Case is too heavy

So, the case is fine, but not for its intended purpose. I purchased the case specifically for bicycle commuting and air travel. My main issue is the weight. This case is really heavy. In fact, the empty BAM case is heavier than my oblong case when fully packed with books. As far as protection, I am sure the Peak Performance is solid. The padding is really thick and my violin fits snuggly with no movement whatsoever. The inside pocket is a good size and allows me to bring all my essentials, like my shoulder rest (xl foam), rosin, mute, cleaning rag, etc. The larger outside pocket is a perfect size and is deceptively large. I can comfortably fit all my sheet music, music books, laptop, and a tablet. However, unlike the picture, there is only one large pocket with one zipper, not two. This is not a big deal performance wise. I think the one larger pocket is preferable. There is a smaller pocket above and one on the side for holding knickknacks and there is a mesh pocket for holding a water bottle. It is nice to have all my essentials compactly contained. There is also a bungie strap on the outside of the large pocket which will hold a light jacket. The bow tube is a pretty basic pvc pipe with a screw on cap. It works fine, but is pretty cheap looking considering the price of the case. What I do really like is the bottom of the tube has a safety latch which prevents it from popping out during transit. I also like that I could probably fit one bow and a travel 4 weight fly rod should I want to go to the river. Another issue is it is so top heavy, even when empty, you can't open the case without it falling backward. Unless you have a wall to lean it against it tips over. Again, not a huge deal, but it is annoying. The bag is, overall, really well made. The stitching is solid and everything is well put together. I'm a little surprised it didn't come with a blanket of some sort. The included water bottle is cool, but didn't last long because my niece immediately stole it and is happily using it at school. Basically, this is a well made case, but I will probably rarely use it for it's intended purpose. If you are buying this case purely for the aesthetics and not for commuting, I say "Go for it." However, I regret making this purchase. In the end I feel like I paid $80 for the case and $270 for the BAM patch.

Heavy duty case

First things first: this case is heavy! Much heavier than any of my other cases. That being said, I feel that I could drop the case from a high altitude, with my violin inside, and the violin will survive just fine. The case is so sturdy. The bow tube has two microfiber bow sleeves included, which was a nice surprise. Last, the case I received has only one large front pocket, as opposed to two back-to-back as shown in the picture. I actually prefer the single large pocket, but wanted to point this out if this is important for you. In summary, if you buy this case for protection during travel by plane or train - go for it. If you need it for commute via urban transportation, you may want to get a lighter one.
