I purchased 2 Feldherr Maxi Bags, 1 'off the shelf' configuration and 1 with customisable foam options.
Firstly for anyone in doubt about the quality of the cases they are superb, the finish is excellent, both cases are lined in both the main compartment and the front compartment and a firm plastic rib is hidden inside the lining on both the feet side and carry handle side for extra stability. The outer is made of a resilient cordura type material and the handle is comfortable and sturdy, the carry strap feels strong enough to take a decent load but I wouldn't expect anyone to be carrying more than 5kg in a single case. The front pocket is large enough to take all your books and templates and take 20 or so dice in a pouch.
The foam its self is amazingly soft to the touch which is great for saving on abrasion but not in the sense that is breaks its shape too easily. There are loads of options so its worth planning your case but with the different sizes of Rasta foam most eventuality's can be covered, the trays themselves come either self adhesive or not, I had a mix because of the trays I wanted and found PVA to be more than adequate for bonding but found the self adhesive great. A note on planning try and think about different options for storing, conventionally we lay everything down but I purchased some deep trays and stand my models up in them, the foam ensures no damage but these are not cases to be abused and should be handled with respect.
Overall these cases are great lightweight transport options and at an affordable price, I handle my cases like my models and that puts me firmly in the Feldherr camp.
