    Mediocre Accessory Kit

    I got this kit for free with a Wii U system bundle but if I paid $40 for it I'd be very disappointed in the overall package. The carrying case is probably the best part as you can safely and securely hold the gamepad while traveling along with a screen cleaning pad and two spare stylus pens. What really drove down my score was the awful controller glove, which, in my opinion, is the second biggest reason to even get this kit. It seems nice at face value but it is poorly designed as it instantly makes both the gamepad stand and the charging base station, accessories that come with a Deluxe Wii U system, useless. The glove is too thick to fit on the stand and there aren't even cut outs for the charging station. What's the point of the Nintendo Seal of Quality if the controller glove doesn't even work with Nintendo's own accessories? I have to choose between convenience and protection which is a terrible choice to force on your customer. The glove should have been designed to work with Nintendo's gamepad stand or at least the charging station. Period. There's no point to it otherwise. For $40 I would not recommend it all.

    One Major Flaw

    This kit is pretty good. The carrying case is sturdy, the screen cleaner works well, & the extra pens are nice. But there is one MAJOR flaw & it's with the gamepad glove! The feel of it is nice & it fits the gamepad well enough, but the gamepad won't be able to rest & charge on the cradle that comes with the system. The only course of actions are to remove it every time (no way), just use the cable to charge (can rest it backwards in the unzipped carrying case for protection), or just not use it at all. I got the kit for free like many others, but buyer beware, especially if you're interested in the gamepad glove.

    Good without the rubber case!

    I found this to be a very good protection decision if you commonly travel with the Wii U, however I had issues with the rubber case, as it blocks the dock connector pins, thus it does not allow you to use the Wii Us' included charging dock. Nevertheless due to the unuseful nature of this pack I do not recommend it for the money, I mean you can't take the Wii U GamePad out of the house anyway, it just makes using the Wii more cumbersome.

    It's a case, and another case, and a pen

    The rubber cover is a little too thick, the controller does not fit in the charging dock with the cover on. Pull the cover off to charge and it starts to stretch out and fit loosely. The zipper case cleaner and extra pens are nice. Everything looks well made (yes even the stretchy rubber cover) but if this wasn't part of a bundle I would not have bought it

    My son likes the game pad glove but will probably never use the carry case. It was fine buying it on clearance but would never have bought it otherwise.

    It was free with the system so I can't complain. Don't like that the protector blocks the charging hole though.

    My Wii U gamepad receives a lot of use. It's nice to see it a litter more protected through this product.

    Good kit, unfortunately you can't charge the game pad with the cover on, but still nice!
