Merlin arm & vest

How are you carting your's around?

the Merlin has a case and I'm finding it easy to fold the lower spar up and carry it with camera attached in a soft bag but the arm and vest is a pain.

should I dismantle the vest completely and pack it in something or leave the arm connected and pack it whole?

I bought a Flyer case from Tiffen, which they modified for the Merlin. I dismantle everything and whack them all in there, including the Steadistand.
