The Urban Guitar bags have been created for the gigging musician, who demands excellent protection for their instrument and needs to carry additional gear to a gig. The bags are lightweight and portable and incorporate the “Fuse-On” system, whereby a separate range of accessory bags, fit quickly and easily onto the front of the guitar bag. The padded “Fuse-on” bags have been specifically designed to carry and protect laptops, electrical leads, foot pedals and a host of personal items. Clever on the inside, tough on the outside On the inside there is a lightweight high-density foam padding with shell-reinforced areas, giving added protection to delicate parts of your guitar. Rip-stop, water resistant non PVC backed material and a heavy-duty rubberized base takes care of everything on the outside. Useful features There are many versatile features to these bags such as a rear compartment to store backpack straps, so the bag can be carried by hand without the straps hanging down and getting in the way. Inside the bag is a removable padded collar, which allows various models and sizes of guitars to be carried. It can also be moulded around the shape of the guitar to give ultimate protection and create space for smaller items to be stored, such as strings and tuners. There is a waist belt for comfort, convenient grab handles when maneuvering in tight spaces and numerous pockets for accessories. Plenty of storage If these pockets do not provide enough space for you, then simply “Fuse-On” by attaching up to two padded accessory bags onto the base and headstock area of your bag. The larger of these bags, the Laptop Backpack, even holds a 15” laptop and all the essentials you need on a trip.

This Fusion bag is really well-made and should be tremendously useful for some people, but it ultimately was not the solution I was hoping it would be. The bulk of the bag helps make it very protective of the contents, but it was unwieldy for me when navigating the commute. Compared to the weight of a standard gig bag, this bag probably tripled the weight I was carrying, at least, even after considering that I could wear both shoulder straps instead of just one, and even if I was only carrying one bass in the bag. (I haven't weighed everything out, but it feels at least tripled.) The extra weight slowed down my walking speed, and the extra overall bulk made navigating the trains themselves and certain parts of the train station more difficult. In fact, on certain trains I had to take the bag off before entering the train because the ceiling inside that particular train model is too low. And perhaps most importantly, if the Fuse-on bag was attached, the bag wouldn't fit in the overhead racks, meaning I had to take up a 2nd seat just for my bag. I didn't run into a problem doing that, but if I had run into a stickler train conductor, they could have charged me extra fare. And if the train were crowded enough, which could happen when equipment problems force cancelled trains or a car shortage, I could have been forced to stand. Of course, I could remove the Fuse-on to fit it overhead, but removing and reattaching the bag twice a day for only a 35-minute train ride is more trouble than it's worth. Ultimately, I've found that navigating my commute with a regular backpack and a standard gig bag as two separate items is much easier. Another minor problem I had was that I struggled fitting one of my basses (2001 Carvin LB75P) in the bag when using the "suspended neck" padding configuration suggested in example photos. I did eventually make it work, but you may need to put less padding under the body of your bass to get it to fit if it's particularly long.
Of course, my use case won't be the same as someone else's. I imagine this bag is ideal for people who live on the road, take longer train/bus/plane rides routinely, do a lot of walking/biking with their gear and can handle the weight, and/or are naturally clumsy and need the extra protection for their gear. But for me, it's ultimately too much. I'm still deciding what to do with it - I think it could still be useful for going to practices and gigs, but I'm not really gigging right now, so I don't have an immediate need for it now that I've found it impractical for my specific commute. I find returns to be kind of a pain, so I may just hold onto it, or maybe sell it locally. It's a shame, because I think it's a good product. It just doesn't meet my particular needs the way I thought it would.
-Sturdy, offers strong protection
-Thoughtful features, such as zippers with built-in slots for adding locks
-Innovative design (Fuse-on system, modular internal padding) adds versatility to fit a lot of different use cases
-Bulkiness makes maneuvering some spaces difficult
-With the extra protection comes a lot of extra weight vs. regular gig bags
-May not fit in spaces you'd be counting on it to fit, such as overhead racks
-Pricey (but at least you're getting a quality product - you get what you pay for)
-May struggle to fit certain basses if you want to fully surround the body with the modular internal padding
Obviously, protection is the primary concern. When loaded up with my 2 main guitars, we're talking over $2k worth of instruments. (yes, $2k gear/$500 car/$50 gig joke applies hear). Of course I use common sense when this bag goes in the band trailer. It's strapped on top of my amp cabs and where there's no danger of it crushed even if it were to come loose.
The storage options are great. 3 pockets up front, 1 up high in the front towards the head stock, and a document sleeve in the back. It's actually too easy to overload the bag given all the storage space it offers.
The guitar storage areas can be adjusted to a specific instrument. I love that. When I'm only hauling around one guitar, I move the padding around to make shelves and divider sections like one of the product feature pictures shows. That is so cool.
I wouldn't call the bag the most comfortable thing when fully loaded. But I'm not commuting public transit across town with it either. I mean, I do have that $500 car. The shoulder padding is sufficient so far. I haven't used the waist belt or the chest strap in real world use other than when I first got the bag and tested those features.
I absolutely love that there are little slots in front and back you can slide your hands in to maneuver with. A lot of gig bags don't have anything other than the side handle and the shoulder straps, so trying to handle the bag under load while putting it on or removing can be a chore. But not this bag.
The rain fly is total bonus. I never thought I'd need it but apparently I did. My drummer had me put the bag in the back of his truck . It rolled into some snow back there. Where the rain fly was in the pocket stayed dry. Had I been thinking, I would have actually applied the fly correctly. So suffice it to say, the bag isn't water proof. No damage other than my music not book getting wet.
I know all of the youtubers swear by their mono bags, but I swear by this bag. It is pricey, but it's been so worth it even though it's almost worth more than my $500 car. A couple of more $50 gigs and it's paid for itself.
I have been very pleased so far using it to carry EVH, PRS, Fender without any worries! All the pockets are very good too. I can easily fit my wireless transmitter, that stays on my strap into one of the zippered pockets.
The neck support and secure is great! You can reposition the inner body support for different shapes.
The one thing I will say is the main zipper is a little hard to zip open and closed. So time will tell on that.
Other than that I an very happy with this purchase!!!
