I own the Petrol bag (previous generation, but the design looks the same
from the pics.)

It has space for TWO pieces of gear the size of the 702.  In my world, this
works nicely when I'm renting some radio mics or such, but does make it
larger.  There's also a protruding pad at the rear, which can be zipped open
to hold an external battery.  This positions the recorder a little away from
the body which is nice to use.  But Again this adds to the size.  All in
all, in daily use, I very much like the Petrol, but I almost never take it
traveling or camping because of the size.

If you want an utterly compact bag, look at the PortaBrace AR-7.  The front
pouch is removable, resulting in a quite small case.  The case bottom is a
fixed size... not sure how this accomodates the larger 960MAH capacity
Li-ION batteries.  The functional downside of the PortaBrace in my
experience is that the cloth and velcro work around the recorder's menu
control makes it a bit fussy in the field.

There's a UK company making a case which looks good.  I cannot find their
name at this time.
