WaterField Designs Gear Pouch
Manufacturer: WaterField Designs
Site: Buy from WaterField Designs (http://www.sfbags.com/products/psp/psp.htm)
Price: $39.00

Overview : The PSP Gear Pouch is made from Ballistic nylon, with padding internally protecting the PSP and other items. The main compartment includes a self tightening pocket, which has enough room for your PSP in a case. Three pockets give you room for game disks, an extra battery and the power supply. There is enough spare room between the sides to carry your power cord, a large spare battery and the manual.

Features :

PSP Gear Pouch - 9.75" x 5" x 2" 4 oz.

Quality/Usability : The concept of this case is pretty much the same as of that of the Capdase Twin Case (http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=23647) that was reviewed. But the Waterfield Pouches take on a whole new look. The cases are made in San Francisco, California..thats right, no overseas manufacturers. Made in the good ole US of A. The PSP Pouches are built from rugged Ballistic nylon, offer ample padding, and secure zippers and seams. Each case has two handy loops for easier carrying or for strapping to your backpack or messenger bag - one vertical loop and one horizontal loop. Both cases (Gear Pouch and Mini Gear Pouch) come in a variety of colors and are priced just as you'd expect.

The Gear Pouch measures - 9.75" x 5" x 2". It is the perfect size for those of us who want to bring along more than just our PSP. The pouch features a padded and lined compartment for your PSP; a main compartment for the AC adapter, power cord and USB cable; slots for UMD games, movies and more; and a zippered front compartment with various slots for things like Memory Sticks and miscellaneous. The case offers so much room that you can fit other items such as your wallet, cash, coins and even spare AA/AAA batteries for your CD player or digital camera. Whats even more of a shocker is that you can place your PSP into a Logitech PlayGear case (if you own own) and still be able to place it inside the Gear Pouch. Thats how much room there is!

Conclusion : This is probably one of the nicest cases out there. Nothing too fancy and nothing too boring. It does its job and probably more. You dont have to hold your PSP and accessories in here, you can use it for other items such as your digital camera or other electronics, but than whats the point of calling this a PSP Gear Pouch? The sizes of the pouch may turn consumers head away because it does kind of look like a clutch bag that your girlfriend or mother would carry around in their hands. But if you want a nice case to hold your PSP and accessories all in one place, than thats the price we'll have to pay.
