Given the amount of DSi XL's around I was surprised and disappointed to find that there aren't many cases on the market. Well, there are, but few ticked the only two boxes I had i) practicality ii) stylish. Now, of course the price would be important too, but, not that important .... I bought this case because it was the best of a limited selection of what I was looking for. However, it is practical, it is stylish, it will keep your shiny best friend scratch free and it doesn't cost a fortune. The downside is that it can be fiddly to get the DSi in and out, will let the dust in at the sides and I guess with time the elastic (used to hold flap in place, similar to a notebook) will stretch but hey I guess there will be a 'new best friend' come along before that happens and I'll have to go on the search for a new case.
Just one last comment; I did read the review that suggested this was not leather (before I purchased it). To be honest, you can't even buy a leather key fob for a tenner so I wouldn't have expected it to be leather. However, it does clearly state on the packaging that it is leather.
Delivery stated was 2 months but this was delivered in the 3rd week after order.
