Best Travel Cases for Nintendo Switch iMore 2020
The Nintendo Switch is the most portable console we've yet to see, so there will be quite a few people who'll take it with them on their travels and commutes. If you want to keep your Switch as safe as possible, you need to invest in a carrying case. Thankfully, there's no shortage of options. Here are the best travel cases for the Nintendo Switch.
- Switch kit: RDS Traveler Deluxe Case
- Pouch city: Mumba Carrying Case
- Plain cheap: AmazonBasics
- Travel light: TomToc Ultra Slim Case
- Smart design: PowerA Everywhere Messenger Bag
- Vault it up: AmazonBasics Vault Caseam
- Rock steady: Zadii Hard Carrying Case
- Fashionable: ProCase Carrying Pouch
It's neat and petite. This deluxe case can fit the Switch tablet, the Dock, the Joy-Con controllers, and the Grip, as well as the various cables, all in a nice compact form factor.
Mumba's carrying case for the Nintendo Switch is slick. It's wide enough to fit your Switch while the Joy-Cons are attached. A pouch sits in the upper compartment to hold extra cables, Joy-Cons, and other accessories. Plus, there's a whole little pouch dedicated to holding your Switch games.
AmazonBasics is all about delivering quality on the cheap. This usually means there are no crazy bells and whistles getting in the way, but that can add to the charm for some people. It doesn't hurt that this roomy case with room for all your Switch stuff is one of the cheapest you'll find in this form factor.
I like to pack light when I travel, and this case lets me bring my Switch and plenty of games along with me without adding a lot of bulk. It's quite protective while saving a lot of space and can hold up to ten games as well.
Some people like to tote things around their necks, and that's why this messenger bag exists. PowerA's internal design for this thing is really striking both aesthetically and functionally. Dock, Switch, cables, controllers, accessories, and games: you can fit it all. And it even comes with a bonus carrying pouch for the Switch when you want to carry it in-hand.
The Switch is already a ton of fun to game on, and you can keep the fun going with this travel case from Funlab (it's in the name!). The Mario theme will keep you in the right state of mind as you contemplate your next Mario Kart or Mario Odyssey victory. There's even Luigi too if you prefer.
This is another lunchbox design, but Zadii's has a foam insert that sections off all your accessories. This is great because it ensures your Switch stuff will stay in place even during the shakiest of times. It has a zipper compartment in the cover for extras, and a soft-backed flap to hold your Switch cartridges.
This is one for the fashionistas. This carrying case probably isn't the most protection you can get for your Switch, but it definitely is the most stylish. It may remind you of those hand purses women love to carry. It won't fit much more than your Switch and Joy-Cons + a few games, but it also doesn't look like you're about to go hitchhiking when you're carrying it.
Hard to go wrong
Possibly the greatest thing about the Switch is just how portable it is. It's literally made to travel and be carried around. Because we live in a world with Amazon, there are so many great ways to carry your Switch on all your adventures. One of our favorites is the RDS Traveler Deluxe Case because it's a great all-around case that lets you carry everything you need in one pouch.
Everyone travels differently, however, which is why there are so many options. If all you need to take is your Switch gear, then the PowerA Everywhere Messenger Bag is a great choice to keep your hands free. I personally usually have a lot of stuff with me, and the TomToc Ultra Slim Case fits great in my backpack without taking up a lot of space. Really anything you choose here will do well for you.
