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 Carrying Case

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 no crazy bells and whistles are 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.

PowerA Everywhere Messenger Bag

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.

Pick your protection

Possibly the greatest thing about the Switch is just how portable it is. It's made for travel. 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.
