Usually, when you buy a memory card, it comes in a small plastic case which is perfect for protecting the card when flung in a bag and stops dust and dirt hitting the elements.
The trouble is, when you start to have several memory cards, they get lost, you can't work out what ones are used and which aren't and it's handy just to keep them all in one place.
I was attracted by the 7Dayshop memory card case as I liked it's smooth brushed satin finish and it looks like those metal cases used to carry around film and photographic equipment. It measures W11cm x D7cm x H2 cm.
It's a simple clamshell design with 8 slots for SD cards, used by most cameras currently on the market. Inside, the interior is made from a dark grey rubber material and cards push in to exact sized slots. As a handy way of establishing which cards have been used, I usually put them back in the case with the front label faced forward.
The case feels very strong, but the clasp and hinge are made from plastic. The hinge is actually just a thin piece of folded plastic and I'm wondering how many instances of opening and closing the case will take before it starts to come apart. The front clasp is secure, but also feels cheap.
Despite this, it will hold my memory cards well and will protect them in the case of them being dropped. I don't have high hopes of it lasting a very long time, but for £4.27 if it lasts a couple of years I'll be satisfied.
The case is advertised as being water resistant, and I'm sure it would be fine if held under the rain for a little while, but in an ideal world, I'd be able to get one which is sealed and waterproof - you never know when you could drop it in a puddle, destroying all your videos and photos. I'd also want a case with a better quality hinge and lock. It sounds small, but the contents on the cards can be pretty precious to me! Perhaps there'll be a more indestructable one on the market by the time this one breaks. Tick tock...
