Since my Stelling banjo is approximately the same weight as small car, I got this to carry the banjo to rehearsals - and never to put in the back of a car with other gear. However, this bag is so strong and protective that I never use the plywood case for the banjo anaymore. I actually think the RB bag is better protection. One minus is that it is a tight fit, and it squeezes on the head and the bridge. I cant fit anything large into the large carrying compartment (not even a cable) because I worry about the pressure on the head. This is a minor concern since it's more important to keep the bag light. And it is super light.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?
Top Quality Banjo Case!

Yes, I called it a case, because it's much more than a simple gig bag.
The Reunion Blues Continental gig bag is probably the best protection you can get outside of a hard case, and it can have more shock/impact protection in some circumstances. I've got one for my Telecaster, and the guitar feels extremely safe and secure, so I was confident the banjo case variant would be similar.
This is the 'Midnight Series', or black colour in other words.
I wasn't bothered about the colour, but the black was a bit cheaper, so that made my mind up.
It's significantly larger than most gig bags in all dimensions, has a huge amount of rigid padding all the way around, has a specially designed neck block for holding the banjo in place, and has protective pads at the bridge and headstock areas.
Although this bag is larger than I required for my 11" rim openback banjo, it is constructed in a way that it holds the pot tight at the back and front, so again there is little movement once the neck is fastened to the support block. Nevertheless, a rolled up towel around the rim will serve to hold it even more snugly during transport.
The case, while not featherlight like many gig bags, is still impressively portable for its bulk. The carry handle is a work of art; feels solid in the hand, is soft yet substantial, and is positioned so that the case is beautifully balanced when carrying, distributing the weight very efficiently. The shoulder straps are tucked away in a zippered compartment, and there is a further rear compartment, two large front compartments and an additional handle near the top on the back.
The heavy duty zippers for the lid go all the way around allowing the lid to be opened fully, revealing the striking electric blue diamond padding within.
it's a stunning bag very well made, and very easy to heft about.
