I had one of these Nerf Armor for my Nintendo DS Lite and it was terrific. I tend to drop things and if I dropped it, it was total protection because the Nerf Armor covers the whole unit in a dense foam that has been Nerf for years! When I received my Nintendo DSi XL, I could not find the Nerf Armor for protection for it. I feel that the clear hard plastic snap on covers do nothing except maybe keep the game system clean and protect from scratching. The other cases are good for carrying but you have to remove system in order to play. It is easy to hold the Nerf while playing! I was so glad when I found this Nerf Armor for the XL. I have the Burgundy XL and the Nerf Armor - Red/Light Grey match the burgundy color perfectly. I would give this 10 stars if that had been and option! One other interesting feature is there is a snap in clip to hold the larger sized stylis that comes with the XL

Love the NERF cover! We got it for my son's DSi XL and it fits great and looks cool. We bought a silicone cover for my daughter's DSi XL and it's pure junk. I highly recommend the NERF over the silicone! NERF really adds lots of protection as well! ***UPDATE*** I've had to order a second one because the 1st one kinda fell apart. Really the kids "picked" at it. It still works great to protect the DS but I ordered a new one just because the 1st one looks junky now. Still a great product. Just got my youngest her own DSXL and ordered the case for her too. I just wish there were more than 2 color choices.

This is a great way to protect your DSi XL. This is a must have for children to keep their DS in good condition. You will never need to take the DS out of this case because you can access all the buttons, lenses, etc. through the cutouts. I only wish this were a "true" red to match our red Special Edition DSi XL. This case is more of a maroon color.

Nerf armor for a handheld gaming system is one of the better ideas I've seen in awhile! In theory, it's perfect. In actuality, here are the pros and cons:

Pros:
1. I can drop my DSiXL on the hardwood or tile and it bounces.
2. My 2 year old can hit my DSiXL with a hammer and the hammer bounces.
3. My 1 year old can throw my DSiXL as hard as he can at the wall, and it bounces.
4. It has a nifty little compartment in the bottom to hold the giant stylus.

Cons:
1. It's not ergonomically designed AT ALL. Not so comfy in the hands.
2. There's no latch to hold it closed! With just the right drop, throw, or hit with a hammer, it comes open.

Overall, worth the purchase. Hopefully we'll see a redesign in the future that addresses the few problems.

We bought Nerf Armor for my daughters' DS-Lites and they worked wonderful. We were even happier with this one for the new XL. It looks terrific, fits perfect and for as much as my kids drop things, we've never had a break yet. Highly recommended!!

This case snaps onto the DSi XL right out of the box. Installation took about 5 seconds. It makes the DSi easier to hold and carry while also providing great protection if you drop it. Well worth the money. I'd buy it again.

My son got his DSi XL when he was 4 so i wanted to find a case that he could grip and that, even more importantly, would really protect the game system. This is the one we chose and we've been really happy with it.

It's made from Nerf material that is bonded onto a hard plastic to form the case. The case is two pieces - one half for the top part of the DS and one half for the bottom part. They attack at the hinge. To put on the case, you put on one half, then the other, and they sort of clip together. It's very sturdy and very protective. We've had this case on the DSi XL for two years now and the system has never been broken,

My ONLY issue is that the case doesn't last. After about 6-10 months of use it starts falling apart. The Nerf foam will start separating from the plastic portion of the case and a corner of it breaks off. Or the plastic case itself cracks, which leads to some of the Nerf foam coming off. The minute there is a weakness, I know my son picks at it and makes it worse. (What defines use? My son takes it with him to school every day so that he can have it at his aftercare program. They get 30 minutes to play once all homework is done and they've played outside. The kids then help each other beat levels and pass their systems and games back and forth. So it gets transported and used pretty much daily. We also let him take it on long car rides and on other outings with long waits/no kids to play with.) .

Does that issue stop me from buying this case again? Nope. It's just too good. My son came home from daycare the other day with his case taped up so I got right on Amazon and ordered a new one. We're now on our third case and I will keep buying them. They are cheaper than a new DSi XL :) .

One last observation - I have noticed when I take the case off that his system looks a bit roughed/scuffed. I believe that it's from dirt/dust that gets stuck between the case and the DSi XL. So if you look at his system without the case, it will look a bit scuffed up. This is purely cosmetic and in no way affects my rating. BUT I am going to try putting a very thin rugpad between the case and his new 3DS XL he is going to get over the holidays as a gift and see if the same thing happens since I'm assuming the design points of the 3DS and the 3DS Nerf case are similar.

(Please note: this case doesn't fit on the 3DS XL - you would need to buy the 3DS XL version of this case )

I love this product! It most certainly adds bulk to this item, which can be tricky for little hands but it's worth it. The only problem I see with this is it feels just like a nerf football. I don't know if you used to do this but, as kids we would tear little pieces of them off until there was an oddly shaped "football" remaining. As you can imagine this is what I caught my nearly 4 year old doing. It is a wonderful product if you can keep your child from tearing it to shreds. Happy Shopping

Okay, this armor will make your DSi XL REALLY hard to break. It even comes with a little place to hold your XL stylus. It's biggest problem is the bulk. This thing is extremely bulky. Sure, the XL alone will slip into some deep pockets, but with the armor on, it'll have to go into backpacks, or other carrying items that have a large amount of space. Overall, I recommend this item.
