I am a recent purchaser of my first Apple product, an iPod Touch. I am very happy with it. This is an MP3 player I will use and not allow to quickly become a dust magnet because the user interface is so inadequate. I have had excellent experience with this device and I can stream radio over it. Outstanding!
Now this lead me to a predicament: my shirt pocket is getting too stuffed and heavy. While the Touch is nicely thin, it has a solid feel and weight. Adding it to the already crowded pocket that contains my reading glasses, shirt pocket briefcase, Retro51 Tornado pen, and Moleskine Cahiers, has my pocket shifting the lay of my shirt and bulging just enough that I want to add an acceptable solution. Now I could of course move all these items to my Cafe bag but some things I like to have upon my person.
I considered a Side Effect as a solution, but what I want is something that is essentially a portable shirt pocket on steroids. One that hangs from a neck strap. This will allow me to have all these items at the ready, but also allow me to transfer them about with ease. The best fit for my need I think is the passport pouch. But, ultimately what I want is something without a zipper, some padding for the iPod Touch, a small dedicated pocket to hold ear buds, and a slot for my pocket briefcase/cahiers/pen combo. The glasses can stay in the shirt pocket. This pouch would also be helpful for wearing shirts that don't have a pocket. Why shirts are even made without a pocket is another matter altogether. I plan on ordering the passport pouch in Steel when it is available in March. I'd still like a more dedicated/specific pouch as my portable shirt pocket on steroids.
Input, ideas? Does anyone else have a similar need? Tnx all. :)
