Whatever you keep your Z in make sure it bounces......

Well, I shopped. True to the measurements, all the DS Lite cases are too small. I ended up with a RhinoSkin generic pouch that's nylon canvas with a soft liner. It has a belt clip and two tiny pockets in the front. It closes with a large velcroed flap. I had to put in a piece of the packaging foam down at the bottom because the pocket is too deep, but, hey, my HP41 case did that too! http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_...duct_id=0202612

I almost bought one by CaseLogic meant for an Axim which is a more rigid zippered clamshell, just like their CD cases. I would've had to clip out the stiff plastic holder for the Axim, but that's no big deal. The CaseLogic one would protect the Z pretty well, I think, but had no belt clip. I may blow another $22 on that one if the RhinoSkin pouch bugs me too much.

have you tried making one out of gaff tape and foam?

i have a wallet made out of the stuff and its tuff, you get a bit of reside after a week but it cleans right of and you only have to take care of it once.

the best bit is you can form it to any shape you want, i have seen everything from wallets to camera cases made by family members (weird family) and its not to hard to build in a belt buckle attachment and magnetic close thingy into the design

I use the official soft case for the original DS if I'm going to throw the Z in a bag - it's a perfect fit.

Normally the Z goes into the inner pocket on my (fairly hefty) leather jacket.

- DaBlitz, you are a hoot! Wish you didn't live so darned far away.

- I use a butt bag, or fanny pack, or whatever PC term you want to apply. It's a vaguely triangular pouch on a strap that people wear around their waists. It is a purse in function, and I often call it "my purse". Hiro, Wifi, BT, cell phone, wallet, money, keys, flash drive, checkbooks, credit cards, ink pen, chapstick, keepsake from the wife ... every single thing I ever have on me at any given time is in there, exactly like a woman's purse. Since it's leather it's durable and little rain doesn't bother the contents in the slightest.

- I do also have my old Psion 5 case in there, but the Z doesn't go in. I have it primarily to hold the WiFi and BT cards in a manner where I can find them again, and since it makes a separate little pocket in there, the wallet and cell phone ride around in that little pocket. That also keeps the cell phone upright and readily accessible, as well as providing a physical division between checkbooks, wallet, and Hiro, which I find handy.

- On those very rare occasions where I'm in a suit I really miss my purse. Hiro fits in the breast pocket just fine, but man do I hate having crap in my pockets and poking in my butt or my leg the whole time I'm sitting. If I didn't consider it such a gaffe to wear the purse with the suit I'd do it in a heartbeat, but the only time I have the suit on I have to be aware of things like that. Social norms. Sheesh.

- Now if I could just take that next step of gaff tape and foam. Sure be a lot cheaper...
