    Lightweight Lifesaver With A Unique

    The one "stand alone" unit of my nine Line 6 XD-V receivers permanently occupies its highly protective "wash and wear" (or, more accurately, "sponge down and wear") GM-1WEVA.

    It's become part of a "grab and go" kit, as this bag accommodates the receiver's "companion" THH12 handheld, along with a mic clip, "foamy" urethane windgag, "Koala" ("furry") windsock, USB adapter cable and a short XL connecting cable.

    The XD-V's are the deepest half-rack receivers I've encountered, so mine uses the bag's full length, with its antennae deploying perfectly from behind the sturdy zipper that secures the rear one of Gator's two unique end caps.

    I'd be surprised if there was a half-rack system that could NOT be easily deployed while housed in this rugged little beauty, given that most shorter receivers (such as Audio-Technica, Sennheiser and Shure) either have front panel antennae, (that would extend forward of the front end cap's zipper, ...the opposite of my Line 6) ...or rear-mounted antennae for which Gator have provided a pair of zippered access slots at TWO different depths from the front.

    This means there's a total of FOUR "fold out" spots for chassis-mounted whip antennae.

    The Party Trick ?

    When folded back (as far as they'll go) under the receiver, the end caps form a surprisingly stable "stand" riser that's perfect for operational elevation above a table or rack.

    I have no hesitation in unequivocally recommending this ergonomic and roadworthy mini-masterpiece.

    Nice case, but a bit pricey

    This is the perfect solution for transporting your wireless system as well as quick setup in the field. Works great with our Sennheiser handheld system and AKG lavalier system. The receiver opening is a bit oversize, but extra foam pads are included to shim the sides for a nice fit. For what it is, I expected the price your in the $40's. Quality is very good, and I expect it will last.

    Definitely Expected More...

    Maybe I'm a victim of my own expectations but I was disappointed in the quality of this case. My only previous experience with Gator products was that of a friend who owns a Gator guitar case and is quite happy with it, so I assumed that Gator was the brand to buy for superior gear. One of the things that surprised me was the fact that, even though the case is (supposedly) built specifically for wireless systems, I still had to find places within it to fit all the components of my Sennheiser system.

    I also thought that the product itself would be more durable, especially for the price. I probably could have gotten the same effect by wrapping my gear in bubble wrap and sticking it in a gym bag. In my opinion, this product would be OK for $20-25, but definitely not for $.

    Removeable Covers would be nice

    I like the quality of the case and the pocket you get for a mic but I cannot get past how much of a pain the front and rear covers are. When you unzip them the covers are supposed to fold under but they want to flip up in the closed postiion, making it difficult do adjust whatever you have inside. If they where removable it would be 20x's better.
