Gator Pro Go series appears to still be current - every unit in this line seems to have backpack straps. I've owned one for a while and find it well built and useful so far.

 

Fusion also seems to offer backpack straps on most of their bags (although I've never used or seen one).

 

Looks like quite a few of the manufacturer branded bags (Yamaha, Korg) have backpack straps for their smaller units as well.

I read really good things about the Fusion bags, and in fact the 49-key is a perfect size for my 61-key Summit. Right now they don't seem as available as they were a month ago.

 

The other I was considering is the Gator pro-go, they seem pretty comparable as far as thickness and quality.

 

I have an older skb rotomolded case and in the end I decided to just use it even though it's too big.

 

I've had several gig bags with backpack straps and for whatever reason don't use them much. I end up either using my cart for long hauls or just the handles for shorter ones. I'm wary of keyboards banging on stuff when they are on my back I guess.

Thanks guys, I will check out those suggestions - not sure how we'll go in Oz, but fingers crossed :)

This topic doesn't strike me as OT at all.

 

Yeah I was a bit undecided really, but as it was carry bags and not specifically keys, I thought mebbe a tad off centre?

Yamaha makes a couple of backpack bags for the MX49 and MX61

Also - in an odd twist of fate, gun/rifle bags are generally around the right size to fit 49 and 61 key keyboards. Worth shopping around to see if one will fit your keyboard.

good tip re gun bags, would NEVER have thought of that.

 

And afaik, the yammie bags have no shoulder straps for carrying backpack style

Thomann ships globally, why I recommeded them

 

 

but the cost of shipping...yikes! I think they're like USPS, once they realised just how much was going to Oz (especially when our dollar was on parity) they jacked the prices a LOT!

Just bought a Hammond SK1. Gotta a deal on it for the same price included a back pack style bag. Made specifically for the SK1 by Hammond.

this. I have one and have used it for taking my SK1 in to festivals and the backstraps are worth their weight in gold when it's a long walk. I also recently picked up a Yamaha MODX7 bag for my Vox, well made, maybe not quite up there with the mono case but close enough. Yamaha does a YC61 bag but the mono bag is cheaper and at east as well made.

Keys: Hammond SK2, Hammond SK1, Hammond SKpro, Korg Vox Continental, Waldorf STVC

Amplification: Line6 L3T, Yamaha DBR-10, Presonus Air 10, Leslie 122V

Au contraire mon frere, the yammie bags do have 'adjustable backpack straps'. Check out the pics on Sweetwater.

My Modx7 bag does have shoulder straps, but it's a bit awkward using them because the keyboard is a longer one being a 7.

 

I don't like the bag though and wish I'd bought a thicker one like the gator or Fusion ones. The Yamaha sides are thin to the point where the bag doesn't hold itself up. By way of contrast, the Nord gig bag I had (which isn't even as thick as the ones I mentioned) would hold shape on its own and was a better quality bag than the Yamaha.

 

Another factor I wish I'd considered--the Modx has a touch screen and it would have been nice if the pocket was centered and over the touch screen--instead it's small and only on one end of the keyboard (?). The pocket could have been a bit of extra protection.

Cool, mon ami, not sure how, but I missed the detail on that pic. Was looking on my phone with no glasses in my defence :D

Anybody know if the Pro-Go 88 Key bag would fit a MOXF? The interior dimensions on the Gator site say 57"x18"x6.25" and the MOXF is 52"x16"x6.6". Would that extra .35" on the MOXF depth be enough that this case wouldn't fit? Anyone have experience with the reliability/weight tolerance of the backpack straps as well? I heard they were attached to the bag with velcro which to me seems somewhat questionable.
