A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that Nintendo was offering up to 4 free Wii Remote Jackets to all Wii owners. Yesterday, my package of 4 remote jackets arrived.

The jackets definitely add a lot of padding around the top of the Wii Remote. I found that it makes Wii Virtual Console games (that require you to turn the Wii Remote sideways) a little easier to play by providing more surface area to hold on to.
And, although I never had a problem with flying Wii remotes, the rubber material definitely makes the Wii Remote easier to grip.
