WaterField Designs pouch for Steam Deck review: Subtle and stylish with space for essential extras

Part of the appeal of Valve’s handheld Steam Deck PC-meets-console is the inclusion of a free hard shell carry case. It’s certainly a robust offering, but not so compact. While the official variant has a carry handle and some spare compartments, there’s no subtlety to walking around with a case decorated with a logo of its contents.

Based out of San Francisco, WaterField Designs manufactures stylish and functional accessories for all manner of hardware. Currently offering a small selection of cases for Steam Deck, this nylon pouch offers convenient protection in various colors. I spent a few days with their Steam Deck pouch to determine if it’s worth the asking price.
