The case itself is durable and quite hard, with a plush inside to keep the system free of scratches. There is a flap which lowers over the 3DS XL and has 4 pockets to store DS and 3DS games in. My only niggle is that one of the pockets for the games is a little too small, and it required a bit of a squeeze to fit a game in. There's also a larger netted pocket in the top of the case to store more games, styluses, wires, anything fairly flat. The flap to store games in also shields the ds from anything in this larger pocket, so the 3DS XL won't get scratched from any objects you hold there. Other than that, It's made of good quality material, and has none of the nasty branding logos that litter other cases I have seen, that's my main reason for buying this one : ) You get excellent value with this case.
