Memory Stick Cases

For Memory Sticks, CardCaboodle and Triple Take are good choices to keep your Memory Sticks safe and easy to find. CardCaboodle is made of thick plastic with a contoured outer case and rubber liner inside. It holds 4 Memory Sticks in compartmentalized slots, so your Memory Sticks won’t slide around inside the case. It shuts with a secure latch and it’s about 2.63" x 2.50" x .75" when closed. The case design is sleek and colorful. You can get two-tone design with different colors on the outer case and the inside liner. If you only carry a couple of Memory Sticks with you, then check out the Triple Take cases. These are single Memory Stick cases that are made in thinner clear plastic compared to CardCaboodle cases, and designed to form fit for your Memory Sticks. The reason it’s called Triple Take is that you can also store a SD card or a MMC card as well. There are ribs on the edge of the case that will hold these cards in place.

SD/MMC, CF and PC Card Cases

There are quite a few good cases for each type of cards. The one we found most versatile is the Universal Field Pack. At size of 4.50" x 3" x .88", this case can store up to 4 CF cards and 1 PC card, up to 8 MMC cards with 1 PC card or 3 PC cards. The case is built with strong plastic with two rubber molded CF slots that will fit two Type II CF cards on the bottom and a PC card in the top slot.

If you just want to carry an individual PC card, then check out the Pocket Box and Open End Pocket Box for PC cards. These cases are made of clear Polystyrene and can hold 1 PCMCIA card each. The open ended case has a locking mechanism that will prevent the card falling out of the case accidentally and has a cut out at the mouth of the case for easy access to the card. The Pocket Box has a cover and retention fingers that helps prevent the card from falling out when you open the case.

If you only have small size cards such as SD cards or MMC, you can look at the CardCondo holder. These are not cases but plastic holders that you can slide 4 MMC or SD cards in and the holder will keep them in place securely. The design of the CardCondo is very simple yet quite effective and extremely portable. You can put it in your shirt pocket or strap it onto your camera or MP3 player via the strap cutouts.
