Any experience with Gewa Air Ergo?

June 13, 2018, 12:46 AM · Looking for opinions about that case. The one supposedly design for bicycle and public transportation. (

It could be useful for me, as I move around in motorcycle and bike. I know well about the disadvantages of thermoplastic or similars vs laminated wood, but in my particular circunstances (muddy roads in a tropical country) it is more convenient. For those who have that Gewa Ergo, I need to know if the headroom is really big enough to allow for the head+helmet to pass through. Also what are the thought about its waterproofness (In this tropical country, real waterproofness is more important than thermic insolation).
Just checking if that case meets my needs or what they offer is just a gimmick...

Thus your back is only "immobilized" along the length of the violin, and not determined by the bow. Might also help with the helmet. The water proofness looks good to me, better than most cases I saw, but I would not want to make promises on that.
