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.

motion LED lights. nice Buy at amazon
