The roomier interior of the C-2020 is the first obvious departure from the C-2019. Despite being only roughly twice the size of the original in width, it feels even bigger. The main compartment has two sections separated by two removable Velcro-attached dividers. Each divider has a flat padded flap that lets you cover whatever it is you’re putting in the case, and unlike the original case, the dividers are now long enough to hold fast to the Velcro sides without coming loose.
The main section has two elastic straps that help keep your mobile player secure, and stops items from bouncing around in the case. Without a hard divider, the main compartment allows you to keep larger items in place, although the firm placement of the elastic straps does limit your options somewhat.
The lid of the main compartment has two large mesh pockets for keeping cables, papers, cards and other non-bulky accessories. If your accessories do protrude slightly and press onto the main items when the lid is closed, the flaps of the separators should keep everything safe from bumps and scratches. Good design all-round.
Flip the case over and you’ll find another zippered section, this one fairly shallow and clearly only intended for cables and other flat accessories. The main compartment has four elastic straps for keeping cables and other bulkier items in place, while the lid had three mesh pockets and seven smaller subdivided fabric pockets for cards, adapters and other small accessories (like DD’s audio adapters, for example).
