Sure thing. I wrote one here: http://www.govisithawaii.com/2013/01/07/ukulele-beginners-guide-playing-new-uke/

lunarfossil said: Hi! I apologize if you've already been asked this before, but I just recently got a Cordoba Concert ukulele... it came with a soft case, but I want to get a nice case for traveling as I backpack. I found one that costs upwards of $130 and is specifically made for travel and getting banged around, but that's ridiculous considering I paid $80 for the uke, tuner, and case. Do you have any recommendations? It would *REALLY* help me out! Thanks so much!! I appreciate your time <3 (:

You can get hard cases for a lot less:

This is good enough for most protection uses: http://www.amazon.com/Gearlux-Concert-Ukulele-Hardshell-Case/dp/B009MBNDUC/

This is a true hardshell: http://www.amazon.com/Oscar-Schmidt-Washburn-UC3-Hardshell/dp/B001ROZT8G/

What I do is use a Dakine Skateboard back pack and just use the skateboard straps to strap a softshell ukulele case to the back. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004X52QSW/

I hope that helps!
