Padded PDA Case

Sun Oct 15, 2000 - 7:54 PM EDT - By James Hromadka

Size & Conclusion

This case is significantly larger than the Visor, and although that adds protection, you may find yourself removing the Visor from the case during use.  You can also hold the case like a book and use the Visor that way.  There are enough pockets in this case so that you could conceivably use it as a wallet or purse replacement.

Case closedAnother nice thing about this case is there's extra room for longer modules like the InfoMitt.  I do wish, however, that there was an external pocket as unzipping a case takes a little longer than undoing a snap, and I like to get to small papers quickly.  This is a generic PDA case designed for all organizers, but it would have been nice if Brenthaven would have sewn in a Visor hard cover and forgone velcro completely.


The Brenthaven Padded PDA case is for the practical person that wants protection for their Visor but doesn't mind having to use velcro.  This ballistic nylon case is more expensive than some of the other canvas cases, but the extra protection makes it worth it.
