Keep your Oculus Quest 2 safe with these great storage and travel cases

Even among other tech and gaming equipment, the Oculus Quest 2 is very susceptible to damage. Whether you're protecting your headset from sunlight, scratches threatening your Quest's lenses, or just plain ol' gravity, a case is a necessity for any Oculus Quest 2 owner. Of course, Facebook and Oculus happen to have their own case, but several other manufacturers have also thrown their hats into the ring. Here are some of the best Oculus Quest 2 cases.

Best overall: Oculus Quest 2 Carrying Case

It's no coincidence that the official case leads the pack. While most cases are designed for the original Quest, this one was made with the slightly smaller Quest 2 in mind. Thanks to its compact, stylish design, the Official Quest 2 carrying case is ideal.

It'll easily keep all your accessories secure in most situations, and there's room for everything here. Tuck away your headset, controllers, charging cable, and power adapter for safekeeping. The custom inlay is designed to hold everything in place. Plus, there's even space for the Elite Strap, with or without the battery.

However, keep in mind that the Oculus 2 Carrying Case isn't hard-shelled or terribly well-padded, so taking it on the road might require some extra care. But it does have a soft, easy-carry handle; just take care when handling.

Pros:

  • Stylish
  • Fits everything
  • Made specifically for the Quest 2

Cons:

  • Pricier than most alternatives
  • Not built for rugged travel

Best overall

Oculus Quest 2 Carrying Case

A perfect fit

The Oculus Quest 2 Carrying Case stands on its own as a uniquely stylish and high-quality case made exclusively for the Quest 2.

Best protection: CASEMATIX Hard Case Compatible with Oculus Quest 2

The CASEMATIX Hard Case is built like a tank, unlike most other Quest 2 carrying cases. Lined with a thick protective foam layer, this carrying case is ideal for anyone who travels a lot. That said, this top-of-the-line protection comes at a cost; the CASEMATIX is ugly and clunky.

It does, however, provide a unique level of customization that, while incredibly useful, also requires a bit of DIY craftsmanship on the part of the owner. Instead of shipping with the foam padding cut out for the Quest 2 and its accessories, you need to cut out the shapes in the layer of foam yourself. The case exterior itself measures 16-by-by-6 inches, while the interior is 14-by-10.75-4 inches. So, if you want top-of-the-line protection and customizable interior, this is the pick for you.

Pros:

  • The best protection
  • Great for travel

Cons:

  • Owners are required to cut their own foam
  • Unattractive
  • Clunky

The CASEMATIX Hard Case is perfect for Quest 2 owners who bring their headsets on the road frequently.

Best budget option: JSVER Hard Carrying Case for Oculus Quest 2

Accessories for the Quest 2 aren't cheap, and if you're just getting one, the expenses are probably quickly piling up. That's where the JSVER Hard Carrying Case comes in. It offers a low-cost, no-frills alternative to some of the other Quest 2 carrying cases out there for less than half the price of some of the other offerings.

That said, it doesn't exactly check every box like the options above. Since it doesn't come with lens protectors, you'll have to shell out the cash separately for a pair of lens protectors. Unfortunately, it's also missing space for the Oculus Elite Strap, so you'll either have to jam it in tight or carry it separately. Still, it does have an inside pocket for your cords and an elastic strap to hold your headset into place. The case is made from shockproof and waterproof EVA, so you won't have to worry about any bumps, scratches, and splashes ruining it.

You can get the bare-bones case or opt to pay just a bit more for the whole kit and caboodle. Either way, you can protect your Quest 2 without breaking the bank.

Pros:

  • Cheap
  • Shockproof
  • Waterproof

Cons:

  • Doesn't work with the Elite Strap
  • No lens protector
  • Barebones

JSVER Hard Carrying Case for Oculus Quest 2

Protection for your wallet

The JSVER Hard Carrying Case is a solid budget option for anyone looking to save a little cash on a carrying case for their Quest.

