Best Nintendo Switch Case 2021: Protective Travel Cases For Switch And Switch Lite

A good Nintendo Switch case is key to protecting your Switch or Switch Lite from damage.


As a hybrid console and handheld device, the Nintendo Switch needs a bit more protection than other consoles that stay in one spot for years. Unless you leave the console in the dock forever and only play with a Switch controller, you're going to want a solid Nintendo Switch case. In fact, it's probably the first accessory you should buy alongside the console. Nintendo Switch carrying cases protect your console from damage--a simple screen protector won't help with every kind of accident. We've put together a list of the best Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite cases, and many of them are regularly discounted at Amazon.

Besides standard carrying cases, we've also included some of the best Switch grips for handheld mode. After picking out the best Nintendo Switch case for you, check out our guide to the best Nintendo Switch accessories to find more helpful products for your Switch.

With the Nintendo Switch OLED releasing this October, you may be wondering if the cases on this list will fit the new console. The answer to that question is a bit complicated. The Switch OLED is only slightly larger than the Nintendo Switch, so it should fit in plenty of the cases shown below. However, form-fitting cases and grips will likely have compatibility issues. At this time, there is only one confirmed Nintendo Switch OLED case--an official case from Nintendo that costs $20. We will update this list with more Switch OLED cases as they release.
