Accessory Review: Waterfield Design Cases for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Life - April 17, 2017

"When it comes to premium cases for things, WaterField Design have got the market cornered as far as portable Nintendo consoles go."

Customer Reviews

Based on 56 reviews
quite satisfied so far

I like the look and premium feel of the pouch. Little touches such as the interior fabric of the front pouch are really nice.
Compared to my previous pouch, the waterfield is more compact while providing more and better extra storage with that front pouch.
I like the top zipper that curves around one edge which allows for easy insertion and retrieval of the switch system.
I am quite satisfied with pouch. Now I just have to find a fitting D-ring to put on so I can attach a handle in a way that will minimize stress on the leather loop


NEW! Pouch for Nintendo Switch

Perfect for a bag in a bag!

I have the ballistic black nylon pouch, and I definitely recommend it as a protective sheath for the switch while inside a briefcase. It's lightweight and packs flat, but it's durable and has just a bit of padding from the thick fabric. It's also got a fuzzy lining that helps clear dust and prints off the switch as you use it. There's room for a USB cable, the joycon grips, or some games in the front pocket. My hori stand fits in the main compartment with the switch too.
Don't expect to fit the charging cable/wall plug or joycon grips in this thing though.
I also own the city slicker case for my 3ds, and assuming the switch model is similar I'd say the storage capacity is about the same as this pouch. What you get with that case is extra protection, and style.

Really great commuting pouch

I wanted a slim pouch that fit into my small backpack for commuting with my Switch. This pouch is pretty much perfect for my needs. It has high quality materials, enough storage space, and just enough protection for my Switch. My only wish is that the zipper direction was reversed for the main compartment. This would make it easier to access the Switch when the pouch sits vertically in my bag. Right now I have to take the pouch out of my backpack entirely to access the Switch.

Great minimalist case for Switch

High quality material and contruction from the ballistic nylon to the locking zippers and especially the stitching. Having the opening be half the case, instead of just one side, makes it easier to avoid zipper scratching. Pocket is perfect for a charging cable, earbuds or the joy con straps.

What is a locking zipper?

When the YKK zipper is folded down the zipper "locks" and prevents the zipper from sliding.

What is deer tan leather?

The leather we use is highly distressed cow hide made to feel like deer skin. The leather is designed to get smoother and softer with some use.
