I purchased the bag on 2/15/2018, it arrived promptly and I set it aside. Today, Jan 12, 2019 I used it for the first time. It is well made and padded, my dulcimer fits nicely. It has a storage pocket on the front to store the hammers and other accessories but the zipper is missing the metal part or tab that is used to open/close the pocket. There is no way to open the storage pocket. Fortunately my wife is an expert seamstress and will fix it for me. Should you purchase this bag check the zippers immediately.
