@merlin have you ever had to check your Larrivee in the luggage hold in the Mono, or do you always take it in the cabin with you?
I don't see this type of gig bag as a fool-proof replacement for a flight case, just a good lighter and less bulky alternative to, let's say a Hiscox case.TBH I wouldn't put all of my trust in any hard case to protect a cherished instrument from the rigorous care and attentions of the worldwide baggage handling community.
