    Padded pouch for eyeglasses

    When I got my Side Effect I realized I wouldn't be able to put my hard sunglasses case in it and have much room left over. After checking the forums I decided to try a small padded pouch.

    It's OK. The padding provides sufficient protection since the pouch is in another bag (Side Effect or Ristretto). But the proportions are a little awkward for glasses. When I put my sunglasses (large plastic frames) in I'd like the pouch to be wider, and when I try to take my regular wireframe glasses out I'd like less height. If the dimensions were more like those of eyeglass cases, a padded pouch would be a great way to carry glasses.

    Any chance of having a padded pouch with better proportions for glasses? BTW, in an earlier thread Tom talked about a couple of options for a pouch for sunglasses (zipper or open), and I'd prefer a zipper since I've had eyeglasses fall out of open cases.
