Style Name: NEW Nintendo 3DS XL Verified Purchase
Finally got mine after waiting 3 weeks for more stock.

This grip is very soft and comfortable. It fits the New 3DS XL perfectly. For anyone with big hands, like myself, or who finds their hands cramping up while playing for long periods of time this grip is for you. Unlike others on the marker that are hard plastic with a thin layer of rubber coating (that will most likely wear off over time) This grip is made of a very soft and flexible rubber the cradles and comforts the hands perfectly. While it is flexible it appears to be very durable and should last quite a while.

With the grip on the New 3DS XL you have access to all ports, buttons and switches except for the game cartridge slot unfortunately. The trigger buttons are also covered but the grip does not hinder their use in any way.

The top piece is separate from the bottom half so if all you need is the grip part you can use it without the top if you like.

One thing I do not like, and this is just a cosmetic thing and does not affect the use of the grip, is the thin parts near the hinges tend to lift and bend making it look kind of bad. I think using a little piece of double sided tape should hold them down though.

PROS
- Very comfortable and soft.
- Great for those with bigger hands like myself.
- Makes holding 3DS much better. Less cramping of fingers and a better overall grip.

CONS
- NO game slot cut-out. Not sure the reasons for this as it can easily be done. I just think they rushed this out to market for whatever reason.
- Dust collector.
- Thinner parts by hinges tend to lift and bulge up a bit. Does not affect the grip but just makes it look bad.
- Too soft and flexible. Bends as you use it.

I read the reviews, and was almost sad when this was shipped, afraid that I might not like it due to people saying that it was falling off and it wasn't a very snug fit. I am wondering if these people don't have a 3DS XL, Because mine fits 100% perfectly. I love this case, it is EXACTLY what I wanted. it DOES make it bigger, but that expected with any case that puts big hand grips on it, so that isn't a problem for me, but might be for others. what does it feel like? Its Silicone, so it feels like a rubbery kind of texture, and I was afraid it would pick up dirt and hair and other things a lot, but nope. every time I grip it, it feels just as smooth at it did from day one of me getting it! I am a fan of this case and will suggest it to everyone. Everyone I show it too goes "WOW I love this case, where did you get it?" my answer? "Amazon, from a company called DreamGEAR!" Hope this helps others

I LOVED my dreamGear comfort grip for my old 3DS XL and even emailed them several months before this was released to see when this one would be available. You can imagine my horror to find that unlike the first, the bottom has to be removed to change out the game cartridge. Couple that with rubber that can become slightly disfigured from repeated removals and it's a recipe for a poor follow-up to a once awesome product.

As great as the Nintendo 3DS XL's design is, it's almost a given that, if played long enough, your hands will cramp up eventually; it's only a matter of time, really. Don't get me wrong, the XL is much better for cramping than the original 3DS was, but it's still an inevitability. For those of you who, like myself, may find yourself playing the 3DSXL for hours on end, enraptured by the time devouring (I'm reminded of Chrono Cross all of a sudden for some reason, hmmm...) charm of masterpieces like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf; OR maybe you find yourself just beating the tar out of your hands with the intense action of games like Star Fox 64 3D or Kid Icarus: Uprising. Needless to say, your hands WILL cramp and you WILL thank the gaming gods for a product like this one.

The package comes with two main pieces. One piece goes on the lower half of the 3DSXL and acts as the grip itself.

Great product, fits perfectly, feels great, I like it even more than I thought I would; however, minus one star for having to go to Staples and buy an X-acto knife to cut a hole for game cartridges myself. I only took it off once to make the hole, and putting it back on was noticeably annoying - I can't imagine doing it every time you change games. They must have a reason for not including a hole for games, as there's holes for everything else, even little holes for the speakers, but I have no idea what their reasoning is, as I just cut the hole in myself and I can't see any disadvantage to it, and even if there is, I can't possibly imagine I'd mind it as much as having to constantly mess with taking it on-and-off. Also, I tried really hard to make straight clean looking lines when cutting out the hole myself and I couldn't do it, which irks me.
