best keyboard for traveling

Hi, How are you?

Can I ask a quick question?

As you know, I am using a Microsoft Sculpt keyboard. I have three of them for office, home, and even traveling or any other cases.

It is a bit bulky to carry, but I cannot use my laptop keyboard anymore. It is so tiring.

MS sculpt KB + Xah Flykey are my savor for daily work.


it's hard to say which is the best for traveling.

i think one of the following might suit your needs:

i'd favore the kinesis Freestyle Edge if you don't find it too bulky.

x-bows is great except it isn't split, and is flat.

Mistel is good except it doesn't have physical number keys and no F1 keys.
