If you happen to’re fortunate sufficient to personal an Analogue Pocket you then could be considerably intimidated by the sheer vary of storage choices obtainable proper now. Analogue has its personal hard-shell plastic case, however WaterField Designs now has three totally different selections on provide: the Pack, the Pouch and – extra just lately – the CitySlicker, an Analogue Pocket-sized tackle one among its hottest merchandise.
Like earlier variations of the CitySlicker design, one of many large promoting factors of this case is the leather-based flap which is secured through a hidden magnet on the entrance. This makes opening and shutting the case easy, nevertheless it does additionally imply that it is simpler for potential thieves to realize entry to the Analogue Pocket if you’re not paying full consideration. Nonetheless, the CitySlicker is designed to take a seat throughout your physique, so that you ought to have the ability to spot if any unwelcome fingers make a seize to your valuable FPGA-powered funding. As you’ll be able to see from the photographs on this web page, the pattern we had been despatched has the white/black leather-based flap, however different color choices can be found.
The ‘ultrasuede’ inside gives a fairly tight grip on the console, too, which implies it is unlikely to slip out when the bag is the wrong way up. This lining additionally prevents the Analogue Pocket from getting scratched or marked if you take it out and in, defending the machine even additional.
On the entrance, there is a small pocket which is roofed by the leather-based flap when closed, and this can be utilized to retailer a spare cartridge or cable. The again has a bigger compartment which is secured with a self-locking zipper. This implies you’ve got received extra space for storing than you’ve with the WaterField Analogue Pocket Pouch, however not as a lot as is afforded by the roomy Analogue Pocket Pack.
We discovered that the 2 compartments had been simply about appropriate to hold round our Recreation Boy / Recreation Boy Advance flash cart, Recreation Gear flash cart and Recreation Gear adapter, nevertheless it’s an awfully tight match. Likelihood is, most individuals will simply need to carry round a spare cart and maybe a charging cable, so the CitySlicker can be simply tremendous.
The pattern we had been despatched by WaterField got here with a carabiner, however that is an non-obligatory accent at $3 – as are the wrist strap ($15) and shoulder ‘sling’ strap ($19). When you think about that the CitySlicker is $79 by itself, it is a disgrace that you just’re not getting a ‘full’ carry answer; we would wish to have not less than seen the sling strap included at that worth.
As with all of WaterField’s merchandise, the CitySlicker is premium high quality at a premium worth. We dare say you could possibly simply choose up one other generic (and cheaper) carry case that can fit your Analogue Pocket, but when cash isn’t any object and also you need one thing that stands out on the road, then it is a stable possibility.
Due to WateField Designs for supplying the Analogue Pocket ‘CitySlicker’ used on this characteristic.
