Video Review: Waterfield Nintendo DS Lite case (for classy gamers)

The Nintendo DS lite is well-recognized as a cleverly designed portable gaming console appealing to the young and old. Still, if you’re a working professional and you love playing with your DS lite during your downtime, how are you going to have your colleagues take you seriously?

Consider this… Waterfield’s been making classy yet study Apple Powerbook bags back in the day and their traditional styling lives on. Consider upping your ante with one of their classy Waterfield’s Nintendo DS Lite cases.

As detailed in my review, the design features:
– Ballistic Nylon exterior
– Double layer leather flap
– Super soft lining to keep the DS Lite scratch free
– Storage for 6 DS Games
– Stylus holder
– Rear back pocket w/ Self Locking Zipper
– Pull strap (to ease removing your unit from the case)

At US$39, I know it’s a little pricey, but watch the video review to see the level of detail that goes into the case design. If you’ve got doubts, check out the SFbags FAQ or see Alec’s photo gallery of his DS lite case.

If you’re interested, you can order one online at SFbags.com.

    Thanks for sharing this info! Cool! Btw, does this bag fit a non-Lite DS? Coz I didnt buy the Lite, but the initial version…thnks

    @C.S.: I don’t think it’ll fit the original DS since it’s much larger in size. However, according to the SFbags FAQ, several customers have used their Large PSP Gear Pouch with their original DS.

    I used to play with the gameboy colour many many moons ago. It was great fun with games like Tiny Toons, Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog and that Ninja game. Nowadays, I can’t do that anymore as my highly distractable son will immediately jump onto my lap and take over!

    If i have my ds lite in a Crystal Case willit still fit?

    @thebigfish37: It fits the DS lite pretty snug, so no, it probably won’t fit with the crystal case on.
