Infendo - March 22, 2017

"It’s not often that you find something that you couldn’t live without, especially while thinking that you didn’t actually need it. I felt this way before I first laid my hands on the Switch, and I felt that way about owning a case for my Switch before I laid my hands on the Waterfield CitySlicker."

so sexy

great design. slim product. fits in a backpack or in my tech 15 inch messenger bag. most grown-ass-man case you can own. i upgraded from a little kids case with mario mushroom designs on it -_-


Great case for the switch

Great case. Looks good. Functions very well. Switch fits snug. All around great.

So far so good!

Only had it a week or so but so far its been pretty nice! Case looks and feels good in the hands and appears to be well equipped in protecting my switch from my mistakes.


I'll echo that while the magnetic snaps do require a bit of babysitting to ensure that they're secure, the bag is beautifully designed and does everything I need it to.


Absolute Legendary case! I accidentally ordered a duplicate and Gary was nice enough to give me a few options. But when my first order came to my door, I was so happy with the quality of the bags that I kept the duplicate order!

What 3rd party power banks fit in the CitySlicker?

A customer confirmed fitting the Anker PowerCore+ 20100 in the rear mesh pocket. Since there are so many options out there, if you do find your favorite brand fitting, please let us know.

What is a production run?

Just like any sewing shop, there's a limited number of units we can produce each week/month while keeping up our high standards. Once we hit our limit, the production run is cutoff and we begin taking orders for the new production run with a new promise date.

What is the red pocket?

The red pocket is made from Ultrasuede micro-fiber which protects the Switch screen and also helps to clean the screen every time you insert and remove your Switch.

What type of leather do you use?

We use naturally-tanned, lightly treated leather. Each piece is one of a kind and displays the natural texture of the hide. Over time the leather should show character like a good leather bomber jacket.

How do you suggest I clean the ballistic nylon?

The ballistic nylon is *very* durable and will take scrubbing with a stiff brush and mild soap. Blot with towels/rags and let the case dry out. This should have the case looking good as new.

How do you suggest I clean the leather?

Actually, we suggest not doing anything. Part of the beauty of highly distressed leather develops as it gets used over time— with rain or getting bumped around. Leather conditioners will darken and alter the leather, maybe not something you desire. If at some point you want to condition the leather - we suggesting using Mink Oil. This will darken a bit at first - but will keep the leather very nice. You can also spread the oils around and smooth them out a bit with a hair dryer and your hand. Any leather discoloration or marks are straight from the actual hide itself; it's part of the character of the leather. That’s how you know it’s the real thing. Each hide has it own look; it's unique just like you. With naturally tanned leather, there's always going to be a bit of character on it that's hard to control. It's one of the reasons we like it so much, you'll always be getting a one-of-a-kind bag.
