Excellent Case, but couple of minor usage points...
As predicted by other reviews, this case turned out to be more than just a gig bag, and it provides much more protection. Compared to other gig / shoulder strap bags, it's not cheap, but in this case you get what you pay for. It's very well made, and although light, is amazingly rigid once it's all zipped up. All the straps, buckles and zips are 'industrial' strength. Loaded and on your shoulders, it feels very comfortable an secure, and doesn't slip at all. Makes walking a distance with your banjo almost a pleasure!
I had a couple of slight concerns that I worked around though.
The neck support, at least with my banjo, isn't high enough. When you close the lid zip up, the neck end of the case rises up and starts to press on the tuning pegs. I'm sure it's not pressing that hard, but I didn't like this direct contact at this very delicate end of the banjo. I really wanted to see the peg head 'floating free' in inside the case. Bear in mind that when you've got these types of bag on your shoulders, low doors are the enemy - sooner or later you'll hit the top of the bag on the top of a door frame, right where your peg head is touching.
To get around this, I use a small pad under the neck where it rests on the neck rest, and this holds the peg head clear.
My other slight concern is the same as another reviewer commented on - when you close the lid, it presses down on the skin and bridge. This does hold it very snuggly, and it's probably not pressing as much as I think, and there is suede pad at this point, so it's by design. It is, though, enough to make me not want to keep it closed up this case for long periods - but that's not what I bought it for. It does also stop me using the pocket on outside as filling this will make it this more pronounced. But that's not a great loss, find somewhere else for the beer bottle!
Overall, this case is by far the best gig bag I've had, light, well made, provides good protection. I might be being oversensitive, but just watch the two points above. If I lost it I'd get another one...
First of all, this bag is totally solid, I never have any worries that my banjo is not being totally protected. The only issue I have is that the backpack straps are (like most gig bags) set to low on the body of the bag, so the neck sticks up quite high. This means doorwars and tram/metro hand-railing always get in the way.
It would be awesome if they were set even just 1-2 inches higher up the neck of the case, or maybe some adjustable system to fit different body types.
Other than that, this bag is perfect. Would (and do) recommend again.
