Review: Gator “PROGO” Gig Bag Line (by Eric Lacovara)
Protecting your investment is one of the best ways to keep your instrument in top playing condition. Whether you casually take your instrument to a friend’s house, take weekly lessons or are a gigging musician, you can go worry-free with the new ‘PROGO’ series from Gator.
The new PROGO bag line offers thick padding flanked in micro-fleece to give each model a more rigid feel than a standard gig bag. This solid feel is the first thing you will notice when checking out this series of gig bags.
Plenty of carry handles with adjustable and removable backpack straps make transporting your instrument a breeze. The rugged nylon exterior is perfect for keeping your instrument safe in all types of weather conditions (and each PROGO model offers a protective rain cover to keep your gig bag in top shape). You will notice that Gator used heavy duty zippers when constructing these bags along with solid carabiner latches to keep the quality high.
Stability is also another game changer with the PROGO series – with a padded neck support and body blocker shock absorber, your instrument rests comfortably inside each PROGO when on the go!
With a tablet pocket, internal cable management and ample sheet music pocket, this PROGO series has become a favorite here at George’s Music. Check out the accompanying video below from Gator as they put this series of gig bags thru a battery of tests!
