Pro Carrier Deluxe
Way back in 2000, a very young Joshua Jay designed and released the Pro Carrier. It was the first of its kind, in a way: a quality leather case that held a pack of cards, coins, packet tricks, extra cards or items, and displayed your business card. It was and is a wildly popular item among working professionals.
After 16 years, the Pro Carrier is getting its first major update. Fans and users of the Pro Carrier will be delighted with the design improvements. If you've never used the Pro Carrier, this item has the capability to transform your magic! This is not hyperbole. The Pro Carrier is designed to be carried with you at all times, and magicians who integrate the Pro Carrier into their life will ALWAYS have a forty-minute close-up show within arm's reach. Never again kick yourself for not carrying duplicate cards. No more regrets about that shell you wish you had, or the double-facer you forgot to bring. All your signature tricks in one place, always by your side.
- Holds Two Decks, Four half dollars, 4 packet tricks, and business cards
- Made of high quality leather
- Includes clip for easy attachment to belt or briefcase
- Fits in your pocket or stands upright on table
Design Improvements include:
- Magnetic Flap: this used to be velcro
- Iron Clamp: so you can clip it to a case or your belt; this used to be looped
- Holds TWO decks: this is the biggest design improvement. Joshua decided that having a second deck would be a real asset, whether it be a memorized pack, Phantom Deck, or any other blockbuster ending. Now you can carry BOTH decks with you at all times
Customer reviews for Pro Carrier Deluxe
This is great. It allows you to organize your items without taking up much pocket space. Great for strolling and walk around. The quality is great as well. Highly recommended if you're working close up.
Another excellent product by v inc, great quality, feels good too, with plenty of space to keep two decks, gaffs and a coin purse inside this, which is a very clever idea.
wow, just wow!
Amazing quality, good job Mr. Jay!!
I love it! It's very nice quality, and it really can hold a ton of stuff in it. 2 decks, a few coins, rubber bands, a small packet trick or two - really everything that you would need in something to use for some every day carry effects. I actually only put one card deck in it though and use the other deck space to store a small altoid tin in for a "card to impossible location" effect. Great product!
I'm thoroughly impressed with its functionality and durability. This is a must-have accessory for any serious magician or performer who needs to transport their playing cards
What's great about the Pro Carrier Deluxe is its versatility. It can hold 2 decks of cards and coins, and the padded interior provides excellent protection for your items. The exterior is made of durable materials that can withstand wear and tear, making it a reliable choice for frequent travel and performances.
Holds what I need for impromptu close up routines.
Wonderfully versatile as well as attractive.
Go fer it!
I love the pro carrier! Caring magic has always been a problem. By magic is fun but carrying them is a really big problem. I’m always rummaging through my pockets trying this thing called pocket management, and to find the thing that I’m looking forward to that I can perform for the right people, and blah blah blah.
But this pro carrier, has change the game and how I perform magic. I’m able to open up my carrier case take out what I need within 30 seconds or less and I’m ready to perform. I used to have this big satchel on my side it was big and everything was all mixed up inside and I couldn’t find what I was looking for, but the pro carrier I can see exactly what I need like you’re carrying a magicians case only much smaller fits on your belt.
I love the zipper compartment, because that’s where I put Triad coins. (Thanks Joshua Jay for that effect!) I’m able to pull out those coins and get it set up within 30 seconds or less. The pool carrier is kind of like a holster for a gun. You can swing it open and pull out really quickly!
And since I can’t carry every gimmick deck, I can switch ones in and out. So I really love this case! I love it so much that I even bought an extra one. My question Joshua is, ”how did you make the belt loop so strong that the pro carrier doesn’t fall? It’s amazing!”
I’ve read reviews where there’s is one guy whose case fell right off the hook. But mine has not! So yeah I bought an extra one because it’s such a great thing to have. Since I don’t do magic as a living, that is because I’m a singer songwriter and actor here in Hollywood California.
I’ve got a lot on my plate just to deal with that. No matter where I go I love to perform magic on the fly especially for employers or should I say employees. I love seeing them smile after I do a trick. And then they’re off going back to work. The best complement I ever gotten was, “wow! That really made my day! Thank you!”
