WaterField Unveils the Analogue Pocket Pack–an All-in-One Case for the Console and Supporting Accessories – WFMZ Allentown
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — San-Francisco designer and manufacturer WaterField Designs unveils the Analogue Pocket Pack, a handcrafted, all-in-one case for the Analogue Pocket handheld, accessories, and games. After surveying nearly 1,500 Pocket gamers, the company identified a sizable group of respondents who want a case to store and protect their entire Analogue Pocket setup. This compact Analogue Pocket case allows those Pocket gamers to discreetly carry their gaming gear anywhere.
“We learned that a subgroup of gamers plans to carry the Analogue Pocket console along with all its accouterments — multiple games, cartridge adapters, power block, Pocket Dock, and USB-C. We designed this case for them,” said company owner Gary Waterfield. “Inspired by Analogue’s modern redesign of old-school tech, our team loosely based the Pack’s aesthetic on a classic VCR tape. But like the sleek Analogue Pocket, our case uses high-tech materials to create a modern, professional look.”
The Analogue Pocket Pack opens on three sides like a book with smooth-gliding zippers and custom-metal zipper pulls. When open and laid flat, a gamer’s entire system is easily accessible. Four semi-opaque mesh pockets on one side allow gamers to store and quickly find games and cords. On the opposite side, four custom-sized, padded pockets stow the Analogue Pocket handheld, two cartridge adapters, and the Analogue Dock. Internal foam padding adds an extra layer of protection. Additional games, a UCB-C cord, and the power adapter fit into a front zippered pocket with a bright gold lining that makes it easy to find items inside.
