the Keybrief 60


A Diminutive Keybrief. Made in California.

This keyboard carry brief, handmade here in California, was specifically designed to fit my Heavy-6 housing, but it is compatible with a wide range of similarly-sized (60% and smaller) keyboards. It is a scaled-down version of my popular Keybrief TKL.

"The Norbauer bag is fucking awesome. There’s leather in all the right places. Padding where there needs to be. Small touches that scream quality. ... One hell of a nerd purse." 
Beaker on Keebtalk

"outrageously high quality"
Captain Shwah on GeekHack

This version features a soft calfskin leather handle and piping, a water-resistant ballistic nylon shell, and closed-cell-foam padding around all faces. The bag also has an interior zippered pocket for holding USB cables and/or tools, soft gray tech suede lining, seat-belt style webbing, polished gunmetal strap slider and zipper, and military-style snap hooks. It is perfect for holding built Heavy Grail and Heavy-6 keyboard housings.

The hand-embroidered patch at the front features my Portcullis maker's mark and is sewn directly to the bag. This style of metal-wire hand-embroidery is an ancient handicraft of India, which eventually made its way to Europe to become a traditional part of French and British military regalia and liturgical vestments.