I can’t see what other cases you decide to make in the future, Joshua. I’m just a kind of guy who likes to keep things organized! Great prop!
I use this as an everyday wallet. It literally has everything a magician or cardistry artist needs - holds two decks, change, ID, credit card and has a money clip on back.
It's made of a high quality leather. The magnet closure is very strong. My only regret is not purchasing two! Hoping these come back in stock!
So I had the original pro-carrier, but this is a much more spacious and luxurious carrier in soft real leather.
Lovely product bought to store the Trojan deck.
Excellent service as usual!
Should have bought this a long time ago! The carrier will help you organize your close-up and greeting magic. It safely holds a great deal of material: up to two decks, packet tricks, business cards, coins and other miscellaneous small items like an out-to-lunch effect. Clips your belt, and it will maximize your flight time: you will have lots more opportunities to perform if you carefully select and pack this wonderful case. Make it your personal magic kit!
Beautifully made and a great utility.
As a master leather craftsman, I can tell you that in the beginning it will seem too tight. Don’t be concerned. As it’s used, leather stretches.
Fill it, use it and you’ll very soon have a great carry wallet that does exactly what you want it to do and then you’ll have a compact show in your pocket that looks perfect.
Comes highly recommended from a worker, perfect for any walk around situation and holds everything nicely. It was time to upgrade from my original version of this wallet purchased well over 15 years ago, and I got to thinking man what could be done to improve this wallet, well Josh did it again, with slight modifications to the belt loop and a strong magnetic closure this wallet is there.
Get this is you want to nerd out. It will hold your whole close up act if you let it…
This is a fantastic way to make you minimise your props, and give you a set in a minimal container that you could put in your glove box or similar, for emergencies.
This is a way better than the original pro carrier. While the first one was good, the adjustments made to this one makes it a comfortable piece for the stroller. I love that I can now fit 2 decks plus a stack of duplicates as well. Thanks!
I have two of them I love it so much!
Side note - I just wish it came in brown and or tan as well to go with different outfits and color schemes. But that's just me.
This case is exactly what I needed. Full disclosure: I am not a professional, but I'm an enthusiastic amateur who took up cards as a pandemic hobby and now I'm looking to build those skills beyond lockdown. My job means lots of last minute travel, so I needed something that could hold all my basic practice materials in a very small, organized space. The design is clever and the build quality is excellent. One deck for regular work, another for my dedicated Faro deck, plus coin purse and space for all my gaffed cards. This case and my pocket Erdnase and I can do my 90 minutes a day anywhere in the world. Fantastic stuff, I'll definitely be back for more.
Great magicians card carrier . It is well
Constructed and sturdy. Has extra pockets with a zipper for coins . I use mine all the time when I leave the house . Convenient little carrier .
My pro carriers just arrived. I took advantage of the sale deal and bought 2! Absolutely glad I did as they are awesome. At first it didn’t look like 2 decks, my business cards, a packet trick or two and some of my coins would actually fit in it!!
Good job guys , very happy. A quality product again from Vanishing Inc.
The Pro Carrier Deluxe – is a fantastic creation, way superior to my camera case or phone carrier. Love the belt clip and magnet cover close. Packet trick too tight in cover which has no thumb/finger notch, and I cannot fit a packet trick wallet into third compartment. Loose cards would become bent if placed next to coin pouch. Yes, I couldn’t resist and had to cut the coin purse out using pliers and scissors and damaged the outer compartment. Suggest you eliminate the coin pouch on the next version. Suggest you sell a version with two deck pockets and three deck pockets. The third deck pocket could hold separate coin purse (Goshman) or packet trick.
Holds two decks, coins and extra cards. Really good quality. The magnetic close is very neat and the window for a your business card is a nice touch. Perfect for a jacket pocket when heading out. Wish I had bought two.
I was looking for something to use to carry a couple of decks of cards and a few small props in so I can always have something "on me" in case I am asked to "do some magic".
The pro carrier fits the bill perfectly! It clips on my belt for easy access and now I am always ready to perform!
