Who Makes The Best Concertina Cases?

Though not small, the Nanuk 918 has room for foam and blocking.  

Plus  a pack of sandwiches and a beer!

 

Actually, I am not knocking the 918 as I am thinking of getting one myself.  It seems to be the only bullet-proof case than can hold a concertina bigger than 6 1/4".  But it is really wide at nearly 17" externally.  You would need a big backpack!

 

If the OP's concertina is a standard 6 1/4" then a Nanuk 908 or a Pelican/Storm iM2075 would keep your precious safe.

 

Added:  One problem with these types of cases is that they are often used for high-end camera gear and might be a magnet for thieves.  The OP might be better off with a battered, old-fashioned hard shell ladies make-up case.

Take a look at the Nanuks.  Similar to Storm/Pelican but slightly different dimensions and a tad lighter.

 

surprisingly, the Nanuk 908 has turned out to be slightly smaller than the Pelican im2075 re internal dimensions (I was able to fit a TT Aeola only into the latter)

I would recommend https://www.skbcases.com/industrial/products/prod-detail.php?d=s17&id=1092&s=s#.X4Rx1NAzbtQ, it's "only" 16 1/4 inches and seems quite reliable too. Acquired for my Lachenal baritone in the first place the case now houses my BT Aeola (which also benefits from 0.4 inches extra internal depth; 9.00 vs. 8.60).

Interior Length:  15.00 in  (38.10 cm)
