    It would take a lot of R&D to what people actually use ahah.

    Are you looking for a padfolio with space for pens and cards? A Knife? A MT? A Kitchen sink?

    Kitchen sink would not work unless I could also pack water into it..
    Nahh, what I really want is a simple notepad holder with attachment for holding pens (maybe 2 or 3), no zipper closure, that's bazonkas weird, I'd prefer either a velcro tab closure or maybe a button..

    I guess what I'm looking for is a Saddle back leather notepad holder in wallet forgiving 1000D..Cheap and dirty, that's the name of the game when you have 5 mouths to feed, you know...more than once a week.

    I would like to be able to slide a rite-n-the rain 3x5 memo pad in behind my VIC.(between the belt loop layer and MY compartment. At work I use a light, MT, and pen/pencil. It'd be great to have a place for the paper, too.

    Just sayin'

    I planned on bringing it up when I'm ready to buy another:)

    I am working on one called the "command post", A friend who works at GE turbines wants one for his phone, a 3x5 note pad, a sharpie/pen/ and a flashlight to check stuff.

    Just give me a bit :)

    SkinthCB (Command Post) I like it!

    When you said "I am working on one...Just give me a bit", did you run back to the machine to put it together? How come when you said that I felt like pics were gonna' show up before the day is out?

    You know, with some minor mods that could be made into a pretty cool Skinth for reporters and us photojournos.

    Just curious, are you able to make gear with clear plastic windows on the front, like for an ID or a press pass? Nobody makes a good holder for the tall passes many sporting events issue.

    Uh-oh...better get in on the ground floor now. Soon may be an IPO, with all this interest/traffic.
    Just don't farm the labor out to some really humid spot on our earth.

    I'll need some dimensions of the longer passes, the ones I used to get were about 3x5, that may have changed.

    I want to call it.....The Stadium Ninja?

    The ones I've got handy are about 3.25 x 6.25, but they're both from the same track. I'll have to look around and see if any of my others are different, and how the sizing is for sports I don't shoot. The sleeves I have for mine are about 7.5 x 4.5 and those must be a standard product so I can't imagine too many passes are bigger.

    At this size, the product for these passes would have to be a standalone thing, they're too big for a Skinth I think. But the other kind of passes, the "hard card" type that are issued for the year or by papers, are credit-card sized and could easily be integrated, and the 3x5 type ones that tradeshows and some other events used might be able to as well.

    One other feature a photog-oriented Skinth has to have is a huge belt loop to fit over a Think Tank or similar modular system belt. Best would be if the loop was actually a flap with some sort of secure velcro at the bottom, which is how all the pouches normally go on with these systems. Maybe it'd make sense to put a secondary loop for normal belts underneath the big velcro one.
