BAM is listed at 15lbs on Savage Classical Guitar, but at 6.8 lbs on its own website... ? It does cost less than Visesnut, also considered very good. No idea if they have their own case cover, which no doubt would add to the weight. With any case like this I think a cover is a good idea.
BAM does make a "Flight Cover" which weighs an additional 9 lbs.
(Thanks for pointing out my mistake about the weight of the Visesnut.)
Visesnut, BAM and Hiscox are all good cases, probably with their own strengths and weaknesses. Most of us have limited experience of different cases and tend to stick with what we know and what works for us in our specific circumstances. However I came across this interesting video on YouTube where a guitar maker (mostly non-classical) compares Visesnut, BAM and Hiscox cases, hands on, in his workshop.
I'm not saying one should take his views as gospel - but the video is well worth viewing.
(I hope non UK members don't have too much trouble with the Geordie accent!)
