To start with, a BIG thank you to Platinum Games for the superbly fast shipping. The kit is Sony very own! Top quality in my opinion. It is a good thing to have a case for the vita as not only it keeps it away from dust, but holds the vita in place. There are 2 plastic attachment folds over a velcro fasten, with a movable tab. Comes with a standard strap, pouch, game case. All in all, a fab starter kit for the vita!
* The (Vita branded) wrist strap is a must to prevent accidental drops.
* The microfibre cleaning cloth is also essential for keeping the vita looking smart. This is also Vita branded.
* The screen protector is high quality and comes on a clever applicator which aligns it perfectly with the screen. It does however have a slightly off texture which can be seen on pure 'black/grey' screens. I was able to apply this with no bubbling whatsoever and with little effort.
* The slip case is exactly that - a well made fabric case in which to store the device. It offers no substantial protection against bangs and knocks, but will keep the dust off.
* The executive case is well made and looks the business, however it amounts to a 'leather-clad cardboard sandwich' with no protection to the sides of the vita (except where the hinge is). It does however lock the vita in and transform into a handy media stand. Both cases ONLY have space for the vita itself with no accessory pockets.
* The case for game carts and memory sticks is just that. Nothing special but does what it does well.
This is a value for money purchase which sadly does not include the travel adaptor. The other travel pack however does not contain the slim profile cases... A matter of choice really.
