The cover is easy to fit and feels comfortable when in use. It should protect the pad from light knocks, drops and scratches. Be aware though that if you have a black Wii U and like to use the charging cradle that you cannot charge the pad with the cover on. It just doesn't sit properly. Shame, because the charging cradle is a nice feature of the premium pack. Only way round it is to sit the pad on the cradle but feed the power cable directly into the top of the pad. Not a very elegant solution, but it does work.
