Incoming: Military-grade carrying case for the PSP

A new $100 PSP carrying case from TAD Gear claims to be military-grade.

Over the years, we've gotten letters from soldiers stationed in Iraq, and they've talked about how hard the place is on electronics gear--and I'm not talking bullets and bombs, but just the raw elements (dust, sand, and so on...). Well, I just noticed this item on PSP Fan Boy: a $100 military-style PSP case from TAD Gear that claims to be military-grade. A note on the siteabout the PSP Pod reads:

"This is a very special, limited custom run of nylon accessory pouches. These PSP Pods were produced at the request of some our associates and customers deployed overseas. The Sony PSP has become a common sight in many a soldiers' kit these days. The PSP has become ideal for personal entertainment for many while in transit or stuck at barracks. This is built with MILSPEC construction and materials thru-out. There is no sturdier, better built, and versatile storage pouch for the PSP available anywhere. TAD Gear is not a video game store, but we clearly see the merits of the PSP as a personal electronic device and wanted to offer this very special case to carry yours. Due [to] the high cost of production it is highly unlikely we will produce these again."

A hundred bucks is a lot to spend on a case, but it looks pretty sweet, and I suspect a few civilian commuters might pick one up for that rough train or bus ride between the 'burbs and the big city.
