Thanks.

Fusion makes a really great one if you can find them...easier in Europe than the U.S.

Thanks. Are there any that are easy to find in the US?

I have one of those ubiquitous hard foam cases, concert size. It came with two straps and loops to attach them. Actually very comfortable to wear backpack style.

We've gotten basic gig bags from Mike (hoosierhiver) at Mainland Ukuleles and heavy-duty gig bags from MusicGuyMic (MGM). They all have backpacks straps and both Mikes are great to buy from.

Asfab Music in Pasadena California is apparently the only U.S. distributor of Fusion gig bags. Here's the website.

It requests that anyone interested in buying a Fusion gig bag send an email to nick@asfabmusic.com. I'm about to email Asfab Music and I'll post in this thread any information I get.

No, we got gig bags, not hard cases.

The best backpack gig bag IMHO is the Steady line.http://www.steady-case.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=154&osCsid=f379da25d99b2b3c2723a4b234661c13
It might be a little larger than the Ohana case but is way sturdier. Its a cross between a hardcase and gig bag.
If you get a lighter gig bag make sure the foam is the 20mm thickness and not the 10mm thick ones. http://cgi.ebay.com/TENOR-DELUXE-Gigbag-w-straps-20MM-padding-Blk-/250345369116?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a49bf2e1c
