Smile Hard case for travel

Hi,

Does anyone here know of a good 'hard shell' type case for the Vox? I'm thinking of something similar to the one I use for my 2.5" portable hard drive, with internal straps, maybe a pouch for leads etc.

I need one that'll take the Vox while it's in it's leather book cover.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

I think every case requirement you've described is covered by the one discussed in this thread:

I notice it was either Best Buy or Future Shop that had a nice leather cover, but I think more towards what you are looking for is at Walmart where they have their travel laptop etc bags, and they have a nice small one that might be perfect for Vox with room for a bit more. ($20) Take a look

I don't think you need one, especially if it's already in a leather case. As they don't have the fragile eInk screen, they are pretty robust. I dropped mine down a flight of uncarpeted stairs yesterday. Totally undamaged.

Yesterday the cat knocked over the new 32" flat screen TV we got for Christmas and now the picture looks like a kaleidoscope.

I have the one off Ebay. Its okay. I can charge while in case. The stand aspect kinda sucks. But I am happy to have a case when I take it out.

I got a really nice hard leather one from Chapters when I got my Kobo, but it is originally for Blackberry. They are the the same size and fit perfectly.
