Re: How do you pack your kit?
I was using those Humes & Berg Enduro hard cases exclusively for the last decade since I drove around in an open ford pickup most of the time, and I still do. But for my last kit, I got those Ahead armor bags and they're great. I really like the construction - in fact, they're not too different from Protection Racket bags. Ahead says they're waterproof to a degree, but I haven't gotten a chance to test that yet. I recommend these bags to everybody, they're really nice. I got the Ahead cymbal bag as well and that's a great cymbal bag - it's effectively replaced my Reunion Blues solid leather bag that I had for the last 30 years!
