I am convinced that whoever designed this case never consulted a string player. While the exterior looks sleek and modern, this case fails even the most basic tests. The accessories pouch is too small and short to comfortably fit rosin, ear plugs, a metronome and a pencil. The shoulder rest compartment is too small to accommodate a medium sized standard Mach One. When closed, it's unable to stand on the edge because of the zipper (don't be fooled by the product picture). When it's open, it tilts so that both halves of the case stick up in the air because of the shoulder straps. I would not trust this case to protect my instrument.
