Quality/Usability : Capdase has released their first Wii product. Capdase is well known for the accessories and silicone cases. Included is a wrist strap and silicone case for the Wii remote and Nunchuk.

The soft jacket has a nice thickness to it that feels comfortable in the hands. What is nice about the Soft Jacket is that on the back, there are grooves which allows better grip to your controllers. Besides the grooves on the silicone cases, the soft jacket is slightly different from the rest of the silicone case such as the Wii Silicone Case (http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=48704) and Wii Controller Glove (http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46287) (Official). The silicone cases just mentioned all have holes cut out for each button. Capdase decided to leave silicone over the buttons but have the rubber pop out a little so you can feel where they are. Having the silicone over the buttons still allows you to press the buttons easily without having to dig your finger/nail into the button in order for it to recognize.

Unlike the other cases, Capdase added a little hole at the bottom of the case. This allows you to clip a wrist strap on to the case. Why do you need this? Well, the wrist strap that Nintendo included isnt strong, so Capdase hopes to remedy the situation. The strap has a metal clip that clips on to the bottom of the case. The strap itself is very durable and so is the hole. With this attached, you no longer need to use wrist strap that Nintendo included.

Conclusion : Overall, the Capdase Soft Jacket Silicone Case is a very nice product. The soft jacket feels comfortable in the hands. With the included wrist strap, this gives extra durability. Capdase offers in the Soft Jacket Silicone Case in a variety of colors such as blue, purple, pink, white, black and grey (tinted black).
