has a nice, rigid outer shell with a great woven nylon ...
October 15, 2017
I bought this case because I am deathly afraid of destroying my precious Switch. Many cases, official or otherwise, offer very little in the way of protection. This case, however, has a nice, rigid outer shell with a great woven nylon exterior feel. It's also not too heavy, being only slightly noticeably heavier in the hand than the official Splatoon 2 Switch case, although this one can hold much more and has protection beyond a piece of cardboard. Another feature I really like are the depressions in the shell. I originally thought they were just feet, but they allow you to seat the switch with joycons attached and make sure you're centering it in the case with minimal effort. It also gives you peace of mind because you know the switch isn't going anywhere once you strap it down.
This is definitely the case to get for protection, but it doesn't compromise much on looks or bulk to achieve it. I really appreciate the color coordination with the joycons. I bought the red zipper model for my neon red and blue switch, and even though the red is deeper than the neon red joycon, it matches well due to the difference in shininess. I don't personally have the blue one, but from the pictures provided it seems to be similar.
The side of the game holder flap that goes on top of the screen is also very soft and screen friendly, though I admit I am a little anxious about not touching it, despite using the touchscreen all the time on the Switch. It just has that feel. There are also enough slots on the other side (and in another whole flap!) to hold every triple-A title announced on the switch through 2018, and/or some microSD cards with extra/backup data.
Which brings me to the top zipper pouch. Even though one of the Amazon product images shows the top pocket holding a charger and extra joycons, I was skeptical that the case would zip cleanly after all that extra stuff was packed in. However, it holds it all very well, and is still light enough to lug around with me almost literally everywhere I go. Both zippers offer no problems, easily opening and closing even with a pixel charger, USB-C and USB-C-to-A cables, and the joycon bumper sliders in addition to the switch itself.
This is all around a great case, allowing you to take everything you need to play your switch with you and be secure in knowing it will be protected. It doesn't have an official Switch logo on it, but if that's what you want you wouldn't be here reading this anyway.
