Best case for a 3DS?

I just picked up the Fire Emblem 3DS and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a case to carry it in? Any specific ones that you feel provide more protection over the others? Call me a worrywart, but I just want to protect my investment!

Mmm...that's a conundrum....On one hand, you want a case that can still show off your snazzy new limited 3DS design, and on the other, I like to use this:

An aluminum frame wrapped in fabric....it just feels so right.

I was actually looking at that, but i really don't know how I feel about it.

Yeah, definitely don't want to cover up that sexy fire emblem design!

I think I was looking more into a full zip-up case, kind of like I have for my PSP.

I have this from my old 3DS and this unused full body skin. I don't have any need for them anymore after getting an XL so I'll send them to you if you want (just pay for shipping). I wouldn't use the touch screen part of the skin though..one of the reviewers on Amazon says that they accidently lifted the screen while trying to remove it.

I have been using this one since the gba days:

Worked great for ds lite, psp, and now the 3ds. The one i use is the first and last pic on this page, though. The middle pics are for another case. The original instructions had you putting the system in the velcro front and games/accessories in the zipper pouch. I have always put the system in the zipper area, though.

I can even use this case to hold two 3ds systems when i feel like trying to get double street pass hits by carrying mine and my wife's.

Is the skin hard to put on? Does that spray stuff leave anything on console if I decided one day to remove it? Would it damage the console paint?

sorry, just got a 3ds

Continuing this discussion, anyone have a good case to carry around a 3DS XL and a handful of games/cords?

I use this one from BBY for my 3DS XL, make sure you get the new version which has been modified so it can take 3DS games, it fits 6 games but won't take cords

Man, do I feel cheap when I see people using other cases.

I just use this one. haha.

My brother had it laying around after his DS Lite died, so I nabbed it. Fits snug, pretty durable, and can hold 12 cartridges. Must say I love it haha

That case in my post from 2/11/13? It fits the xl too. Pretty snug in the zipper part, bur I can zip it up and still have the velcro part for games. It could hold 9 games in those plastic 3 cart cases.
