The case does the job, it is light & give reasonable protection to the OTA assembly, much easier to carry & handle than the hard carry cases (not to mention cheaper). The case does not looks like in the picture (cylindrical shape) but has a clam shell shape which is great - the fork arm stand straight in the case
I disagree with the user that said this bag was not padded. It has high density padding stitched into the walls of the bag. If the padding was any thicker the bag would be too bulky. I feel it is a very well built bag with lots of space for accessories. However, please note that if you have a moonlight focuser attached it will not fit in the bag. My problem with the bag is zippers that jammed on me and for months I could not close the bag properly till I managed to unjam the zipper. The zipper was not snagged on any fabric. It simply jammed. Maybe I was just unlucky with mine. If the zipper hadn't jammed, I would have given this product 5 stars
Very good service and excellent bag.
