I’m happy to report that, after an extraordinarily long time in R&D and production on this project, I now have completed the Keybrief TKL. It is a pretty limited run (100 per style), but it is currently available and shipping.
This bag is Made in the USA, primarily in California and is about as nerdily custom as it gets. There is an option for a modular numpad, which connects via military-style MOLLE loops. It uses calfskin from United Leather in Los Angeles, Made-in-USA Cordura, a soft tech suede lining, and a custom-cast zipper pull made in New England, USA.
It is designed for the Norbaforce and Norbatouch, but should fit pretty much any TKL nicely. If you don’t mind having some extra room in the bag, it should work with <80% board as well.
This video shows a bit of the production of the bags themselves:
And this one the work that goes into making the cast-metal itty-bitty Norbaforce zipper pulls (made by the same high-end jewelry workshop that does my Norbaforce keyrings).
Even though it took forever to design, develop, and produce, this was a really fun project, and I’m happy to answer any questions anyone may have.
Oh, and I also have swappable Velcro patches. I was only medium-happy with the Goldwork patches I got on the Heavy-6 bags, so I found a better vendor and am really happy with the results on this batch.
