However, there is one incredible con. It smells. I don't mean that new rubber product smell, I'm not sure what this smell is. It is disgusting. I left it in my bedroom and came in later that day, I instantly felt sick. The smell is strong and one of the worst odors I've ever experienced. And when I took out the Vita it smelt for about an hour before that smell went away. Maybe the smell is an anti-theft feature, I'm not really sure why it smells so bad.
Medium, not too big or not too small. Big enough to place comfortably in your bag and small enough to carry in your hands. Could potentially clip on your pants if you really wanted to; size is in that middle range between looking awkward and acceptable.
Very sturdy case. Well made and quality does not feel cheap.
Case opens but not fully. Instead there are two straps in the middle of top half of the case that holds the case to the bottom half. This prevents accidentally have your Vita fall out if you open the case a weird angle. There is also a small cloth piece that postions itself over the Vita's screen when it is inside the case (helping against scratches). What I personally love about the design, is that the Vita cannot come into contact with the zipper. There is a small groove that separates the Vita from the outside of the case and stops the zipper from touching the Vita when the case is fully closed.
Perfect for storing Vita and 2 games (does not fit anything else). The right case for just transporting the Vita without fear of dropping the case and damaging the system.
As a final side note I see a lot of mention of an odd odor about the Hori Vita Hard Cases. This is true though don't let this scare you off. The smell (for some odd reason) reminds me of shoe/sneaker material (such as what's found on the inside of them). The smell isn't overly prevalent unless you go poking your nose in the case, air it out and all should theoretically be well enough. Overall the case isn't anything extravagant (like the Hori MGS 3DS case set I covered) but it is properly functional and up to Hori's quality.
The case looks cool, with the main color being black, while the outer rim being orange (the picture shows it being more of a red color, but it's not). A few people seemed disappointed that it was actually orange, but I'm happy with it, since orange is my favorite color! The inside is spacious enough to not worry about bumping the analog sticks around and breaking them, but small enough to feel like it isn't moving around at all inside.
There's a sort of slip that holds the Vita in place, with a spot for a few games/memory cards to go as well. My one problem is that it's a tad bit hard to get a game out of this pouch since it presses against the case a little, and you have to wedge your hand in there. Hard to explain exactly, but it's not a huge deal. There's been reviews that state the inside smells horrible and like a chemical, but mine arrived smelling normal!
It works. It's cheap. It keeps my Vita safe. That's all that I need to be happy with this product!
UPDATE (12/8/2013): Not sure how this happened, but one of the zippers (the part you pull on, not the actual "teeth") came apart the other day when unzipping the case. The thing just flew off, I'm not sure what the heck happened, but luckily there are two zippers, so I can still open and close the case just fine. I'll update this if the other one comes apart. It could be somehow it broke off because of the cold weather currently? That's all I can think of.. Thankfully zippers can be replaced!
