Easy enough to put on (takes a little bit of work), covers all of the system perfectly. It has holes and the like in the right spots, like in front of the camera and the headphone jack. It could withstand a good blow, but I wouldn't feel good about dropping it from a distance. For normal "hitting" it's great. I got a clear case so that I can still see the beautiful color and also so the two stickers I put on wouldn't come off, and for both of that it's perfect. I would for sure recommend this to somebody that wants extra protection for their beautiful 3DS.
