    which of the following protection method allows for the DS Lite to still close all the way? I heard even the Joytech leaves a slight gap, is that true?

    also which one of these keep it the least bulky (still fits into your jeans pocket)?

    - Joytech Armorlite
    - Madcatz Showcase
    - Dragon Guard Mask (http://www.kickgaming.com/ndslite-guard-mask-black-p-119.html)
    - Generic Crystal Clear Case with Silicon Insert (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.6826)
    - Generic Crystal Case from dealextreme.com (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.4425)
    - Generic Crystal Case from gameyeeeah.com (http://www.gameyeeeah.com/nds-lite-crystal-case-p-333.html)

    All of them should (Though the dragon guard mask and the general cases may not). The Joytech and Madcatz clear cases definitely do.

    The Dragon Guard Mask does not leave a gap what so ever I have one and I don't like it at all not my first preference, currently I am using a silicone guard but it leaves a major gap when closed.

    I think I've read some feedback about it not fitting properly, but they were able to exchange it at the store they bought it from

    i just got the Mad Catz case and it does NOT close all the way. =\ the clips get in the way and leaves a very small gap.

    You could try filing down the clips so that the DS can close all the way. But mind you, I think there is a reason for that feature.

    has anyone done that with success? i read in a different thread (the one about using skin + clear case) that he filed the clips down and rely on the skin to make the case stick on. will i be able to keep the case on if i don't have skin to go with it?

    also is this pretty much the same problem that all cases with clips will have?

    what would be the recommended tool for filing/sanding the clips down. i don't want to crack the plastic or make it look weird or anything.
