I really want the pouch, but I'm going to be getting a 32GB card and the other headphones. I don't really care much for the other carrying cases, and want this pouch. But unfortunately Sony isn't selling it separately. Would anyone want to sell just the pouch? It's a long shot, but I figured I'd just ask.

They should be selling it for 19.99 separatly.

Couldn't find it anywhere. I've been looking. Hopefully it'll pop up soon. I could only find the carrying case, which was also 19.99. But I couldn't find the pouch. I don't care to much for the carrying case either, it covers the face and back, but the sides are completely exposed. It seems like the pouch provides the most coverage without adding much to the thickness. Hopefully they will sell it separately.

They have it for sale in Japan for about 6,000 Yen. You can always just import it if you don't want the starter kit, though the starter kit will be a better deal for you.

I've considered doing that, but the only import site that I really trust is PlayAsia, and they're asking $25 just as a base price, then another $7.60 for shipping; and probably tax too. So it gets pretty expensive pretty fast.

Isn't this the same exact thing?

PlayStation Vita Travel Pouch

Nope, if you look at the other pictures it's actually an extremely thick case meant for travel, it holds games, cords, etc. and it's not pocketable at all. The one in the starter kit is just a pouch, like the one that came with the value pack psps.

Not at all. That is a zipper pouch. The pouch which comes with the starter kit has a much sleeker design.

Ah, I see. My mistake.

So from the pic you posted, it looks like the pouch included with the starter kit just kinda folds over the Vita. Not too sure that would be great for protecting it.

It would be great for protecting it from getting scratched if it were rubbed across a surface like a metal zipper or a key or two in the same pocket. It would not help with drops or excess pressure. Though drops should not really be a concern given the plastic instead of glass for the screen and the lack of moving parts.

I'm into the exact same situation, I'm planning to go digital and getting the 32Gb stick, I also want the other headphones with media controllers and dont care about the extras in this starter Kit

But, I really want to use this pouch in my pocket to protect the Vita from my keys and coins. If you find a solution PLEASE let me know!

solution found: buy the starter kit, enjoy the awesome pouch, and use the 4gb stick for the JPN account you can create, and play wacky japanese games that other people wont get to play, like i am going to do. its going to be fun.

I too just wanted the pouch. I thought about ordering it from Play-Asia, but for $10 more I could just get in the US without having to wait for weeks with the cheapest shipping.

All I'm using from this kit is the pouch, screen protector and cleaning cloth. I'll find some way to sell the card case and 4GB card.

I do have a Japanese PSN account. But after reading about the steps to change the region the of your Vita, it's too much of a hassle.

I'm in the same pickle. I loved the soft cloth case that came with my launch PSP and I want a similar one for my Vita (for when I stick it in my bag). Shame it's not sold separately. Maybe I can find one on ebay around launch...
