      Good, but not perfect

      -Screen protector fits perfectly, unlike reviews I've seen for PDP's standalone screen protector. Keep this in mind while lining up all sides. The plastic included to smooth out any air bubbles is a worthlessly hard, thin piece of plastic. It will likely cut through the top layer of application-film and damage the screen protector. I would recommend using a credit card, or a rubber one if you happen to have one from ArmorSuit lying around. I've also seen reviews indicating this bundle, and the standalone screen protector, including a cleaning cloth that deposits more dust than it leaves. I can attest to this. I used canned air to clean out the cloth, and applied the protector while in a very humid room (like a bathroom after taking a shower - keeps the dust and dander down). All in, not as good as a wet-application screen protector, but a darn fine static cling. -The thumbcaps are hard plastic. Different kind of traction than the normal rubber ones. I'll be holding onto them, but not likely to use them. -The joy-con 'grips' are a hard the same plastic as the thumbcaps. While that works fine for the grips, the detail indicated on the packaging is non-existent. This detail has been pressed by a mold into the plastic, and is not dual-toned. Additionally, they're the same thickness as the depth for the R and L buttons, meaning you will be more than likely to hit the plastic bumper than the buttons, until you're used to it. -The case is sturdy, not hard, but not padded. It will be sufficient for storing everything in, but not for drops. If you're gravity-prone, this is not the best case for you. Otherwise, looks nice, the design is raised rubber on one side, painted on the other. Worried it may tear away with excessive use, but not mad at it, for now. there's a divider that protects the front of the Switch while in transit, with games storage on its opposite side, and a storage pouch that's more than adequate for a spare Motorola USB-C charger. -Headphones are cheap, dollar-store type, and tinny as heck. Come on, PDP: it's 2017. You can pack in affordable headphones, already. All in all, this is something that I wouldn't balk at $20, but at $30, it's only a value due to its availability. If you can, spring for the special edition of zelda and a standalone screen protector. If you can't, this isn't a terrible backup plan. EDIT: Used a bit of silver Rub-N-Buff along with some 99% rubbing alcohol, and a lot of patience to fix what PDP couldn't be bothered with on the Joy-Con Grips. Some matte sealer, and they actually feel a bit better than they did originally. Also, without the controller protectors on there, there's about a half inch in any direction for the system to jiggle about inside the case. 3/5 star review stands as I already addressed this isn't *THE* case for everyone, but it's a bit disappointing all the same.

      Not a bad product but not great

      I got this mainly for the purpose of the screen protector and the case for the tablet/slate. Overall I like the case. Holds 12 Switch games total, the tablet with joycons and has a small pocket to hold small accessories or AC adaptor. The screen protector is just that and serves its purpose. The included headphone may look nice with the Sheikah accents but the quality of them is not impressive in the slightest. Very tinny sounding and weak with little bass. The thumb grip caps are visibly nice but offer little grip. They are plastic and honestly I will not be using them. The armor guards for the joycons are sadly a let down. They are hard plastic and despite the way the packaging shows them, the accents are barely visible outside of a very well lit area. The packaging shows the accents to almost be colored in dark. This is shown in the pictures. Another issue is if you plan to use the comfort grip that comes default with the Switch or the charging joycon grip, the joycons with the armor guard cannot be on and slide into either grip and must be taken off. This not an issue however for using it in portable mode. The extra plastic does slightly interfere with the kickstand however and it sits a different way as with without. As I previously stated, I bought this for the case and I do very much enjoy it. I cannot recommend this at the current price point however. If it drops below $20 it is a good case and the screen protector is always nice to have.

      I was very happy with my purchase of this case. Not only does it support one of my favorite games and series of all time, but it is actually quite well made. It may not be the most rugged case that you could buy, but its sturdy enough to the point where it would be difficult to damage the console by dropping it on accident. It looks really cool and is a convenient size and shape. My only problem with it would be that it is white and can get dirty very easily, but I knew that I was committing to that by buying, so its my problem. As for the different parts that came with the case, I was quite happy with them as well. The screen protector certainly isn't as good as a tempered glass screen protector, but since I was getting this mainly for the case, it was nice to have one included that I could use first before I buy some better ones. The cleaning cloth was pretty nice as well. The JoyCon plastic protectors were pretty cool as well. I wish that the designs on them were etched in a little deeper, because you have to look pretty closely to make out the patterns. Of course, they are plastic as well, so they will help protect against accidental damage, but they aren't going to provide THAT much protection. Regardless, for being included with the case, they were a nice bonus. They look really cool and give my gray Switch a little more color. The thing I love most about the controller protectors, though, is that they make the controller a little bulkier and give them a bit more weight. The controllers are pretty small to begin with, but with the protectors on they feel a lot more comfortable to use. The control stick covers were also a nice bonus. Again, they are plastic, so if you like having the friction of the rubber control sticks, I wouldn't use them. For me, they were a nice addition to the style of my Switch, and I like the way they feel. Overall, a great product! Definitely worth the price.

