Remember when we reported last week that WaterField Designs was creating the Analogue Pocket Pouch? Well, the bag maker is back a week later with the Analogue Pocket Pack, "a folio-style case that organizes and protects the Analogue Pocket console, dock, power brick, cords, cartridge adapters, and extra games."
Costing a meaty $129, the Analogue Pocket Pack boasts the following features:
- Opens on three sides to lie flat like a book.
- Four, padded interior pockets protect the console, cartridge adapters, and the Dock.
- Four semi-opaque, mesh, interior pockets stow games and cords.
- Internal foam padding on the front and back protects contents.
- A golden-lined front pocket holds extra games, a USB-C cord, and a power supply.
- Smooth-gliding YKK zippers open with custom-metal zipper pulls that overlap to take a lock if desired.
- A Rear quick-grab handle facilitates a hand carry.
- Optional add-ons: a carabiner, a wrist strap, and/or a sling strap with an adjustable matching cam-lock.
- A water-resistant shell in ballistic nylon or high-performance Forza textile in three colors conveys a modern, professional look.
- Designed and handcrafted in WaterField’s San Francisco sewing studio to incorporate customer input gathered from emails, social media, and a company-generated survey.
Given the high cost of the Analogue Pocket, we can't blame owners for wanting the very best storage option for their new baby. But is 130 bucks too much for your taste? Let us know with a comment.
I can definitely admit that It is very nice - it's not worth the price for me but I think it can justify its cost if the quality holds up.
Personally, I think a nice HDD case works well for the pocket - something like this one seems to cushion it well: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08DLHKL2S
But what we really need are good third-party screen-protectors. I foolishly ruined mine trying to straighten it out after applying it slightly crooked. I don't fancy spending $16 to get another one (literally one) from Analogue (to be delivered in 2023). I tried one from Brotect but the ones they sell are anti-glare matte glass that is not fully transparent and smears the image on the Pocket's beautiful screen. We need more options for those kinds of accessories.
Who would pay this kind of money for a dam bag? Smdh
I love Waterfield stuff. be Its worth every penny you pay
I modded a GBA with less money
@huyi The person in your profile picture probably has spent a lot more.
Kinda defeats the purpose of it being portable and small. It's like if I bought a bag just to carry my phone.
It costs almost as much as the analogue pocket !
I got the smaller 50 dollar one. This thing kind of defeats the purpose of having a game boy
I never carry my consoles around but it seems like a very safe pouch.
@mattmanvsuperman why are you always being so negative about portable emulation and products shown on Nintendo life
@mattmanvsuperman just because you don’t like a price doesn’t mean you have to say “this company can kiss my @$$” that’s just being extra for a product that you don’t have to buy like if there’s cheaper stuff on Etsy just buy those no reason to leave a rude comment
@mattmanvsuperman if they’re doing that just spread some light about it if you just make mean comments people are gonna listen to the company instead and waste their money like you can go to a sub Reddit and talk about cases that are a better price like the rg351v case I’m sure it would be a good fit
@mattmanvsuperman Is that true (the part about their presence on Reddit)? I went looking but didn't find anything of this nature.
I've been a huge fan of their products for years, but if true, this could very well change that for me.
130 for a well made and designed bag is pretty reasonable. my TIMBUK2 backpack was well over this at regular price, and worth it.
of course id never spend that much personally so i got it on sale for 45 bucks 😎
this bag looks nice. i dont really understand how people think having a bag for it makes it not portable... bags are specifically for carrying around portable things. if its not portable it wont fit in the bag. if the bag isnt bigger than the thing, its too small for the thing.
It's a nice looking case. Not $129 nice tho.
I'm surprised to hear they've been making negative comments on reddit. Would like to see what's been said. I've used their products for years and they last like pretty much nothing else I've bought. Yes they are expensive, but they are premium quality. Not sure I'll be getting this one but I think the smaller case might do when my Pocket eventually arrives. If they had a case like this which took a switch and a Pocket it would be cool.
