    Why not just buy a regular, hard case for keeping your DS in?
    I don't understand these silicon ones - they surely can't help that much if you drop it - they'll just make it bounce a bit. And the rubbery texture... like playing with a jelly! Ugh!

    Silicon skins in general (I have one on my MP3):
    Pros: Keep scratches off, extra grip when holding, grip stops things falling out of pockets / sliding off desks
    Cons: Skin gets dirty, and some are ugly as sin (avoid translucent white)

    I don't have one on my Lite so I couldn't comment about this particular use of them.

    Got one of these being shipped over as we speak (The cream one). Sick of carryign my DS Lite around in my oversized DS phat case. Especially as it smells of prawns (don't ask)

    To tell you the truth, almost all the silicon case will make the ds not close properly, this is a design issue. the silicon case must have someway to hold onto the ds without falling off, the best way to do that is to wrap around the inside panel. therefore all sillicon case will make the ds thicker on the inside which wont allow the ds to close tight.



    also one thing to note, you wont be able to see it in the pictures, the silicon case will not sit flush to the ds when open, since its design to be slug when closed. you will see like a loose skin effect when the ds is opened (its on the back thou, but its a thing to consider)
