by mike24 Great accessory to get if your care about your 3ds
I was not going to get this accessorybut it was only 18 bucks so i got it. It is pretty cool but it doesn't allow you to charge it in the charging dock. Also it makes the 3ds a lot more bulky and thick. Although this accessory makes the 3ds bigger, it protects it nicely. I have the green one because I think it fits nicely woth my flame red 3ds and there was no yellow one when i went to gamestop. I wuld reccomend this product to anyone who wants to keep their 3ds safe and shiny. Always be careful of how you take this thing off my friend once accidently reipped his ds in half while trying to take the nerf armor off.

When I gave a 3DS to my son for his 7th birthday I was worried that he would somehow break it. But then again boys his age make me I get nervous when they are touching any type of electronics. It never occured to me to get a case for it. Then one day he saw the Nerf Armor and said dad we should get this. I was a little skeptical but when I put it on I felt a lot better. It looked like it could take a licking. Sure enough he dropped it once on the cemement but no scratches. Then sure enough somehow he snuck it over to the next door neighbors house and left it on the bumper of their truck. They left in the truck before my son realized that he left it on there. So I get in the care with my wife and down the road I could see it on the side of the road. It had survived somewhat. The door had come apart but the screen was not damaged and there weren't any big dents or scratched. Luckily I was able to have it repaired for a nominal fee since it was new. It terms of its ergonmics my son doesn't have any diffieculty in playing games and he's very particular. Bottom line I'm pleased with it.

I bought a Nintendo 3DS, and I wanted to keep it protected, and I saw this case in a local Gamestop, and I thought 18 bucks wasnt too bad, so I bought it. I immediately put it on my brand new, immaculate, Nintendo 3DS. A few days later, I had a slight drop, but nothing seemed damaged, everything worked properly. soon, the holes for the camera became coated with dust. I followed the instructions and removed the case. My once brand new Nintendo 3DS had scores of ugly, unremovable scratched on the bottom where the case scraped against it. the top only received minor scratches. This case is near worthless. It protects against drops well, but at the cost of heavy scratches. My advice is not to buy this case. Buy a one with a soft lining on it to protect against scratches. What a waste of money.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Vegeta044 A good investment in protection of your 3DS
I received the nerf armor today, it fits the 3DS perfectly and it is made up of the same material as the other nerf armors. It adds about an inch of thickness to the handheld, the foamy material gives it a better grip. The installation of the armor only took 20 seconds (a lot easier than the DSi Xl armor) and it fits snuggly. All the buttons are easily accessible so there was no awkward feeling trying to play a game. The only problem I had was not with the actual product but the lack of ability to chose the color you want. I received two blue armors (one for my aqua blue 3DS and another for my Flame Red one). Overall this is a must have accessory for any 3DS owners because it provides excellent protection without a ton of bulk. (^-^)
Rated 0 out of 10 by therockingdragon cases like this are great but have one problem
cases like this are great they absorbe shock if the system is droped so the systome dose not get damaged unlike a hard case that only protects from scratches and getting chewed on by a dog however this typ of case is bulky it makes it so u have to take the systome out of it if u store it in a case. and the putting the system in and out can scratch the system it also seems to make some dogs think the system is a toy. so if u are the kind of person that keeps the game system in a travel case with all its acessories then try to find a case that is the least bulkyest but if u are getting the 3ds for a younger child or someone that drops stuff a lot then get them this case it will protect it from almost any kind of drop typ "accidents".

My 6yo son has dropped this 3ds too many times to count and still works, thanks to the Nerf case. He just recently dropped it in the snow, he didn't even notice and we couldn't find the 3ds for 2 days. Once the snow melted, we found it, and it still worked! I doubt it would have worked without the case...probably kept it dry and maybe warmer than it would have otherwise been. I never liked how bulky it was but its perfect for small kid hands. It's been about 15 months and we are having to buy a new one after the snow incident and one of our four dogs has chewed a corner of the case (it's that spongy nerf material after all). Love this case, wish it came in more colors for girls, too.
Rated 4 out of 10 by 3DSGuy98 Not too good.
I bought the green nerf case when it came out and it was great the first few days but then the nerf foam started to come off little by little, pretty soon it was getting bad. So I started to take it off and the top came of hard but yet easier at the same time but left scratches on the outside of my 3DS from the hard part inside. So I went onto the bottom and no matter what I did it wouldn't come off. Now I could have gotten it off but I was watching myself pull it and it looked like it was taking the bottom part of my 3DS off! A few days later I was able to get it off with a few scratches on the bottom. Oh and it makes your 3DS EXTREMELY thick!

I myself has just ordered a 3DS Nerf Armor because I think Nerf Armors are awesome. Even though Nerf Armors are bulky they still protect your Nintendo DS System. I have experienced this because I had a old DS which was breaking so I got a Nerf Armor. Then for a special occasion I got the new 3DS and wanted to protect it. That's why I just ordered the Nintendo 3DS Nerf Armor. I believe it arrives on August 15, 2011 for only $17.99 +S&H+Tax. So stop wasting your time and go save your 3DS and go get a Nerf Armor for it's birthday. : ]
Rated 9 out of 10 by CoDemos Good protection for a fairly low price...
Nerf armor has always protected my Nintendo handhelds and I really haven't any complaints thus far except it's semi-rough to remove once it's on without hurting the plastc shell of the armor....but that's a minor complaint and that aside this is essential protection for your investment and probably the best there is for the 3DS thus far. It feels good and isn't overly bulky. Those prone to dropping your system should definitely invest. Did I mention it looks pretty slick too? Good investment for the life of your system.
