The problem I had with this product is that the games were difficult, for me at least, to get in and out of the mesh slots. It's a pretty tight fit, and I was only able to get 4 games per row (each row should hold 5) without forcing the 5th one more than I was comfortable with. Since the slots won't hold games in cases the contacts are left exposed, which concerns me given the difficulty in getting the games in their slots in the first place. I also noticed that it was pretty tough to get games out of the 2nd or 3rd rows when the 1st row was fully loaded. The mesh, which is black, and the elastic also partially block the title on most games, so its tough to see which game is where unless you actually pull them partly out or only put them in about 3/4 of the way when you're loading them.
These issues won't be a problem for some people, and are certainly better than the alternative of just leaving the games lying around or cramming them into the nooks and crannies of other DS cases. For me, however, the pain in getting games in and out was enough to dampen my enthusiasm for having more game storage, and I'll be returning this product and buying more plastic cases instead.Read more ›
I give it the 3 stars simply because it does hold the most games of any other case I've found without being bulky, and it will also hold my DS snuggly as well as the charger pack and the headphones I have. The case itself is not super large either, being about the size of your average trade paperback in size and thickness. It's also got velcro attachments inside making it somewhat "modular" so that you can divide the case up into three sections of whatever size you want.
If the cartridge pockets just weren't so poorly made... :(
The G-Pak has enough individual mesh pockets to hold up to 30 DS games and has an additional 6 pockets designed for GBA games. The main compartment includes 2 padded dividers that you can position as you like via velcro. Mine is configured similarly to the picture shown with the DS in the center and the charger and headphones in the compartments on either side. Some have mentioned that games are too tough to get out of the pockets, for my part I leave the very top of the games above the elastic band and to remove them, I just push up on the bottom of the game until it's far enough out for me to grab- works great for me.
The case seems pretty well-made and should do a more than adequate job of protecting the DS and it's games. I also prefer to 'look' of it over my old ALS case. It doesn't have "Nintendo" written anywhere on the outside and doesn't scream "kid's toy" like other cases seem to, which could be nice for us older gamers.
Naki seems to have broken from the pack to offer the first product I've seen to let you store the DS system AND it's accessories AND a bunch of games at the same time.
Compare this to the similarly-priced Vizu System/Game Carry case (barely holds the DS, has one flap to sort-of store your games), Intec Game Briefcase (holds 12 games in cheap plastic dividers), or the best game-case alternative: Intec "Ultimate" Game Case, holds 8 DS games + 3 GBA.
Naki's case feels like a laptop case. It has a padded interior with movable dividers. The interior is actually big enough to store 2 regular DSs (I don't know why the case says DS Lite on it) plus their accessories, plus a bunch of games. There's a shoulder strap included that has pockets for a couple more games. The handle and strap's connectors are big and sturdy, and there's plenty of padding everywhere. The case doesn't feel cheap or flimsy.
Even though this is now my favorite case, it's not perfect. The games are supposed to go into small divided mesh pockets, 1 game per pocket.Read more ›

I bought it for my son and he loves it. It keeps everything organized very neatly and it's very durable so I won't need to buy a replacement bag anytime soon.Published on December 21, 2013 by technoshopper
