Excellent but not perfect
First off, let me say that I'd give this 4.5 stars, since the complaints I have are very, very minor.

It does snap on quite easily and nicely, and I was thrilled to see that it still allows the DSL to close entirely. There are some similar silicon skins here in the USA, but they wrap around the entire case (as they are made entirely of soft silicon), and thus it keeps the system from closing tightly. However, this jacket doesn't do that since it snaps onto the sides, so the entire package is still sleek and smooth.

It feels nice enough - kind of "powdery," but still firm and sturdy. Doesn't add much bulk or weight at all, so really this is the best solution for protecting your system without making it too large or heavy.

I do, however, have a few small complaints. The good news is that they can be fixed easily.

The first is that the jacket does wrap around the entire system, and thus there is a connecting hinge piece between the top and bottom halves. It's basically just a strip of soft silicon. I commend Capdase for making the jacket all one piece, but this strip is an issue. See, when you open your DSL to play, this strip creates pressure on the hinge. Thus, you cannot open the DSL as far as you could without the case, and if it's not open enough, the strip will push it closed ever so slightly. I thought I'd get used to it, but since I couldn't open my DSL to the angle I wanted.

The solution is easy enough - you can get a straight edge razor and remove this part, which separates the jacket into two pieces (top and bottom). Since they still snap onto the sides, this solves the problem easily. You do give up protection on the DSL's hinge, but that's not a big problem for me anyway.

The second problem is kind of the same thing - the headphone and power ports do have cut-outs on the jacket, but they aren't big enough for me. You can still hit the power switch somewhat, and you can fool around and get headphones plugged in, but the jacket does get in the way a little too much for comfort.

Again, the solution is simple - take the straight edge razor and heat it up over fire, and then you can easily cut out notches in the jacket. The hard silicon melts easily enough, so you can perform this quickly and painlessly within a few minutes.

Cutting the notches and removing the soft hinge guard solved my issues entirely - I can now open the system as much as I want, headphones can still be used easily, and the power button is no longer obscured.

All in all, I highly recommend this to anyone who is worried about protecting their system. Again, some small modifications might be required, but otherwise, this is a fantastic product.

Just perfect!!!
It\'s everything everyone else says it is, except the downsides. It snapped on with MINIMAL effort (someone mentioned he feared it would scratch), I can access the power button just fine (albeit with my nail.... but i bite my nails, and it\'s still fine). Perfect fit, perfect feel, perfect function. My DS will stay mint condition thanks to it (and look good doing it).

Oh and I find it looks pretty darn nice on a black DS.

Very good case, probably the only \'skin-type\' case you need
The case for most part is made of soft silicon, except for the edges which are made of hard plastic in order to grip the DS Lite and keep it in place. It does hold up surprisingly well (make sure to put the center two hard tabs under the turning wheel of the DS Lite’s top screen, otherwise the bottom cover will fall loose. It should fit snugly). The silicon is not sticky; this however doesn\'t mean it will not collect dust. Like most silicon, lint will eventually gather on the surface. But that is easy enough to wipe off. The case left all the ports open. The square hole for the power button however is cut a bit too low (the top of the power button glazes (barely) against the hard plastic opening). I was still however able to reach the switch to power on and off. Also, the square hole for the power adapter is a bit too small. Even though I was able to still plug in the power adapter, it can easily fall off. This may be fixable with a nail filer.

Overall, the Capdase soft jacket Advance is a great case. You probably don’t need any other case. Although, Hori have recently in December came out with a silicon case (also available at Play-Asia). It’s similar to the Capdase’s case, except it doesn’t cover the ‘turning’ wheel as much (Hori’s silicon case uses just two strip on the turning wheel). Also it has the official Nintendo DS Lite logo on the front. Play-Asia doesn’t have a picture of the Hori silicon case right now. Hopefully, they will post one soon. Otherwise, do a search of the ‘Hori silicon cover’ case on Google, and you will be able to see what it looks like. I don’t think you can go wrong with either case.

By the way, I have a black color DS Lite. I got the blue color case instead of black because the black color case looks too light in the pictures (almost like yellowish-black). Having a blue case over a black DS Lite will not make it ‘navy blue’ in color like the previous reviewer mentioned (he didn’t’ exactly say it will turn blue, but he probably wanted the navy ‘blue’ color DS Lite available in Japan ^^). With the blue cover on the black DS Lite, the color turn to looks grayish-blue. Not bad at all. The baby blue color case however will likely look more vibrant on a white DS Lite than a black one.

Better Than You Think You NEED This
Soft as a babies butt - No Kidding!
Slips into trave cases with ease (NOT sticky like most silicone)
Thinner and Lighter than other similar hard plastic look alikes
Is just rigid enough to stay attached to your ds
Protects without blocking any ports etc.
Now my black ds is the color I want BLUE!!
