More custom requests please.   In addition to the snap pocket and top handle, I would love a small pocket for the USB, credit cards and cash etc..    Now that would make it not just a keyboard case, but a nice EDC as well.     ;D :thumb:

I don't transport my keyboards.......I just want anyway LOL.   Actually thinking of sending the kiddo to gaming camp.   Probably more fun for him than SAT camp or some community outreach ......

Measure the KB according to the instructions in my OP, and I will let you know! If not, it is only a $5 surcharge for a custom size.

Yo dudes.

There is no waiting list right now. In fact, for the second round, we may do things a bit differently -- will probably produce a bunch of cases -- some plain black, some really funky and awesome one-offs -- for a whole bunch of popular keyboards and then sell them as ready-to-ship items with no lead time.

there will certainly be more chances for custom orders at some point, though.

However, if you are interested, what you can do is post here and tell me what keyboard(s) you might want cases for, and we will incorporate that input when producing the next batch.

stay tuned--there will be some awesome limited edition stuff.

derrr...any chance of an ergodox version being made?

I'm thinking it would be fairly squarish with an internal divider separating the two halves.

also, how stiff are the exteriors? I'm wanting to use these to store keyboards and having the case be stiff enough so that switches aren't being actuated if there are two or three other keyboards on top.

I was about to ask a similar question. I plan on putting this I'm my backpack and it would be nice for it to sit there with other books. I don't want the topre domes to be pressed for extended periods of time.

I could always pick up the acrylic top for the HHKB and put both in the case. However if the case was hard enough on its own I wouldn't need to spend extra money which would be nice.

The cases are quite hard. The sides are made of a very, very stiff and strong foamboard. I wouldn't recommend sitting or stepping directly on these cases, but they will hold up just fine in a backpack.  Keys won't be pressed.

It looks great. But I need to wait for my fmj metal case to arrive before measuring the size.

And I've one recommendation, given people might change key caps often, the height might change a little bit with different key profiles. So you might want to include a little bit margin

Here is a really cool case for skcheng's KMAC Happy. He's getting another one like this for his KMAC 2 as well. It features button snaps, a vertical handle design that loops through the bottom of the case to support the weight of the KMAC, button snaps, a large rear pocket, and red side panels.

Everything that's done so far -- about half the initial batch -- is shipping out tomorrow or Thursday. The rest will follow shortly.  :thumb:

Have to say, very impressed with the quality of the case and how hard it is -- will definitely feel safe leaving my keyboard in this case and having it in my backpack on the way to work.
