I used to sell Olympus equipment in a photographic shop Blighty, and I seem to recall that that made a soft black leather lined with velvet (not plastic coated) E.R.C. that you could put in your pocket,when not in use, I remember once ordering one from Olympus for a customer, and thinking how much more useful it was than the normal E.R.C. It may be worthwhile to try and find one.
