Getting something to protect your console while out and about is essential thanks to its portability, so finding the best case for Nintendo Switch - one that won’t let you down if you drop the machine - is important. We’ve got some recommendations to help you out, and you’ll find these below.

Orzly Carry Case for Nintendo Switch is $13.99 on Amazon
With the capacity for the console, multiple Joy-Cons, games, and more, this is a great case.
Depending on who you ask, the best case for Nintendo Switch falls into one of two categories; the first is a type of hard outer shell for use while playing, and the other is a carry case for transport that also holds games, SD cards, accessories, and chargers. We’d suggest grabbing both if your Switch will still fit in the carry case with a shell on. Better safe than sorry, right?
This case is larger than the official Nintendo one, meaning you can also fit in extra cables or another pair of Joy-Cons for some four-player action out in the wilds. A neat internal flap covers the screen ensuring the case's other contents don't scratch the screen. We also like how it's big enough to put the Switch in with a cover like the Mumba armor mentioned earlier in this article. Available in multiple colours.
This is the official Nintendo Switch carry case kit. Sure, it costs a little more than some of the other options, but at least you know you're getting a quality-made product approved by Nintendo - it's arguably the best Nintendo Switch case out there. It comes with a screen protector and space to store the console, two Joy-Cons and five game cards. The black case is the standard version, but we've also spotted a red Super Mario Odyssey edition, although that one's a bit rare nowadays and increasingly expensive.
This tough protective case upgrades the armour rating of your Nintendo Switch in portable mode and has plenty of grip to ensure it doesn't slip out of your hands. If your Switch is played in handheld more often than on TV, this is a great option. It's worth noting though that you need to remove this case to put the console back in the dock for TV play and there's no screen protection if dropped face down beyond the protruding analogue sticks. We'd combine this with a zip up carry case (like the one below) to keep the screen free from accidental scratches. Available in multiple colours.
