Don’t let the controllers slip out of your hands. Use these great Oculus Quest hand straps.
Oculus Touch controllers have wrist loops that keep them from flying off, but you still need to keep a rigid claw grip on them at all times while playing. By installing a hand or knuckle strap, you can keep your controllers fully attached, even while letting go of them completely. We’ve collected the best Oculus Quest 2 hand straps — plus straps for the original Quest’s different-sized Touch controllers — to make long VR gaming sessions more bearable.
These are some of the most comfortable Quest 2 hand straps out there
These hand straps are designed specifically for the third-generation Oculus Touch controllers that ship with the Oculus Quest 2. If you’re looking for hand straps for the original Oculus Quest, check the section below this one.

Best for comfort
Designed specifically for the new Touch controllers, these VR Cover grips have felt fabric straps that wrap around the back of your hand or knuckles. Plus, they have a plastic non-slip grip that won’t bend in your fingers like a silicone grip. We tested and loved these grips, especially the strap that softly hugs your hands.View at AmazonView at Amazon
KIWI Design Grips with battery opening for Oculus Quest 2
Easy battery swapping
KIWI upgraded its original design with an ingenious battery compartment built into the grip. Changing the batteries is as simple as opening the door, replacing the battery, and closing it again. Everything else is the same as the original, including the sweat-resistant soft silicone grip and the more rigid faux leather straps.View at Amazon

Seeing red, black, and blue

NexiGo Controller Grips for Oculus Quest 2
Change it up
NexiGo uses hard TPU grips similar to VR Cover’s grips, but the difference is mostly in the strap itself. That strap is larger and wider than VR Cover’s and can be attached to the grips or the controller halo ring up top. That helps make these grips a better fit for a wider range of hand sizes.View at AmazonView at Amazon
Rebuff Reality Saber Themed Controller Grip Covers
Perfect for Beat Saber Fans
Rebuff Reality’s controller covers might be legally distinct enough from Beat Saber that they’ll avoid any lawsuits, but don’t get it twisted; they’re great for any avid Beat Saber fan. The included knuckle straps and grip-friendly texture make swinging your sabers to the beat all the more enjoyable.View at AmazonView at Amazon

KIWI Design controller straps
Just the straps
