I recently reviewed
a Sharp Zaurus specific metal and leather case from
Extreme Limit. Now they have made a
new metal and leather case available. This one is called the Gadget Case. It
looks very similar to the original case, but is marketed as more of a gear case
then an actual PDA case. It can however hold the Zaurus or any other similarly
sized PDA though. Its overall dimensions are: 7 x 4 x 2in.
Made of the same quality materials and construction methods, this case is
available in the following color combinations: Black Italian Leather with Silver
Metal, Black Italian Leather with Black Metal, Black Italian Leather with
Burgundy Metal, or Black Italian Leather with Gold(dark yellow) Metal. I was
sent the Black Italian Leather with Silver Metal version.
I’ve been using this case as a mini gear bag for awhile now, and have found
it to be excellent as far as protection and storage. It is a great organizer for
small PDA related items that you may need to tote around with you during a
typical day. The available storage features are:
Detachable zipper mesh pouch
2 large pockets
2 sub pockets
4 business card /credit card pockets
2 SD card pockets
1 CF card pocket
The zippered pouch is made of a black mesh with black leather ends sewn into
it. It is held in the case with a long strip of Velcro attached to the bottom of
the pouch. This pouch can hold small items such as styli, adapters, etc. If you
remove it, a PDA can fit in this side of the case.
The SD and CF slots have cutouts at the bottom that allow you to easily
remove the cards from their slots.
The other pockets can hold business cards, credit cards etc.
The case is held securely closed with a dual zipper that has leather pull
A leather handle is located on the spine of the case. It can pull up for use
and then lay flat when not in use.
I really like this case! The metal panels keep the case stiff and protect the
contents from crushing while giving it a very classy look. I would love to see
an even larger gear bag made in this same great style.
The only down side to the case is the fact that it is a little pricey. All I
can say is that this isn’t an ordinary case. It is a unique Extreme Limit
offering that reflects the price tag.
Price: 9250 JPY / $75.87
Lots of storage