Best all-in-one case: SARLAR Hard Chest Shoulder Backpack

What good is a carrying case if the case doesn't actually make it easier to transport your headset? The SARLAR Hard Chest Shoulder Backpack solves the portability issue in style. Its subtle, hard-shelled exterior is stylish and unassuming and includes a shoulder strap to allow owners to wear it like a backpack. Plus, the material is wear-resistant, waterproof, and easy to clean.

To sweeten the deal, the SARLAR case also ships with earbuds, controller grips, and a lens cleaning cloth and even has a power bank built-in to the bag itself. Naturally, all these amenities come at a relatively hefty price that sets it above even the most premium options. Still, if you want the look of a bag, protection of a case, and a ton of extras, including a USB Charging system, it might be worth the extra cash.

Pros:

  • The strap makes for easy portability
  • Free earbuds and controller grips
  • Stylish
  • Built-in power bank

Cons:

  • Expensive
  • Minimal space

Best all-in-one case

All for one, but not one for all

While it might not offer the protection as heavy-duty cases, the SARLAR's shoulder strap alone makes up for it.

Best on-the-go case: Typecase Oculus Quest 2 Case for Quest 2

If the SARLAR carrying case seemed like a bit much — or the price tag is too steep, the Typecase Oculus Quest 2 Case is a solid alternative for anyone looking for something a bit cheaper with fewer bells and whistles. It may not look as stylish, but thankfully, this case makes up for what it lacks in amenities. Plus, it is a decidedly more stylish option than most other carrying cases on this list.

This case has a hardshell case reinforced with military-grade ballistic nylon, and it has several zipper pockets to hold all your accessories. The exterior is made of water-repellent and scratch-proof material. The interior is mould lined with microfiber and could easily accommodate any extras you may have. It comes with specialized cable clips to hold charging cables, and the stretchy mesh pockets can easily hold batteries or other loose items. Plus, the Typecase comes with soft lens covers to keep your Oculus Quest scratch-free.

Thanks to its more subtle design and slightly larger size, this case could even double as a small backpack for carrying other items. That said, its space is a double-edged sword. Because it has more space, there's more room for accessories to move around and bump into one another if the bag is jostled or dropped.

Pros:

  • Stylish
  • Shoulder strap
  • Spacious

Cons:

  • Extra room for things to get jostled around
  • A bit expensive

Best on-the-go case

Easy, breezy, beautiful

The Typecase carrying case is ideal for anyone looking for a solid option to bring their Oculus Quest 2 on the go.

Most compact case: Fashion Travel Protective Case for Oculus Quest 2

While the actual look of the Fashion Travel Protective case might not live up to its name, its compact, hard-shelled design excuses its utilitarian look. This case barely has enough space to fit everything the Quest needs at a much lower price than other options on this list. And this option is light, as it's constructed of a feather-weight EVA material. Lightweight doesn't mean this case can't handle rough travel. It's shockproof and waterproof, so it's ready to go when you are.

While it might not have a lot of space to put other accessories or cables, the tight space will keep your Quest, controllers, and accessories from moving around too much in transit. That, combined with its hard shell and metal shoulders, makes it ideal for rough travel. Plus, it comes with a stand to display your Quest 2 and controllers in style.

Pros:

  • Sturdy
  • Tight
  • Comes with a stand for your headset and controllers
  • Cheaper than other heavy-duty cases

Cons:

  • No extra room
  • Unattractive

Most compact case

Fashion Travel Protective Case for Oculus Quest 2

Good in tight spaces

The Fashion Travel Case offers top-tier protection, provided you can fit all your accessories in it.

Which one is right for you?

A carrying case is one of many necessary accessories for any Quest owner, and it's a good idea to make sure that a carrying case has room for accessories like a head strap or a power bank. However, if you're looking for the best option out there, look no further than the official case.

Ultimately, the official Quest 2 Carrying Case is hard not to vouch for. It makes no concessions and features nearly everything a carrying case for the Quest would need, from the perfect fit inside to the extra space for all the accessories, including the Elite Strap. Its only real issues are its price and durability, but the use case for something more heavy-duty is so rare that it probably won't be a problem for most people.
