With the launch of the Keyboard Quiver, a new, ergonomic keyboard case, Dust-Off is reshaping the landscape of competitive gaming and gives gamers the ability to stay organized while on-the-go. Designed specifically for active gamers, the Keyboard Quiver provides an added level of protection for the essential tools of the gaming trade, including a keyboard, mouse, headphones, cables, power cords and even MP3 players, and keeps the equipment safe and game-ready.
"The Quiver is the first bag specifically designed to meet the needs of competitive gamers," said Ken Newman, Director of Marketing for Falcon Safety Products, manufacturer of the Dust-Off brand. "Through our partnership with the World Cyber Games, we had an opportunity to work closely with professional gamers on the development of a product that would meet what we saw as an urgent need for the protection of sensitive and expensive gaming gear. Throughout the design process of the Quiver, we worked side-by-side with Dust Off sponsored Team X30 and incorporated many of their suggestions into the Quiver's final design. Essentially, the Quiver is designed by gamers for gamers."
Measuring 21"x12"x6", the Keyboard Quiver is manufactured from a heavy-duty cotton canvas and features a single, over-the-shoulder strap that can be fitted for left or right handed use. For added comfort the strap is padded, and to keep a gamer connected while on the move, the strap also features a pouch designed to hold a cell-phone or PDA. The outside of the Keyboard Quiver features three main zippered compartments. The zippered pocket on top of the case can hold a MP3 player and also features a headphone slot. The upper compartment can hold a mouse or other personal effects and the bottom compartment is designed to hold a set of headphones. The bottom compartment is also expandable, via a second zipper, to fit larger sized, bulkier headphones or additional gear.
The interior of the Keyboard Quiver features adequate room for the gear most important to a gamer, including a large padded section with two straps to keep a keyboard safe and secure. Additional compartments include a mesh pocket for cables and other accessories, bands to hold cleaning accessories such as Dust Off keyboard dusters, and slots to hold CDs, DVDs or game discs.
