This case is perfect, even for those who don't intend to travel with their headset. If you're anything like me, paranoia runs high when it comes to your electronics. This case keeps your headset safe from scratches and out of sunlight exposure, which I heard could be bad for the lenses (direct UV contact). I, personally, did not want one of the display stands, so with this I disconnect the headset, place it in the case, and store it safely in the tv-stand cabinet. It's definitely a must have, because leaving the VR headset out in the open is just asking for trouble.
Don't let the pictures fool you, the case is hard enough to keep your headset safe. Just remember to collapse the portion of the headset that fits around your eyes before placing into the case, for a perfect snug fit. There's even a perforated pocket attached to tuck the headset's cable into.
