At 70% off retail this bag is outstanding! The padding is thick with a hard rubber pad on the bottom to protect against dings if you set it down too hard. The handle is thick and seems strudy enough for casual use (i.e. not touring). The sling strap is a bit thin, but seems okay (I rarely use a strap anyway). The pocket is okay for most smaller accessories too. The zippers look strong enough for most normal use. I'm sure there are people out there who will tear this up through brutal use, but I take care of my gear and expect this to last for many years.

I bought one for my open back banjo, and it was so well padded I bought a second for my resonator model. I thought it would be to thin for such a heavy banjo when I first ordered it, but it handles the resonator fine.

I would not use this - or any gigbag - for flying, or anywhere you have to let someone else handle your banjo when you are not around (who would use a gig bag for that anyway). I have already used it for a cross sountry trip, and it more than handled the constant use. I can't think of why I would pay 2-3 times as much for the same level of padding on other brands. I buy a gigbag for protection - not looks. Save the extra money to put towards your next banjo...

I needed a gig bag for a Dean Backwoods Six string banjo that I just bought used for a Dixieland gig (the 5-string wouldn't work). I was surprised how well padded it is. It's a bit tight around the resonator, but that will probably loosen up in time. Don't be afraid to give it a try. Paul Race - School of the RockI

    Comments about Road Runner Banjo Bag:

    Because my banjo, handed down to me by my grandfather, is a vintage prototype, it was impossible to find a hard case that would fit the depth of the head. I made at least a half a dozen inquiries with different companies. As a last resort, in order to protect the banjo in storage, I purchased the soft case. The case neck is too long, but it's functional and at a great price.

        Comments about Road Runner Banjo Bag:

        Very thick, sturdy padding. I feel very good about the level of protection it offers. It even has a hard plastic square on the bottom for added protection.The cover seems very sturdy, and the zipper stitching both look good, so I'm guessing it will hold up reasonably well. The only downside is that it only has the one little pocket, which won't hold much. A little box for your fingerpicks and drumhead tool; maybe a cable - maybe not. You will end up carrying a second bag around for music and such.

          Comments about Road Runner Banjo Bag:

          I'm glad I bought this carry-bag. Even though I don't own a really expensive instrument, I needed a convenient and safe method to store and transport. This bag is the ticket. It appears to be well-made with good and tightly-woven and water-resistant material. The stitching is tight and has a smooth zipper mechanism as well as a comfortable and sturdy handle. It is double-walled with padding. If I traveled with it more, and other people were handling it, I'd go with a rigid case. For now, this bag is serving me well.

              Not at all flimsy and the zipper feels really smooth and strong. The foam feels firm, is nice and thick and the exterior fabric is slippery and sturdy feeling. The pocket is oddly shaped, but the zipper goes all the way around so things won't get lost in the bottom. My 12" pot fretless fits perfectly. Compares very well to the $200 bag I've used for many years. But...a color would have been nice. Black absorbs heat and is boring. I like red!

                Bag is better than I thought it would be. It has great padding, better than I thought it would, It looks great, and seems to be great protection for my instrument. Well worth the money.
