These cases will help store or carry your original Oculus Quest


To properly protect your Oculus Quest when traveling or even at home, you’ll need one of the best Oculus Quest cases. The Quest lenses must be shielded from sunlight at all times. Beyond that, something can easily fall into the headset and scratch the lens if you’re not careful — and the Quest has a lot of small accessories that are hard to keep track of unless stored in the same place. Whether you just want a compact travel case for your Quest and controllers, or a larger storage case with space for all your VR peripherals, one of these choices below should do the trick. Or, if you need the best Oculus Quest 2 cases, follow that link.

Perfect fit

Oculus Quest travel case

Staff Pick


This is the official travel case for the Oculus Quest. It’s a softshell case with enough room for your headset, Touch Controllers, charging cable, and adapter. The foam compartment of the case that holds the Touch Controllers keeps them separate from the headset, which helps protect the lenses.

All-around reliability

JSVER Carrying Case for Oculus Quest


For cheaper than the official case, the JSVER Carrying Case will snugly secure your Quest and protect against external damage thanks to its EVA shell.

A cheap, snug fit

Esimen Carrying Case for Oculus Quest


Although Esimen has renamed this to pitch it to Quest 2 owners, it was originally designed for the first headset and the dimensions haven’t changed. The controllers are secured to the top of the case, which is made of waterproof and shock-proof material. Travel-focused cases will handle hard falls better, but this more affordable case will easily handle most wear and tear.

Rugged and waterproof

AmazonBasics Medium Hard Camera Case

Take it with you

The Oculus Quest is extremely portable, but just stick it or your Touch controllers in a backpack or suitcase and you’re liable to have a scratched lens or broken component at some point. The best Oculus Quest cases keep all of the components secure on the go, and give you a single place to stick all of your favorite Oculus Quest accessories at home. Which you choose will depend on how much you want to spend, what you want to squeeze inside besides the headset and controllers, and how rough you plan on getting with this case.

For those primarily looking for home storage, we recommend the official Oculus Quest travel case. It fits the device perfectly, as you’d expect, and has an attractive design. It’s also small enough to fit into your backpack or other bags and can be easily carried with its looped handle.

If you need heavy-duty travel protection, you should look at the CASEMATIX Carry Case. It’s waterproof, dustproof, and impact resistant. The inside of the case has customizable foam that lets you fit the case to the device and accessories that you’d like to bring with you. It’s a heavy-duty case for people who need heavy-duty protection. It’s also relatively expensive, so anyone wanting protection at a better price should look into the Aenllosi Hard Case.
