Any body actually use the pouch that comes with a memory card?

I suppose these little pouches (external link) would keep the media clean, but I just give these pouches to my kids to play with.

Anyone use them for card storage?

As a matter of fact... the XSi uses SD/SDHC, and they're so small that you NEED the pouches (or, at least, one pouch!).

Yes, until I purchased my Tamrac bag that has the flapped card holders in it.

Yep. I keep an SDHC card and reader in one in my computer bag. For camera cards I use the Pixel Pocket Rocket (external link) or Pee Wee Pixel Pocket Rocket (external link) from ThinkTank.

I really like the ThinkTank CF card holder. I put one on my X-Mas list.

Always. Yes, they serve only to keep the CF cards clean. But then, all it would take is one grain of sand in a card pin hole to royally screw up everything. I have absolutely no desire for a broken pin in a camera CF card socket.

I use these (external link) instead.

I save up the little cases and throw them at little kids down at the mall.

I tossed the plastic cases in a drawer and use mini zip-lock baggies. It lets me pair CF with SD of the same size for convenience. I don't have any cards that came with the fancy keychain pouch you show.

I've only gotten one of those out of the 4 cards I've bought.
I replaced the big card wallet that came with my bag because it was too big.

Yes - it goes into the waist strap pouch of my Dakine Backpack.

I keep a spare 1Gb card in one for my old 20D that I take to work with me. It saves it rattling around my bag!

I use it so I don't lose my memory cards. I have two right now so I keep at least one in there at all times.

No, I don't use the pouch, I keep my CF cards in the little plastic cases they come with.

Just a few days ago I had to switch cards and it was convenient to keep the full CF card in that little pouch.
