I use pillow cases and duvet covers.All i do is get my wife to run around them with the sewing machine a couple of times to make sure that there is no way of escaping: victory:

but pillow cases arent big or strong enough for a burm and trying to convince him into a rub or something is virtually impossible

i dont like the woven ones, i think they are too rough, and if the snake moves backwards it gets under the scales. i prefer pillow cases, thats what i always use anyway. :2thumb:
pillow cases are great, but for hots they wont protect you at all. midwestherp do some good ones, difficulty is finding them in the uk. i have been told you can get them at reptile expos

yea, probaggers are good. but the bags you can buy seperately and they are very useful - used them and will continue using them if im out on a hike somewhere - not realyl herping. in belize you never know what you will find so its always useful to have a hook and some bags with you just in case
