Almost 5 stars, but a small design issue.
By Rob M.
Overall, this is an awesome bass case. This is the equivalent of the lightweight foam-style cases out there, but a gig bag. My P-Bass fits in there like a glove, and love the outside pocket, which is set up to hold pens, business cards, wallet, paperwork. I also have one of these for my Strat.
I have found 2-3 drawbacks to this case:
1. There is a mesh pocket on the front, and I mist have caught it on something as it tore within 5 minutes of taking it outside the house. I don't make a habit of storing things in a visible, outside pouch, so this lack of functionality for this aspect doesn't affect me much.
2 & 3. Someone mentioned the following about this case, I poo-poo'd it but it really is an issue: You cannot place it on the floor on its side without the case over. That was #2. #3 is that you can't prop it up perpendicular to a wall without it falling over. This does not take away from the protection the case gives the guitar, but it gets to be really annoying after awhile. This does NOT happen with the guitar version of this style of case (that I have - it might happen to others).
This case has backpack-style straps, something that I really wanted because as a solo musician, I attempt to take all gear in one trip, and being able to throw this on my back for a short distance frees up a hand to carry a board or small amp.
I'd have no problem literally tossing this into a van/pickup as I feel the case does a great job at protecting the bass. An airplane? Probably not, but I would if I were in a pinch.
Overall, great case to protect your P-Bass and worth the extra cost when compared to a soft sided gig bag.

Better than Mono and SO MUCH CHEAPER.
By Lisa Lightning
This is SO much cheaper than the Mono, which I also tried, and I like it better. VERY sturdy. Slim profile, more narrow than Mono. Best advantage over Mono is the shoulder straps--VERY comfortable to wear as backpack. The Mono's backpack straps cut into my neck. Also Mono seemed half as sturdy as this one.
Only downside, as others mentioned, is the zipper is a bit sticky, and actually I might return mine for a replacement because the zipper is a little curved around one rivet and I think it's a manufacturing error. Also the nice furry lining at one place is a little in the way of the zipper, but not too bad. Note: I have to remove my guitar strap to close case, but it's okay because there's a cute compartment under neck where I can store it. I may have to sell my SKB hard shell case now!

By Kevin Hong
I bought it for a while and I totally love it! I use it to carry my G&L M2000 bass.
Before I was debating if I should get a hard shell case or a soft-shell case. Then I found this one.
Even tho it looks like a soft shell case, it is actually really durable and it is way lighter than the hard shell case.
I use it for plane travel a few times and till now my bass is still perfectly fine.
Almost all my friends around me are using this case. Definitely recommend it.
