so, first off, let me explain what i already have for my nintendo switch:
-a Dockable clear Case Compatible with Nintendo Switch, by FYOUNG -2 physical games -a Nintendo Switch Adjustable Charging Stand - a Hermitshell Hard EVA Travel Case ($6.99-$14.99)
i was skeptical of this case at first, it seemed very generic and didn't have many reviews yet. but, i am happy for taking the plunge.
so for my first test i compared it to my current case: a Hermitshell Hard EVA Travel Case. i grabbed a few 2.5lbs weights, making it a little over 10lbs to see how much weight it takes before showing signs of caving in. these were placed upon a dumbell, so the weight was put all on a small area. i tested it on several areas of both products. my results: the Rayvol EVA Hardshell Travel Carry Case won on each of them. i placed the weights on the edges with zippers and the center of the front and back.
for my second test, i placed my Switch in both and shook it as hard as i could for any signs of shifting around. this was actually quick to determine: again, the Rayvol was the winner. see, the Rayvol case actually straps in the switch AND fits snug. the Hermitshell doesnt secure the switch at all, so if you happen to lift the case while unzipped, your switch is gonna find the floor quick.
my third test was screen coverage. both cases use a flap in the center to cover your screen from being damaged. both dont cover the screen completely, but the Rayvol case covered about 20% more of the screen.
other "features" the Rayvol case has over my Hermitshell case are: -extra space for my accessories, away from the switch itself. -a tab to pull your switch securely out from its snug area. -a handle, all be it, not the best "feeling" handle, it feels secure enough. -beefier zippers with more durable teeth. -better grip on outer part of the case.
now, the hermitshell case isnt horrible: it, plainly speaking, serves a different purpose. its good for light traveling, like in a purse or going over to a friends house down the road. it also looks more fashionable.
but, if you want actual protection (one of the main purposes of a case imo) for things like carry on luggage or accidentally throwing something heavy on it while its in your car, then this is the case for you.
My product review of Rayvol EVA Hardshell Travel Carry Case for the Nintendo Switch. Love it .The price is great too. I can carry everything I need on the go ! you can carry 29 games And Nintendo switch . Charging cables ,Hori stand and charging bank . Earbuds cleaning rag and Route+ Bluetooth audio USB transceiver . All in one cases. So hard case so to keep your Nintendo switch nice and safe. That’s why I love my Rayvol EVA Hardshell traveling carry case .
So I've had a couple of Switch cases over the time I've had my Switch at launch. It was the YouTube channel Nintendo Prime where I saw their video for this case and gave it a good recommendation where I decided to give it a shot. Nintendo Prime did not lead me wrong. It has more game storage (29 physical game cards) than any case in its price range. It is hard shelled to protect the Switch and has a roomy upper compartment to carry items like headphones, Switch power charger and cleaning cloths amongst other things. Plus its outer design kinda lets the Switch travel with you in an incognito fashion which has the potential to repel potential thieves because by looking at the outside they might think there's nothing of importance in there. It is a great bang for the buck case and for new Switch owners should be a must-buy.
This case is perfect for a Switch user on the go! It absorbs shock and drop, and it fits everything you might need in a compact case. I use it a lot to keep my console safe! I have my switch, controllers, AC adaptor, 7 games, HDMI Cable and the Joy Con adaptor controller! Totally recommend
Got this case on the recommendation of a friend with a promo code from a YouTuber I watch. Couldn’t have asked for more, very protective yet not bulky. Looks good and functions exactly as advertised. I now feel safe traveling with my switch.
This product fulfills what I wanted in a Switch case. Before this I tried the amazon basics one and while that one was good it did not have enough space to accommodate an extra pair of joycons. This case has enough space for an extra pair of joycons, the oem chargers and even a HDMI cable all while the switch is inside the case. All in all it is a bang for your buck. If you want a slim case then go for the amazon basics one but it is only good for the keeping the switch and a few games.
There is a lot about this case. My original case was the Legend of Zelda case (only held the switch and a few of my games). This is a perfect case to get if you don't have one, or upgrade to if you have a minimal case. It has a good chunk of room as well and the ability to hold 29 games. I was actually surprised that it weighed much less than my original case (which is smaller btw) even with more stuff packed in it
I have been using the case for about two weeks now. I've mostly used it to take my Switch to and from work, where I use it on my lunch break. In the future I expect to use it in more scenarios but that's mostly it so far. I'm a regular Nintendo Switch user, I play about 1-2 hours every day, and on weekdays a half hour on my lunch break while at work. My initial impressions are very positive.
I've previously used a case from Orzly and this case is superior. It's more sturdy and has more space than the Orzly case. I dropped my Orzly case once, and the Switch was fine, but I'm much more comfortable with the idea of accidentally dropping this case, it's hard shell is definitely a big plus. Other cases I've seen my friends with are much softer and not as durable. Also, the storage space in this case is better than my Orzly case. I can't fit the AC adapter into my Orzly case, which isn't a huge deal as I don't usually need it, but there have been a handful of times on longer trips where I've wanted to take it and had to pack it separately. I'm glad this case has enough room for it. Also, the Orzly case has a gaming logo (a video game controller I think) on it, which honestly I'm glad this one doesn't. It's not advertising what's in the case, and is nicer/classier looking. Lastly, I don't think the Orzly case had bad zippers, but these zippers seem to be a better quality.
Negative comparisons to the Orzly case include pricing (although knowing about the extra features, I think it's worth it). I think I bought the Orzly case for around $10 online. That might have been a sale price, and they may have redesigned their case since I got it (in December 2017). Now again, I think the Rayvol is superior (sturdier and roomier) but that's not always easy to tell online. Also, this is a very minor quibble, but the game slots on the Orzly case all face the same way and I think that's better. When I have this case open, 1/3rd of the game slots are facing the opposite direction. However, I don't ever really plan to travel with more than a handful of games, so it doesn't really bother or affect me.
I could see some people not liking the color of the case, and preferring black and/or more bright colors but I like the grey. It is a little unusual in terms of the style of the grey fabric, but again, I really like it.
At this point, I would recommend this over any other case I've seen. I haven't seen tons, but most of my friends seem too soft and/or small, and this one seems the best of any I've used/seen.
