If you want a violin case that you can also use as a sled to careen down an icy mountain, this case won't do. If you want one that you can also use as a battering ram to knock down the doors of hardened criminals in your neighborhood.....nope not good for that either. Also, if you are very spoiled, with a false sense of entitlement, and must have the best of everything, including 24 K gold monogrammed initials, you should look elsewhere. (You might also want to see a therapist due to your unrealistic expectations.) However, if you DO want a fabulous case for your fiddle that will do everything, then look no further. I bought the green color. It looks more like teal, very nice. It has a digital thermometer and hygrometer. A nice touch is that the battery has a piece of paper blocking it. When you remove the paper it's activated. So you don't get a unit with a dead battery. The outside pocket has a mesh screen at the left end for putting in small items. The outside pocket is full-length and wide enough for music. There are two inside pockets. My shoulder rest fits easily in the larger pocket. Another nice touch is that the rain flap fasteners are magnetic and are not snaps. Your violin is secured three ways, one with zippers, two with a center latch, and three with the magnetic snaps. My Strad fit perfectly. The fiddle is suspended and the case is very well made. The carrying strap hooks are spring-loaded. There is a tube for those who still use gut strings. The four bow holders are very secure as well. It's very light weight in spite of the great construction, and is slimmer than a lot of oblong cases. What's not to like? Plus, the Fiddleshop was great to deal with as always. I give it my highest recommendation.
