In the pinned thread that is mentioned in the above post, I found someone talking about a Sumdex pda case they purchased through www.ebags.com

The pda case fits perfectly, has plenty of room for other stuff and also carries my cell phone. It's only $12 (USD) and when I purchased mine, it came with free shipping.

From the pinned topic, I got a Nite-Ize PDA "stand up" style holster. It has been working pretty good so far, fits the Zaurus okay although probably not as snug as other PDAs.

I use a selfmade belt attachable carying case. no room for additional stuff, no holes for cables etc. only for carrying the Z around.

I already used a slightly smaller but similar case for my SL-5000 (visible in the background of the image).

I needed a quick solution to my case problem before I went on my Christmas vacation. I went to my local Staples and found the pictured case. Its thickness perfectly fits the thickness of the zaurus. It has about an inch of spare room on the side and top (or bottom). It has nothing to secure it to the zaurus. I think it costs $24.

alge,

looks really nice, a couple q's:

- how is it working out for the 6K? do you think a velcro fastener would work better for easy closing?
- how long to put together?
- source of leather? cobbler, craft store, other?

I'll prepare a short HOWTO for this doityourself case, with some more pictures ...

It took me about three evenings. I got the leather from a local cobbler store, it is about 3mm thick.
You only need some rather strong yarn, a leather needle, a swiss army knife or similar and four! tapestry needles.

velcro fastener: dont know, may be better, but the simple loop works well.

I'm using the smaller 5000D case for almost two years now (everyday), I had only to replace the yarn one time (from cotton to synthetics).

Since Ebags is having 20% off these days, I took a look at their collections
SL-6000 is  6.22 inches by 3.14 inches by .80 inches
7* 4.5" x 1.5" for 15.99 -> elegant
http://www.ebags.com/case_logic/strongman_...m?modelid=44303


Be aware that this one does not hold SL-6000 because the holder is much less than the size of the bag. I just received it this afternoon and am ready to return it.

I wanted a minimal, unobtrusive (if that is possible with the 6000 smile.gif ) holster type case to hang on my belt for use at the office. This is what I found:

Shaun Palmer Caselogic Gameboy case

The Z sticks up about a half an inch from the top and it does expose the top corners, but I think it is about the smallest possible holster case that is usable. The Z will fit in the case with the plastic screen protector, but I really didn't like leaving it on all the time. For now, I use a Nushield screen protector and turn the Zaurus upside down and facing backwards in the case.

The best part is that I found the case for $4.90 at Frys!

I was in France last week and managed to pick up a couple of these. Best case I've seen for a sl-6000 + sled. I only need one, so would be glad to sell the extra one for what I paid (20 euros) + shipping, if anyone is interested.
I am in the US, btw.

I just went with the Case Logic PLTK-10, about $15 from CompUSA... it's just a "snap over the belt" style holster, and the 6k sticks out the top by about 1/2 an inch, but it's a) cheap, b ) attaches to a belt, c) fairly unobtrusive (as unobtrusive as the 6k CAN be), and d) allows easy-in easy-out, so good for occasional "grab it and go" use.

Here

Disadvantages: no retention mechanism. The thing comes with an elastic loop on the inside that's supposed to stretch over the top of the unit and hook onto a metal hook on the back. But the 6k is far too big, so now you have a bit of elastic rubbing on the unit, and after several months there's a noticeable (although not heinous) scuff on the plastic fold-over screen protector. I may just cut the elastic off and see if that helps.

In general, though, it's working very well for $15.

Cool - someone else bought it :-)

Good looking, comfortable etc... the best there is, as if it was made for it.
