    All of my Steelbooks are in plastic sleeves from Bags Unlimited. The ones you linked are DVD size. Bags Unlimited has resealable sleeves specific to Blu-ray size (though they call it "HD-DVD"). It's a nice, snug fit.

    Really helps protect the cases from scratches, which they are unfortunately prone to, especially when you slide them between other cases on and off your shelf.

    Also came across this one while reading - Shipped to U.S. about $30 for 25 but they're hard sleeves.

    So Josh, I know you've probably got 300+ steelbooks, have you see where they're too thick to fit in the bags and essentially rip them ?

    I haven't had that problem, though I do have a couple of jumbo size SteelBooks (Up and Monsters Inc) that I can't put in sleeves.

    I just counted, and I only have 145 SteelBooks/MetalPaks/etc. Alice in Wonderland on the way will be 146.

    I ordered a couple hundred of the Bags Unlimited HD-DVD bags for my steelbooks. I chose to order 200 because with just 100 I'd have been charged an extra $4 anyway (about 1/4 of the price of 100). I'm set, probably for life. With 200 bags I didn't get any shipping charge, which was surprising to me. I guess they have a Canadian distro.

    Not sure how many steels I have currently, but almost certainly less than 50.

    I will have one Metal case that won't fit in the bags, and that's the Special Edition Snowpiercer set which will come some time or other >_> Ordered it about 7 days ago.

    I've been fortunate not to get any dinged/dented cases. Maybe one minor one, but that's about it. I'd not like to push my luck in the scratch department, especially as I get more steels and they end up side-by-side in my collection.

    $16 for 100 bags is pretty steep when compared to the other options. Ouch.

    There may be cheaper options out there. At the time I bought them, these were the only ones I found that were Blu-ray size. That was a while ago, though.

    I ended up not getting Bags Unlimited bags. Seems that they add shipping after the fact (though they don't charge you for them automatically in that case).

    That would have resulted in shipping over $20. I need good Canadian option for bags >_>

    EDIT: Actually it seems they DID charge for the initial order. Going to have to call to get it back, lovely ~_~
