One Amazing Little Pouch

As many SFBags products, the CitySlicker Case for Nintendo Switch is no exception. It provides the exact size for the unit, and always nice leather feel when you're holding it. If you're familiar with SFBags products, then this one really feels just like it, the best, all around package for the Switch. I got myself two units, one for the brother. He LOVES it too, and its his first SFBags products. Keep up creating good products folks!

Classy Case

Classy and sleek look that stands out from the crowd.


CitySlicker Case for Nintendo Switch


CitySlicker Case for Nintendo Switch

Worth the money

As i was looking for a case for my Switch, i saw a review for the Waterfield case. At first, i was not sure if i want it because the price is higher than most cases. However, I decided that i would buy this one because it look so much better than others. The delivery was very fast, took about 2 days to reach to Viet Nam. The case is exactly as described on the web site. The best part about this case is the leather look and texture also the back pocket fits perfectly for a switch stand. I simply love the profesional design and look of this case so I would say that you get an excelent product worth the money spent.

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.
