      I bought this for my new Verbatim Acclaim 1TB USB hard drive, which is just a little larger than a deck of cards. This case does a reasonable job, affordably.

      The exterior of the case is "hard," but has some give. While it isn't completely rigid, I'm comfortable it'll protect the drive from minor bumps and drops. Inside, there's a velcro strap to secure the drive, plus a mesh pocket for a cable or other small items.

      There are three types of fastening options on outside of the case: an included removable neckstrap which clips to two metal rings on the sides, a nylon belt loop sewn in on the back, and an included removable medium-size carabiner which attaches to a metal ring at the top of the belt loop. I'm not gonna geek out and wear this case; I bought it to keep in my laptop bag or carry-on luggage while traveling. I guess it's nice to have these options if you're gonna do outdoorsy stuff or adventure travel, however.

      While shopping for cases online, it wasn't that easy to figure out which one would best fit my drive. Interior measurements of cases (and exterior specs of drives -- I shopped for both at the same time) aren't always clear and uniform on shopping and manufacturer websites. Even with the velcro strap as snug as possible, my drive slides around inside a little. There's also about an inch of extra interior length space, but I guess case manufacturers aren't keeping up 100% with the latest compact hard drives. I use a cloth wrapped around the drive to help keep it in place. Not a perfect fit, but I can live with it.

      This really is a wonderful case, it is very sturdy and can hold all the cables and even some extras like a power-point remote and a key-chain drive or two.

      But it does not fit the Lacie Portable Rugged, even though it was listed in the accessories for that product.

        Perfect fit for the Western Digital My Passport Studio drive. The drive itself fits well into the strap side, and two or more cables fit just as well into the mesh side. Solid build.

              This product is truly amazing I keep my Seagate hardrive in here and if dropped to the floor, I know it is 100% safe since this case is just super durable and nicely padded on the inside! It even comes with a compartment on the inside to keep things like small cables, USB cards, etc! I would say measure your gear beforehand to see it it'll even fit in the first place as it doesn't fit all size hardrives etc.

                I use it for a few different brands of portable HDs, including seagate 1tb freeagent and my 1tb WD Elements. Fits both fine; strap inside for holding it tight. It has a pocket as well, for your cord and something else such as a dust cloth.

                        My wife has hundreds of baby pictures of our twins. We use the Seagate FreeAgent Go for backup. I like to keep the drive in my office in case of fire at home. And this case gives the drive some nice protection when it rides in my briefcase.

                              Great little case for the price. Fits my Wolverine ESP media player, which I bought for extra photo storage space on an upcoming 10 day camping trip and it should work great in protecting the player and room for an extra battery.

                                This really is a wonderful case, it is very sturdy and can hold all the cables and even some extras like a power-point remote and a key-chain drive or two.

                                But it does not fit the Lacie Portable Rugged, even though it was listed in the accessories for that product.

                                  I originally bought the case for a small hard drive, but found out it was a perfect fit for my GPS, at about half the price of a GPS case.

                                    Great case for both of my small hard drives. The hard shell is great for when I am moving them around and it is small and lightweight.

                                      I use the shell/case to protect my external hard drive from liquids, falling, etc.
                                      If I were to change one thing about it I would make it waterproof.

                                      I bought this product along with an Iomega 250GB Portable Hard Drive. It does not fit the external hard drive.

                                      It seems like a very good, sturdy, quality case. Just make sure it fits what you want to keep in it.
