    Default Just a cheap zip up pouch?

    Any recommendations for a cheap pouch to put the N7 in?

    Mostly want it so I can throw the N7 into my suitcase/backpack when travelling. Doesn't need to provide too much protection, just to keep scratches at bay.

    You could always point your browser to amazon.com and type in: nexus 7 pouch

    Do you mean Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more ? If so, wow. That's a pretty neat website. They seem to have a lot of stuff. Is it a reputable online store?....

    Anyway. Thanks Dr. Obvious. I was looking more for people's real impressions here with their N7. A lot of cases on Amazon are all over the map, with a lot of them having no input and a lot more of them filled with people talking about how their kindle fire fits.

    I just bought this, it comes tomorrow so I can't comment on it, but it sounded perfect for my needs: Amazon.com: 7 Inch Tablet Zip Sleeve Premium Cover Case Bag for Google Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle Fire, Nook Color and 16:9 Tablet (Green): Computers & Accessories

    Also, this Kindle case (the one I use for my KKeyboard) fits pretty well, but it's not perfect: Belkin Grip Kindle Sleeve F8N518BKW - Black/White in Accessories for iPads and E-book Readers | JR.com

    You should definitely look into igadgitz. Amazon.com: igadgitz Black EVA Travel Hard Case Cover Sleeve for Google Nexus 7 Android 4.1 Tablet 8GB 16GB: Electronics

    This is a nice zip up pouch. I think the price went up a few bucks, but this is worth it. You can secure your tablet with the velcro straps and put any accessories on the side pouch. I do warn you, putting your charger plus the tablet might cause the pouch to have a harder time zipping up.
    I can fit my Nexus 7 while it's in the poetic slimline case along with one otg cable, an external hard drive, and its cord in this one pouch. Talk about portability and protection. Lol
    The inside is covered in a thin layer of cushion. The outside has a hard shell. I feel safe dropping my nexus 7 while its in this case/pouch though.

    jeez... I am hesitant to even reply after that, but what the heck.

    I have this one in, and use it pretty much as you intend to use one. Let me know if you want any pictures, but it is identical to the user posted image on there.

    I wish they had pink when I ordered mine though

    I have this one

    I used it for a little while before I got the Poetic Slim. I thought it was pretty good, though the outside is fuzzy & picks up lint & stuff over time.

    I do like the look of this pouch.

    Let me ask you, do you think it would also hold a pair of these LG BT headphones in the mesh on the other side? The headphones are about 1.5x as thick as the N7.

    Having a pouch that would protect the headphones at the same time would be nice.

    Well, I cannot say it would or wouldn't fit because I do not know the exact size of those headphones. With that being said, I have tried to put a few things to test what the pouch can hold.

    I did a few tests to see what can the pouch hold.
    First, I put the Nexus 7 in a poetic slimline case then I put that into this pouch. I then put the wall charger into the inside pouch and I was unable t fully zip up the pouch. Only both sides can zip.
    After that didn't work, I put the naked nexus 7 back into the straps faced down(to save the screen from damage from the other items inside the pouch). Once again, I put the wall charger along with its cord inside the pouch and viola, it zipped right up, but with a bit of pressure from the zippers pressing the charger onto the nexus 7. That's why I had it faced down.
    After that worked, I stuffed my 2.5mm portable external hard drive with its cord and an otg cable and zipped everything up. Sure, it feels kind of tight with all those things inside, but I think it wouldnt be a problem.

    Now, if your headphones are smaller in width than the Asus wall charger, then it will fit inside. Good luck!

    Picked up this one a few week's back:

    Case Logic 7" Zippered Tablet Sleeve - Walmart.com

    Provides decent protection, used it until my Seidio arrived. Most Walmart's should have it in stock.

    I also used this Case Logic case until I got my Moko case. The Case Logic case is well-padded and provides good protection. But I find that my Moko case is more versatile for day-to-day use.

    The OP has probably gotten his pouch/sleeve but I use this one. Like it a lot as the side pouch holds a charger, USB cable and OTG adapter. Paid about $14 for it. This not the same case as the Walmart one.

    Personally, I prefer using my N7 bare so the fancy cases with folding covers don't do it for me.

    This isn't what you're looking for, but I figured I should put it out there: the dollar tree has neoprene pouches that fit the N7. They're pretty thin and don't have any mechanism for closure, but I snagged one anyway for when I need something cushiony instead of a hard case. Every time I drop by the dollar store, I feel like a kid inside FAO Schwartz lol.

    I have this one for obvious reasons
    Amazon.com: LSU iPad Sleeve: Sports & Outdoors

    but found it on Ebay for 1/10th the price ($4)
    fits the Nexus 7 perfectly

    I actually did end up getting this one for about $10 on amazon. I like the small zip pocket on the side. It works well to hold a small charger, headphones and OTG cable/USB flash drive.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
