Perfect Pouch

I was hesitant to purchase this initially due to the cost but after watching some reviews I decided to give it a shot and I'm happy I did. I have the switch lite wax canvas model and use it in conjunction with the official Nintendo lite switch lite flip case and it fits perfectly. I wanted a bit more protection when I through my switch lite in my backpack. Definitely would purchase it again. Quality is great and I love the magnet system. Also has a good amount of coushine. I don't use the interior pockets for anything but I could definitely through my headphones in there if I wanted to. Definitely haven't seen anything like it.

I am an adult.

I am an adult woman nearing middle age and I still love video games, but I’ve moved past the stage where bright colors and cheap imported materials bring me joy. Typically the only other option in the gaming accessory world is the exact opposite, with “black, all black, devoid of any color or emotion” and I’m desperate for some middle ground!
And then WaterField saunters in with their Switch Slip Case showcasing subtlety and sophistication. The waxed canvas and leather show character, while the functionality makes no concessions. The magnetic strip closure is secure but quick to open; no zipper frustration here. The plush padding of the interior cradles and protects the Switch, so I’m not paranoid of what else is in my backpack. I’m impressed how well the Slip Case fits the Switch Lite with a Skull & Co. case and trigger grips installed; snug but not tight. And arguably as important is how the look and design of this simple case makes me feel. A gentle warm, fuzzy feeling washes over me just by glancing at it.
If there were anything to change about the Slip Case, it would be to add more color options of the waxed canvas version (navy is *very* popular right now but some lighter/mid tones in both the canvas and leather would be welcome as well). While the black polyurethane webbing loop for the attachments is likely very hearty and useful, visually it doesn’t add much and if given the option when ordering I wouldn’t have added it to my bag.
Overall this is easily the nicest (non-technology) gaming accessory I own and it’s certainly wetted my appetite for more WF gear.

Just what I was looking for

I wanted a Switch Lite case that would be slim while still being able to fit the Skull & Co case with grips on it, and this fit perfectly. I traveled with it on a long flight and it fit into my backpack snugly without adding much additional volume.


The Slip Case for the Switch has one main compartment with pockets designed to hold the Switch Lite, Switch with attached Joy-cons, and the Switch in a Skull case. A pocket can fit a 10-Game Card Holder and the charging cable. 


  • Size #1 fits the Switch with attached Joy-cons
  • Size #2 fits the Switch in Skull Case
  • Size #3 fits the Switch Lite
  • Size #1 fits the Switch Lite in Skull Case


The magnetic closure lets you re-charge your Switch without letting people know what's inside. 


"I was admittedly unsure about the magnetic closure but having owned and carried the Slip Case for a couple weeks now, it might as well be buttoned shut. That magnet is strong! It's an elegant solution." - Daniel P., Mountain Home, US
