OK. I've subscribed on anticipation of chinasso replying with a delivery date ;-)
No pressure though.
Are they ready yet?

I've started working on some low cost but nice looking alternatives for gear protection. Right now I have 2 light weight metal options I'm fine tuning, a plastic one and a cheaper foam option. Hoping to have completed prototypes by next weekend.

Hmmm that stuff looks WAY thicker (and therefore heavier) than it needs to be. But I like the idea a lot.

I still like the clear acrylic better. :)

Seriously, the bottle cap is probably better cuz it would flex a bit, unlike that heavy acrylic. Nice job chinasso!

Though it does seem as the cap might cause airflow problems? Howz it fly?