      A bit disappointing for $30

      Doughnut already did a great review of this product. But, I wanted to make extra sure that buyers know what they're getting. I pre-ordered this product with my switch as there were not many other alternatives at the time. First, the case: The description states that the case is "molded plastic." Unfortunately, this is NOT a hard plastic case. On the plus side, the inside of the case has plenty of room for extra games and a small pouch for extras (like ear buds). Next , the controller protector grips (armor guards): As others have stated, the detailing of the designs on the controller grips is not accented in any way like it shows on the product pictures... The grips are just a solid blue color. You can't use the these controller grips and the joy con grip at the same time. This might seem obvious now. But as a pre-order, this didn't cross my mind. I don't see myself using these grips at home. But, I might take them with me on-the-go to make the joy cons just a tad bigger. The thumb pad cover caps, The covers/caps for the directional pads are made of plastic and have even less grip than controller itself. The caps look pretty cool. But, I won't be using these. My thumbs need the extra grip from the rubber... The screen protector: It's an okay dry screen protector. We messed up the application and ended up buying a wet application screen protector. The earbuds: I haven't used these yet. So, I can't really comment. Final thoughts: This product would be worth $30 if the company would make some changes (convert to a hard case, color in the outlines on the grips, put rubber on the thumb caps, and throw in a slightly better screen protector). As it stands right now, I can't recommend this product at the $30 price point.

      Gets the job done

      I found myself on a month long trip away from home. During this time I had my Nintendo Switch which I had yet to buy a case for. Thats the reason behind this purchase. It was well worth it. I have to admit this was the ONLY case I could find at the best buy near my location. The case is pretty durable, a nice think rubber material with the fun zelda design on it(However I must admit if given the chance Id rather have a non flashy/standard design case) with a soft inside with a few slots for games(which I dont have any at the moment besides digital and zelda) I was able to fit the switch in with joycons attached easily. As well as slip the wrist straps in, and headphones. The case comes with matching headphones, they get the job done but nothing fancy, would be great for kids tho. I never used the screen protector or the rubber grip deals. Overall this case/set gets the job done but doesnt fit what I really wanted, however it comes with a few extra things as well.

      Awesome Switch Starter Kit for Zelda/Link Fans

      This kit was definitely a great buy when I first got my switch. It comes with a screen protector which is awesome since most cases don't. The interior is nice and soft with an easy way to organize your games (a lot of game/memory card storage) and a nice netted pocket to hold the included earbuds and cleaning cloth. The switch itself fits in nicely and has a nice Velcro stretchy band that holds it in place. The Joy-Con guards and the thumb caps are easy to put on - and take off when I need to put the Joy-Cons in my steering wheel controllers. The case itself is pretty sturdy and the price is awesome! The only downside I would say is that the charger doesn't fit in with it, but that's because the charger is big and clunky....

      Sturdy Case, Cool Design

      Missed out on the Zelda Special edition and the Shiekah case, so this was the next best thing. I like the design on it along with the attachments for the joy cons. They really add a more comfortable grip than you would get using the bare joy con. The head phones that come with it are pretty poor sound quality, but they get the job done, and the screen protector is one of the normal flimsy plastic sheets that takes a wizard to put it on without air bubbles, so I ditched those in favor of better quality items. I'm mainly interested in the case witch is very nicely made, but I feel could be just a bit more space on the inside to comfortable hold a portable battery and this case would than be perfect. If you just need a case that will hold your games and switch securely, than this is definitely a great buy.

      This kit comes with most of what you need, but everything is a little bland. The case is nice, but the white seems like it will get dirty quick. The screen protector is plastic, which is okay but not as good as tempered glass. The headphones are meh, but they look nice. The joy con grips feel great and make the joy cons feel wonderful in the hand but do not have the detailing that is pictured on the box. The analog stick nubs do help you keep grip on the analog sticks but the design on them makes them feel odd compared to other nubs... Overall the package is worth the money and I'm glad I bought it, but literally everything could be better. It's a good value though for what you get because everything is useful and it's a handy little package to have along with your brand new switch.
