    Hiking style bag for MD'ing

    I never hunt in a spot where it is illegal, or private property where I have not asked for permission. I have however learned that not everyone has a positive opinion of MD'ers and others are so curious they never leave my side. So i decided i kind of want to hide my detector when going to public parks & using their paths (usual wooded trails that lead to an old home site).
    So I'm looking for a backpack style bag that Will completely cover a MD. Of course i like to have my cake and eat it too, who doesn't? So i would like a bag where I don't have to completely take apart my MD.
    I have an At Pro which set up how I detect is 51" long with the coil folded up. And is 38" if just the coil to control box covered. I think shortened as short as possible it is like 45" or something.
    So what does everyone use for a bag? Preferably something with no big logos & shoulder straps that I can carry on my bag. Any suggestions?

    I have a 65 Liter Hiking pack that I use for deep woods hunting.

    Holds my detector, shovel, water, food, and all kinds of emergency goodies.

    And I just look like a hiker.

    Ive thought about this before as well but the problem is if you don't want to take apart the detector and the bag is sort of long (like the carry bags made for them) then some people may mistake it as you carrying in a rifle..

    I bought the Fisher long backpack. Works great and looks like your carrying a regular pack.
