    The original issue Under Cover brand bag ("Denver USA" on the label) is the best unreinforced (all soft materials) gig bag ever made. Cordura covering, 2" of high-density foam on each side, thick pile psuedo-sheepskin on the inside. If I bend mine in half (empty, of course) it immediately springs right back to it's rigid form. I carry a '61 Pbass in one and would not worry if it tumbled down a flight of stairs.

    Dunno when they went out of production, and I believe someone has since revived the name with a lesser product. Every time I am on ebay I search "Under Cover" in musical insts, and have found two in the past ten years. A little rare but undisputably the best.

    As for guitar straps, I go with the above. Comfort, schmumfort; it's gotta look cool!

    I was reading great things about the incase brand soft-cases, but they don't make 'em anymore.

    Then, I was looking at the Access Stage Three bags, but they were as much or more money than the Mono softcases, which seem more rugged, with a water-resistant exterior, and a good neck-yolk.

    PS: I don't have any, yet, I've just done way too much research.
