Butterfox Compact Carrying Case

Case in point

This is a great case for bringing on extended trips. It has a hard shell to protect from bumps, offers 19 slots for Switch cartridges, has a storage compartment that stays closed via zipper, and also has a handle for easy carrying. With all of these features, it still manages to be one of the least expensive carrying cases you can get. Plus, ButterFox has a few different colors to choose from.

What are you really carrying?

This stylish case looks more like a folio bag or small purse. It isn't as protective as some other cases, but it has a soft inner lining to protect the Switch Lite's screen from scratches. There are slots for five cartridges, but you won't find space for any accessories. You can easily slip it into a purse or bag and bring it with you on any trip.

For the serious traveler

If you're looking for a way to transport you Switch Lite and several accessories hands-free, then this is the case to consider. It comes with a detachable shoulder strap as well as a handle so you can carry it the way you'd prefer. It also has slots for five Switch cartridges and allows you to store cables or an extra set of Joy-Cons.

Carry on

When you go traveling, you want to make sure that you have everything you need for a convenient gaming experience. When choosing the right carrying case, you'll want something that can hold a decent number of cartridges. It should also offer protection against damage, not take up too much room, have plenty of storage for accessories, and be easy to transport. It helps if it doesn't cost too much, either.

The case we recommend most is the ButterFox Compact Carrying Case. It's incredibly well priced considering it can hold 19 games, has a zippered storage compartment, has a hard shell, and even features a handle. ButterFox offers a few different zipper colors so you can get a look you like best.

If you're looking to bring a Pro Controller or extra Joy-Cons with you, we suggest looking at the PDP Elite Commuter Case. It has a classy design and is the perfect option for bringing additional accessories. Prefer something small and compact? Then you'll want to look at the Hori Slim Tough Pouch. It's much slimmer than other options while still being able to hold 10 cartridges. You can choose between a blue or black design.
