We ordered this case, because we wanted something less bulky that would still afford good protection to my daughter's trumpet, once she started travelling to secondary school by bus. We are very pleased with the case, which looks as if it will protect her trumpet well and she loves the colour. Time will tell how strong it is. Only downsides were that we would have preferred it without the detachable music case, which is very small and increases the overall bulk of the case. Also the amount of adjustment on the rucksack straps is limited (so they are slightly too long for an 11 year old) and they cannot be removed altogether as on some cases - which would have further removed the bulk of the case.