I love the pro carrier deluxe. It is a minimalist case that Carrie’s two full decks of cards, some gaff cards as well as my 3fly and CSB coins.
The belt clip is much better than the loop,
It has also helped me rethink what I carry and have pared down my strolling props to fit the carrier.
Thanks Joshua for redesigning the case and it is much improved from the original.
I really am enjoying carrying around my Pro Carrier deluxe. Just a great way to hold a regular deck of cards, my mem deck or Quantum Deck, a couple of packet tricks, and my CSB Coins. I was lucky to get this item when it was on sale a few weeks ago! Thank you Vanishing, Inc. for an item that I will always use!
Truly a functionally deigned high Quality product. I applied a smidgeon of leather creme to preserve & protect it like that which would be used on a pair of John Lobb City Oxfords. The Q of the Pro Carrier Deluxe has been evidenced by the test of time. A case at hand where form does follow function.
What a great little case!! I'm something of a "case nerd." I love cases and such. This one is fantastic. I got it to carry a trick that I perform that uses two decks. If you perform The Trojan Deck (or any other two deck trick), you need to get one of these for sure. Also, even something using one deck and a couple of small props that fit in a deck-sized space would work as well. The zippered compartment is great as well! I ended up ordering more because the case is so useful. The spot on the front side for business cards works well. Be aware that the front slot is horizontal, so if your business cards are vertical, they'll be displayed sideways. The description is perfectly accurate. I haven't had it very long, but you can tell it's good quality. It's not going to fall apart after a few uses. I can't imagine that this won't last a long time. You could even use it to organize different decks in one case by putting a card in the front panel so you can quickly identify gimmicked decks. Carry two decks, a few extra cards, coins, & business cards. All in something that you could clip on your belt if necessary. And it stands up on its own quite well. Quality is great!! Couldn't be happier with this.
I had been using a camera case since I couldn’t find a case that would carry 2 decks that looked professional also. It finally broke and I had not been able to find a replacement. Then I got the email from Vanishing Inc for the Pro Carrier Deluxe and it sounded just like what I’ve been searching for. I decided to give it a try and have been extremely happy with it. It’s very well made and doesn’t look like you’re wearing a Fanny pack when you use it. The belt clip and magnet to close it shows a great attention to detail as far as what is most useful when designing it. I don’t do any coin magic so can’t comment on that but I would assume it is just as good with the coins in it. I only ordered one but will end up with another one just so I’m never without it. Great job on an awesome product.
I have the original Pro Carrier, and still use it. The only issue is that I frequently need
two decks or extra room for gimmicks. The Pro Carrier Deluxe solves those problems.
If you don't need to carry an extra deck, you can use a card box to hold some or your
gimmicks or your coin box can fit in the extra space. When I don't need two decks I
will put a coin box, my tiny plunger, and my ring and rope in the extra space.
This item is well worth the price and I prefer the magnetic closure to Velcro.
P.S. In case you haven't thought about it, the magnetic closure also doubles as
a holdout for anything that will sticl to a magnet.
I really like this updated version of this carrier. But at the original price I think it's a little steep. But if you can get it at the sale price just get it and you can't go wrong! It's beautiful, genuine leather. It's everything that it is described to be. It's large enough to hold everything it is supposed to hold but it's small enough to carry with you. The only thing that people might not like is that if you're not a coin magician you'll have some wasted space. There is a nice coin purse built into it but if you don't carry coins you won't be using that space. Unless you have something else you carry like a gimmicked key or something else that might fit into that space. It really is a nice compact but also spacious carrier. I would definitely recommend it, especially at the discounted price.
What a great way to carry anything you might need for a walk-around style gig! It's high quality, well designed and made to last a long time. I normally wear a jacket and have my everyday carry in it, however, during the summers in Arizona, that's not possible and this is ideal! If I get asked for magic, this will allow me to carry around at least 30 - 45 minutes of magic without a problem and it blends into your outfit.
Got this on black friday for half price and almost bought 2. That's my only regret that I didn't buy 2!!
I really like it, to be able to have 2 decks set up ready to go and I have a three card monte trick and 6 gaff cards ready to get in play as and when needed. Also just a nice way to protect the cards rather than having them in a pocket. Also has a pocket for coins.
