Mid-Bag Suspension System reduces the risk of dings or dents.
Gard Bags have long been a favorite among musicians at all levels needing quality protection at a reasonable price. The Mid-Bag Suspension series builds upon this popularity. In ordinary bags, the music instrument rests on the bottom of the bag. If dropped, the protruding parts are likely to dent. Using strategically placed blocks of padding the Mid-Bag Suspension series "suspends" your instrument away from the sides. Further stabilizing the instrument is a dense foam cone mounted to a hard disc on the inside of the bag. This suspension system reduces the risk of dings or dents if the bag knocks into a wall or is dropped from a short distance.

Comments about Gard Mid-Suspension Sousaphone Gig Bag:
Good, pretty, cheap. A bargain! Lightweight affordable protection as an alternative to the (more expensive) Protec bag or a cumbersome hardshell case.
Lots of nice extras: a handy pouch, leather luggage tag, two strap handles, removable shoulder strap, backpack straps. Note: you'll look like a mutant teenage ninja turtle with this bag strapped to your back!
Also included for added protection are custom "mid-bag-suspension" foam inserts to protect your souzy in transit. You place the inserts at strategic points most likely to receive damage during a fall. It took me a little while to figure it out how best to place the foam (a diagram would be helpful) but now my Conn 14k is safe as a joey kangaroo in its momma's pouch.
Initially I had difficulty closing up the zipper until I found the "sweet spot" for the foam inserts and until the fabric worked in around the sousaphone.
