So, you have all of the virtual reality (VR) gear that you want, but you do not know how to transport it from one place to another. I mean you can’t walk around with a pile of gear in your hands, threatening to drop your items in the next step, can you?
That is why you need a case to carry your precious VR equipment and gear.
Oh, you could use a backpack or a suitcase, but will that work? Sure, it will work if you know what you are doing and properly pack your VR gear and any padding material you need to ensure that the gear does not bang into each other. After all, you don’t want anything to break or get scratched (especially those VR glasses).
This is where the specialized VR carrying cases come in handy.
Think about itâ€¦ maybe you are lucky enough to have a couple of systems and you are going to visit Aunt Ellie over in Hawaii (long trip) and need something to do. Then, again, there is a lot to do in Hawaii and you may not have time. But, you are prepared.
So, let’s start with the first system. Let’s say it is a PlayStation. An example of a case that is built for a PlayStation VR system is the deluxe one built by EUDEMON (affiliate). It is only $44.95 at the time of this writing, but it has several desirable features. It is waterproof of nylon material. This protects your PVSR from the detrimental possibilities. As far as protecting your gear, it has two separate sections, as if a two-story house, with the VR headset on one “floor and all of the gear safely strapped into their spots on the other floor. None of the gear bangs into each other when you experience the bumps along the road (or airplane).
Another similar bag is the Hermittshell (affiliate) EVA Hard Travel Case for that ever-popular Sony PlayStation VR Launch Bundle and PS4 Slim Console. It is a little more expensive than the EUDEMON version, at $54.99 (at the time of this writing). That said, it is another case that seems to take care of all of your needs. The hard travel case should be able to handle those outback adventure tracks in Australia, as well as the airfare to get there. It has six pockets, to keep gear separate from each other, again avoiding those bumps that cause scratches. It also comes with the straps to keep everything in place.
Well, there you have it, some examples of a case for traveling, but more importantly, some things to look for in buying a case. Let’s go over those again:
Ensure that the case is made for your particular equipment and possibly additional equipment if that is what you need.
Make sure that the case allows for the separation of gear so there is no bumping into each other.
Ensure that the case has straps to strap in the smaller gear and protect them from the inevitable bumps.
The case needs to be durable material. Think of the airplane luggage handling to guide that decision. Then use your bag as a carry-on to protect it even more.
If you use a checklist like the one above, you should be able to find the case that is just right for you.
