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."


The Switch CitySlicker is designed to carry along the Switch or Switch Lite + essential accessories in a compact, lightweight case. The interior has specific pockets to hold the following: 


  • Switch Console with attached Joy-Cons or Switch Lite
  • 2 Straps
  • USB-C cable
  • HDMI cable
  • 5 Switch game cards or MicroSD Cards
  • Anker PowerCore+ 20100
  • Optional: 10 or 20 Game Leather Card Holder fits in the CitySlicker

*NOTE: The size for the Switch or Switch Lite in Skull & Co.'s GripCase also fits other 3rd party grip cases like these popular brands: 

  • Skull & Co. GripCase

Customer-vetted Devices - From Customer Reviews: 

  • Satisfiye grip case fits in Switch Lite in Skull Case (Stephen H., Camarillo, US)


Optional Accessories include (purchase separately):


*NOTE: The front pocket stores accessories like a power supply, cords, and other small items. The CitySlicker also fits inside other Waterfield Bags.


No skimping here. The CitySlicker flap is made with not one, but two, layers of premium full grain leather. It will get softer and better-looking every time you use it. 


“My first impression is the leather: this is perhaps one of the best leathers I have come across. It is pleasant to touch (and smells good, too). The rest of the case itself is very well made, too and seems durable.” - Thinh T., Vietnam


“I spend most times just smelling this case because of that rich leather right on the front. The quality and craftsmanship is unparalleled, especially in this cookie-cutter and mass-produced world we live in. This piece would be well worth a higher price, and seems like a bargain for its current MSRP. ” - Matthew B., New York, USA


“I just got my Grizzly today and man, am I impressed! Looks even better than in the pictures. Quality, fit, and finish are spot on and the style really works in a business environment.” - Alexander


“Yes, I'm an adult who has a Switch.  Pulling out my Switch in something that is age-appropriate is definitely something I was tirelessly looking for. WaterField answered that question with the CitySlicker. Always get compliments when I pull it out. This is good for me and anyone else who likes something that doesn't have all the gaming designs or bulkiness of the usual cases for the Switch. You get what you pay for. ” - DTA, California



“As both a business professional and gaming enthusiast, it's often through gritted teeth that I pick out case accessories for my handheld consoles. Too often the only options available seem to be designed exclusively for the young teenage audience, with an over-emphasis on loud colors and tacky aesthetics. Enter WaterField, whom I had the pleasure of discovering through the recommendation of a co-worker. These are easily the most professional and sleek-looking cases I have seen for gaming equipment, and I no longer have any hesitation to bring my Switch with me in a questionably designed case. Their superb craftsmanship has turned me into a lifelong customer, and I cannot recommend their products enough.” - Blake B. 



“As someone in their mid-30s, I feel like the Legend of Zelda-themed case that I used was a little childish-looking, and I was constantly stashing it in my bag as soon as I'd removed the console. When I saw the CitySlicker, I was in love all over again. The case is well-constructed, and with thoughtful design touches. I'm thrilled with it, and I don't have to hide my Switch case anymore. For professionals that want to get their game on, I haven't seen another case that can rival it.” Rob O., California


Personalize your CitySlicker and add a matching Sling Strap. The leather tab on the strap comes in the same colors as the CitySlicker flap, so you can match or complement your case.  The strap has an easy, one-hand adjustable cam lock so you can modify the fit of your CitySlicker in real time. No need to take it off your shoulder to make any changes.  


You can also add other attachments, like a leather Wrist Loop or carabiner


"I bought this case because it seemed just as sturdy if not more so than others on the market. This case is easily one of the most protective cases. It's sturdy on the outside with a soft interior that protects all elements of the Switch. I also purchased this because I knew I'd have my Switch during my commute and around at work. My office would frown upon video games so I wanted something that would be subtle when I took it on my lunch break outside the office. I have no problem carrying this around. It holds everything I need and is great every day carry." - Paul
