    hey guys,

    i am using this usb-stick https://www.sandisk.com/home/usb-flash/ultra-fit and i am pretty happy. but i wanna have it close to me. ideally at all times. i dont wanna put it on my keys because i am using a shackle.

    i have no space for it. besides that, i wanna protect it so it doesn't get hit and damaged. so was looking for a titanium capsule, as small as possible, just enough space to fit it in. i can't find any. most are too slim with around 11,5mm inner diameter or really really big. A perfect solution would be capsule small enough to carry it around my neck.
    do you have any ideas? is there anyone who can make me one? i would prefer titanium ;)

    would be great to hear your thoughts on this and see if there are any solutions already.

    I carry rugged USB sticks and don't have to worry about it.
    Not yet at least.

    OP mentioned carrying via a necklace or lanyard around his neck. So my suggestion here won't be what he wants.

    However.... for a pocket or a bag, I'm a big fan of repurposing prescription 'bottles'. Lightweight, usually with a reasonably dust proof cap.

    Just thought I'd toss it out there.

    L'chaim!

    I have been carrying these EDC on a Keychain for a few years now and they have been through all forms of terror and have been flawless.
    So I have to wonder why try to find something bulky when you can just carry rugged in the first place?

    What about using a USB stick which is protected already like the Flash Survivor or the black Flash Survivor Stealth from Corsair? Dimensions too big?
    There was another one from LaCie - the XtremKey - but as I know it's discontinued.

    Off subject from the original post, but these look like they'd be perfect for my hearing aids when I have to take them off while away from home. Thanks.

    I have a couple of the knockoff from ebay and like them. I find the $9 a box shipped off there hard to swallow dang sure aint paying $21 plus shipping.

    In the meantime I got the Corsair USB-stick and I really like it. A tough case but big dimensions also.
