I got my first bass about 2 months ago and i didnt have a case for it so i started to save up and i bought this one. It has everything you need from back straps to carry on your back to many pockets. It is pretty thick which makes it alot more protective. Another godd one that i would have bought was the gigbag by roadrunner with a backpack on it. That helps when you have alot of pedals or cords.

I made a quick decision in the "brick & mortar", after briefly perusing online, both searches made based on price. I have only had it one day, so can't vouch for durability one way or the other. But here's one guy's INITIAL reaction, after a little more inspection. PROS: Good thick padding, as thick as you're gonna find and still have portability; any thicker an it'd be cumbersome. It's a BAG, never will give as much protection as a hardshell, but protection is as would be expected. Handle on mid-front, hanger loop on back are good features. Good LAYOUT of pockets, but I question the location of the one on the headstock. But there's a problem with the pockets; (gettin' to that) I like the IDEA of the "retractable" shoulder straps, it's nice that you can tuck 'em away when not needed. But problem here too. CONS: There are several small inner pockets inside the large pocket on the front. Problem is, you have to UNLOAD EVERYTHING in the pocket to get to 'em. The one thing you KNOW you're gonna need with a 'lectric Bass is CORDS, after all, and that's the only pocket they'll fit in. So there WILL be something in the way of access to those inner pockets. Great idea, but those small pockets could be better located, maybe on the OUTSIDE, or just leave 'em off altogether. Where they are now, I don't see myself using 'em much, if at all. "Retractable" shoulder straps are a GREAT idea! But the storage pocket FOR them is the ONE pocket that absolutely NEEDS TWO ZIPPERS. As it is, you can only zip up from one side once you've deployed the straps for use, and the flap is left dangling on the other side. If you could pull a zipper up from EACH side, the flap would experience less "folding" and less wear & tear. THE SHOULDER STRAPS ARE ATTACHED TOO LOW, and THIS is probably the biggest shortcoming. This makes the case (AND your expensive Bass) ride too HIGH. I've only used it once (last night), and it's already an annoyance. Before I left the house, I'd already hit the headstock of the bag on SEVERAL doorframes, just walkin' around, checkin' it out. Before I got to the Club, I hit several concrete supports in the ceiling of the Parking Garage where I parked. I took it off and stowed the straps before entering the Club, so I wouldn't have to remember to BEND OVER to go through doorways and look STUPID, or forget to bend, and bang the headstock again. I'm what I consider in the range of "average" height (6'1"). Not to be politically incorrect, but was this thing designed by a MIDGET? Like I already said, I just bought it yesterday. I'm probably going back to the store to see what else they have there and since there's ALWAYS a larger selection online, I'll look there too. But I'll just be LOOKING, maybe swapping for another one, but maybe not; I haven't yet decided. The shoulder strap placement may be a problem with ALL of them, & this is the only one I've seen where they can be stowed when not in use. Bottom line: It's not a bad case, but some elements could have been thought out more. I think there are better cases out there, but there are DEFINITELY worse ones, so this gig bag might suit your needs. It's worth a look.

      Comments about Road Runner Roadster Bass Gig Bag:

      I found this particular case to work great because it had adequate padding, was reasonable priced, and had the pockets and features that I needed for accessories, pens, business cards, cords, notepads and other items. I thought the design was excellent and well thought out. This particular bass gig bags seems to have been discontinued though. The newer version doesn't deliver the same amount of versatility (pocket design) as the previous model. I have had difficulty find this particular design by any other manufacturer as well.

      Comments about Road Runner Roadster Bass Gig Bag:

      Just got this bag about a month ago to replace an old bag I had with a diagonal sling strap. That thing was annoying and I just wanted a bag that would sit on my back properly. This bag has tons of pockets and seems well padded, so that is a positive. However, the straps on the back are horrible. They are located within a pocket flap that only zips up halfway when you want to use the straps. They are also way too short. I extended them to their full length, and I hit the headstock on just about every doorway I pass through. I'm 6 feet tall, so that is ridiculous. I think they just made the straps on the same position they would be on a guitar bag, not accounting for basses being a bit longer. Don't buy this bag.

                  Comments about Road Runner Roadster Bass Gig Bag:

                  The bag itself, while durable, is plagued by extremely weak zipper pulls which have ALL broken off. The bag is six months old and is used only once per week. The bag's minimal usage and the fact that it's handled with kid gloves demonstrates how poorly constructed the hardware is on a bag of this price.

                    Great gig bag. I also have the guitar version. Plenty of padding without being bulky or too heavy. Backpack straps are also great. Plenty of storage too. For the money, this is hard to best,
