I just got a Mono M-80 and I think I may never buy another bag again.
I have had the same gig bag for 19 years (Sam Ash pro "fur lined") which at the time (1994) retailed at around $115 and just recently it got a hole in the bottom I stuffed some foam in it and it is just fine, but it is not water proof and it goes not hold everything I need.
I figured it was time to get a new bag and after doing extensive research and thanks to a 20 dollar discount from Musician's friend I went with the Mono. If it last another 19 years I will be happy plus it's water-proof and has the neck rest thingy that is awesome and plenty of room for all sorts of gadgets. I think the price is fair for something of that quality. I know people that say it is better their hard case.
