This stupid thing on the other hand, barely fit my head at all, and with the giant cupping band around the bottom you need to loosen it all the way every time to take it off. Awful if you're trying to socialize.
I found it very uncomfortable, not because anything stuck in, but for the opposite reason; it failed to get a grip on your head at all. Just a big smooth round band that doesn't rotate with your head unless you really squeeze it uncomfortably tight.
The wheel at the bank being recessed into the strap - that's a bad decision. It's impractical. It pinches your fingers a little. The stick-out dial on the knockoff models is more sensible, and nobody cares what the back of your head looks like when you're in VR.
And the battery pack is absolutely miserable, sorry, but it's the worst feature of it all because they totally failed to integrate it properly. You can't plug a data cable into it, it has no passthrough. And the menu in the Quest OS shows it as a special extra power source, but the firmware doesn't recognise it as special, if you leave the battery plugged into the Quest, then the Quest behaves as though it's on main power, and runs updates and turns on in the background until is drains the battery all the way to zero, not stopping at a low power level to protect the battery. I'm sure this damaged mine, towards the end I was getting only ~45 minutes play time from it instead of ~90.
Mine snapped at the strap, like they all do (google this if it's not familiar - it's a known fault). So I could have got a replacement for free, but I didn't want one. I cut off the top band and sewed it onto my knockoff, which is still doing fine, to upgrade that with the nicer strap material. This strap has the better materials but it's poorly designed.

Straight up this battery strap is a very good thing, it extends the internal battery life of your Quest 2 by about 2-3 hours depending on what you're doing (obviously games eat up more power than watching a movie)... at the end of the day you get on average about 4-6 hours of total battery life, which is very useful. Compared to the included Quest 2 material strap, the battery on the back and the extra weight of the plastic helps balance out the weight of the Quest 2 itself making things feel more stable and generally more comfy. Also the adjustment knob at the back of the Elite Strap lets you get a good seal on your face. There is a USB C cable which travels from the battery pack and connects to the USB C port on the Quest 2... for charging both batteries there is a USB C port on the bottom of the battery pack (below the adjustment knob thing). Unfortunately this second USB C port does not allow for pass-through for Link (connecting the Quest 2 to a gaming PC)... you need to unplug the battery cable and let it hang to the side to use link with the main USB C port. This isn't really an issue as the Link hookup itself should keep you charged (if you have a quality cable, like the official Oculus Link cable), but the positioning of the back downward facing USB C port would make for a more logical spot for tethering (vs the front right hand side). Either way it's fine, just a bit of a missed opportunity imho.
The case itself is also quite nice, it's a dense zip up clam shell/pod type thing and is covered by a very wooly feeling felt type material... there is also a faux soft leathery strap to carry it with. It's quite nice and does exactly what it's supposed to. Only downside is the lack of (re-pluggable) holes for charging the Quest 2 in the case itself, it needs to be resting halfway out of the case, and even upside down if you have the Elite Battery Strap attached. Also the hidden zipper has stuck a few times when trying to open it for me, but I have managed to work that out. It can get stuck on the USB C cable which connects the battery pack to the headset, you can avoid this by making sure you push it down in the case before zipping it up. Overall a nice hard shell case, especially if you plan on taking it places!
At the end of the day, I do think the comfort and extra battery life is worth it and the case is well made, and very cool looking... I'm only removing a star for the minor issues listed above... ie: The lack of a convenient USB C pass-through in the battery pack for Oculus Link and the lack of a charge port, or ports really, along with a possible fussy zipper in the carrying case. Buy it for the comfort factor, the double the battery life factor and the cool case to store it in factor and you're golden! :)
Update 1 Oct 22 2020: having used this for a good solid week now I wanted to mention that I have noticed a bit of stress on the back of my head after long sessions if I've tightened the Elite Strap too much. I'm used to clamping down the halo strap on the Rift S, which maybe is not the best path to take with this Elite Strap (functionally similar but different, the Rift S halo tightens around your entire head, while this elite strap simply pulls and holds the visor tighter to your face), I've found that keeping it a little looser has been better... otherwise I still think this is the way to go!
Update 2 Nov 19 2020: Wanted to point out one annoyance which has come up, if you leave the fully charged battery pack plugged into the headset and turn the headset off for a couple days (not on standby, actually turn it off), when you come back the battery pack will have zero charge. Why? Who knows, but it kind of sucks. The only solution I've found is to disconnect the USB C cable from the Quest 2 when you turn it off... the battery pack will still have a full charge the next time you plug it in.
Update 3 Oct 2021 - One year later and this battery strap is still going strong, no breaks in the plastic, and no issues beyond what was mentioned above!
The cheap (cost-saving) strap that comes with the Quest really isn’t very good. It does the job but it’s a pain to fit (especially if you’re swapping the headset between people) and not very comfortable. This Elite strap is much, much better. It is easier to fit and provides much better support around the occiput. It is expensive (£120 for the strap with battery and carrying case, but, in my opinion, the strap is an essential extra. I found the battery life for the Quest 2 on it’s own was just over 2 hours with gameplay and casting, and with the battery strap I am getting around 4.5-5 hours without needing a charge. I do not have any other headsets to compare with but the weight of the battery around the back of the head definitely improves the balance.
Overall, the strap is an essential extra. The option of the battery strap will depend on personal preference and how long you intend to use the headset in one sitting.
The power strap is very good and gives you almost double battery life. It's well made and ballance's the headset really well. Definitely worth it if you use your oQ2 a lot.
But, the case is a complete joke. Not worth buying separately. You have no option with this package.
The zip has a pathetic piece of string to open/Close the case. And the teeth on the zip are weak and gets stuck.
The interior is tight with no padding.
You have to put the controllers in the middle of the case right next to the vr lenses. If you were using this case for transportation then the controllers would be knocking the lenses.
What were Oculus/facebook thinking when designing this.. Its awful.. But it's OK it you just want to use it for storage to keep your headset away from dust.. 👍
However, as so many other people have also pointed out, the side straps are extremely fragile and within a month of light and very careful use, the strap on mine cracked inexplicably. A great product let down by poor materials.
I have opened a support ticket with Oculus and will update once they respond.
Update: very good after sales service from Ocukus. They have agreed to replace the strap and are sending one out without me having to send the broken one to be assessed. Excellent speed of resolution without argument or fuss. I can't improve the trading of the product, but I five stars to Oculus for customer support.

Un coté fendu après utilisation normale et tout ce qu'il y a de plus classique (voir photos). Oculus a suspendu les envois depuis quelques temps.... Défaut de fabrication en série avoué ? En attente de réponse SAV Amazon..... A suivre mais 3 mois me parait très insuffisant en durée de vie même si le concept est excellent.
