Barrel pump storage ideas?

So I have your typical 4 inch barrel pump and sometimes I clove hitch the hose so I can strap it to the body and sometimes I stick in dry box if there is room and sometimes it gets buried in the drop bag but I am looking for a more elegant solution.

I am thinking of some kind of bag that opens big enough to get it in and out quickly with a couple of built in straps to restrain the hose a bit. I played around with velcro last night but haven't dialed it in yet.

Anyone have any ideas?
There has to be someone smarter than I out there who has gone through this already.

I put my 6 in. barrel pump in a bag you use to ship your golf bags in. I paid $2 for it at a garage sale. Works great when I pack that beast on my boat.

nope. it's just a simple canvas bag with a wide zippered opening and a strap to carry it.

So my k-pump came with a roll-top bag (K-Pump Inflatable Top Off Hand Pump - K-Pump K400 - Bag) that does basically what your looking for. I've tried to think of "real-world" analog but have failed. If you want a silly, non elegant idea, cut a leg off a pair of old jeans and see if it all fits, if so and you or someone you love sews you could either sew it up... or if sewing's an option, make nice, long-slender bag out of some cheap fabric... or even have one of the strap builders make you one if you want to get real fancy...

I use a zippered mesh bag that I also put a few extra cam straps and rope or left over items into. Its the last thing to get strapped to the pile behind the rower and is real handy to get in and out of.

I bought a K-Pump specifically because it fit in the small space between the top curve of my tube, under the deck, alongside the cooler. This was after trying to keep my barrel pump accessible and unstrapping it from the gear pile and setting it aside and realizing the next morning it must have gone overboard while derigging.

Jack's makes a bag that works well. Call them and ask them about the dimensions of the pump and if it would it. My buddy runs his pump in this bag.

Sorry to hijack, but Elk - how do you like the k-400? I like the high & low volume versatility in a small pump. Seems easy to use and switch from high to low volume & vice versa. I like my k-100 and their custy service has been great, but if I needed to pump a raft with a k100, I don't think my arms could withstand the strokes, and they are conditioned for 'those kind' of strokes😏
