    Figured out a use for the backpack strap pouch, which has a thin layer of foam padding on the inside: removed the zipper, rolled it up, and placed it in the peghead area for some additional support to keep the scroll away from the interior surface.

    Hi folks, although this thread is not very old I am wondering if anyone has ordered one recently and if so, what you received. There appears to be many iterations of this case floating around- 3 latche's, 5 latches; two handles, one handle; will stand on edge, won't stand on edge, etc.
    Just wondering what is being shipped at this time, thanks

    I think if I were in the market for a midrange mando case that's backstrapable, I'd consider spending a little more and get a more consistent and dependable product. A case that you have to stuff extra foam or rags into to secure the instrument would concern me. It's instrument shift in a case during tumbles that causes a lot of damage. The Northfield Airloom Recurve secures the instrument at the tailpiece and the neck and fits the mandolin without cramming extra loose stuff in. German engineering and production.

    I got one about 2 months ago via Amazon, 4 latches, 2 handles. It will stand on the side edge, though due to how narrow the footprint is, it can tip easily if bumped, but it hasn't concerned me. Overall, I'm happy with the case for the price.

    When I came of age in the '70s, seems color was having a new heyday, especially what they called "Earth tones" and "jewel tones." Nowadays, the proportion of products made in black astound. Know I'm a geezer, but "back in the day" black was what funeral directors and mourners wore. Nothing wrong with black, but leave out black, gray, and white cars and see what how little selection is left. This applies to summer music camps on campuses, where you see a sea of black cases stacked in the dining hall.

    I'm now having a mandolin made for me, and ordered my own case, a Crossrock fiberglass beauty in ... yellow! Let the sun shine in!

    Howdy Glassweb,
    Who or what web site had those Crossrock mando cases for that price ?
    I bought 2 of those cases a few yrs ago for a little less than you price but that's still a good / fair price.
    They are great fiber glass cases. I have 1 superior case that my recent find purchase of my Pava A5 pro came in. Those are nice cases
    but I like the Crossrock better more room inside etc.
    Thanks

    Amazon has the black fiberglass case at $239 and other colors at $249. Their prices seem to fluctuate randomly, often by color.

    With all of my A's and F's with the tone guard on they fit in the Crossrock fiber glass cases.
    My Pava A5 Pro with a tone guard will fit in a white superior case.
    I live in the sunny south around Gulf Shores most of cases are white or silver as to reflect the sun and heat.
    A few times I have left a mandolin in a hot vehicle and the sun beating down on a white case.
    Expecting the worse I have opened the case to a cool un harmed mando.

    that's really impressive... does your white case have 4 latches or five? and does it have the 4 rubber bumpers on the "sitting upright side" so it can stand upright?

    the only issue I have with my Crossrock case is that does not safely stand upright on its side. Crossrock assured me they were going to address this problem but I don't know if they have. other than that issue I still love the case and believe it is a great case for the money...

    I was recently thinking of a crossrock case and contacted the crossrock company via email. They were very accommodating answering all my questions and were working on a deal for me of $219 shipped but I bought a different case so never followed through

    To clarify further, I asked the rep the questions of latches, handles and its ability to stand on its edge, her response follows:

    "It has 5 latches and two strap handles (side and top).
    It will stand on it's side edge.

    But All CRF1000MAF fiberglass mandolin case has been out of stock now.
    The new stock will be available by the end of Aug 2021."

    The reason I contacted them was to check on these issues and I had seen someplace on Amazon an ad for $219 with free delivery, I wanted to see if they would honor that!

    She was very responsive, responded to all emails within 12 hrs which surprised me.

    Got an amazon email saying they had them back in stock. I bought a white crossrock fiberglass case. So far it has exceeded my expectations. Really well designed. Someone had mentioned that the case will not stand up on its side but that isn't true. It has rubber feet on 3 out of 6 sides (bottom, back, and horizontal side opposite the handle) The case is lightweight and all of the latches are good quality. The straps are nice because you can wear it as a backpack or take one off and wear it on one shoulder. Hope this is helpful for someone.
