This case is amazing! It protects my Switch great and the bag is very high quality! Would buy from again!

Money well spent

You can throw away your money for unnecessary things,
or you can buy this case.

Love it!

I love the designs and the choice of colors are so beautiful! It was so hard picking a color but I'm very happy with what I picked. The fit, the design, the color, and the little pockets that are available for both the cartridges and other stuff are great! Great product and great service!

Beautiful Case, Great Company

I have been looking at Waterfield Design's website since the Sony PS Vita launched back in 2011. I never did purchase the Vita but recently I bought a Nintendo Switch Lite edition and I wanted the best case I could for it. As such I went back to Waterfield Design's site to compare the Switch cases. I had already been looking and comparing the cases long before I got my Switch and knew that I wanted the CitySlicker Case.

So I made the purchase, received my confirmation and then the email saying it was out of stock but would be shipped as soon as possible. Here it was done in just a couple days and it was shipped 2 day express via FedEx. When it arrived and I opened it, I could tell from a glance at the quality of this item. The black ballistic nylon and that chocolate brown leather front flap. When I was making my decision, it was between the chocolate and grizzly leather and I don't think either one would have been a bad choice.

I've been using it for a few weeks now and every time I pick up my case to pull the Switch out, I take a few seconds just to look at the case. It's so easy to get the Switch in and out and it is really protected. The game slots on the front is a nice touch. Not sure how much I'll use them as I'm a big digital purchaser, but I figure over time I will have multiple physical games.

Bottom line is if you want the best case you can for your Switch/Switch Lite, get the CitySlicker as you will not regret it. Now to decide what my next Waterfield Design purchase will be.

The Best Nintendo Switch Case!

Customer Service (5/5): I communicated with the Waterfield team via their website/Gorgias chat. Considering I am on the other side of world, they actually reply very quickly and are able to answer all of my questions properly. I entered the wrong province for my address by accident, so huge shout out to Jasmine for taking care of my request to fix my address and for addressing all of my concerns.

Shipping (5/5): My CitySlicker arrived within 1-4 business days (international shipping). It arrive about 2-3 days ahead of it's scheduled release date, which is such a pleasant treat.

Product (5/5): This product is incredible. The quality lives up to the Waterfield standard. I own a SwitchPack and I could not help but purchase this CitySlicker. Waterfield products are the best and most premium bags I have ever owned. I am now a proud owner of 2 Waterfield products. I can't get enough of this chocolate leather, and it just ages beautifully. The carabiner is what it is but it's a quality carabiner, as expected of Waterfield. I got the CitySlicker in the "Switch in Skull Case" size and the back pocket on the inside is big enough to fit a Hori Play Stand, a New Nintendo 3DS XL, or a PlayStation Vita... While the Switchis inside in a Mumba Blade or Skull & Co. Grip Case. Deceptively large, which is a good thing. Love the aesthetic of the CitySlicker, so unassuming and elegant. You wouldn't know there's a video game console without taking a look inside. I highly recommend this product. Hands down the best Nintendo Switch case out there to date together with the SwitchPack! Thank you Waterfield!

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:

  • Mumba Blade Case
  • Orzly Comfort Grip Case
  • JETech Grip Cover
  • Yoowa Clear Grip Case
  • Yoowa Soft Grip Case

Customer-vetted Devices - From Customer Reviews:
  • Satisfiye grip case fits in Switch Lite in Skull Case (Stephen H., Camarillo, US)
The front pocket stores accessories like a power supply, cords, and other small items. The CitySlicker also fits inside other Waterfield Bags.


No skimping. The flap is not one, but two, layers of premium full grain leather; even the card slots are leather. It gets softer and better-looking every time you use it. 


"I feel like a creep when I try to secretly smell the leather flap (it smells so good) and don't get me started on the inside. It feels like a newborn. Soft, silky and plush. Sometimes I wish to be a Switch myself. It just looks so comfy in there." - Dustin S.


"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
