Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review: Precision Cushioning Too Expensive

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review: No Delivery at High Price

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case

2.0/5 Buy on Apple

Apple made one accessory that was not included with the Apple Vision Pro — an impractically large $200 travel suitcase that isn't very good at what it claims to do.

It's no surprise that Apple introduced a travel case as oddly designed and expensive as this one. The Apple Vision Pro is a $3,500 computer that needs a protective home that's great for travel, but Apple's case falls short.

When I first saw the pillow-like outer shell of the travel case, I knew it was huge. The Apple Vision Pro is a surprisingly small headset compared to competitors like the PSVR 2, but this case doesn't capitalize on that advantage at all.

However, the Apple Vision Pro needs a home, and the travel case still serves as a decent place to store the headset — in the office. It stores components neatly and securely and makes it easy to move, but difficult to move around with.

Apple Vision Pro Tourist case review — Design

For most of Apple's history, it has been the leader in thin and light devices with minimal packaging. What's shocking about Travel Case is that it contradicts this philosophy.

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review: Organize your stuff without too much hassle

It wasn't until pre-orders for the Apple Vision Pro began that the travel case was introduced . The plump appearance seemed to be reminiscent of the spacesuits worn by NASA astronauts in the 60s.

Some even suggested that this case could also be used as a travel pillow, but this idea was quickly abandoned once we received one of these. The soft outer shell subtly covers the hard case — Plus, he's too thick.

The ripstop material on the exterior is designed to prevent rips and tears in harsh environments, which seems a little overkill for likely home and airport conditions. The retractable handle makes the travel case easy to carry, but the lack of a shoulder strap limits it.

The material itself is questionable for a case that could end up stuffed under an airplane seat or end up at your feet on a bus. The bright white color will fade and get dirty over time, but ours hasn't been driven enough yet to judge how quickly that will happen.

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review: Molded interior leaves little wiggle room

Inside the travel case you will find a molded design that holds your Apple Vision Pro without any wiggle room. The design appears to expect users to insert the headset with the Solo Knit Band attached as it follows the look perfectly, but the Dual Loop Band can also remain attached.

Apple designed the travel case to minimize the need for user action to put Apple Vision Pro away or take it out again. There's nothing locking the headset in place, and there's no need to remove anything.

The component that presses against the Light Seal and holds the headset in place can be adjusted depending on the size of the Light Seal. To adjust this part, you can lift up a piece of Velcro.

The battery is secured with Velcro to the top of the case. Users should disconnect the battery when storing Apple Vision Pro to prevent it from running low and overheating.

The included accessory bag holds a cleaning cloth, charging cable, power supply, extra strap, and included extra pad. There won't be enough room without trading for something else, but I was able to fit the Magic Trackpad under my accessory bag.

Apple Vision Pro Tourist case review — Size

The Apple Travel Case is 8.78 inches wide, 6.5 inches deep, and 11.69 inches long. He weighs just over 2 pounds.

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review: You'll Need a Bigger Bag

There are not many competing options yet. Those that exist run the gamut from low-cost options originally created for the Meta Quest to custom designs from high-end case manufacturers.

For example, the Waterfield Shield case for the Apple Vision Pro is probably the smallest carrying case you'll find because it requires you to remove the straps to install it. It is 7.75 inches wide, 5.25 inches deep, and 7.5 inches long. It weighs 1 lb.

The Apple Vision Pro Travel Case is significantly larger in all dimensions.

Although I have not yet tried examples from other companies, it is clear that Apple has great intentions. It provides plenty of space for a precise fit and the fastest possible transition from storage to use.

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review: Similar-sized backpack holds much more stuff

However, this means that you need to carry a case that is larger than some people's backpacks. My Nomatic bag, used to carry my iPad Pro, Magic Keyboard case, and a number of accessories, is thinner than the Apple Vision Pro-only travel case.

One could argue that this is the beauty of spatial computing – — All you need is a headset to complete tasks. But without room for a much-needed keyboard, this huge marshmallow feels like a missed opportunity.

Some are used to carrying an incredibly small Bluetooth keyboard with the Vision Pro, but this is outside our minimum size tolerances for comfortable typing. My Nuphy keyboard is very small but needs to be carried separately.

To sum it up, the Apple Vision Pro Travel Case is a large bag that inherently cannot be carried on its own. With it you will always have an extra bag.

