I'm trying to find a good case that'll protect my micro really well. I was looking at some of the cases on Play-Asia.com but I was hoping to find a case that isn't too bulky so I can still fit it in my pocket. Thanks.

the case that came with the costco 60$ bundle package thing (it was in the pelican accessory kit) was pretty nice. i actually wound up using it for my cell phone even more than my micro. it's the perfect size and really soft on the inside... kind of thick padding, so it does fit in your pocket but makes it stick out a little (i broke off the belt clip thing for that reason).

if you can find one, give it a shot. otherwise doesn't the micro come with a little microfiber bag or something?

As am I. I'd love to get something along the lines of those iPod nano cases that are form fitting yet durable (hard, not soft).

It's nice, but cheap it ain't.

JP Page with more photos. I've got the two-tone cream and black and love it. A touch bulky though.

I got a blue "Mesh Pouch Micro" from Play-Asia. I think it's great. It's a bit on the bulky side but it's really light, so it doesn't feel annoying in your pocket. You could throw your gameboy at a wall or person with it, and it would be okay.
Otherwise, I saw GBM "Sox" at Gamestop for $4.99. They seem perfect if you prefer small case size over protection.

I'll second the mesh pouch micro. I got one of those as well and they are about as small as a case can get. Nice protection and as was mentioned, it weighs nothing. And it looks cool :)

Do you guys have any recommendations or suggestions for something a little more form fitting? I'm actually worried more about scratching the metal backside than the faceplate because the latter can be replaced. Anyone have anything to say about the Gameboy Micro Socks? Thanks in advance.
