    Just looking at the picture, I don't like the lid padding putting pressure on the bridge. Should be over the neck and tailpiece only.

    Actually Don, if you make the picture larger what looks like it puts pressure on the bridge is in reality a depression so it doesn't add pressure to the bridge.

    I have the faux smooth brown leather one. It looks great, but the lid is slightly warped. It's OK for less expensive mandolins, but I'd go for something sturdier if you've got a pricier instrument.

    I have some of their guitar cases and they are decent. Don't let that vintage tag lull you into thinking you can throw an early Gibson A style in there. It looks like the headstock would be laying on the pick case.

    There's a thread here from a while back discussing these. Found it, they were discussing the fiberglass model.

    It's a nice looking case with shoulder strap/backpack straps. My concern would be the fit. 10.8" wide inside is going to leave a lot of flopping around space for most mandolins.
