Camera Card reader pouch?
Another thing I occasionally haul with my laptop (or at least from one computer to another) is a small, lightweight USB camera card reader I bought about 4-6 years ago at Sam's Club. It's one of those Stratatec 15-in-one jobbies, that can handle any of several kinds of cards. This is useful because I use an Olympus that dates back to 2001, and I know other folks with different kinds of cams that I swap images with.
Here's a picture of the pouch I use now:
It is wayyyyyy too big, and consumes way too much space. Still it offers plenty of pedding and room for at least one good USB cable. I'd like to find something padded that's big enough to house the reader and at least one good-sized cable, but small enough to make it useful for travel purposes.
It might also be nice if the mystery item had a hidden pocket for camera card media.
