I've just completed my first journey to a gig using this case, involving several trains, cars and walking and found it to be really comfortable. Before this, I was using a hard case with the Nord Stage, and while not particularly heavy, the additional weight combined with the single carry handle made it a bit of a pain when walking any distance, requiring stopping and changing hands frequently. With this soft case, I wore it as a backpack (works well), wore another small backpack on my front and also brought along a wheeled suitcase. This arrangement, while maybe looking a bit strange, was no problem when walking long distances.
As well as offering the shoulder straps, this case can be carried using the small handles seen (useful for short distances), and it also comes with a long single shoulder strap so there are plenty of options. I didn't really use the long single shoulder strap method as it is a bit cumbersome when going through doorways.
The Nord Stage 3 fits snugly in this case and there is a deep pile interior providing better protection against scratches and bashes than most soft cases I have used before. Obviously you will still need to employ caution - you shouldn't set heavy items on top of this and large drops and heavy bashes may be too much for it to protect.
The side pocket is big enough for a sustain pedal and a couple of leads but no more.
It's bright red and says 'Nord' in large letters - I think I would have preferred more inconspicuous styling that would draw attention to its valuable contents, but of course Nord want to advertise their brand.
It's certainly expensive, but I think it is worth the expense for the snug fit, carrying options and deep pile interior. I can't comment on the long-term reliability of the stitching or whether the soft interior will compact yet, but it appears to be well-made and designed.
