    Orange County, California (March 3rd, 2021) – Now available for preorder from Gruv Gear is the new Kapsulite bass guitar bag, a lighter version of its popular Kapsule travel bass guitar cases. At 33% lighter, Kapsulite has been meticulously designed and engineered with new robust materials to significantly reduce the weight of the case while maintaining top-notch protection and portability for your instrument.

    For more than a decade, Gruv Gear products have set the benchmark in design, ease of use, and gear protection for gigging and traveling musicians for a range of musical instruments.

    Guitarists and bassists already fell in love with the original Kapsule as the ultimate check-in friendly, rolling travel case,” shares Jay Baldemor, President of Gruv Gear. “The Kapsulite is a lighter, softer option for in-town and fly gigs alike, where you’ll want to wear it comfortably on your back most of the time. We used a semi-soft shell on the Kapsulite and even reimagined where the shoulder straps are typically attached, creating a seamless look whether you’re in trains, planes, or simply walking into the studio.

    Gruv Gear’s DNA is embedded in the new guitar/bass case, with key features such as a revolutionary waterproof exo-shell, fused with a thick layer of lightweight expanded polystyrene for excellent shock absorption. The interior is lined with soft fabric, and the instrument headstock is suspended and secured for traveling by a specially molded neck brace, which also functions as a removable storage case for cables, strings, capos, tools, tuners and much more. The main panel of the Kapsulite features top-to-bottom pocket areas to maximize storage while keeping a slim profile.

    The unique placement of the wide padded shoulder straps on the main lid creates a sleek & minimalist look when worn. When not in use, the straps can be tucked away into a zippered compartment. The built-in lost-and-found Global Recovery Tag feature, recognized in nearly 3,000 airports worldwide, offers security and peace of mind.

    Gruv Gear’s mantra has always been to “Make Life Gruv” which translates to making travel, playing, and working life easier, smoother, and more enjoyable for creatives. Kapsulite delivers on this mantra 100% and adds yet another practical and innovative option to Gruv Gear’s already impressive line of bags and cases. Kapsulite will be available in three sizes: Electric guitar, Electric bass, and Acoustic guitar. For preorder info, or to learn more about the Kapsulite and all Gruv Gear’s other travel-smart products please go to gruvgear.com

    Wow. That looks like a major cool new product. Combines the elements of several types of gig bags.. and the rollers are great. If I were going to be traveling - I'd buy one of these, like right now.

    Oh man that is pretty cool. I have the first model and got a screaming deal on it because I was an early bird first kickstarter backer. This one looks nice but I like the look of the shiny hard outer shell on the original one.

    Looks highly protective!

    Physically, pretty big. I find my Mono Vertigos already pretty big.

    Looks sharp, although a bit like a car cargo box (roof rack).

    It doesn't seem like one could take the instrument in/out of the case vertically. Is that the case? (pun intended). This is absolutely a critical feature for me...laying down a case on a tiny stage or the floor of our rehearsal space is a major PITA. Hence the Vertigos.

    Probably shouldn't show guitars in an ad aimed at bass players. o_O

    Based on the form factor and ad verbiage, I'm guessing this is aimed at traveling musicians instead of local yocals like me (home, car, gig, car, home). Looks like a great product for airports, trains et al.
