This is truly a lightweight carry-case in all ways and you should not look for or expect more. In those terms, however, it is unbeatable. It costs only Euro 40 but you really get more value than that. It is very well made, has a strong zipper and overall looks the part. The inside is well laid out and quite predictable. The case is very light in weight, what I consider a great attribute for easy carrying or moving the bass around. I also think that it is best suited for uses mainly of the light kind, like keeping the bass in the house, protecting it from dust or routine falls and carrying it on short movements to the studio or class. My Harley Benton HBZ-2004 with which I bought the case fits neatly and snugly in it without bouncing around and the case carries in a well-balanced manner without tipping on one or the other end. The product description says that it "offers the firm protection of a hard case" but I do not think that heavy use, transportation or storage is what the case is made or good for. It definitely feels firm but you also get a sense that it is brittle and would not stand-up to heavy objects leaning, falling down on or pressing against it. I thus do not think that either the case itself or your bass would be safe if you checked them as cargo on a transporter or flight and other items came to rest on them. Furthermore, while the product description says that the surface material is weatherproof nylon, when I spread some water on the case, it clearly is not 100% waterproof. It is also evidently not tear-proof. Finally, it is actually quite a long case that I had to drop down the back seat of my sedan car for it to fit in the boot! So, in all, you should be very clear in your mind about what you are looking for before buying this case. If you are looking for heavy duty use, impregnable or long-term protection for your bass, I do not think this item would suit your needs. If, like me, you would be looking for an inexpensive, light, easy, routine and not heavy protection or transporter for your bass, you likely may get as well satisfied as I have been.
