My son has been getting sore hands using the Switch in portable mode, so I imported the two most recommended grip options - the Skull & Co Gripcase and the Satisfye SwitchGrip Pro. Given that people on average seemed to prefer the Skull & Co grip and its ability to stay on while docked, I also got the Skull & Co case and thumbgrips (dark-red variant).

 

However, of the two he has decided he marginally prefers the Satisfye (probably because it arrived a week earlier and he got used to it), which leaves me with one basically brand-new Skull and Co bundle - basically the GripCase for the Nintendo Switch with three different sized grip options, three pairs of different thumb grips and a large case to hold the switch with its new additions.

 

It cost me NZD$74 including shipping - I thought NZD$50+shipping or Wellington pickup sounded fair.

You mentioned this one is dock-compatible as in it can be docked while with the grip body attachment on?

That's what it said on the site, although I didn't try that aspect (it was pretty simple to take it out of the grip anyway).

Just been checking on the web - although the person who recommended it to me leaves the skin on while docked (as do many other people), it looks like it must be a fairly close fit as some people have Switch docks that are narrower at the top than at the bottom which don't fit the Switch+Case, so looks like it can't be guaranteed.
