    hori screen protectors

    and this:

    it is an old protecting cloth for my sunglasses... but since i lost my glasses (nooooooo!!!!!) i use it for my DS. ANd it fits like a glove, i love it. It will not prevent it getting crushed by heavy stuff but it protects it from my keys and stuff in my backpack [​IMG].

    Woah, Rayder, that's awesome! As for myself, I have a JoyTech ArmorLite Case for external protection (sturdy as cases get) and a pair of HORI Screen Protectors for, well, the screens [​IMG]

    I have my Nintendo DS since 2~3 Years now.
    On the Top there only some very little scratches wich you only can see during holding it under light.
    On the Top screen there are nearbly none scratches, just 1~2 very little.
    On the touch screen there are some more "low-level" scratches, but you just can see it under a light too...
    Im using it very often...

    Protections: none :0
    And I don't think that I ever would get some x)
    my DS is nice how it is without those crappy Shells xD

    ... Now anyone should say that 12~14 Old kids can't be carefully with their thinks ;D...

    Semi-hard shelled case with soft inside, and a little sleeve perfect for holding my SD adapters and M3 slot-2.
    From Intec's starter kit.

    I've used a MadCatz crystal hard case for mine. It has worked flawlessly, no scratches or blemishes on my DS lite. It won't capture dust and dirt and scratch it up like the silicon skins do.

    Go to the MadCatz website and look up NDS Lite Custom Show Case. It's only $14.99

    right now i have the full body skin from bestskinsever on. i don't want my ds lite to get too bulky and it prevents scratches.

    although i am noticing some discoloration on the skins lately and am looking for alternatives. do you guys have any recommendations? here are the things that i really want:

    - scratch protection (drop protection is not high priority with me)
    - not too bulky (i want to keep it slim, still able to fit in my jeans pocket will be optimal)
    - allows the ds to close all the way

    so far i read about the dragon guard mask (i can't find the navy colored ones anywhere!!) and some clear cases (joytech armorlite and mad catz). what do you guys think about these? any other recommendations that i don't know about?

    Just a basic little case that I picked up at GameStop. It holds my DS snug and has a little pocket for various things. I keep a few stylus(es?) in there.

    I want to get one of the cases that came with the Brain Age 2/Crimson DS kit. Those are pretty nice looking.
