Recommendation for compact travel mechanical keyboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

As per the title, looking for a mechanical keyboard thats compact that I can travel to LAN parties with, and put in my carry on for plane trips with my Ghost S1 case.


I liked the look and design of the Vortex Race 3 Aluminium, but looks like they are no longer in production and sold out everywhere.



Can anyone recommend something similar?


Will be paired with a corsair M65 pro mouse in white.

I use the, Hyper X - Allow Fps Pro, i'm sure it will be more than compact enough to travel with.

That's a 75% layout. The KBDFans KBD75 is an option. You have lots of options to customise it, and you'll have to get keycaps separately. For the switches, check out the Zealios, if you want a really nice, tactile, non clicky switch. Another good option is the Box Royal. Just don't get the Cherrys, as they are probably the worst and most overpriced option there (maybe except for the MX Clear?).

Might as well add the link, since I already have it open.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)


Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)


Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

Thanks Guys,


I've had a look at each of the options listed and in my travels I found a vortex race in stock so I snapped it up.


Thanks again.
