I have seen these military style acoustic cases online at SKB.

They look good.Anyone got one or seen one live?

That looks interesting. I like the idea of the wheels. If I have to carry a heavy case very far it messes up my hands and I can't play very well. The basic idea is similar to those gray thermo-plastic cases Martin uses but with a rectangle outline. I wonder how heavy?

I believe it is 20lbs. That is pretty hefty.

I would like to know what crush tests it has had.

I can't find that info.

I seem to recall Acoustic Guitar magazine did crush tests on a number of travel cases a while back. I don't recall if this one was included. Are you planning to carry your guitar on airline travel? For what its worth, I take an acoustic with me on just about every business trip I take. I travel on average 3 or 4 times a month and always carry it on. Have used several soft cases but been using a Reunion Blues soft case for the past several years. Never had a problem and frankly don't even worry about it anymore. I usually bring my J45 TV with me since its the lightest but have carried others aw well!

I think these are fairly new product, so I haven't seen a review yet. Amazon had the desert tan ones for $100 less than the black version ($199 vs $299) a few months ago.

these have been popping up in the Guitar Player adds (what in Guitar Player isn't an add?) recently,

 

Kinda looks like you could hit em with a nuke, and the axe would be fine.
