Oculus Touch controllers come equipped with wrist straps to keep them in place, but you still have to keep an uncomfortably tight grip while playing. Using hand or knuckle straps will help keep your controllers secure in your hands, even when you completely loosen your grip. We've researched the best Oculus Quest 2 hand straps — plus a few straps for the original Quest model's differently-shaped Touch controllers — to make longer periods in VR easier on your hands and wrists.
These are some of the most comfortable Quest 2 hand straps out there

These hand straps are designed with the third-generation Oculus Touch controllers that ship with the Oculus Quest 2 in mind. If you're still rocking the original Quest, we've got you covered in the second section towards the bottom of the article!
Best for comfort
I've been using KIWI Design's controller grips with extended handles for years now and stand by them as the absolute most comfortable hand straps you can get for your Quest 2. Supple padding and a generous handle make them ultra comfortable, and the battery compartment is just so darn convenient.
Easy battery swapping
If you're hands are a little smaller, KIWI Design has a style that reduces the handle length but still offers the positive points of our favorite solution. 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.
CNBEYOUNG's controller grip does the job well. Like many others on this list, it'll help keep the Quest 2's Touch Controllers comfortably in your hand. Its additional amenities and low price set it apart from the rest, though, his controller grip ships with protection for your Quest 2's lenses and still retails for less than others on this list.
Change it up
NexiGo uses hard TPU grips similar to VR Cover's grips, but the difference is mostly in the strap's size; 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.
For a long time, Insignia's been a trusted hardware peripheral and accessory manufacturer in the gaming space. Years ago, it was my go-to manufacturer for Wii U and 3DS accessories because of its soft, comfortable materials and consistent quality. The same goes for its smooth Quest 2 accessories.
This deal will have you seeing red, black, and blue
If you're looking for an option with a bit more color, YRXVW makes a soft answer that also protects those halo rings on each controller. These cushy silicone grips significantly enhance comfort thanks to their soft finish. But the color and protection for your Touch Controllers aren't the only plus side to this Silicone Cover Set; this set ships with accessories to help protect every part of your Quest from wear and tear for a lower price than some individual hand straps on this list.
Compatible with the original Oculus Quest
Meta halted production on the Oculus Quest over a year ago at this point, so accessories for the original headset can be hard to come by. Thankfully, we've found some really solid options for anyone still using original Quest hardware that's looking to improve their play experience.
Extra straps and accessories
This AMVR bundle gives you two sets of adjustable, elastic grip bands configurable to your hand size and fixed with velcro, so they won't budge during even the most intense. Those straps are attached to TPU plastic grips, which easily slip on and off when you need to swap out the controller battery.
Just the straps
If you love the feel of the Oculus Quest controllers and just want a pair of wrist straps (without the extra controller grips), KIWI Design sells straps that fit around the controller and don't add any extra bulk. These are the same adjustable velcro straps found in the newer version. Since they don't have the extra grip piece, they're also relatively cheap.
Choose your grip wisely
We scoured the internet for the best Oculus Quest 2 and original Oculus Quest hand straps and grips to ensure we picked only the best. If you're unsure where to start, VR Cover's accessories are always reliably high quality, but its Quest 2 controller grips are a standout product, even among an offering of other stellar accessories. We've tested these straps thoroughly and found them both safe and comfortable. We also recommend investing in a halo controller protector if you're concerned about smacking or dropping your controllers.
Once you've chosen the best Quest 2 hand straps for you, you'll be able to get more immersed in Quest 2's library of games and experiences! Try looking into the best Quest 2 face covers, which will help keep your headset clean and more comfortable, and then try looking into some of our picks for the best Oculus Quest 2 games for exercise to put those new accessories to the test.
