Default Ahead Armor Drum Bags

So, regarding these new bags, has anybody found out if they're really waterproof like they advertise? Cruising around in a open pick-up with your gear I've discovered I don't necessarily need hardcases, but if should it rain while in inclement weather, it would be good to have a nice bag that is waterproof. Anybody buy any?

I use the Armor bags on my toms w/RIMS, the teardrop design is a real timesaver unpacking and packing again. They're really nice bags for not a lot of money, but I don't know how water resistant they are. A few drops would probably run off, but in a rainstorm, they'd probably get soaked.

I have some. Love 'em! They got a little wet in a rainstorm a few weeks ago, and it was no problem. Nothing soaked through, and they seem extremely durable. Drums were dry.
Agreed on the teardrop design. And I like how the zippers go the length of the drum. Makes it really easy to get onto a big kick drum.

I've been using mine for about a year now and I still love them. Best soft bags I've used. Mine have gotten a little wet from load outs in the rain but never soaked. No problems with them though.

Another plug for them, I just bought their Ogio hardware sled about amonth ago and couldn't be happier with it also. The 38" model is perfect for putting all of my stands in and it rolls around much easier than the previous hardware bag I had with wheels. Have to take my hihat stand apart to get in in there but no worries. Plenty of room. Takes up less space in my SUV also.
