Bummer, was hoping for a more positve report but thanks for the heads up. Guess this is another testimate to good ol MADE IN THE U.S.A. rather than going the wal*mart way and having everything made in the 2nd or 3rd world by slave/convict labor. Maybe some board member who's as handy with a sewingmachine as Deerslayer is with wood will give us a close copy for those of us with WH or plan to take them to renactments and get them filthy dirty.

It looks like the case which I received from IMA - at least he was able to get the snaps open, something I found almost impossible to do. One of the snaps ripped out of the fabric. Mine case is on the way back to IMA.

Quality it is not!

The price from IMA is right if the snaps worked - Its a copy,always will be a copy...

Looks like the 79.00 bag is now up to 153.00 on Ebay. Whatever the market will allow...

If the $650 for the case advertised on Ebay is a stupid price what are the cases normally going for?

I understand that in England some have been available at £425, around $765 U.S. at current exchange rates.

The replacement case arrived. The snaps work and the case looks great. Not an original, but not bad.

I see that the cases are appearing on Ebay - the problem is the case would pass for an original if the buyer has never seen or owned a original case.

I would purchase again
