Does any one own or have any thoughts about the Protec Alto triple case? I'm concerned where the the flute and clarinet cases are located and wanted some thoughts (reassurance to be honest)

never carry multiple instruments in one case...for obvious reasons.

It looks like Protec took a regular airline overhead size suitcase with wheels and added a pocket on the front and back for their trim-line flute and clarinet cases. But it looks like the main sax-part has to lay on the flute case, or while the flute case is removed, while opening it to get the sax out. If that's true, it kind'a bothers me. I much better like the old Selmer tri-pack if I needed to go that way.

Thanks Enviroguy. Those were my thoughts as well.

I had this case but got rid of it pretty quickly. You have to take the flute out to lay it flat to open the case...and I made the mistake of opening the case with the clarinet still in the top pocket. The weight of the clarinet on the open lid of the case pulled the screws out and the case didn't open or close right any more. Not really a functional case in my opinion, FWIW.
