The Nintendo Switch is an expensive and in-demand system, so you really don't want to seriously damage it when you're taking it on the go. Picking up one of the best heavy-duty Nintendo Switch cases will keep your device safe even if you drop it or spill something. Our top pick is the Deruitu Carrying Case because it's a compact way to safely carry your Switch along with some games, a charger, and extra Joy-Cons.

Beyond protection, these cases can also offer a great way to organize your games and accessories on the go. The Zadii Hard Carrying Case is the perfect pick if you're traveling with your dock, Pro Controller, and other key accessories. The RDS Industries Officially Licensed Switch Carrying Case is another strong choice since it's got room for game cartridges and microSD cards and also provides an adjustable stand to make playing more comfortable. Whichever case you pick, the purchase should give you more peace of mind when you take your Switch out of the house.
