When I first started gigging and having to move around lots of equipment I had the fortune of having some good hardcases and a great borrowed kit. After shifting to a more road-oriented setup for my drums and having to keep things under budget, I decided to switch to these bags to lug my kit around. Simply put: you can't beat these bags for the price.
I use this bag and others from the series for almost all of my drums. The padding is sufficient and the zippers don't lock up. All around just a good little transportation solution. They're also quite stable when stacked, and there's enough slack room inside store them inside each other when space is tight.
Happy buyer here.
