    "Solid Storage - with a catch..."
    Pros - well cushioned, solid piano hinge, rugged case
    Cons - plastic latch for the case fractures easily
    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.
     
    I had bought them from Sweetwater and they replaced both of them for free (even sent them 2-day FedEx for free) and one has already cracked again. The cases do not see what I would describe as a "brutal" environment - my work backpack that I use every day and for air travel. Needless to say, if they could ever resolve the breaking closure, I would probably buy a few more of these but until then, they suck at ANY price.
