what is the fabric?

I've gotten rather found of 1680D.  it's durable enough for my needs and I don't find it especially abrasive (good point for me).

It's a woven nylon with a rubberized water-resistant backing. Made for outdoor applications, so it's made to hold up to the elements!

One thing I wanted to mention: I do take Bitcoin and anyone who pays with BTC can take $5 off their total.

Do it. Do it NOW.

There will be an Ergodox design in round 4, next month. I was hoping it would be ready for this round, but that wasn't possible. Sorry about that! But stay tuned.

Consider me in. My body is ready.

Going to keep an eye on this thread for sure. Can't afford anything now (no job means no $$$), but this is a really cool service and I'd love a carry case for my QFR

I got my case today. It's just a plain black one with magnets.

It fits well, not perfect, it's a very slight bit loose but otherwise it's good enough. I suspect the reason for this is because I'm using low profile DSA keycaps.

The material is really tough though. I'm still wondering how something can be this stiff, which is really good. It's nice and tough and inside is still soft enough to keep it padded.

There's enough space at the end to keep a cable and I really like the feel of the magnets.

Overall I'd say it's a very good case and I intend to buy another one. Just make sure to check your dimensions with him first when you buy a premade one to make sure it fits nicely :)

Looking forward to the return of the custom round!

Yea, using low-profile keycaps can affect the fit. Glad you are pleased overall!

In other news, all in-stock cases are $10 off through Sunday 6/8. We need to sell these before taking any more custom orders, so if you like what you see, take advantage!  :D

Okay guys... UPDATE!


Custom orders are open again. Only taking 5 orders this time, and one has already been claimed.

If you don't want to wait for a custom order, we still have several premade cases in stock and ready to ship. See the OP. Those cases will go out next business day.

My ErgoDox has arrived and been built, so we are working on the carrying case design now and will have them available by the end of the month. Sorry for the delays on this, it's coming, I promise! :)

Any questions, let me know.

Kingsaver case sold!

It showed up at my house as a surprise! Ya'll will probably see some nice action pics of it at Keycon. I'll have to play with it more to have more detailed thoughts on it but at first touch, it's nice. The end opposite the magnetic flap is a little looser than expected though.

Can you elaborate? You mean the internal side panel on the side opposite the flap?

Yes, that's exactly what I mean. The other three sides are very solid. The side panel opposite of the flap seems to have a bit too much material and has play in it. None of the other sides have any play.

Also, should the flap have a hard insert too or no?

It is normal for the panel to have a little play inside the fabric because it's a separately cut piece (although we are looking at ways to improve that aspect of the cases). The flaps have soft padding instead of a hard insert. If there is too much material on the end, though, that should be addressed in the Kingsaver pattern. Shoot me a PM with a couple pics so I can pass them along to the artisan?

I was thinking of a black and purple case.

Is there enough fabric for that? Like a half and half.

Very excited for this! I'll finally have something to protect my keyboards! I used to bring them to school, but I was afraid they might get damaged.
