The backpack has become more than just an empty space for carrying books and other items, many are now designed with compartments inside that provide the best possible environment for transporting a wide range of goods, including VR headsets.
In fact, the Navitech backpack is designed to carry any VR device, but it’s potentially the best choice for your Oculus Quest.

The inside compartment has heavy-duty padding and a strap to hold items in place.

The Oculus Quest Travel Case
Unsurprisingly Oculus has created their own travel case for the headset, and it’s actually pretty good! Although it can beat the Navitech for price, this is a stylish looking case that does exactly what it’s designed to do, protect your Quest in transit.
This case is designed as a shell, it has a soft outer finish and is a semi-rigid design, that means the structure is made of a stiff card. The outer material is tough, it’s resistant to scratches, won’t fade in the sun, and won’t let the water through. However, it’s worth noting that the case is weather-resistant, not weatherproof; if you take it out in heavy rain it may let the water through.
The inside of the case has a soft lining and it’s split into two sections. The middle section can be moved, allowing you to create a section for the Quest and use the strap in the lower half to secure all the accessories in position.
A simple looped handle on the top of the bag makes it easy to carry with you wherever you go.
Navitech Rugged Hard Case
The case is slim thanks to a unique poly-fiber design. It has a mesh pocket inside to keep all your smaller items safe, and the large space has interchangeable foam pieces. This allows you to decide where you’re putting each part of your Quest and make sure there is adequate packing around it.
The small carry handle can be used when needed, or you may prefer to sling the bag over your shoulder, allowing you to rest your hand on the bag and know that your Quest is safe. The shoulder strap is comfortable although the bag does look a little like a laptop case.
The bag is 12 x 9.5 x 5 inches and weighs just 2.5 pounds, you won’t have any problem carrying your Quest with you and enjoying a touch of VR somewhere different.
Overall, this is a good looking option ad one that’s well worth considering.
Asafez Hard Travel Case
This Asafez travel case was originally designed to be a suitcase but it’s the perfect size for your Oculus headset and controllers, the case was quickly redesigned and presented as a dedicated solution for your Quest.
The outside of the case is made from EVA which is tough and durable. The bag is effectively scratchproof, shockproof, and even dustproof. However, it is only water-resistant, your Quest may get wet if it really starts to rain.
The bag measures 10.5 x 8.2 x 5 inches and has a simple carry handle on the side, allowing you to take it with you effortlessly. Inside is a mesh pocket that can be used to store cables and other essential accessories. The main pocket has the traditional cardboard covered lining which does a good job of keeping your Quest safe.
The cardboard lining can be moved according to your needs, creating pocket areas for the headset and the controllers. There’s also a built-in strap to ensure the items don’t move in transit.
Casematix XL VR Headset Case
Casematix is the ultimate case for anyone who travels a lot. It costs a little more but if you want style and safety in all the weathers this is the one for you.
The first thing to note is that this case is listed for the Oculus Go headset. However, thanks to the foam support being customizable, you can remove, cut, and rearrange to your heart’s content, until you find the perfect solution for your needs. The initial layout has a space for the Go headset and two customizable sections measuring 8 x 7.5 x 3.5 inches, and 7.5 x 2 x 3.5 inches. In short, it’s incredibly flexible inside.
The case itself is black and perhaps not the most stylish option. You’ll look like you’re carrying a tool kit with you, but, that’s a good way to disguise what you really have.
The exterior of this case is made from composite injection plastic and the internal foam is actually tri-layered. This means the case is shockproof, completely waterproof, and almost indestructible. Your Quest will be in safe hands.
An extra feature worth noting is the built-in carry handle and the padlock holes pre-drilled into the plastic casing, allowing you to lock the contents safely away.
It weighs a surprisingly light 2.5 pounds, giving you everything you need in a neat package.
If you’re not sure about adapting the Casematix then you may want to consider the Apache hard case. This case is designed to take any specialist equipment you have, whether it’s the Quest or a new high-spec digital camera.
The Apache is also made from composite injection plastic, making it waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, and almost unbreakable. But, the difference with this case is the inside. There is one large foam area which fills the inside of the case, it measures 12 x 9.2 x 4 inches and can be customized to whatever size and shape you wish. This doesn’t just mean you can create a space for your Quest, you can also create cushioned slots for all the accessories you want to carry with you.
The case weighs 3.9 pounds, a testimony to its strength but, you should consider this if you’re planning to carry the case around a lot. You may also like to know that the foam inserts can be bought separately, allowing you to format the case differently for when you want to carry something other than the Quest.
