I have had my eye on WaterField cases for other gadgets such as my Nintendo DS and PS Vita, and recently ended up finally ordering a couple. Turns out that the case for PS Vita fits the Gemini quite well.

The main interior pocket holds the Gemini pretty well, though not super snugly, and seems very secure against drops. The main pocket clips shut with button clasps.

The back mesh pocket zippers shut, and is big enough to hold:

- Charger
- Cable
- Gemini Hub
- Gemini HDMI adapter
- DotPen stylus

Very pleased with this for taking the Gemini traveling.

Attached a few photos of the case loaded up.

Thanks for sharing, Isaac.

Nice case....and from past experience, I know Waterfield are high quality.

If I didn't have the leather Gemini case, I'd consider getting one of these.

If you don't mind me asking, what's the use case for a Gemini case?

For me (with over 20 years of using Psions), I never once wanted or used a case.  The unit lives in my trouser pocket, and is only removed to sit on a desk or bedside table (or be handheld).  It's sturdy and doesn't get scratched or damaged.  A case would take up extra space in my pocket, delay the deployment and return, and be one more thing to hold or put down — all completely unnecessary.

How do you use yours, and what benefit do you get from a case?

Obviously, using a case is optional.

I wanted to keep the Gemini looking nice and new, so, to avoid casing getting scuffed up, I use the Gemini leather sleeve case. Works great. Just needs a few days of use to loosen up slightly and then it's fairly easy to put in or remove. Leather is fairly thin, so doesn't really add any noticeable bulk to the device. So you can easily keep Gemini in your pocket.

HTH,

Mark

The main benefit for me is travel. When on the train or moving between offices it's nice to have all of the accessories for something located with it in my bag. When I don't have a bag, and won't be out for longer than a day, typically I don't carry the accessories and therefore use only the Planet slip leather case. But for longer trips, etc. a case that includes the charger, extra battery, etc. is always handy.

My Waterfield case came today, and I am very pleased. I have the leather slip case which shipped to backers as a perk, and I think the Gemini + slip case will be what goes in my pocket when I go out the door. The Waterfield case is perfect for stashing the charger and the HDMI cable and keeping that in my bag. On the way to the airport or the like, I can stuff the Gemini (in the slip case, no less!) in the Waterfield case and carry it in my carryon with the rest of that junk.

Highly recommended. Thanks for the recommendation!
