The Rider backpack is designed to fit none other than the Rider steel string. Perfect for travelling and hiking, this ultralight pack is custom made in the USA out of top quality, water resistant rip-stop nylon. This top loader features a cinch cord and neck compression strap to secure the instrument as well as key padding where it counts including the headstock, body and base. Plush backpack straps plus sternum strap, a large pocket, and a couple of D-rings round out this perfect travel companion to our Rider 1/2 acoustic. At one pound this might be the lightest instrument case on the market (and no a cotton sack doesn't count!) and you might just find yourself using it without your guitar as well!
