 Anyone know of a quality case that allows you to leave a shoulder rest on? 

 

Call it lazy but if i have to do it every time i miss out on a 5 min practice opportunity when it arises so if i could leave it on it would be helpful.

 

Also worried about moving and humidity lvl in colorado during summer so ide like to leave it in a humidified case.

At home my violin sits in an open case with the shoulder rest in place.  Since I have an old violin and an old case I too have to remove the shoulder rest to pack it up.

My concern is humidifying it, leaving it open kinda prevents it.

Perhaps you should just raise the humidity of the entire room with an open bottle of water or two. Same thing as the violin case, just a larger example of the same principle.

You can do something like what Uzi said or you can purchase a Dampit

Then you hang it on the wall. Great for spontaneous practice. All of a sudden you have 5 minutes, just grab the fiddle and play. :)