I think the quality is superb and it looks built to last so when I say I wish I bought 2, it would be purely to have second set up as I don't expect this to be breaking up anytime soon.
Excellent -- for what it is. Your mileage may vary, but I find that this isn't the ideal "EDC" solution (as in, carry nothing else). What it's excellent at is *supplementing* your existing loadout, and getting a deck or two out of your pockets and into a compartment where they'll be better protected. Since it's not a holdout that I could quickly or stealthily remove an item from, I personally keep a few items in it in my business briefcase for when I am "challenged" in my day job. What I keep in it to give you ideas: In addition to a normal Bicycle deck, I also keep Leo Smester's collapsible chop cup (which is made to fit in a card box, so it's perfect), a "pinchful" of rubber bands, a single boot lace for ring and string, a Bic lighter and (in the zipper compartment) a prepared card for Counterfeit Hollingsworth. When upper management feels like showing me off while waiting for an important meeting to start, I put the PCD down on the table and feel like I look far more professional than I would using a camera case or other "close-up" solutions. Thumbs-up, recommended buy.
So I've wanted one of these for a while. I'm kind of a "case nerd." Any kind of case, bag, box, container, etc. - I geek out on these kinds of things, so the idea of this really appealed to me.
I just have to say that when I opened the package I was NOT disappointed. It's exactly what they say - DELUXE!! This thing is nice. Genuine leather, so it feels good. Perfectly sized for two decks of cards, some coins, and a few extra cards. The magnet closure is great. The belt clip - well done - low profile, so if I don't clip it to my belt, it's not in the way. I love everything about this case. The only negative is that I only got one. I'm going to have to get a few more of these.
I got this for a specific trick that uses two decks of cards, and it will be perfect. The added coins and packet tricks that will also fit is just an added bonus. Thanks VI and Josh Jay for the perfect little case!!
This thing is pretty cool!!! I was a bit hesitant at first, but it really does make things so much more convenient. I hold two decks, a couple coins and one packet trick. It really frees up some much needed pocket space for my larger strolling stuff. I’ll probably buy a second one just to have a backup.
This product oozes class. The original was nice, but a bit small. You can customise what you carry without taking up valuable pocket space. Look like a true pro with this carrier!
I have two deck of cards, one packet trick, and 4 coins with shell easily in this, without bulging open !
It keeps the props in great condition and is also great if you’re travelling and you don’t want to take a big close up case!
Well worth the money !
This is super high quality. This is perfect for busking and just bringing some magic to a friend's house. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys doing street magic or who does a lot of traveling. This is also very comfortable for your pocket. It is slightly larger than a normal wallet.
This is great and I use it to hold my EDC. In here I usually keep a deck in a stack, a gimmicked deck, and maybe some sort of phantom deck or Omni deck. In terms of the coin area, it is very thin and is good for the Triad Coins. This is great for busking and just bringing to a friend's house if you wanna perform some closeup.
This is so much better than i expected this to be, the carrier is very well made, a strong magnetic locking system that flips over the front of the carrier were you can put your buisness card, or a gaff card, also it has a zip coin purse, and still more space with enough room for more gaff cards too, and a belt clip on the back, if you need this.
I have had my Pro Carrier Deluxe for a year now. I carry this thing everywhere. I carry two pocket card tricks, two trick decks, and 3 different coin routines! (including triad coins by Joshua Jay) It also holds my business cards in the front window display! Works great and amazing quality!! I HIGHLY recommend this!! Great for any magician for walk arounds, street magic, whatever wherever! Get yours asap!!
I bought two of these and am pleased. I’ll likely buy a couple more. With planning, you can put together an entire strolling show using only one.
I loved the original Pro Carrier, but it was a bit small and cumbersome because it had to be threaded onto the belt. Also, if you had it fully loaded, it would not close well. I jury-rigged it to allow it to clip onto my belt, but it was still a bit small because it only allowed you to carry a deck of cards comfortably; otherwise, it would not close well. The new design is FANTASTIC. The quality of the leather is top notch. It can hold two decks of cards comfortably. I have a deck of cards in one slot. In the other slot designed for another deck of card, I put a coin purse with 4 halves and 4 dollars. AND I have a string for ring/string AND the props for matchbox penertration. AND Turbostick with a pen. I wrapped some rubber bands around the closing flap. I know that sounds stuffed, and it is ( I was really just trying to see how much I could get in there), BUT it all fits in there and IT CLOSES easily.