Apple Vision Pro Travel case review &mdash ; Travel

Because the Apple Vision Pro travel case is so bulky, it's hard to imagine it fitting into any backpack or luggage. Our small weekend travel suitcase would have to give up most of its capacity to the travel case, which is unacceptable when you need clothes for your trip.

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review: At Least You Won't Lose It

There is no other alternative than carrying the travel case in your hand. The top strap could fit over the handle of a rolling suitcase, but this causes the travel case to stick out awkwardly.

Openly carrying around a ostentatious bag filled with computer equipment worth over $4,000 is also not very advisable. He yells, “Hey guys, I have a lot of money here.”

Apple's solution is very similar to Apple's. It fits the Apple Vision Pro perfectly and works great as long as you don't go anywhere with people, dirt or sharp edges.

This is very impractical for travel use. The lack of a shoulder strap means that you always need one hand to carry the suitcase.

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review: Fits Almost Everything You Need Except Your Keyboard

It's hard to imagine taking this bag on a plane and put it under the water seat as a personal item. There's not even room for a physical keyboard, so hopefully you can bring carry-on luggage on your flight.

Having said that, Apple's travel case is at least small enough to qualify as a personal item by most airlines' definitions. Typically a personal item is a wallet, but a travel case fits into this size class.

On some flights, personal items and hand luggage are allowed. Carry-on luggage can be much larger, closer to a large backpack — that's the saving grace here.

Review of the Apple Vision Pro travel case — a home for your headset

If push comes to shove, we'd use a travel case to transport the Apple Vision Pro, as that's our only official option at the moment. Third-party options go beyond the usual ones found on Amazon, and we'll be evaluating them too.

Apple Vision Pro travel case review: lush appearance – good pedestal

The best use of a travel case is not for travel at all — it was for storage. I'd rather not leave my fancy new glass-covered headset to inevitably be destroyed by a curious pet or partner.

This makes the Apple Travel Case the perfect place to store the Apple Vision Pro when I'm not carrying it. At the end of each shift, it is turned off, the battery is disconnected, and everything is neatly placed in the case.

If I want to use the headset elsewhere or leave the house with it, it's already packaged and ready to use. I certainly don't think I'll always store the Apple Vision Pro at home this way, but for now it's a good option.

However, I cannot recommend that anyone buy a travel case just to store the Apple Vision Pro. Buy a mannequin head, a third-party case, or just securely mount it somewhere on your desk.

The price of $200 seems unattainable for an already expensive headset. That's what a storage upgrade costs, and having 512GB instead of 256GB costs a lot more than an overpriced and oversized case.

Apple's return to impractical beauty

The Apple Pro Travel Case vision is a good item. It has a soft, plush texture, convenient zippers, and precise dimensions to accommodate your expensive headset.

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review: Showy and Overpriced

However, spending a lot of money on a watermelon-sized item designed for travel. I'm pretty sure there will be better options from third parties, and some of them have even been announced.

If you have the money for an Apple travel case, it's a good buy. It's just a little impractical for the purpose it was created for.

It may seem like I'm not crazy about the travel case, but I really liked the purchase — but durability and washability are still in question. It's clear to me that over time there will be better ways to store and transport the Apple Vision Pro.

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review — Pros

  • The durable case is great for storing your Apple Vision Pro.
  • The molded interior keeps things in place without clunky straps or buckles.
  • Apple Vision Pro can be carried with you. inserts without disassembly.
  • An accessory bag is a smart solution compared to built-in pockets.
  • A place for a Magic Trackpad.

Apple Vision Pro Travel Case Review — Cons

  • The plush white exterior seems to serve no purpose other than to make the case thicker and more noticeable
  • The bright white material is waiting to get dirty beyond measure in public in places
  • The case is larger than most bags and thicker than modern computer backpacks.
  • No shoulder strap or suitcase pass-through.
  • Price higher, than competitors, but does not have a noticeable effect. advantage or premium material.

Rating: 2 out of 5

Despite its impracticality and price, this is still a travel suitcase, which corresponds to its basic functionality. It can be used to store and transport the Apple Vision Pro, but it's too big, too expensive, and too ostentatious.

I can't recommend Apple's travel case enough. If you need somewhere to store your Apple Vision Pro, buy a cheap option from Amazon until better third-party options become available.

The Apple Vision Pro Travel Case is a rare misstep from Apple. It feels like something was built in a laboratory, with no regard for dirt, straps or backpacks.

How to Buy an Apple Vision Pro Travel Case

Like the Apple Vision Pro, Apple is the only retailer that sells a travel case. On the Apple website it costs $199.
