    Ironically, I never use the double gig bag for actual gigs - just rehearsal and audition transport.
    Actual gigs get hard cases - too many people, too much alcohol, too much gear in the truck...

    I have several Mono Bags and love them and have been using the double for many years...No issues.

    Does anyone know if the Mono gigbags are waterproof? Would love to have a double gigbag for my two Sadowsky basses but with Central Texa weather being what it is I’m concerned about rain.

    I wouldn't be concerned about them being exposed to rain on a walk from the car to the venue.
    But I also wouldn't trust mine to withstand continued exposure to soaking rain or being left in a puddle - fabric and zippers have their limits...

    When a watch capable of withstanding immersion to 100 meters must be described as 'water-resistant,' 'water proof' is quite a high bar.
    An ATA case such as a Hardigg, SKB, or Pelican with pressure-equalizing O-ring seals is probably as "highly water resistant" as you're likely to see.
    There are some very new polymer double road cases that are getting good reviews but I've never seen one in person.
    Anything with that level of protection is likely to be heavy and expensive...

    We get heavy rains here in PA, and I'm not worried about the contents of any of my Mono cases getting harmed during 'reasonable' exposure.

    I can attest to the fact that Mono cases are very resistant to water. I’ve been caught in the open during a torrential downpour with my Vertigo for 20 minutes. I was soaked to the skin, but no water got into the bag at all. I wouldn’t toss my Vertigo in a swimming pool, but as far as rain goes I wouldn’t worry.
