Tech 21 Evo Check Review
A while back I was out on a job and I found that my mid-sized 3DS was more than adequate for my needs, which was mainly to play the odd game of Ocarina of Time. Normally, that’s all I would use it for, but I found that one of my friends had StreetPass enabled on the game, so when an icon popped up on the top screen informing me that I had just StreetPassed someone, I was determined to find out who it was.
Of course, the risk of breaking my precious game meant that I would have to be extra careful when I did it, so I found a particularly soft patch of ground and carefully stood up my 3DS. Then, I went to the StreetPass settings and disabled StreetPass. After that, I waited a few moments for the message to disappear, before going straight back into it and re-enabling StreetPass.
It worked. I found that I had StreetPassed at least 20 persons, including a few who were quite well-known in the community. I was drooling. The only bad part about it was that I didn’t have anybody local to StreetPass for, but it didn’t really matter; I was excited to find out who I had just StreetPassed, regardless of whether I would ever see them again or not.
Now, if you’ve got this far in the article, you will probably have realised what the point of this story was – this is all to illustrate why I love my Tech 21 Evo Check pouch so much. I can’t count how many times I’ve used it when out on the town, mainly because out on the town was where I kept it at the time, but it may have been upwards of a hundred.
Not only did I find it extremely helpful when StreetPassing, but throughout the life of my 3DS, I used it to help me find some easily overpriced Wiimotes and a couple of times, I even used it to break up the monotony of having nothing useful to do at the time. It quickly became a highlight of my trips to the shops, so much so that I now take it with me every single time I go out.
All of this aside, I feel that I would be remiss if I failed to mention that this pouch does more than just help you find Wiimotes (and now 3DSs). As you can see, it’s a very stylish and classy little accessory that I managed to find at quite a reasonable price. The inside contains the Tech 21 Evo Check, which is not easily visible at first glance, but it sits comfortably in the pouch and has a little clasp to keep it closed. Personally, I enjoy keeping it closed so that the Evo Check doesn’t fall out or accidently get pushed into my 3DS.
This is a simple enough thing to comment on, but I feel that it’s important nevertheless. It’s been a while since I reviewed the Evo Check pouch, so I can’t remember the exact glide or why exactly it was that I liked so much, but I have no reason to believe that the Tech 21 Evo Check is anything less than the 3DS itself. The Evo Check, although it seems to be almost the same thickness as regular DS games, offers superb slide and is still as scratch resistant as the rest of the Evo range.
What else is there to say? If you’re looking for a pouch to help you connect with other gamers when out on the town and you have a decent sized 3DS, then this is a perfect choice for you. It’s not just stylish and practical, it’s also a great way to help you show your individuality.
