Infendo Review: The Waterfield Cityslicker Switch Case

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."

This is the nicest Nintendo Switch Case...EVER

Any time I buy a new device, I check Waterfield's offerings first because they customize their products to specific devices. I also like how they design their products and the choice of materials. The execution is high quality, and everything is made to last. So, when I bought the switch, I found this case and based on my past experiences buying Waterfield products either new or used, I didn't even hesitate to go with this.
The leather flap on this is great. It smells so good! The leather flap has these magnetic snaps that have solid snap when they are locked in. I like hearing that snap. I can either leave the joycons attached the switch and it fits perfectly in the main area of the pouch or i can disconnect the joycons like if I have the wrists thingies attached the joycon and I can place the switch without joycons in the back-interior pocket and the joycons fit side by side in the main pocket. I bought the card holder in case i decide to buy physical games but i also find the card holder kind of works as a stiffener for the switch.
I think I could squeeze another two joycons in it, but I also understand it is designed to hold the Anker PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C which I don't have but I'm thinking about getting. As it is now, I like the slim profile.
For what this case is designed for, it does the job perfectly. It allows you to carry your Nintendo Switch in portable mode with room for portable related accessories, but it doesn’t give you away as a gamer and it looks great. And like my other Waterfield products, I'm sure this case will outlive this device and I will find another purpose for it later down the road as I have done with my Sony PSP cases, point and shoot camera pouch, laptop sleeves, cable pouches etc.
Thanks Gary and SF Fam for creating another great product!

Perfect as always

The best Switch travel case there is. Period.


A very well made case. Looks good and does what you need for a case.

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.
