The Best Nintendo Switch cases money can buy right now, according to Amazon shoppers

We all need a little protection from time to time, right?

The Nintendo Switch is a fantastic console, both when used docked to your TV and when in portable, handheld mode. I mean, who wouldn’t want to play the latest Mario games while sitting on the subway?

The thing is, the same portability also means more chances of accidental damage while out of the home. Since Nintendo doesn’t include a carrying case in the bundle (although it should), one of the first thing that Switch owners should purchase is a sturdy carrying case.

Here are the best Nintendo Switch carrying cases, according to Amazon

tomtoc Ultra Slim Carrying Case for Nintendo Switch

If you want a case to protect your Nintendo Switch that won’t take up much space inside your backpack, check out this $21 ultra slim model from tomtoc.

It’s only slightly thicker than the console itself but manages to find space for 10 game cartridges. It’s also passed the Mil-spec test for drop protection, so you can sling your bag around as normal.

Price: $20.99 | Amazon

IHK Carrying Case Compatible with Nintendo Switch

This carrying case from IHK might not have Mil-spec tests, but with 92-percent of its 107 reviews being five-star, it’s worth a look.

For under $9, it still sports an EVA outside for protection from bumps, scratches and other damage, and there’s space for 10 game cartridges and even some small accessories. No space for a charger though, so you’ll have to put that into another bag.

Price: $8.98 | Amazon
