Quality/Usability : The Capdase Life Style Urban Wallet S is specifically for the Nintendo DS Lite. The Urban Wallet is made of durable nylon.

On the Urban Wallet, there is a plastic holder. There are two small clips on the plastic holder that clips onto the top right of the DS. If you have a wrist strap, these clips will not be able to clip on. The DS Lite is placed into this holder. There is an opening at the bottom to allows access to the GBA Slot-2 and at the top, there is an opening for Slot-1 and to charge your DS without having to take it out.

Underneath the DS Lite holder is a flap. This flap is similar to that found in an ordinary wallet. The flap has three pockets, one with a clear window for identification cards and the other two can be used for credit cards or business cards. On the backside of the flap is another pocket. This can also be used for credit cards, business cards or for your cash.

On the back of the case are two elastic bands. These hold two DS games of your choice for when you want to change games.

The Life Style Urban Wallet case is held closed with velcro and has a keyring if you want to attach either the Urban Wallet to a bag, attach your keys to it or use the included wrist strap.

Conclusion : Overall, the Capdase Life Style Urban Wallet S is a unique product. Capdase tried to make this an all-purpose case by incorporating your DS Lite and as a wallet for your ID cards and cash. The that concerns me is the elastic to hold your DS games. If for whatever reason the elastic may be loose or if you are moving around, the DS game may fall out. It would of been nice if it was a pocket instead. Another flaw is the DS clipping on to the holder. I use a wrist strap since I am clumsy at times. But with the wrist strap in place, the Urban Wallet is not able to clip into the DS since it is occupied. So in order to use this, I have to take the wrist strap off.
