The drum bags that fail first and most often are the bags that fit the tightest... for obvious reasons. Tight fitting bags also provide the least protection.
How can you guarantee a loose fitting bag? Order 1 size over.
That's not a bad idea as well. Some if my bags are a fairly tight fit. Others have some play, mostly the ones with the correct sizing, but made for rims mounts, (i don't have rims). For the loser bags, the drums slide right in with no fuss. My bass drums have a little room too.
