The POD (short for Protective Organizational Device) by HRP Products, Inc. is a molded foam (NitroLyte) case
for your PalmPilot, WorkPad or Palm III. The PDA is held in place by two pieces of Velcro.
The dimensions of the case are: ~ 4.125″ x 5.75″ x 1.375″
The material that the case is made of is a light weight foam. The inside of the case is
lined with a soft Velcro hook compatible material. On one side of the case is a pad of
paper and loop to hold your stylus. The other side is where you attach your Pilot. A
plastic snap holds the clamshell case together.
The POD holds a Pilot or Palm III very well. It will even hold a Palm III with
the plastic flip cover if you remove the pad of paper which is attached to the case with
The POD is a large case. I don’t think I would ever use this as my everyday case.
I prefer something much more compact. HRP Products, Inc. will soon be coming out with a
belt holster for this case. Even with a belt version, I can’t see myself using
it because of its size. But, I think this case would be very useful as a protective travel
type case. It would be a nice weatherproof case…. it might even float if you dropped it
in a lake! As padded as this case is, I wouldn’t even be too worried if I dropped
my Palm III while it was in the case. I think the POD might be a good alternative to
the RhinoSkin Cockpit case. Yes, I know it wouldn’t withstand gunfire or being run over by
a runaway tank, but the POD will protect your Pilot from bumps, short drops, rain, sleet,
and snow. 🙂
Maybe too large to use as your everyday case.
