Oculus Quest Travel Cases Tested

Published by Darron Toy on



welcome to the Oasis my name is Mike and today I'm gonna be testing out three travel cases for the oculus quest now as the oculus quest is a completely standalone VR headset it would make sense that you'd want to take this out and about to show friends and family just how awesome VR can be now you could just throw the headset into a backpack but there are some nice options out there for travel cases which I'll be covering in this video I'll be testing out three hardshell travel cases one from Lowepro one unbranded case and then the official case from oculus now I bought the first two cases myself and was provided the official oculus case for free along with the oculus quest headset from oculus themselves I'll put timestamps and links to all the products in this video in the description down below now these are my Amazon affiliate links so it just means that if you order a case or a headset through these links it doesn't cost you any more but just help support me and the channel and I'd really appreciate it so I hope you guys and girls enjoy this one and without further ado let's dive in okay so for my testing of each of these travel cases they have to fit the essential travel items of course the oculus quest headset itself the new oculus touch controllers the supplied 10-foot USB C to USB C charging cable the official power adapter and finally this compact battery pack from Ankur now this is the Power Core 10,000 PD and is available for forty five US dollars or thirty two British pounds I've been testing out this battery pack for a week now and it's a great little accessory so far in my testing it adds around four and a half additional hours of gaming on top of the quests own two to three hour battery life you can use it to play with and charge the headset at the same time keeping the quest topped up at 100% using the official oculus quest charging cable I've linked to it in the description down below but we'll be covering it more in detail in a future video once I've completed some more tests so in these travel cases I'm looking for durability protection style and fit and let's start with the cheapest first and work our way up set up first is the hard shell Eva travel case for oculus rift this case costs 20 399 in US dollars $23.99 in British pounds and both are available on Amazon first impressions are that it feels a bit cheap even though it does have a hard outer shell I do think this case looks kind of strange in its design with its molded hump in the middle originally this case was designed as a travel case for the oculus rift but as the rift and the quest are similar in size I thought it might be a good fit it's kind of got a stealth look to it without any branding so if you like that minimalistic look you might like this one it also has two zips and a rubberized handle at the top this is the only case out of the three that comes with a shoulder strap which attaches using metal loops on either side of the case the inside of the case is lined with material and I could get everything I needed inside the case the quest headset is kept in place with a flexible strap but all the other items were left loose even using a controller bag from Widmer VR I wouldn't be too happy with everything just potentially knocking around inside the case and potentially damaging the quest lenses maybe if you could protect the lenses with something it would be okay I know previously you could 3d print lens protectors for the oculus go so maybe when the community start releasing things like that for the quest in the future it might work but right now I wouldn't recommend this case due to the possibility of scratching the lenses on your headset next up is the Lowepro drone guard CS 200 now this case costs 2499 in u.s. dollars and an eye-watering 48 British pounds both are available on Amazon the price between buying it in the US and UK is huge if you're in the UK you're paying more than twice as much first impressions of this case are pretty good the case looks well made with a rugged look to it it has two zips and a material handle at the top this case was originally designed to carry small drones like the parrot bebop or the DJI Mavic but works pretty well as a quest carry case to the camo style design with the loops at the front give this case a military-style rugged look which might appeal to some inside is lined with soft foam and material over the top which is a really touch there's loads of room inside for the oculus quest headset and all the accessories and you can move these dividers around the main compartment to configure it the way you want as they use velcro to attach to the lining you have this cool flap above the main storage compartment which has room to store your phone or your wallet inside on the back of the flap you have a pocket and more loops which are nice to keep your power adapter cable and battery pack secured once everything is inside the case it's a bit of a tight fit but that's kind of good in a way as it keeps everything in place overall this is a solid case and works well with the quest and the essential accessories with this case costing just one more dollar in the US than the either case this one is definitely the better one out of the two cases so far and finally here we have the official quest case from oculus now this one is a bit more expensive than the other two at 39 88 US dollars on oculus or from Amazon and 40 British pounds through oculus as this isn't available on the UK Amazon store yet first impressions of this case are good it looks nice and has a premium feel to it due to the material used on the outside of the case and I really liked the discrete oculus logo at the front oculus designed a similar case for the oculus go when that launched and I've used that one previously too the oculus case has a nice soft material handle at the top and a single zip it's also noticeably smaller and more compact than the other two cases the inside of the oculus case is lined with material just like the Eva case although the lowepro case has soft foam underneath the material probably making it better absorbing impacts or drops in the center of the oculus case you have a compartment which is designed to house the USBC cable and official power adapter the indents on the top of this compartment are designed to securely hold your controllers by placing the tracking rings in the grooves once in the grooves they're held in place securely which is good as this would prevent the controllers from hitting the quest lenses once the controller's and headset are snugly inside the case there's just enough room at the back to put the battery pack in overall the official oculus quest case from oculus does a great job of keeping your quest secure and protected in a nice sleek compact case ok so there we have it guys and girls that's three oculus quest travel cases tested and reviewed now personally I really like the lowepro and the official oculus case as both for everything neatly and securely inside the only one I wouldn't recommend is the Eva case as everything was kind of floating around and I wouldn't want to damage the quest lenses now I think the official oculus quest has the slight edge for me as I think it looks really cool with the discreet oculus logo on the front and it's more compact than the Lowepro however if you're on a tight budget after ordering a question yourself maybe the lowepro offers similar protection at just under half the price if you live in the u.s. of course if you live in the UK it's way more expensive and then I'd go for the official oculus case but let me know which one you prefer in the comments down below or any others that you may have found while searching the internet I'd love to know I'll be testing more accessories for the quest in the future specifically battery packs headphones and VR covers so make sure you stay tuned for those in the future let me know if you found any other accessories you'd like me to check out on the channel maybe some magnetic MagSafe cables as I know a lot of you out there we're interested in those when I was checking them out on the oculus go so let me know in the comments down below leave a like if you liked this video make sure you're subscribed for all my future content and as always I'll see you on the next one Cheers [Applause]

