PowerA Hybrid Cover

This isn't a case so much as a protective cover meant to keep your screen like new. It's made of a tasteful gray material and acts as a kickstand. Read More

Pros

  • Functions as a kickstand
  • Nice, soft material reminiscent of a Kindle cover
  • Includes a microfiber cleaning cloth

Cons

  • None that we could find

The Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling console in U.S. history for good reason. Not only does it work great as a handheld and home console, but its Joy-Con grip controllers can be paired to your Android phone or PC. At the end of the day, you just can't beat the versatility of a Switch for your game card. There is one big pitfall, though: it's fragile. If you plan on traveling with it, you'll absolutely need a case to keep it safe. So, in the name of science, we experimented with different Switch cases to find the best one.

Our winner, the RDS Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case (available at Amazon for $14.99), is worth every penny, as it's affordable and has tons of awesome features. If you're looking for something that can accommodate the docking station and AC adapter, we recommend the larger Ivoler Deluxe System Case (available at Amazon). Whether you're looking for something simple and inexpensive or all the bells and whistles, we've got some great options.

The RDS case comes with two transparent containers that hold four games each and two SD card holders (for additional storage when you need it).

Best Overall
RDS Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case

The RDS Industries Game Traveler Deluxe has everything I could possibly want in a case. In fact, I’d even say it’s the most well-rounded on this list. The screen protector is nicely cushiony and serves as a buffer between the storage pouch and game cartridges. It also comes with two transparent containers that hold four games each and two SD card holders (for additional storage when you need it).

Our only gripe is with the little all-purpose storage pouch, which is too small. You can probably fit a pair of earbuds or joy-con wrist straps in there, but not much else. Aside from this minor nitpick, this case really has a lot to offer. Plus, it comes in all different colors and the outside material, made of hard rubber, is very durable.

If you want to take your docking station or AC adapter with you, this is not the bag. Check out the Ivoler (see below) instead.

Pros

  • Ideal for traveling light

  • Plenty of space for your Switch and games

Cons

  • Doesn't hold any of your other accessories

Not only is the Ivoler durable, but it also holds absolutely everything, including the docking station and nineteen games.

Best Large Case
Ivoler Deluxe System Case

The Ivoler case is an absolute beast and we mean that in the best way possible. Not only is it durable, it holds absolutely everything, including the docking station and nineteen games. And yet I was able to fit it inside a medium-sized backpack. If LAN parties are your thing, then this is the perfect case for that, and at a great price.

While there’s a lot we love about this case, we do have one minor nitpick. The game cartridge holders are almost too snug. I never thought I’d ever utter that sentence, but you actually have to use some force to get the games out.

Pros

  • Extra spacious and durable

  • Holds everything you need for your Switch

Cons

  • The cartridge sleeves are just a little too snug

Product image of Tomtoc Slim Nintendo Switch Case
Tomtoc Slim Nintendo Switch Case

The Tomtoc case doesn’t hold as many games as other cases, but it’s still a personal favorite of mine. It's the thinnest case on this list, with a sophisticated design that doesn’t scream “gamer.” The one downside is that it only holds eight games and a Switch console. There's no storage pouch for additional accessories.

Pros

  • Ultra-thin, stylish design

  • Holds eight game cartridges

Cons

  • Doesn't hold any of your other accessories

For those that like options when they travel, the Hestia Goods case holds up to twenty game cartridges. Pack the whole game collection if you want to. For the low price point, it's not too shabby.

The thing we like best about it is the long pull tab that sits in the main cavity. This feature makes taking your Switch out of the case easy as pie. All you have to do is pull the tab towards you and out pops your beloved system.

Pros

  • Perfect for travel

  • Holds up to 20 game cartridges

  • Easy to remove your Switch

Cons

  • None that we could find

Product image of PowerA Hybrid Cover
PowerA Hybrid Cover

The PowerA hybrid cover is more of a screen protector than a traditional case, reminiscent of a Kindle cover. The material is nice and looks more expensive than it really is. We like how you can use it as a kickstand, too. Oh, and it comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth. Begone, finger smudges!

Pros

  • Functions as a kickstand

  • Nice, soft material reminiscent of a Kindle cover

  • Includes a microfiber cleaning cloth

Cons

  • None that we could find

Product image of TechMatte Nintendo Switch amCase
TechMatte Nintendo Switch amCase

The Techmatte case holds up to fourteen game cartridges and has a detachable wrist strap. Those features are neat, but we couldn’t really look past the flimsy straps inside the case. They’re just not strong enough to keep the Switch console in place, which kind of defeats the purpose. The case itself also has a little too much flex to it.

Pros

  • Holds up to 14 game cartridges

  • Detachable wrist strap

Cons

  • Flimsy straps

  • The case has just a little too much flex

While we liked the rubber material the Orzly case is made of, the fit is another matter. You can actually hear the console move around quite a bit if you shake the case back and forth. It may not be the best option if you're paranoid about your Switch.

Pros

  • Sturdy rubber material

Cons

  • Not a very snug fit

Product image of Fintie Protective Case for Nintendo Switch
Fintie Protective Case for Nintendo Switch

If you need a simple cover that’ll protect your Switch screen, the Finite cover is a good budget-friendly option. It's a snug fit and the cover comes in different colors, too.

However, the material feels like a cheaply-made wallet. I wouldn't expect this one to last more than a couple of months. The cover also works as a kickstand, but it's not very intuitive. It basically took two adult people to figure out how to use the kickstand.

Pros

  • Fits snugly and comes in a variety of colors

  • Functions as a kickstand

Cons

  • Feels a bit cheaply made

  • The kickstand's not very intuitive

What You Should Know About Nintendo Switch Cases

How Should a Nintendo Switch Case fit?

The Switch is an amazing piece of hardware, but it’s expensive and incredibly delicate. That’s why your case should fit the dimensions of your console. The better your case fits your console, the more protected it will be. However, it’s important to understand what these cases can and cannot do. They’re designed to absorb shocks from minor drops and repel a bit of water, but that’s about it. If you’re traveling with your console, we’d recommend sticking the case inside of a backpack for additional protection.

How Do I Clean a Nintendo Switch Case?

Before you clean your case, you’ll want to first remove your gaming console and put it somewhere far, far away (electronics and water don’t mix). We’d recommend spot cleaning the case with dish soap and warm water. You’ll want to make sure the case is completely dry before putting your Switch inside.
