    I am also very satisfied with this bag. Ballistic nylon is very durable, zippers are heavy grade and the rigid reinforcing for the bell and slide does not compromise the light weight or comfort. Plenty of plush padding inside easily accommodates my double-trigger, 13-inch bell instrument. Parents, this is not a bag I would buy for my high-school trombone player who may have to put it in an equipment truck. It is more than adequate for a conscientious adult who does not treat this case like a piece of luggage because the instrument is not adequately protected from abuse. I feel I could drop the bag from my shoulder without worry, but definitely not have anything piled on top or crushed. The bag includes one loose mouthpiece pouch that is also sold separately, so there’s no need to purchase one unless you have another mouthpiece. Additional storage pouch on the side opposite the slide pouch runs the length of the bag and easily accommodates an instrument stand, plunger and straight mute but not a cup mute. There is no padding in the storage pouch. Smaller zipper pouch inside the storage pouch is big enough for two mouthpieces and small accessories.

    Comfortably fits my 10in-bell Getzen. The bag is very lightweight, and excellent for carrying extended distances. The shoulderstrap is fine- I have broad enough shoulders that I can wear this case slung across one shoulder, rifle-style, as opposed to slung across my chest. I can imagine this would be difficult or perhaps uncomfortable for smaller people. I would not wear this strap while bicycling- I plan to buy the backpack straps in the future.
    The side pouch fits my horn stand, plunger, a cheap straight mute, lube, polishing equipment, barrel-rod, and small accessories. I would not put mouthpieces in this pouch unless they were in protective casings, as I wear the case bell-up and set it on the ground bell-down. I have a proper satchel for my other mutes.
    The outside walls of the case are rugged and durable- standard issue for Protec cases these days. The inside is a nice, soft material that is very easy to slide the horn into. I wouldn’t put this case on an airplane (maybe in the overheads, but definitely not below deck), but my hard case is amply suitable for getting kicked around.

    This case is great. It provides very good protection for my King 6-B Duo Gravis Bass Trombone but doesn’t weigh nearly as much as an old-fashioned wooden case would.

    The two options of carrying straps (over the shoulder or backpack style) are wonderful to have.
