    i've bought 3 leather cases from ebay uk(from a seller(futureplayuk) located in uk, NOT HK). they have printed the "keys factory" logo on them and have this little green thingy on the side, so i guess they're genuine. also they came in a stylish gray blister.

    now my problem is: THEY SMELL LIKE CRAP. my whole apartement already stinks like those the leather cases and the smell is starting to give me headaches.

    one of them looks like this :
    (... but the brown thingy is green on mine )

    so is anyone out there who had a similar experience with leather cases from key factory?
    i'm pretty close to BURNING them, because i can't take the smell anymore. or dump them in the washing mashine.
    ... holy crap i need a gas mask

    Genuine Keys Factory cases are good.

    The fakes are the ones causing the problems.

    I purchased a leather smart case, thought it was great until it stained the non-glossy areas of my white DS-Lite with some sort of oil from the leather.

    Keys factory have made a note of it on their website at

    well, looks like the cases i've bought are fakes. missplaced "DS" logo.
    2 of the 3 cases will be returned to the seller and one is currently taking a ride in my washing machine. i really couldn't take the smell anymore.

    and that oil like fluid you mentioned ... i saw that too after washing the case with my hands to get rid of this awful smell.

    I bought this type of leather case (may have been a different seller, I don't remember):

    I left it in my car for a few hours in the sun and now it smells like SKUNK. It smelled up my whole car for weeks.

    I got my gf the same one and she's only kept it in inside and hers sorta smells like skunk.

    STAY AWAY! I just ordered a plastic case last Friday (hasn't arrived yet).
