HHKB w/ Sleeve*PICS
« on: Sat, 29 December 2012, 14:24:17 »
In my attempts to find a sleeve for my HHKB that wasn't the ridic EK case, I purchased this gun sleeve from Amazon and herein my impressions:

Pros:
-Fits like glove.
-Fits the stock USB HHKB cable.
-Sock material protects against scuffs/scratches.
-Minimal but present padding.
-Stretch materials allows for more accessories if need be.
-Does not compress keys.
-Discreet package, so you don't look like a total nerd.
-Low footprint for stowing away once keyboard is out of case.
-Inexpensive and Prime eligible.

Cons:
-Not a hardshell, no protection against 4ft+ falls.
-Cannot comment on durability.
-Put it through the washer once, because manufacture cloth pilling is present and can get in keys.


Overall very happy and this will be my primary means of carrying my HHKB via in hand -to class and in bag for longer journeys. Food for thought for others and a definite buy for some.

Thanks GH.

if you got a glock don't bare rock it
put it in a suave gun sock, it's
really sleek with sensuous gray lines
but if you don't own a firearm, i find
it'll fit a happy hacker, too, just fine

yeah who the hell owns a gun sock what is this nonsense THAT THAR'S A KEYBOARD SOCK

I did look into these, and found conflicting stories/pics of the bag compressing the keys, etc. I wanted to be especially careful as I did not want the membrane of the Topre to be damaged in a tight/compressed case. In addition, the price was a bit steep on such a gamble -knowing that fitment would vary due to the bags being hand/tailor made.

Wow, what a great Idea.

Cool that it worked out so well too. I'm sure a lot of people will want to get their hands on that too.

Plus, It takes away from EK's monopoly on topre stuff.

This item is no longer an 'add-on item' on Amazon. I just ordered one for $5.59:

Just ordered one last night. Was still an add-on, but I needed some other stuff from Amazon anyways.

Nice idea, I'm going to have to see if I can find something like this in the UK.
The sleeve not the cardboard box  :p
