyzer on top of the bag.
This storage bag attaches to the frame of my manpack when underway.

Just so you know, the river that you see behind me, I have fly fished for going on 40 years.
The Bow is a world class dry-fly fishery, and fishers come from around the planet to cast a line over the Bow.
In fact, if you look close just above and to the right of the microphone hanging on the frame pack, you will see a driftboat with a guide and his clients fishing the Bow for big Rainbows and Browns.
Darn, I should have brought my flyrod, as this location with my mobile parked nearby, is a location for leaving your vehicle while walking and wading the Bow located below this rise, with a path that accesses the river.
Oh by the way, the title is from the book "A River Runs Through It" and there also is a movie carrying the same name based on the book, directed by Robert Reford, that has Brad Pitts starring in the movie.
When the movie was released, the movie created a huge interest in fly-fishing, with many new fly fishermen born over night.
If you haven't watched the movie, check it out, as it was filmed just south of Alberta in Montana, and is worth the watch for the stunning scenery alone, with rivers like the Bighorn, the Madison, and the Blackfoot featured.
Of course, be forewarned, it may turn you in to a fly-fisher!
