The Switch OLED is now officially out and about in the wild (several members of Team NL have happily received theirs in the mail this morning), and as any new owners will have noticed, it's a lovely, premium-feeling little thing.
If you're in the market for a new protective carry case, WaterField is back with a new, fittingly premium option for you. The Special Edition CitySlicker Case has been designed with the new OLED in mind, being able to store any Switch console with its Joy-Con attached, five game cartridges, and other accessories, and even sporting the OLED's new white and black colour scheme.
Plenty of other colours are also available, such as Blue, Black, and 'Grizzly', which turns out to be a smart brown colour. You can also order an optional strap to carry the case when you're out and about, and prices start at $88 (we told you it was luxurious).
Have you treated yourself to a new Switch OLED? Let us know in our launch day poll.
Eighty-eight dollars? This monstrosity costs eighty-eight dollars?!
This is luxurious:
I got one of these for Christmas last year it was especially made for the Skull & Co. case. I thoroughly enjoy it. Though I’m not the one who paid $80 for it and maybe that colors my opinion.
@TheAwesomeBowser "You can also order an optional strap to carry the case when you're out and about"
AT $88, IT DOESN'T COME WITH A STRAP?!
PowerA makes a similar case which is waaaay cheaper, so I don't think this is worth it at that price.
@LeighDapa This is definitely not worth it now.
I already got once of those Inateck cases you guys promoted before and have been pretty pleased with it.
That's a stupid price for an ugly product. Pass!
I'm looking for a playing case, not a carrying case. Haven't had much luck yet.
Pricey, but it is leather... right?
I've paid a premium for leather items, so while I wouldn't do it for my Switch of all things, I do appreciate a nice leather bag.
When you lift up the flap, it looks like a tool belt for hipsters
I currently have the black City Slicker and it’s a little beat up. That white and black one is as good as bought. As far as I am concerned, it’s the best carrying case for the Switch. Sold… again.
I have the waterfield slip case and it’s quite lovely. They make quality product. I almost bought the first edition of the sling bag to carry the switch as well, but I went with the bellroy sling bag instead. I like how they updated this case with a sling option. Nice size. More compact than my bellroy sling.
That had better be suede or leather. They are nice.
I don’t like the idea of my Switch just dangling off me like that...
I have several things from Waterfield and they are all super quality including a cityslicker for my new 3DS. It's 6 or 7 years old now and still as solid as when I bought it and my 3DS is always in it. Will probably pick one of these up after I get a OLED model.
Looks sleek but to pricey, wouldn't pay more than 50€ for this, including the strap.
Waterfield stuff is utterly premium quality. Don't buy it if you don't like the prices..
I love their stuff!!!
The price has gone up I think. Regardless, I’ve been a customer of SFBags and Waterfield products for years and have bought them for the Vita, Switch and all my Macbooks/iPads; yes they are pricy, but they are very well made and are less geeky than other solutions.
@Tempestryke Yes real leather. Not the cheap stuff, either.
@Browny yes real leather
Well I’d need to find a Switch OLED first….
Wait is that a purse??
@RabidCanuck That explains it.
@Yorumi That's good to hear.
I have many waterfield cases and they are awesome and expensive but I'm 51 and I like a little better of a quality and "adult" look.
I ordered the white one..but now I'm not sure if I should exchange it for a waxed canvas one? I'm starting to think the white one is fugly.
I don't do animal skin so that's a hard pass for me.
These get that terrible mould on them if you leave it in a drawer or dark place. I have the original one from when I first got my switch and just threw it out. Like if you leave a leather jacket in cupboard- same effect.
Love Waterfield cases. Premium leather, not that cheap seatbelt feeling material your average Amazon case is made of.
This is for those who prefer to carry a bit more class, rather than walking into the office with a $20 case high school students carry around.
