Official Nintendo Travel Case for DSi and DSi XL – Wine

This case is great! It holds the DSI XL snug in the bottom, offers a place for 8 games on the top, they are so easy to get in and out of the holders, it has a place for up to 3 stylus to be held, including the new pen style, and a thick mesh pocket that will hold a regular charger, a car charger and headphones at the same time! It protects the DSI XL very well, its not hard as a rock, but will definitely protect against drops or while traveling. Of course it is bigger than the case I had for my original DSI, but it’s not huge, about the size of a thick paperback book. I got the wine color which matches my burgundy DSI XL perfectly. Love it!

Having owned several portable consoles, I have grown accustomed to making compromises when it came to cases. Either the case has room for everything and is way too big/bulky (ex: Nintendo DS G-pak Organizer Black) , or the case form fits perfectly and has no extra room whatsoever. (ex: Logitech PSP PlayGear Pocket – Slim)

I have gone through 4 or 5 cases specific to the Nintendo DS lite, and DSi. Some being just big enough for the console, almost a sleeve, and some might as well have been a small suitcase. I can however say that this case , the BD&A DSi XL Ultimate Travel Case, is by far my favorite case to date.

This case has a bottom depression with a snug form-fit for the DSi XL to sit in, very securely, but without squishing the console or holding the shoulder buttons down.

A “flap” covers the console depression itself, and can be secured in place by a small velcro strip. This tab has little nylon pockets that will hold up to 8 (eight) Nintendo DS cartridges perfectly. With this flap in place, and secured with the velcro, you can open your case without worrying that the console itself may fall out due to whatever reason.

The big selling point for me is the top half, however. I don’t know how they did it, but the top half of this case can easily fit the NDSi (XL) power adapter, 2 normal stylus, the new “pen” stylus, and several small accessories all without putting any strain on the zippers or causing the case to bulge. I currently have my power adapter, a 2-fold game case that holds an additional 4 carts (DSi XL Clean and Protect Kit – Black), and 3 more cases that hold 3 carts each (Nintendo DS Lite Game Card Case). The case still zips with no strain on the zipper at all, and without causing the case to bulge.

Overall, I give this case a strong 5 out of 5.

Pros:

Certified : Nintendo Certified product

Professional quality – Superb craftsmanship, a sturdy, and good looking case

Form fitting – keeps the console snug and safe

Cartridge slots – Holds up to 8 NDS games

Accessory net – Generous space for storing all your NDS accesories

(potential) Cons:

Size – At almost 2″ thick, it’s not going to fit in your pocket. The length and width are about 1/4″ longer/wider than the console itself

Playthrough – This is not a “playthorugh” case, and as such you will need to remove the console each time yoou want to play it

When it has came down to the new Nintendo DSi XL, there haven’t been many cases or accessories made for the updated version of Nintendo’s newest version of the Nintendo DS family. This case though is definitely one of the better bets. This Ultimate Travel Case for the Nintendo DSi XL is simple and easily convient for you to store the Nintendo DSi XL system. It also works very well for storing several of your favorite Nintendo DS games so you won’t have to carry something else around to go with it. The price is definitely right, and well worth the effort. It is definitely one of the better cases and setups for the Nintendo DSi XL, and I absolutely recommend it for its convience and its comfort. It definitely is well-worth the money. I hope there are other ones that just as good as this one.

Great case to store the DSi and ALL the accessories. Everything is in one place and easy to throw into your carry-on for travel or grab running out the door. Glad we bought this one, instead of others (only slightly less expensive) that don’t fit the entire system and accessories.
