Strong padded hard ware bags, zips are very robust. Have been using the same bags for the last 5 years. Comes with 2 carry handles with Velcro fastenings, and shoulder strap. For the hardware that comes with a standard 5 piece kit, you would really need 2 of these. Side pocket aswell for smaller items, cowbells, etc
This is a good, long, capacious bag, although if you filled it up completely you wouldn't be able to lift it (certainly not with drum hardware). However, if you divide your kit up carefully, you'll find this bag very good for those extra long items. I can also get things like microphone boom stands in. The material is soft but very well padded with a sturdy handle. The top flap opens fully with full length zips along each side. There's a long zip pocket on the side and some kind of stiff material in the base. Smart enough to use as holiday luggage.
