I have 3 boys, 3 Nintendo DS lites, and now 3 Logitech PlayGear Pockets. I initially only bought one of these, because two of my sons bought their DS lites with an accessory package that came with a plain crystal play-in case. After this arrived, they all liked it so much that we bought 2 more.

This case can also be used as a play-in case as everything is accessible with the DS lite still in it and the lid open.

The outer shell is a clear, hard, durable plastic. There is an inner rubber lining that provides the DS lite with a little better shock protection if dropped. There are recesses in the inner rubber lining of the lid that are made for holding up to 4 DS games. The rubber lining is removable so that the case can be customized by placing cut out images/pictures/stickers/etc under the lining that can then be seen through the outer plastic. To make it easy, it comes with plastic templates for tracing the outline of a picture you want to cut out to put in the case.

It is only a little bulkier than the plain crystal play-in cases, but to me, that's a good thing because it makes holding the DS lite more comfortable for long periods of time. These cases also provide much better shock and crush protection (good if you're going to toss it into a backpack or other soft sided bag) as opposed to the plain crystal cases that really only provide good scratch protection. I don't know if I'd pay the retail price of $20.00 for these, but we got them shipped for about $3.00 each, which is a steal.

I've uploaded user pictures to give a better idea of what it looks like.

Logitech does it again with their PlayGear series of accessory cases for portable gaming! I actually own another PlayGear case for my PSP(hat) that I've had going on strong for the past 3 yrs and absolutely love it! So when I recently became a DS Lite owner it was no doubt in my mind what sort casing protection I wanted to get for it (sorry, Amazon I did get from you guys though but I preferred writing a review here).

I'm not really one of those gamers (girl gamer, to be specific, lol) that's into those silly little 'pouches', 'bags', or whatever other showy cases are out there. I do like things that look appealing, 'yes', but I also want durability and function. Logitech PlayGear for the DS Lite, for me, is the absolute best case in my opinion in terms of what I was looking for. The clear plastic is not only appealing, but it's very durable, plus it also has molded rubberized cushioning that adds that extra bit of stablity to your DS Lite. I think it's also really cool for it to have 4 DS game slots molded into the inside upper (rubber) part of the lid so you can take some games on-the-go. Personally, it's not a big deal to me that it's only 4 (I don't have any huge collection yet). Also, another cool thing (though I haven't tried it yet) is that you can also use the included cut-out molds to use to make and add your own images/designs that you can then put on the top and bottom of the case (you insert them under the rubber parts and it'll show through the clear case) adding your own look! All-in-all, if you really are serious about protecting your system for a while whether at home or on-the-go this is definitely a case to invest in.

My kids loved being able to create unique covers for their DS. The game storage in the lid is awesome. My brother saw it and is now planning to order one for his son. He has the nerf cover, but loved the ability to make it unique and store games.

This is a great cover for a very cheap price. I really like the amount of bulk it adds, and makes the Lite way more comfortable to hold in duration. It's also cool how you can make your own cut out pictures to use as the cover design.

This case is great for my 6 year old. We have an under 2 year old who is into everything. She can't get into this case. We like the fact that you can customize the case. You can charge your DS while it's in the case, and you can play it while it's in the case if you want. Offers good protection. It does have a place to store 4 games, but the slots are a little loose. Overall it's a great case.
I wanted to update my review, we have now owned this case for some time, it's still holding up great. We have updated the cover a few times, and it's still too tough for my toddler to get into. I was surprised at how well it's held up. And the price is great, I definately recommend.

We got this for our younger son's Nintendo DS. It was key to have protection against damaging the DS with accidental drops and manhandling. The cover is very basic but the slight padding along the inside edges is good.

The cover is a very plain white and most kids would prefer a trademark character protection cover which can be costly. We solved this issue by letting our son have at it with permanent markers to make his own design case. Problem solved.

My 8 y.o. picked apart her nerf case (remember the old nerf balls that always ended up with big gouges and chunks missing from them?) so I wanted to find a different case that might last longer yet still afford some protection if she drops it.

I've been happier than I expected with this logitech case. It feels quite durable with a hard outer shell structure and a softer rubbery cushion within. The base of the game fits snugly into the rubber casing, yet the top of the case is looser, so you can open the case and the game unit stays closed, giving you access to an area that snugly holds 4 game cartridges. An added advantage to this is that you can use the outer hard case to prop up your game while playing (see the picture I uploaded of my daughter playing with it propped onto her legs to see what I mean). You can also put pictures in-between the hard outer shell and the inner rubber and they even give you cut out templates in the right shape to help you do this.

Having 4 additional games besides the one in the active play slot has been great for travel and even just around the house. My daughter actually puts them into the slots when changing games and I no longer find the little cartridges left in various places around the house (we've lost a few of them due to this problem already).

Benefits:

1. Securely holds and protects game unit
2. Has extra storage for 4 additional game cartridges
3. Can be used to prop up your game at different angles
4. Can be "decorated" any way you want and it is easy to change your decorations when desired
5. Great for kids and adults alike
6. Not overly bulky despite features

Downside:

The only negative I've found is that because the top is so adjustable, you have to align the top and bottom just right in order for it to latch closed. A younger child might have a problem (or lack of patience) doing this.

The product is fine for ds lite but just a heads up, it does NOT fit dsi. Probably obvious but I thought I would just confirm if anyone was wondering.

My DS Lite is able to fit comfortably in it but a little too loose for what I had imagined. I bought this thinking that it would be the type of case that would fit easily into my pocket but that is not the case (pun intended). This is really good if you are on a trip or travel alot since it can store up to four DS cards.

There are only two reasons for why this case got a 4:
- The hinges sometimes don't align themselves correctly when trying to close it and require a slight adjustment
- The case scratches easily but feels solid enough to withstand a few drops (mine has suffered one four foot drop on a side walk and came out only with scratches while keeping the DS completely unharmed).

Overall very nice case and eventhough I haven't used the customizable attribute it has it looks really good. But again this is a 3.5cm thick case, not good for everyday carrying unless you have very baggy jeans.

I ordered two of these cases for my boys. The boys are total opposites, but they both love this case. They have no problems playing with the cases on, unlike some other cases they have tried on friends' DS Lites. I was a little leary of the lid, since it does not open with the game system but rather as a seperate unit that you have to open first. However, the lid acts like a stand for the game system and actually makes it easier for them to play. It also looks like it covers enough of the DS lid to protect it even in a fall. They also love the room for the games in the lid. While we have not added skins yet, they are looking forward to customizing their game systems in the near future. Overall, I would recommend this case to anyone.
