This bag has a briefcase-style handle with an ergonomic molded grip on the front, right above the pocket.

Very few gig bags have this feature!

That means when you carry an instrument, the neck is pointing UP, safely nestled between your arm and chest, instead of sticking out in front of you. If you're going up a flight of stairs - especially if you're carrying an amp in your other hand - you REALLY appreciate not having the neck dangling out front, waving around at knee level! Perfect for maneuvering through crowds, subway turnstiles, or doors with push-bars.

I agree with a previous reviewer that the way the zipper is configured on the pocket is a little odd, but I adjusted to opening it from the side fairly quickly. Frankly, the advantage of the "briefcase-carry" outweighs everything else for me. If it was only available in Hot Pink or with Hello Kitty pictures all over it, I'd still buy it. No kidding, that handle will spoil you!
Nice light weight! Excellent handle. The zippers look like they're going to hold up - they're heavy-duty.
It's well designed and assembled.
The last bag I had that I liked this much cost ten times as much, and was quite a bit heavier. This one is perfect!

I was completely disappointed in this Gig Bag. I looked at one in CG a year ago which had great padding and protection. The one that arrived had very little to offer in the way of protection for my Bass. AT best this is a cheaper value bag. Roadrunners design is weak, I would not recommend this bag to anyone. If I wasn't moving across the country I would return it to get a refund.

A must buy for budgeters

By ronky

from California

Comments about Road Runner Express Bass Guitar Gig Bag:

This bag was a little better than what I was expecting. It's a good size with padding I feel very comfortable with. The only thing I don't like about this bag is the large front pocket, it unzips all around. I would have liked a pocket that doesnt completely unzip and let everything fall out. The large pocket is being used to store a cable, and extra strings in there (and there is room for maybe two extra cables. The small bag is good for storing your tuner and extra picks (and any other little things you may need). Overall I feel this bag was a good buy with a very tiny con, I didn't buy this back for the pockets

Comments about Road Runner Express Bass Guitar Gig Bag:

I bought anew MF "Professional" bag for my SX '62 Jazz Bass, and it was large enough for that axe, plus maybe an acoustic guitar to boot! It was huge!!...So I bought this case, and it fits the SX like it was made for it. Is very well made, given the price.

Comments about Road Runner Express Bass Guitar Gig Bag:

Wha?
Bass bag is perfect. My bass doesn't go out often but it now has a safe way to travel when it does. The bag is great quality, sufficiently padded and very durable. For the price it's a major score.

    Comments about Road Runner Express Bass Guitar Gig Bag:

    This gig bag is a quality product well made by Road Runner. That is why I bought it. All sewn seams and materials used to construct the product are of good quality.

    I would have liked to have the carry strap on the back run from bottom of the case to the headstock area instead of the standard backpack strap arrangement. I have yet to run into a backpacking bassist on a trail or while camping. You can use one of the straps to make it an over the shoulder carry bag but it is not comfortable.

    I am not a fan of the side handle being on an angle. When your hand grabs it the weight of the guitar makes it feel tilted and out of balance at the wrist. Not a huge problem. The front grab handle is cool.

    The two pocket pouch is generous enough to store a cord, tuner and supplies.

    It cradles & protects my Modulus Q5 well.

    I would recommend this product to all interested.

    Peace

    First Bag

    By Josh The Bassist

    from Greensboro, NC

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Road Runner Express Bass Guitar Gig Bag:

    So, this is the first gig bag I've ever owned, and I didn't know what to expect other than a more light-weight solution to carrying around a heavy bass. The two pockets on the front offer great storage. This bag has shoulder straps on the back to make the bass very easy to carry around. The shoulder straps are not padded, but adjustable nylon straps. I don't really mind that, but some people might. The padding seems sufficient, and I'll see over time if it truly is. The exterior material is tough enough to withstand a hot iron while applying a patch. :) I'm impressed with this inexpensive little bag, and am considering getting 2 more in the near future for my other 2 basses. MUCH easier to carry the bass around with this than the heavy case.

          This is a great gig bag. It is well made. Great zippers and quality handles. There is some protection and that is a big plus. I would describe it as scratch protection. There is enough foam that it stands up against the wall on it's own but If you slam it in a car door you're going to break the guitar. I have an Epiphone Viola ( Violin Bass ) and it fits nicely with a Strap, Cord, and Tuner in the pocket. Great Gig Bag.

              Comments about Road Runner Express Bass Guitar Gig Bag:

              This is a very light-weight, easy to carry bag that offers decent protection for a bass. The side walls are sturdier than I expected, and the front and back padding is sufficient.

              My Ibanez GSR-200 fits perfectly in the case.

              My only gripe is that the pocket sizes are a bit odd. The large pocket isn't quite big enough to hold sheet music without bending the corners of the paper a bit. It's not a huge deal, though.
