    I've been in the market for some form of protecting my Nintendo DS for a while, and I not-so-recently came to the conclusion that the Dragon Guard Mask was my preferred method.

    The problem arose when I just couldn't find an online store that stocked Enamel Navy Guard Masks.
    I did find one here:
    http://www.videogameaction.com/dsliprguma.html

    But I have no clue how reliable they are, and the price is rather high when compared to other sites I already know and trust.
    *edit*
    I found another site that's more reasonably priced, but I still have no clue as to how reliable it is:
    http://www.dcslinks.com/catalog/product_in...93d1a6c63fa33e9
    */edit*


    So, I need some advice on whether I should take one of the following courses of action:

    1) Go ahead and buy from the previously mentioned site.
    2) Wait until another site has Enamel Navy Dragon Guard Masks in stock.
    3) Just choose a different color (It seems like pretty much any color goes well with Black, but what are your preferences?)
    5) Don't choose a Dragon Guard mask, go for a *insert name of other guard mask/silicone skin/hard crystal case/etc*
    6) Burn the house down
    7) Go with option 4.

    Thanks in advance for any advice/help you offer, and my apologies if this has been asked before (I searched, and found one topic about this from November, but it had no answers.)

    I would suggest getting something with a hard outer case, and silicone inserts.

    I was thinking about that, but in the end, I really don't like the hard "crystal cases" too much. I don't know if it's true or not, but they just strike me as the kind of case that would crack if you dropped it. On the other hand, the Silicon skins don't seem to do much in terms of actually protecting the DS. I like the Guard Masks because it seems like the combine the feel of Silicon skins with the protection of a Crystal Case.

    That is, unless I'm mistaken and there's something that makes the Crystal Cases far superior to Guard Masks.

    hey i posted the exact same question and never really got an answer!

    anyways, i ended up giving up on looking for a cheap place to buy the navy guard mask (your find with DCSLinks was pretty good!! $13 after shipping). and got myself a crystal case (two actually, the Mad Catz disappointed me)...

    after some custom skin i made myself i am actually pretty happy with the way it looks.

    and to your point, i seriously doubt that dragon guard mask will protect your DS from drops any better than crystal hard cases. if you drop it, it's probably going to be pretty bad news either way, unless you have a pouch with cushion in it.
