Neoprene like the Belkin sleeve at Target, but has a pocket on each side at the grey stripe. Have a BT mouse, BT GPS, and the power cord on one side, external drive on the other. Doesn't look square in their pics, but it is. It has a velcro strap inside to hold it down. There's enough room on the sides to leave my (temporary) Cirago BT dongle in the USB port.

HTH!

I've been using mine for a couple months and really like it a lot. But I like variety, so I'll probably look for another case/bag to use in addition.

Well I'm on my 3rd case now, the two previous were slip cover but I needed something to fit all of my accessories too, so I ended up picking up the Targus DVD301 from Walmart for $18.00. The one I got looks a little bit different than the one on the website. So far I am very happy it fits the Mini with about 1/2" of extra space on the sides but is has a velcro strap to hold it in place. I have room in the case for my external DVD drive, usb cable, power adapter, headphones, and room to spare. It also comes with straps to mount it on the backside of the seat in a car if you want since it was designed for a portable dvd player.

I got tired of trying to find what I wanted. Plus I am too cheap to buy something if I can make it myself with stuff I already have around. My secondary hobby is sewing so I happen to have velcro and cordura hanging out. It fits the Mini 9, 30w power adapter, external optical drive and the USB cable. It's actually my first attempt at a bag and as a bonus, I got to learn quite a bit of stuff about gear making.

The lighting is actually rather poor, as are my camera skills. The material is Olive Drab 1000D Cordura with a DWR coating. Both the main pocket and the outer pouch are lined with black fleece.

Nice!
Not many of us here could do that, although I did get a "B" in home economics 100 years ago.

I think I will. I really prefer roomy bags that offer enough protection as well as space to take along extras. Wouldn't mind it having been available in blue, but black works too. Thanks!

This is a great idea - but I think I'd want to put in some padding, some kind of foam - maybe a thin closed-cell foam like they use in those portable stadium seat pads. It would have to be thinner, though, and I'm not sure how you would slice one of the seat pads into thinner pieces. Have to think about this for awhile. Thanks for the idea!

Can't get much cheaper than $3.48 with shipping.
Dimensions: 10.24 in x 7.87 in x 0.1 in

Someone on another forum confirmed this is padded well and fits well.

I remembered I have a sling bag I got for free with Coke points. It's 18X13" so there is enough room for mouse, wallet, etc.
