Can anyone recommend a good belt-clip carrying case for the SL-6000?

I just went today at the outdoor sports store. I was remembering they were having the Heavy Armor and I was curious to look at it. The first time I saw it, I haven't received my Z, so, I didn't pay much attention to it. Unfortunately, they just moved out the summer stuff (the waterproof cases were with the canoes and kayaks) and they just keep the Pelican's in the store. sad.gif

However, I can confirm the Pelican 1040 is fitting almost perfectly the dimensions of the Z 6000, except the thickness. So, just a slim piece of foam will be enough to correct this. The problem with such a case is the Z is almost unusable while inside. The Heavy Armor is trying to keep it usable. That's what I tried to validate...

IMO, the best choice for those planning to bring their Z while outdoor, would be a case which permit the use of the Zaurus without having to remove it from the case, even if it's limited usage. The Pelican doesn't fit this requirement, but it protect the Zaurus pretty well. So, it would be my second choice.

If someone is having a Heavy Armor, it would be interesting if he/she can share it's experience with it.
