Inexpensive case, cover, or sleeve for Nook Touch (STR)?

My favorite Nook STR cover is the Industriell Easel Cover, but the price (US$40) is over the top.

Has anyone found a simple case (zippered or non-zippered) or a non-zippered neoprene sleeve for under US$20 that fits the 6.5" x 5.0" x 0.5" (165mm x 127mm x 12mm) Nook snugly?

The Industriell Easel Cover also has a significant design flaw: the strap is several inches too short to make a good easel.

When used as an easel with the strap attached to keep it from collapsing, it holds the STR much too vertical for good reading when placed on a table.

I bought a case made by Patogonia that looks very much like this Amazon one. I got it in Marshalls for $5. It is not a perfect fit for the Touch (as you can tell from the photos), but it works OK and the price is right.

The Sony zippered sleeve for the PRS-650 is an excellent fit. It is thin and has stiffened panels front and rear for more complete protection of the screen. It lists for $25.

Does the touch screen not go mad with all of the touches from the inside of the bag?

I have a small zipper pouch I ordered from thirty one. Tried it today and works great as a sleeve for the nook str. And it was only $2.31 with a purchase regular price $10!

M-edge has had the Nook touch models listed as "soon" for quite a while. Still waiting for them to show up.

I bought the CaseCrown regal flip case for my Nook Simple Touch. I really really like it. Protects well, looks sharp, not too bulky, doesn't get in the way of anything, and holds the STR very securely.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0055UEJWK

I highly recommend it.

I highly recommend it.
I looked at this one and its reviews on Amazon (thanks for the pointer!). It does indeed look pretty good. I'm needing to buy covers because I'm going to be putting these things in the hands of 3rd graders... the one concern I have is that some of the (admittedly few) reviews indicated this one is hard to snap closed. What's your feeling on that, especially if in the hands of 8-10 year olds? Is this a problem that might go away with use (i.e., loosening up just a little)?

Does anyone have any other recommendations for non-sleeve covers? (My feeling is that the sleeves, since separable, are much more likely to get lost; I want something the nook connects to, even if that does make it a little bulkier.) I'm also on a budget (very small grant) so can't really afford the $25 or $35 (or more) covers.
(If I could get something like the following: http://www.amazon.com/CE-Compass-Cov.../dp/B004A7ZEI2 but for the nook touch instead of the Kindle, I'd be happy.)

Thanks!

Wrap it around toilet paper, duck tape the ends and you're all set. Or better yet, carve out a secret compartment in a thick book and use that as a cover.

But seriously, do you plan on playing a few rounds of table tennis now and then with it? If not, a sleeve (to keep off the dust) should be fine. What royal flip cases? Come on.
