The case I've been looking for

I was looking for a leather case that was practical and looked good. After sifting through a lot of choices with synthetic leather, I stumbled on Waterfield. The combination of their product video review and the high-res shots I found from review articles sold me. It fits the Switch like a glove. The care/attention to detail reflects. It's functional and feels great in the hand. Highly recommend. I got the crimson/red leather case. The color in the pictures are in alignment with the real thing!

Top notch quality and best design in the same category

The best and the quality is well worth enough for me to pay even though the tax and shipping fees is very high.

Christian S. (California, United States)

The Cityslicker is the new go to case for my switch whenever I go somewhere. The overall product is top tier.

Pride W. (Michigan, United States)
Great quality case

I’m absolutely in love with my switch case. Blown away by the quality of the item, and you get what you pay for. This is going to serve me well for YEARS to come.

Amy P. (New York, United States)
Excited, then a little let down

Hi Gary! I was impressed when I ordered the CitySlicker case for my switch. I placed my order and it shipped ten minutes later and I had it within two days. But when I opened the package, I felt let down. I feel like I paid a premium for this case, and the Grizzley flap is all scratched. I know that is the nature of the leather, but I think it should come to me without the scratches. They scratches and marks should be my own and tell my story. Instead I feel like I got a case that was laying around the warehouse. And there was no packaging to protect it during the shipping.
I guess this does not take away from the functionality, but it was a little of a let down when I opened it.

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 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
