The Oculus Rift S is an incredible VR headset that brings improved lenses, a display with a higher pixel count than the original, and a redesigned head strap and tracking system. It's the Oculus headset that will deliver the highest quality VR experience. Keeping your Rift S safe from damage when in storage or traveling should be a priority. The Vanerdun Case (opens in new tab) meets both of those needs perfectly. Of course, there are plenty of ways to store your Rift S when not in use, and we have your best choices right here.

What I love about the Vanderdun case is how your headset, controllers, and your cables all have their own compartment that are specially molded for each component. A fastening buckle built into the inner part of the case ensures that your Rift S don't move around when traveling. There's also a mesh pocket built into the interior that you can use to throw in extras like lens cleaners and spare batteries.

The case is very lightweight, shockproof, dustproof, and made out of water resistant materials so you can rest easy when you're not using your headset. It also comes with a super handy strap so you can throw your Rift S over your shoulder for easy transporting.

The big comfy handle and dual zipper makes getting to your headset really easy when you want to hang out with your friends in AltspaceVR, or maybe you're looking to do a solo Beat Saber session.