Great reviews thanks. I’m wondering if there will be space for a Chromecast too as we are going to be needing one so friends can watch whilst others play. I do like the official one best too albeit a little pricey.

you know that VR Mask that can smell which type of setrting you're in or blow hot or cold air, called "Feel Real"? was wondering if you've seen it or heard of it and was wondering if it's worth getting it?

Google Glass · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

$25 = £19.38 what a rip-off

Joni99 · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Too expensive. I'm just gonna walk around in quest

Dennis Dejong · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

4real mate, why you only target US/English? Add euro's!

Calzvicsius · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Thanks for the guide. I'd found your channel after looking for details on the current state of VR after using the Gear VR for a good while, and it's been very informative, helping me come to the ultimate conclusion to pre order a Quest, and now I've gone for the official case for it as well as I just love the look and design. I'd love to get a Rift at some point as well as I do have a PC that is VR ready, but for me the social aspect and portability of the Quest wins over graphical fidelity, and the ability to cast to a TV adds to the group play experience in a way that was noticeably lacking from the Gear VR experiences. Thank you for these helpful videos. I look forward to more to guide me in my purchases of games and experiences in the future.

Greetings from Novosibirsk) Who can send oculus rift s in Novosibirsk?

Brian Villagomez · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Yeah I'm getting the oculus version.

Isaiah Busch-Hebert · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

At 5:19 Why does the pricing change on the quest. It goes from 39.98 then to 39.88

ReLapseJunkie · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Xbot4Life · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

I like the looks of that lowpro.. however I may still wait to see what 3rd party "unofficial" Quest cases may pop up after Quest is released. Don't forget some may need room for a chrome cast and some VR covers as well 🙂 Good video and review overall.

Aj Jones · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Love your accessory videos

Cor · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

All the cases, accept the Eva case, are good for going on quests with.

Balakae 88 · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Does the oculus case have enough space for it to be charging while it’s closed?

Athithan · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

5:25 It’s also $55.00 CA (Canadian Dollars)

Derpy Oshawott · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Do you think the quest is worth it? I want to buy it because I have a pretty shitty PC and the fact that you don't need one for the quest is nice but do you think the experience is good?

VR Edward · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

The price of the official case is a missed opportunity to compete with non official cases. Even $5 less would make it more appealing. They shouldn’t pretend it’s anything particularly fancy.

Travis Loker · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

I picked up the Navitech Rift case on eBay for $17. It looks better than these. It is also available on Amazon for more if you do not like eBay.

Ѧtlantis Studios · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

The Lowepro is no longer $25 dollars 🙁

Erik Loarca · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

The official one looks the best

The Great Gambino · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

I think I'm going to go with the official Oculus carry case. I like the idea of having a perfect fit. Thanks for the upload really great information.

SSK L · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Does anyone know if the Quest would be Airplane-travel friendly??

Not sure if the Oculus GO was plane-friendly, but if any of you say that it is, then the Quest must be okay to use on the plane, then. No…?

Rustley · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

4 dislikes are people that can't afford VR and are butthurt

PinkGirl2242 · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

What about the Navitech hard case for the oculus quest Mike? I've ordered that

Toaster Head · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Me want

Kenneth Honda · May 15, 2019 at 8:35 am

Thanks for reviewing more than just the official case so we had some options. I used your link to buy the Lowepro one. Much appreciated!

Thibault Khorkoff · May 15, 2019 at 8:36 am

Can you explain to me how the microphone function works and how i will could play with my friend 😛

James Lerch · May 15, 2019 at 8:36 am

Thanks! I preordered the official Oculus case and now feel justified in doing so.
