PDP was kind enough to send a Pull-N-Go Case review sample. Let’s check it out.
PDP Gaming has taken an interesting approach to Nintendo Switch storage with their new Pull-N-Go Case. I’ve never seen anything like it.
How does it work?
At first glance, the Pull-N-Go Case resembles a soft-sided lunchbox. It’s not very big, but is the perfect size to snugly pack all of your Switch stuff. According to the packaging, the Pull-N-Go can accommodate
- Switch console with Joy-Cons attached
- HDMI and power cables
- Power bank
- 6 game cards
- 1 pro controller
Everything you need to pack your Switch for a weekend at the in-laws for the holidays. There’s even room left in there for your anxiety meds.
The Pull-N-Go’s modular design is what really sets it apart from other cases. The case is really two cases, fastened together with hook-and-loop fastener. (Yes, I mean Velcro, but Velcro is actually a brand name so…)
The lower, bigger case section is where your big-screen accessories go: the dock, pro controller and cables. The upper module is a typical portable Switch case where the console is secured along with your Switch game cards and ear buds. The only difference between the top piece of the Pull-N-Go and a regular Switch case is that the entire back of it is covered with the soft side of hook-and-loop fastener.
In my opinion, that makes for a less-attractive appearance than PDP’s other cases, but the novelty of having it stick right on the top of the case contraption might make up for it. It also means that the top of the bigger section of the case is covered with the rough side of the fastener. When the two pieces are pulled apart, the noise is incredibly loud. RRRRRIIIIP!
So that’s the gimmick. It’s not perfect, but it’s probably the smartest case on the market today. The convenience of carrying all of my Switch stuff to my hotel, or to my parents house, then ripping off the top of the case to carry elsewhere, is certainly nice.
The inside of the lower case is completely modular. PDP packed in some soft partitions that hook-and-loop themselves to the inside of the case in any arrangement you desire. Higher-end camera cases work the same way, if you’re familiar with those. This allows you to rearrange your compartments to store different items you bring along. Including those meds we talked about.
How does it look?
The Pull-N-Go Switch Case is part of PDP’s Elite line. If you saw my Switch backpack review a while ago, you’ll notice the style is the same. By the way, I’ve been carrying that backpack to work every day for over three months now and it’s holding up brilliantly. I love it.
Anyway, the Pull-N-Go has a tough fabric shell. Like a tight-knitted canvas, in a grown-up gray color with black faux-leather accents. The stiching around the zippers, along with the zipper tabs and rubber carrying handle, are a deep reddish-orange. It looks very good!
Is it sturdy?
Yes! I don’t advocate for PDP just ‘cause they send me review samples, you know. They make great products, and the Pull-N-Go Case is no exception.
The fabric is tough with quality stitching all around. Where handles are attached, PDP chose to use black metal (instead of plastic) fasteners to hold everything together. I mentioned I have the backpack from PDP, which is made of the same material and I absolutely abuse that thing. Despite that, I have seen absolutely no fraying in the stitching, no tearing or wearing of the fabric. The materials are high quality and built to last.
Pull-N-Go Switch Case – the verdict
Overall, the Pull-N-Go Switch Case is a great solution if you like to take your Switch on the go. Particularly if you plan to bring it to a hotel or to a friend or relative’s house where you’ll want to ditch the dock and carry the console elsewhere.
Once the top case is rrrripped from the bottom case, the Velcro side of the case looks a bit strange and fuzzy. But the novelty is real. And it’s a quality case that will definitely get the job done.
