Very solid case, and thoughtfully designed! There were few good pictures of the outside of this case online, so I was pleased to see that the cordura has an unexpectedly nice color and sheen to it. Flaps protect the zippers, but these get in the way of opening and closing the case quickly (just more stuff to fiddle with while you reach for the zippers or the latch). The back pack straps are incredibly heavy duty. FYI, Note that the handle is hard plastic, and the straps to tie one's instrument are vinyl, not leather. The storage compartment is roomy. Moreover, when I slid down the adjustable inner compartment to fit a 15.5" viola, I ended up with a bonus storage compartment at the end of the case. So lots of storage space. If there was anything that could be improved, I'd ask for plush fur lining instead of the no-nonsense fabric they used. Also, my viola still wiggles around side to side, despite adjusting the interior compartment size. Thus, I stuff a piece of fabric in to prevent it from wiggling. If they provided a soft cushion that matches the interior fabric that would have been nice.
