I've been using MoFi inner sleeves for some time 90% of my records have these. However they are expensive. I've just picked up some HDPE sleeves which are much thicker at 90 microns compared to the MoFi ones and at £7 for 100 much cheaper.

Bags XL if anyone is interested however they have just put the price back up to £16.34 per pack inc VAT.

Sleeve City has the best quality I have found. I have bought from Bags Unlimited in the past for inner and outer sleeves and Wasn't too happy with the quality. I have been slowly changing out all of my inner and outer sleeves to these products since discovering them. Nothing better... Incredible customer service also. You can request samples before you buy (I did) The outer sleeves are as clear as a pane of glass makes your artwork pop.

Happy tracking,

I'll second these. Every album I have rests safely inside one. Wouldn't use anything else.

I use these:

Get them in qty of 50 from a local vinyl store at a lower cost than what's on the website.

Those look pretty good, Bob...And the price isn't too bad! And I don't know why I hadn't seen those before! That's one nice thing about Bags Unlimited...They are coming up with new products all the time! 8)

+1 on that. The key difference between these and the mofi sleeves is that they have a bit more substance to them and it makes it much easier to get the record into it. Compare the two side by side and you'll see what I mean. I'd recommend Sleeve City every day of the week and twice on Sundays. :wink:

Vino's point on the outer sleeves is also well-taken. The artwork pops better than with the mofi outers. I'm a fan.

Two different ones I use. Diskeeper 2.0 for the majority of my records.

And the Taguchi Round LP Inner Sleeves. They are super thin. So thin you can use it in the original paper sleeve. I use those when I can't store the record in an outer jacket as well. Compilation albums mostly. Reader's Digest multi packs. Or the 5LP Springsteen Live set. i just used those to store them in their original box.

Nagaoka for me... Not really familiar with any others. These anti static sleeves do what they're labelled to do, and that's to keep my records free from static. I've an LP12 with a felt mat - if I play a record from a non antistatic sleeve, I always have to peel off the mat, when changing or turning the record.
