Ok, so basically this is a cover for your guitar. It’s not padded at all, but it will keep dust off your instrument and probably keep the rain from touching your wood. Other than that it basically allows you to carry your guitar around either on your back with double strapping, or just toting it in your hands with the two stitched in handles. It’s made of a nylon type of cloth that appears relatively durable. It does have a handy pocket in the front that I carry my extra strings, Alan wrenches, extra picks and tuner in. It does a pretty good job for what it is. But it’s not going to protect your instrument from big falls or drops. I wouldn’t use it to travel like on an airplane with. If your looking for that, get another bag or a case.
