The best travel cases for PS5
Why you can trust Android Central Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.
King of the hill
The Case Club PS5 Portable Gaming Station does it all when it comes to travel management. It can carry your console, hold remotes, store games, cables, and headsets, and even sports a full HD monitor for you to play the games on, should you choose to do so. Of course, this is a higher-end option and only reserved for those looking to play straight out of a case.
Handy and spacious
A more traditional case, USA Gear's travel case offers water and scratch resistance and a sturdy handle for you to take your console wherever you are. There're also plenty of compartments included, so you'll be able to take some extra items, including a controller, headset, or some games.
A hardshell case
Casematix aims to give players a much more sturdy option, as its travel case for the PS5 sports a hard shell and customized foam inserts for either the Standard or Digital Editions of the PS5. The case fits the console, sports a "crushproof" hard shell, and, thanks to its foam inserts, is shock absorbent as well. The downsides to this case are its price and lack of compartments for anything outside of the console, its stand, and two controllers, but it's hard to argue that this isn't the most protective case available.
Sleek and stylish
If you want a sleeker, more minimalist case to carry around your PS5, then Partage has the bag for you. With a simple white front sporting just the brand's logo, this case comes with enough room to store your console, two controllers, and even a stack of games if you'd like. The bag also features a shoulder strap so you can keep your highly coveted system close to your chest at all times.
G-Story's bag features many standard travel case requirements, including a non-slip mat, high-quality waterproof nylon finish, and a leather carrying handle. Unlike other brands, though, G-Story also includes some free accessories for your DualSense controller, with a silicone protective cover and analog stick caps included with the purchase of the case.
Ztotop's PS5 case is probably the most nondescript of the cases available for the console, and that isn't a bad thing. If you prefer not to advertise that you're carrying around a next-gen console with you for one reason or another, then this is for you. Ztotop's bag has enough room for the console, two controllers, the PS5 Media Remote, and any cords you might need.
Tons of great PS5 travel case options
It might be hard to believe, but the PS5 already came out over a year ago. In that time, a surprising amount of travel cases have popped up across digital storefronts that help make playing the best PS5 games on the road easier. If you're looking for something that does everything, including play games, then the Case Club Portable Gaming Station is going to be for you. But, of course, this does much more than simply store your console, so it might not be for everyone.
If you're looking for something that offers some serious protection, then Casematix's hardshell offering may be for you. Not only does it have waterproof features, but its rugged case and foam inserts also make it crush and shockproof as well. Ztotop's travel case is also a great choice if you're looking to stay lowkey in your travels, but still want to take some gaming gear with you.
It's hard to go wrong with any of the options on this list. But, unfortunately, when it comes to taking your PS5 on the go, it's not exactly the easiest to do on your own. The system doesn't make for the best travel partner, thanks to its bulky design. However, with some careful planning and the proper case, you'll be able to protect your console and ensure that you'll have one of the best gaming machines in the world with you wherever you go.
