The Steady Bag is my first choice for a gig bag. Some might think it too rigid for this purpose but it works for me. It turns into full back pack mode and can fit any tenor around due to the adjustable pad on the interior. Top quality throughout with heavy duty zippers and cordura. Wherever I take mine people want to know where I got it.


Second choice. Padding not as thick but 20mm will allow the bag to hold its form without bending over. I think it also converts to back pack but I am not 100% certain on that.

you should just get the uke crazy case. it has great protection for the uke and a built in hygrometer (humidity level gauge)

Aloha RawrGazzawrs,
The best for me, but it's a case not a gig bag is the Oscar Schmidt Case which has thick plush inside and a thick solid vinyl outside.
I got mine from Musician's friend...better than mostly all out there and for the price..I paid $59.00 for mine.. Check it out!! MM Stan...

Check out the Fusion gig bags, I bought one and the padding is decent. The larger bags can also carry two ukes. I bought a concert size and it can fit a concert and a soprano very snug though.
