A Zelda-Themed Nintendo Switch Case To Rule Them All

If a modified Pelican case was the mother of Switch protectors, then this ornate, leather bag is the mother of all Zelda-inspired Nintendo Switch cases.

Created by Etsy user Ian Finch-Field for his SkinzNhydez storefront, the made to order carrying case is large enough to fit a Switch with both Joy-Con still attached and comes with a compartment on the back to fit the charger and a small game collection. It’s a combination of tanned leather and brass rivets antiqued with dyes and finishers that leaves it looking equal parts well-worn traveling companion and 21st century kitsch.

There’s even suede and sheep’s wool on the inside to keep your device snug and unscathed. And of course there are plenty of insignia etched into the leather, because no Zelda-themed carrying case would complete without strange hieroglyphics that will leave strangers on the subway scratching their heads (the little ocarina in the bottom left corner on the front is a nice little touch).

As far as video game accessories go, it’s pretty snazzy and even gives the more modern Waterfield cases a run for their money in terms of high-quality look and feel. Of course, those materials and rustic aesthetic don’t come cheap, with the case currently being sold for just over $200.

I cannot stress this enough. Buy Tempered Glass for your Switch. You will save yourself trouble later on.

I am extremely careful with my electronics and even my Switch had some unfortunate pressure put on it during a road trip causing the screen to crack all the way down through the middle. Or at least it would have, had I not put Tempered Glass on it. Instead the cover took all of the damage. When I removed it, the screen was completely pristine and I bought a 2-pack for less than $10 so I had another ready to go.

I have seen my nephew’s tablet get run by a mini van causing the Tempered Glass to shatter. The actual screen? No damage at all. It won’t save it every time, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Applying them is nothing like the hell that those Invisible Shields were in the past and they don’t cost as much either. Obviously a case is also a plus, but it doesn’t hurt to have both.
