inexpensive sleeves for Kindle 3 (keyboard)?

Are there any inexpensive sleeves available for the Kindle 3 (the one with the keyboard) anymore?

I used to have a cheap one that was simple and easy, but I lost it.
It looked a lot like this one:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Forefront-Am.../dp/B004JEGKBG

But when I ordered this one to replace it and it arrived, it turned out this one is actually far too small. The old one had the same model, but the Kindle slipped in easily, without thought. This one is about the same size, or even slightly smaller than the actual Kindle, which means it's a very tight fit and you have to wriggle to even fit it into the sleeve. Which is major pain (for me, at least).

Are there any sleeves available that the Kindle 3 fits more easily into, that don't have a zipper (preferably) and that are available in Europe?
Most of the sleeves on Amazon.com seem meant for the new Kindle models.

(And the Timbuktu company charges 30 dollars shipping to Europe. Sigh.)

When I got my Kindle 3 at release time I used a 4" x 8" padded "bubble" envelope to keep it in while I was waiting for cheaper cases to be released, best $.69 case I ever used.

The Kindle 3 is very close in size to the Kobo. Are there any stores near you selling Kobo readers that might have accessories?

I bought a cheap sleeve on ebay (just like this one http://r.ebay.com/tHK1tS) for my Kindle NT, but it's supposed to be for Kindle 3. For a $2.99 sleeve it works just fine.

I bought a neoprene zipped case for a 7" netbook for my Kindle 3. A little larger than the Kindle but works really nicely. Paid £3.99 for it from my local Staples.

I've had 2 sfbags.com sleeves, for my Kindle2 & the Kindle Keyboard. Both have been excellent at providing protection w/o being bulky.