This carrier is brilliant. It is a little hard to carry anything else when there are two decks in it but with one deck it all fits great and is a good way to carry a few extra props to gigs. All in all, a great product.
I don't "carry" this. However, it is a really great way to keep a good smattering of close up effects together and transport them. The carrier is leather; is well made; and does exactly what is says it is does. I put 4 half dollars and a shell, a deck of cards, and the Phantom Deck in mine. When I go out, I pick it up and throw it in my console in case someone asks if I have "anything [I] can do." Super convenient, super handy, and keeps things organized without taking up too much space.
This is a great addition to your magic. I am not debating the quality here, because it looks excellent to me. So why not excellent as a total? Well, I would never use this on a professional gig (I am a pro and have been for over thirty years btw).
But..., I do use this two have it, filled to the brim, in my car. That way I can, if an emergency arises, always immediatly go into a close-up routine. Two decks, each stacked of course for specific tricks to begin with, some tricked coins, a few rubber bands, business cards, some extra gimmicks to perform Anniversary Waltz and a packet trick.
I used to have a deck of cards lying around in my car so I could perform a trick or two anytime, but this is so much better!!
For a professional gig this can be put to good use but it just does not suit my style, I prefer my High Caliber Holster.
Loaded everything into it and it held everything really well but the clip didn't even last a day the carrier slid right off the clip and hit the floor and all I was doing was walking not even fast. I think I will put it in my case instead of making it my casual carry and just use my pockets like normal. It will at least make it a fast grab if I need to show something.
This is a very nice product! I use mine pretty much every day and have been for 9 month. It's still holding up very nicely and it still look as good as new. I love that you can just clip it on to your belt. With my other model I always felt like i terrorist.
The downside is that it is a bit front heavy so that it takes up more physical space it had to. I carry a I deck, a z-wallet with cards and recharmed I'm sure. So it's not overloaded.
Other than that im very happy. The open and close mechanism is slick and sweet!
I love the new and improved version of the Carrier. (I also own one of the "old" version.) However, I have a suggestion for – perhaps – version 3: How about making it so that it holds two decks side-by-side instead of one outside the other? That way it doesn't become as bulky as it can be with two decks and a few packet tricks as well? Also, with all the stuff I just mentioned in it, the closing strap still doesn't quite close the case. Keep at it, though. I like the way you're thinking.
Good, could be much better. I think it is easier to just spell out the cons. The coin purse area is too small and rigid. Very hard to get coins out. The packet trick holder can only fit 4 cards. Not very useful. The lid does not close properly, if ANYTHING more than 2 decks are in it, in fact I think this thing is really only usable with 2 decks or 1 deck plus other things. Don't believe the description, will not hold as much as it claims
The pro carrier wallet is a great concept, hold coins and 2 decks of cards. Unfortunately the belt clip came apart after just under a year with little usage. On the next iteration the clip should be more robust.

Dave asks: Is there an easy way to remove the coin holder section with out damaging the rest of the carrier? This way you can carry more packet tricks if you don't do coins.
- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Great idea but sadly I don't think you can do this without damaging the rest of the carrier. I just checked my one and this would involve cutting it very precisely which I don't think can be done unfortunately!
Marco asks: Does this accessory come with a download video or trick ideas?
Post an answer to this question
- 1. SGKYDUYEN answers: Nope! it's just an accessory
Kim asks: Where do I put my thumb tip?
- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: If you remove one of the decks, there can be room for a thumb tip.
Kim asks: Jim, thanks for the expedient reply. Yep, that's the one the new-and-improved version of my oldie but still goodie Carrier. I haven't a question, however (being a Grammar Snob), I thought you might like to know that ... under "Design Improvement /Iron Clamp"... the word _clip_ is misspelled as _flip_.
