Small fly box for dry flies

Anyone got any suggestions for a small fly box which is fairly deep so won't crush my big dry flies. For reference I've got a tacky day box, which is 12.5cms x 7.5cms x 2cms. It's a great size, just not deep enough to take larger flies. I basically want something small I can drop in my back pocket for an evening on the river

look well used boxes, just have to watch the spring latch,s on the see through find you can very easily get them twisted
but still great aged and well made box (y)

Yes it has been well used but loved, I've just checked all the latches and windows the latches are all nice and straight and all the windows pop open.
A fine example 😊

Well better float as I have just brought one on your head if it does not !
it does Dave, waterproof seals, nice deep compartments and silicone inserts, good positive lock, you won’t be disappointed, if you are I’ll take it off you.

I've grown increasingly fond of these. They'small and light, don't rust and you can either stick them in your pocket or around your neck with the lanyard.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'd looked at the Richard Wheatley boxes, but they're not cheap at all. But they do tick the boxes I think. Maybe something for my birthday.
