Before you buy, measure your mandolin and compare to the inside dimensions of the case. A Kentucky 505A style mandolin, (measures 10-inches across the body), fits inside with rather too much room -- a good 5/8-inch on either side. If the case is roughly handled, the instrument will likely bounce back-n-forth laterally.
Shoulder straps and outside pocket are plus, but outside pocket measures only 7-1/2 by 9 so is not large enough for music books. Inside compartment is small. Durable outer covering. Very lightweight. Thick padding, so a bit bulky.
Only time will tell, but appears to be very well built.
If your instrument fits, you'll think this case a very good value.

Not recomended for Gibson A4 mandolin.
Nice case if your mandolin fits.
My Gibson A4 is smaller than the inside fitting, and the neck is not long enough to clear the neck rest/internal storage compartment.
I had to take out the inside compartment to allow my headstock to clear the case when closed.
I would have returned it, but had to go on the road the next day, so I modified the case.
Good case for the money, if it fits your mandolin.
Good value if it fits your mandolin

    I have 2 of these cases. Lightweight, decent protection, good backpack straps. I took my 1928 Gibson A style Mandolin to Ireland in it.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped A-Style Mandolin Case:

      I was very surprised at how stylish, sturdy, and protective this case is for my A-style Mandolin and my Mandolin fits perfectly within it. The storage pockets are terrific for storage of whatever extra things you need to carry. This is a well made case and I highly recommend purchasing one .... I'm so glad I did.

      Durafoam Case

      Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped A-Style Mandolin Case:

      When I bought a mandolin way back when I didn't have the money to upgrade from the cheapo soft case it came with, and that was a mistake! Traveling with it was a hassle because of the difficulty of trying not to smash my mando because of my poorly-padded case. With this one, all my problems were solved. Some small downfalls compared to a hardshell case (I have a hardshell for my guitar) are that you can't stick bumper stickers to it, and that there isn't room to store a full size book of music in the case. If these aren't super important to you, (they weren't to me!) order away!

          Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped A-Style Mandolin Case:

          Bought one of these when I started playing mandolin (Rogue RM-100). Didn't quite fit -- the body cavity was a tad deep. Put folded towel in the bottom, all fixed. Side-to-side, it fit the RM-100 well, with just enough room for the strap to tuck along the side.

          Picked up a Loar LM-300, got another one of these cases. The body cavity of the case is about one inch too deep and one and a half too wide. Again, towel to the rescue.

          I often travel for work, and didn't want to have a week or two down time between practice sessions when I first started, so I took it with me. Due to its length, I have always had to check it at the gate. It also fits just fine in one half of my full-size suitcase; clothes on one side, mando case and shoes on the other. 40,000 miles and never a problem, even when I had to check it in separately with rest of the luggage.

          Super Little Case

          By Gretchen Turner

          from Tipton Iowa

          Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped A-Style Mandolin Case:

          I think this is definitely a keeper and would recommend it to anyone needing such a case.
          I really like the durafoam case. It's sturdy but if I bump anything with it the instrument is safe and it doesn't damage what it hits. It fits my instrument like a glove. Also like the pockets.
          So far it's great. I haven't had it outside the house yet but I don't see any problem areas.
          I'm very pleased with the value. The ones I looked at in stores were going to cost me $150! And they didn't appear any better than this one!

          Rec'd my case yesterday and was pleasantly surprise by the construction and quality. Nice padded inside, and nice hard outer shell. This one will last awhile and will protect you mandolin. I'm getting another.

          You will like this case. Very high quality. The interior very plush. And what a great price. Planning on taking this case as a carry on, on my next flight and the shoulder straps will come in handy. The inside compartment is smaller than I like, but you have your outside pouch witch is roomy for extra accessories. The case is black.

          Comments about Musician's Gear Durafoam Shaped A-Style Mandolin Case:

          May not be the best choice for very frequent use, as zipper takes time to open and close, and may not survive openings and closings several times a day for years on end. Perfect case for the occasional mando excursion.
