Just camera case alone

Does there exist an old school type hard leather case that stays attached or even one of those more modern semi hard case where the k-1 sits inside for easy travel ? I see them for the D750 but it seems a bit small for the body.

Another possibility. I have seen one in a camera store, but have not used one.
They appear well-made.

I use an OpTech neoprene case which works very well. Itís unfortunately not possible to keep it attached to the camera as with the old-style ever-ready case however. Looks like thereís an opportunity for some enterprising company there?

I think these used to be called 'ever ready' cases in general.
However the cranky among us call these 'never ready' cases since they are always buttoned up tight when Elvis walks by.
I bought one like this amazon.com : MegaGear ?tag=pentaxforums-20&"Ever Ready" Protective Leather Camera Case, Bag for Canon PowerShot SX60 HS Digital Camera (Light Brown) : Camera & Photo my kids call it my 'cowboy case'. It's meh.
I now prefer a neoprene stretch case like discussed above or one like NEW Pentax Shoulder Camera Bag Case | eBay that I can hang from my shoulder or tighten up the strap and wear like a belt/holster to embarrass the family.

There are also some neoprene cases that are just for storage (like this one) I have a couple of these, but I don't use them very much. I think I only paid 3 or 4 dollars for them. They are useful to use if you want to just take a camera and lens somewhere without a bag, but have a little protection. You can actually have it on a camera with a sling that attaches to the tripod mount. Or useful to store a camera and lens in a cabinet and keep dust away. I'm not promoting that case in the link, it's just first one I found on ebay.

I looked for one of these for a K5 a while ago, no luck. In the end I got the closest fitting holster case I could find, which was a lowepro. Not quite the style of the old ever ready cases but it did fulfill the small volume criteria.

Someone suggested the Domke wraps as well, which I tried but didn't like.

Thanks. Exactly what I needed. Just something so I am not carrying a loose camera to horse riding and my sisters house.

Look for ever ready cases.

I really recommend a sling-type strap for any action activities. It's much more secure. Whether with the neoprene cover or not - and that's honestly not a bad idea while riding, which can get fairly dusty or muddy.
