Using the Boogie Bug Besace Wii Bag is really fast and easy; it will probably take you longer to take your Wii apart than it will take you to put it in the bag. The quality of this bag and the velour fabric and extra padding on the inside actually makes you feel safe to put your Wii in. A nice addition to the case is also how you can pretty much use any compartment for any Wii component, minus the console and controller parts.
The console fits perfectly into its velour pouch and is held there with a tight Velcro strap. Then placing the Wii bar on the other side of the bag and securing it with two Velcro straps is the next easy step.
Just to follow the picture on the retail packaging I placed my power supply on the Wii console side and let the cables overlap to the other side, which I could also hold together with the extra Velcro straps provided with this case.
The Wii stand, if you want to take it with you, fits nicely right next to the Wii console and again is held to the case by a Velcro strap.
Like I mentioned before this case can hold up to any combination of four Wii controllers. The velour lid secures them in place instead of a Velcro strap like most of the other parts of this case.
The game pouch, found on the Wii console side of the bag, holds two games comfortably, but I think you could pass with up to three games in there.
Surprisingly with two to three games in the game pouch, and it sticking out pretty far, the Velcro straps still securely hold the flip cover to the case fairly well.
Also included with the pouch is a robust shoulder strap which is highly adjustable. The Besace website said that there was a velour pad on here, but I never found any myself. It’s actually pretty comfortable to use even without a pad mainly because of the very low weight of the Wii and accessories.
You can also tell the strap isn’t cheap by the quality of the clips. The metal is pretty thick and sturdy, which is surprising considering the size and weight of the Wii. I guess Boogie Bug are really emphasizing the quality of their Wii bag and providing the user with the most protection and sense of security for their Wii and accessories.
