"Don't Buy, it stinks--literally!"

Quality
The quality of the case is good. but it is unusable because of the odor!! I thought that it would go away after a while so I didn't return it. 3 months later, after trying everything, ie. airing out (3 weeks worth) and spray & solid air fresheners, it still smells. It is not something that can be ignored and SKB refuses to honor this problem under warranty, even thought they admit it and have subsequently changed glues!! Since they will not stand behind "defects in materials" as stated in their warranty I would not purchase anything from this company. SKB!
