I have a few bags that I have bought from Thomann. The bags I have are mainly for carrying speakers and as my speakers are generally small ( I refuse to lug around huge speakers for the kind of work I do at the moment) I use small bags that are designed for something else. The Meinl Bongo Bags for instance. Put up against one of the excellent Meinl bags this bag has a bit less padding but seemingly better zips. I did not realise from the picture and the description supplied that it had a shoulder strap but it does and a good one too. The handles are fine being both long enough and sturdy. The material is well up to the task and overall I am very happy with it. Be aware that the sizing is a bit misleading. I know it is hard to give an accurate representation of the sizes in some instances but suffice it to say I managed to put two speakers in the same bag!!! This was a bonus for me as the speakers (EV EV EVID 4.2 + some custom made stand adapters + the manufacturers bracket) are light enough that two in one bag is easily managed. Really for the money these are great. Designed with enough thought to give the customer a decent product at a good price. I actually feel with Thomann products that they are aware we are professionals ( serious amateurs, serious hobbyists) and design a product that is up to being used in the real world. Good stuff guys!!
