“ This a relatively solid case, well cushioned, good sized and very functional. Given that - I am at a complete loss as to why the closure is so poorly made. I bought 2 of these and within 60 days BOTH case latches developed a lateral crack running along the clasp left to right - in one instance it broke off completely.
