    I got my wii jackets in the mail yesterday and while i was waiting for it i was thinking what am i going to do with the wii jackets when i already have wii gloves on?( i orderd jackets just cause they were free) well like i said i got mine yesterday and i decided to see what it would look like if it would fit over my other wii glove, it didnt look to bad and it added extra padding to my wiimote. not important or any thing flashy just thought i would let you know here are some pics i took sorry its an old ibm desktop camera

    I ordered some as well, but didn't have the other things so its not a factor for me.

    I ordered some because they were free as well, and they are actually REALLY comfortable. and don't look too bad on the remotes themselves. i really like the jackets

    My only problem with them is that I can't charge my 'motes with the jacket on.

    *If* I decide to use mine (ordered on the 10th, no idea when they'll show), I might see if the back can be cutout to accommodate the Nyko charger.

    how are those chargers i hear mixed reviews about them. some saying they don't last long and then some saying they don't connect right. so i was just wondering what you guys think about them.

    yea i have that problem too before i got my black one i had a baby blue one and i riped it trying to take it off to put batteries in it. I think if you use and excacto knife and some precise cuts you could make it work with out making it look ugly but i don't know how well the grip on the wii mote will be with a hole in it. I say if you are willing to try it go for it.

    wiimote skin

    Mine came pre "cut" to allow the base to be folded back to allow charging, and they came with nunchuck covers. Got them from GAME here in the UK (and they were on sale muahaha)

    wont be using the jackets if i cant charge the mote with it on - oh well no money wasted i s'pose!

    Lol, the first time I heard of the Wii Jackets, I thought they meant as a sweater o_o. Anyway, yeah.. I went on Nintendo today, and saw the whole 'FREE' Wii Jacket thing. Looks pretty cool, so I ordered them! ^_^

    After you use them it feels so weird without one. Its like you have to have it on, thats why i didn't want to take it off after i got the wii jackets cause then my nunchuck was going to feel naked. lol

    I bought the intec rechargable battery packs when I got my wii. Id recommend a recharger to everyone. The charge doesnt last that long (a few hours) but its better than spending $$$ for AAs. And when your home late playing your fave game and you run out of batteries youll thank yourself for buying them. What other chargers does anyone have? How well do yours work?
