Similar to the Touchpen Leashes we featured last month, Freedom's drawstring pouch ties onto the back of your Nintendo DS, tagging along with your handheld until you undo the convenient clasp.

The new Wii bag from Atlantic is pretty nice. We like the stripe, and the messenger bag design. We have no objection to this product.
