I check this deal of the day site and thought I'd share the link,

Note that it's only the fabric that is "luggage grade" (and "waterproof"), not the case as a whole. (That is, you don't want it going with your checked luggage at the airport.) It's just a padded gig bag and, thus, is not crush proof.

That said, it does look like a pretty good one, as gig bags go.

A Web search reveals that Stone Case Co. makes five different grades of water-resistant gig bags, differing in quality of materials, thickness of padding, and number/type of pockets & straps. They range from Series 5 with no padding up to Series 1 with 50mm padding, 800-denier "tour-grade" fabric and multiple pockets.

The bag in the deal (btw. . .soprano, concert and tenor available) is their Series 2 case, which is their second-best gig bag. It has 16mm padding and 600-denier fabric. (Actually, it looks like they don't even make a uke version of Series 1, 3, or 5, so the Series 2 is probably as good as it gets from them for non-rigid ukulele protection.)
