Avirex Eagle DS case.
This system pouch looks better than most others I’ve seen, as it has a look of durability, holds up to six carts, and closes with a simple velcro flap — while staying compact.
By comparison, the Waterfield All-In-One DS Lite clutch, my favorite commercially sold case, looks bulky while carrying only three games. To its credit, the Waterfield also has an extra stylus slot and a big back pocket.
Because you slide in your system horizontally, the Avirex pouch also looks like it will accomodate a DSi’s slightly wider frame without any problem. The Waterfield, which seems form-fitted for DS Lites, requires a bit of effort when pushing the DSi into it.
The ¥3,900 ($40!) Avirex case comes in four colors:
Whichever color you choose, please don’t imitate the product shots and hook the pouch onto a belt loop with a carabiner. This is not a good look. This is not what’s hood. This is about as terrible as camo cargo shorts. Stop it.
