Oculus Quest 2 cases
The Oculus Quest 2 may be a mobile headset, but it’s actually dangerous to take it on the go without protection. Carry it in a backpack, and stray junk like a pencil could scratch the unprotected lenses and ruin them. Even if you only keep it at home, sunlight permanently damages the lenses, so you’ll need to keep it enclosed when not in use. Oculus sells a Carrying Case with plenty of capacity for your Elite Strap and accessories; or, if you want something more travel-sized or hard-shelled, we’ve chosen the other best Oculus Quest 2 cases to consider.
Best overall: Oculus Quest 2 Carrying Case

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.
- Fits everything
- Made specifically for the Quest 2
- Pricier than most alternatives
- Not built for rugged travel
Best budget option: JSVER Hard Carrying Case for Oculus Quest 2
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.
- Doesn’t work with the Elite Strap
- No lens protector
Best on-the-go case: Typecase Oculus Quest 2 Case for Quest 2
The Typecase model 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 lined with microfiber and could easily accommodate any extra accessories 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.
- Shoulder strap
- Extra room for things to get jostled around
- A bit expensive
Most compact case: Fashion Travel Protective Case for Oculus Quest 2
While it might not have a lot of space to put other accessories or cables, the tight space will keep your Quest 2, 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.
- Comes with a stand for your headset and controllers
- Cheaper than other heavy-duty cases
- No extra room
Best protection: CASEMATIX Hard Case Compatible with Oculus Quest 2
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.
- The best protection
- Great for travel
- Can customize it to fit your accessories
- Owners are required to cut their own foam
- Not very portable
Best all-in-one case: SARLAR Hard Chest Shoulder Backpack
To sweeten the deal, the SARLAR case also ships with some cheap Quest 2 earbuds, controller grips, and a lens cleaning cloth. It also has a charging attachment, but with the wrong cable types, proving this wasn’t originally designed for the Quest 2. You’ll have to use your own power bank and Quest 2 charging cable or an adapter to make it work properly.
If you want the look of a bag, protection of a case, and a ton of extras, including a USB Charging system, this SARLAR model might be worth the extra cash.
- The strap makes for easy portability
- Free earbuds and controller grips
- Built-in power bank
- Minimal space
- Power bank doesn’t work easily with Quest 2
Which one is right for you?
A carrying case is one of many necessary accessories for any Quest owner. It’ll protect your console, while also keeping room for accessories like Quest 2 Link cables or Quest 2 battery packs when taking it on the go.
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.
