Old Skool specifically made this strap for Nintendo Labo VR Kit. It's a comfortable, adjustable strap that works perfectly with the headset so you can play without keeping your hands raised all the time. You can easily take it off when you're done and adjust it again to fit multiple people.

This appears to be one of the only head straps specifically designed for the Nintendo Labo VR Ki, making it our choice for the best Labo VR head strap. Sadly the design doesn't include having the Joy-Cons attached. It's the one downside to this headset kit.

Sweat Proof Gaming came out with a great, comfortable headset with stretchy straps to fit all. This is the only headset designed for Nintendo Switch Labo VR that does allow for the Joy-Cons to be connected. It is probably the best Labo VR head strap for Joy-Cons of headsets we have seen.

We didn't list this as our overall best choice because it is currently only available for pre-order for the next batch. This is a popular head strap that regularly sells out. When they do sell out, pre-ordering ensures you will get a head strap when the next set is made.

If the cardboard options aren't your style, try out the OIVO 3D VR Glasses made with EVA and Oxford. It doesn't allow for any game that requires the Joy-Con attachments to stay on the system, but it does have a great design for holding the console itself.

These straps are adjustable, so it will be able to fit both adults and children, but the nose notch may not fit those with a larger nose. Not only can you adjust the straps on the sides of the head but also across the top too. This provides a more customized fit for everyone.
