Although the key, incredible feature of the Nintendo Switch is that it can be used as both home console and handheld gaming device, many people are going to naturally lean in one direction or the other. For me, the Switch is primarily a very versatile and powerful portable game machine, the next step in Nintendo’s illustrious handheld legacy, the PlayStation Vita but good.If you’re like me and mostly use your Switch on the go, then you realize that a good case is crucial. The Switch is more fragile than typical Nintendo hardware, so you don’t want it to get damaged. You could lose hundreds of dollars (and game saves that can’t yet be backed up). Plus, a case just makes it easier to carry a Switch, and disguises it from potential thieves.We’ve got a whole feature showcasing the variety of great Nintendo Switch cases you can buy. But for my money the best Switch case you can get, the Switch case I personally use, is the SwitchPack by WaterField Designs.San Francisco company WaterField Designs is known for its premium cases for laptops, tablets, smartwatches, and other tech products. With that established expertise, WaterField quickly established itself as arguably the most impressive player in the Switch case market, provided you could swallow the price.I’ve tested and used pretty much every WaterField Switch case, sometimes for months at a time. So it means something when I say the SwitchPack is my favorite case from them by far. I believe them when they say it’s the result of listening to a year of customer feedback because this case fixes every issue I’ve had with previous WaterField cases. The CitySlicker case was sleek but could pretty much only hold the Switch itself. The Arcade Gaming Case fits in more accessories but not quite enough to be complete. The Multiplayer Pro Case could contain everything you want but it had to be bulky to do so.The SwitchPack case finally solves my Goldilocks dilemma. The case is very similar to the Arcade Gaming case. It’s like a little leather briefcase with a convenient handle, zipper and internal pouches, and front flap that closes with magnets. It’s just slightly bigger than the Arcade Gaming Case. But that changes everything.With the extra space here’s what I’m currently keeping in my SwitchPack case: Nintendo Switch with attached Joy-Con, Pro Controller, extra microSD card, HDMI cable, power cable, cartridge holder, SFANS portable dock, extra USB-C cable, Switch stand. I could probably even jam in an external battery.With all of those accessories not only can I take my Switch on the go for portable play, but if I wind up somewhere with a TV I also have everything necessary for console play. It’s true freedom. And if you’re a Nintendo Switch owner with $129 to spend, that freedom can be yours with the WaterField Designs SwitchPack case.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img
